If the trailer of "The Broken Marriage Vow" already made you feel hyped for the show, then Zanjoe Marudo's exclusive details might just make you even more excited.
During his media conference on Tuesday, January 11, the Kapamilya actor shared his preparations for the upcoming series where he will play David Ilustre, whose marriage will be rocked with his extramarital affair.
According to Zanjoe, he watched the BBC Studios' "Doctor Foster" as well as its Korean adaptation, "The World of the Married," to see how the characters were portrayed in the series.
"Pinanood ko siya hindi para kumuha ng tip or para kumuha ng style; pinanood ko siya para hindi ko siya ulitin kung ano man 'yung ginawa nila," said Zanjoe.
"Ang gusto kong ipakita at iparamdam sa tao yung atake ng Filipino - kung paano ang isang tatay at asawa, at ang isang manglolokong biktima. Mas iniba ko para rin hindi nakakasawang panoorin kasi may ibang flavor 'yung version ng Pinoy," he hinted.
While his character and portrayal is something to watch out for, Zanjoe tackled one scene in particular that left him "traumatized" after filming.
Without delving into specifics, Zanjoe shared, "Nanginginig ako kapag naaalala ko 'yung ginawa namin na 'yun. Sa sobrang intense kasi, may emosyon kang nabubuksan sa sarili mo na hindi mo naman maiisip na mae-experience mo o mararamdaman mo 'yung emosyon na 'yun sa totoong buhay."
"Kasi hindi ko naman nararamdaman 'to sa totoong buhay pero dahil sa trabaho mo, nabubuksan eh."
Zanjoe also recalled sharing the same "trauma" with his co-star Jodi Sta. Maria, who was also part of that intense scene.
"After noong scene na 'yun, gabi na namin siya ginawa, kinabukasan, andoon pa rin ako. Parang si Jodi andoon pa rin, ako nanginginig pa rin. Ibang araw na ginagawa namin...medyo traumatic 'yung nangyari," he added.
Nonetheless, the actor assured that they are safe after filming the said scene and are actually very happy with how it turned out.
"Okay naman, safe naman kami lahat and sobrang happy namin doon sa scene na ginawa namin. Kami-kami, nagtutulungan na lang kami kapag nade-depress na kami sa mabigat na scenes namin," he affirmed.
"The Broken Marriage Vow" premieres this January 24 on Kapamilya Primetime Bida at 8:45 PM!
