Zanjoe Marudo says loveteam with Beauty Gonzales works naturally




Zanjoe Marudo couldn't be happier with the ratings of their show Dream Dad, which is consistently included as one of the top daily shows of ABS-CBN.

At the thanksgiving press conference of the show held recently, the Kapamilya actor said he has changed his perception about TV ratings.

“Alam mo, dati, talagang apektadong-apetado ako. Inaalam ko talaga kung ano 'yong mga comments.

“Siyempre ngayon, may natutunan ako.

“Nag-uusap nga kami ng [production manager] namin, 'yong ratings parang bonus na lang 'yon.

“Ang importante sa amin ay nakakapagbigay kami ng magandang show, nakakapagpa-enjoy kami ng mga tao.

“Kasi, mababa man ang ratings or mataas man, 'yong effort na binigay namin at 'yong passion namin sa trabaho ay same.

“'Yon ang importante sa amin, pareho ang ibinibigay namin sa trabaho,” he said.

Despite this realization, Zanjoe admits that sometimes he still feels conscious about how his show fared in the ratings game.

He admitted, “Siyempre, hindi mawawala 'yon kasi naririnig mo sa set na nagse-celebrate ang mga tao.

“'Tapos paggising mo, ang sarap ng feeling na may nagko-congratulate sa 'yo, 'yong mga boss mo.

“Iba 'yong pagpunta mo sa taping, ang sarap ng feeling, alam mo na lahat ng pagod mo nagpe-payoff.”

Meanwhile, the show is currently focusing on the teamup of Zanjoe and Beauty Gonzales. In fact, Netizens have dubbed their loveteam as “BasLex” after their characters named Baste and Alex.

Since this is a family drama, Zanjoe said he and Beauty didn't have to work hard to have onscreen chemistry.

He reasoned, “Feeling ko hindi naman kailangan 'yon kasi ang ganda script namin.

“Kailangan tamang artista lang talaga ang ilalagay.

“So, noong nalaman ko na si Beauty, alam mo 'yon, parang di na namin kailangang pilitin magpaka-sweet o um-effort para pakiligin ang audience.”

He even stressed at the end, “Actually, hindi talaga kami ume-effort para pakiligin ang audience.
