Having gained recognition for his portrayals in ABS-CBN shows like “Mula Sa Puso” and “Angelito: Ang Batang Ama,” JM has established himself as one of the most talented actors of his generation. With this new network contract, JM aspires to further blossom as an actor by taking more challenging roles and offering fresh content to audiences worldwide.
JM shared how the solid trust of the network gave him not just a job but his life purpose, “Ilang beses na sa buhay ko na akala ko wala akong mapupuntahan, pero palagi akong gina-guide ng ABS-CBN sa tamang daan, at hanggang ngayon I am still here, I’ve found my purpose,” he said.
From a childhood wonder to now one of the emerging leading men in his generation, Zaijian who made a mark in the industry with his remarkable role as Santino in “May Bukas Pa,” continues to evolve and mature as an actor.
With his new contract with the Kapamilya network, Zaijian expressed gratitude to the people behind the scene, whom he considers as a new family. “Walang iwanan sa hirap at ginhawa, iyon po ang pagiging solid Kapamilya, buong buhay ko po nasa showbiz ako lumaki, ang dami kong nabuong pamilya sa likod ng camera, at dahil doon nagkaroon ako ng bagong pamilya,” he shared.
Present at the contract signing were ABS-CBN chairman Mark Lopez, ABS-CBN president and CEO Carlo Katigbak, ABS-CBN COO of broadcast Cory Vidanes, ABS-CBN group CFO Rick Tan, ABS-CBN head of TV production and Star Magic head Laurenti Dyogi, and talent managers Cris Tapang and Portia Dimla.
