When Zaijian started off as Santino in May Bukas Pa, the public was so enraptured by his charming angelic look that he eventually landed one project after another.
He has been part of various television series— Noah (2010), Ikaw Ay Pag-ibig (2011), Lorenzo’s Time (2012), and he has appeared in several episodes of MMK and Wansapanataym.
At the tender age of 11, Zaijian has already achieved stardom. Amidst his busy schedule, does he still have time to play?
He replies, “Opo. Pero po pag wala pong taping pumapasok po ako. 'Tsaka sa school po, marami naman po akong mga friends 'tsaka kalaro.”
Who does he usually play with? “Ano po, pag sa bahay yung mga kapatid ko po tapos si Papa. Yung sa school po yung mga kalaro ko 'tsaka best friends.”
In between tapings, Zaijian finds ways to make the most out of his idle time, either by recharging his energy or entertaining himself.
He says, “Kapag wala po kasing kasamang bata, nag-aano lang ako, natutulog. Tapos naglalaro ng iPad.”
He enumerates Dead Trigger, Logo Quiz, and Zombie Café as his top three favorite games on iPad.
Why does he enjoy playing these games? Zaijian answers with a smile, “Ano po, maganda. 'Tsaka yung Dead Trigger, mahilig din po ako sa mga zombie-zombie, e.”
Does he play alone? “Ano po, puwedeng multi-player. Yung mga kapatid ko, sumasali rin.”
If he would be given a chance to play a character from a game, what would it be?
“Gusto ko po, ano, Iron Man!” Zaijian gushed.
