Ruru Madrid To Be Launched To Full Stardom As A Blind Young Crimefighter In New Primetime Show This 2018

RURU MADRID’s career is on a roll these days. He just won his first acting award at the recent PMPC TV Awards as best actor for his performance as Ybarro in “Encantadia”. And now, after supporting Dingdong Dantes in Book 2 of “Alyas Robin Hood”, he’s being launched to full stardom in a new primetime soap, tentatively titled “K9 Detective” as he will have a canine friend in the story after he character he plays loses his eyesight. He’s also part of the Vic Sotto-Dawn Zulueta Metro Filmfest entry this Christmas, “Meant to Beh”.

“Sobrang dami ng blessings,” he says. “I remember when I was chosen to play Ybarro, ang daming tumutol, na-bash ako nang husto, pero heto, dahil sa role na yun, nanalo ako ng unang acting award ko kaya salamat sa pamba-bash nyo, na-inspire ako to prove myself. Salamat din sa GMA Artist Center at sa handler ko, sa manager kong si Direk Maryo de los Reyes, at ang mentor ko noon sa ‘Protege’ na si Phillip Salvador na malaki talaga ang naitulong para magpursigi akong pagbutihan ang craft ko.”

He won as best actor in a tie with Dingdong Dantes for “Alyas Robin Hood”. How does it feel? “Naku, napakalaking karangalang manalo akong kasama si Kuya Dingdong kasi idol ko talaga siya ever since. Sabay pa nga kaming umakyat on stage to get our trophies. Napakabait na tao niya at matulungin sa isang baguhang gaya ko. Napatunayan ko yan after makasama ko siya sa ‘Alyas Robin Hood’. So proud akong nang manalo ako, tie kaming dalawa.”

And how does he feel that he’s just the second choice for his new show as it was first offered to Alden Richards? “Naku, nang mabalitaan ko yan, ang laki talaga ng pasasalamat kong sa akin ito ipinagkatiwala ng GMA kasi si Alden, Alden Richards na yun. I’m just so happy and thankful na sa’kin napunta ang ganito kalaking project. Para i-offer nila sa’kin yung show na unang kinonsider si Alden, talagang sobrang na-excite ako. Ang laking blessing nito at napi-feel kong simula ito ng isang bago at magandang chapter sa career ko.”

Ruru is reunited with his ka-love team, Gabbi Garcia, in his new show, but off cam, he’s currently being linked to Asia’s Next Top Model winner Maureen Wroblewitz.
