Zoren Legaspi Reveals The Secret Of His Enduring Marriage To Carmina Villaroel, Glad To Be Part Of A Hit Show Like 'Ika-6 Na Utos'

ZOREN LEGASPI and Carmina Villaroel’s relationship is now one of the most stable in showbiz as they’ve been together for 17 years now. What’s the secret? “Siguro it’s because we always keep our communication lines open,” he says. “Also, pareho naman kaming madaling pakisamahan at family oriented. After ma-declare na wala kaming taping for our respective shows noong December 18, our family flew to Japan to experience winter for a few days at balik din kami rito sa Manila to make sure dito kami aabutan ng Pasko.”

He is proud to be part of a super hit show like “Ika-6 na Utos”. ‘When they called me to do a role for this show, katatapos ko lang sa ‘Encantadia’ and I was planning to rest for a while,” he says. “Pero nang malaman kong ‘Ika-6 na Utos’, I accept it right away kasi I’ll be happy to be part of this long running show na pinag-uusapan ng lahat.”

His inclusion in the show was actually done all in a hurry.”The next day after they called me, nag-taping na agad ako as Lyon, the new love interest of Sunshine Dizon as Emma. Normally, I won’t do that, yung biglaan. But gusto ko rin kasing makatrabaho rito si Direk Laurice Guillen, who I’ve never worked with before, so excited ako to do it. I’m now really happy to be part of the ‘Ika-6 na Utos’ family. Everyone is very professional kaya nage-enjoy ako rito. At maganda ang role ko as Lyon na mabait kay Sunshine. Kaya lang, sa story ngayon, parang magkakabalikan na sina Emma and Gabby Concepcion, so I don’t know what will happen to my character.”

HIs wife, Carmina, is now also with GMA-7 in “Kambal, Karibal”. “Oo nga, e. Ewan ko ba kung bakit sunod siya nang sunod sa’kin,” he laughs. “But we’re happy to be Kapuso. Freelancers naman kami pareho so we can work anywhere.”

How about their twins, Mavy and Cassy? “Andaming kumukuha. They’re turning 17 na. They dance so ‘Eat Bulaga’ and also ‘ASAP’, but hindi pa sila fully decided kung magso-showbiz sila. Si Cassy is very good at hosting. Si Mavy naman, pang-matinee idol talaga ang dating at 5’10” na ang height. But Carmina and I won’t decide for them. Although nandiyan na yung chance, hindi namin sila pipilitin. It has to come from them mismo and, as parents, we’ll just support them. Personally, okay lang sa’king mag-showbiz sila kasi ako mismo, the industry has been very good to me. Ayoko lang, dun sa babae ko, baka maligawan agad. Kapag nakita kong nakikipag-holding hands, baka sumugod ako sa set, parang Annabelle Rama.”

He wants them to realize that showbiz is hard work, not all glamour and fame. “Sabi ko sa kanila, once they sign up with any network, dapat magseryoso sila. There will be a series of workshops to prepare them and it’s not gonna be easy. Ang takot nila, pareho silang mas at home to talk in English. Sabi ko, puede naman silang magsanay sa Tagalog, basta pagbutihan lang nila.”

For 2018, he plans to put up his own production company. “Matagal ko nang pinaplano ito. Kating-kati na ako at matagal ko nang kinakamot. I want to produce and direct a movie, preferably an action film kasi ang dami ng gumagawa ng drama at romantic-comedies, so para maiba naman. Sana, matuloy, if God would will it.”
