Jayson Gainza has a few good—and funny—stories to tell about one of his closest friends in showbiz, Zanjoe Marudo. The two have worked together in a few shows: Aalog-alog (2006), Pare Koy (2009), and Banana Sundae (2009).

In a phone interview with StarStudio.ph, Jayson recalls one of Zanjoe’s pranks, “Naku, tahimik ’yan, ’tsaka tawa lang nang tawa, pero mamaya nag-iisip na din ng pang joke ’yan, pero patok—minsan lang humirit pero pasok. Dati may kinakain akong biscuit. Sabi ko, ‘Parang iba ang lasa.’ ’Tapos naubos ko. ’Tapos kumain ulit ako. Sabi ko, ‘Iba talaga lasa.’ ’Yan, silang dalawa ni John Prats, nilagyan ng pabango pagkain ko,” he laughingly reveals. “Kaya pala.”

He also comments on Zanjoe’s acting skills: “Maraming nang nagbago. Ngayon magaling na talaga siyang umarte, at minahal na niya trabaho niya. Kaya ngayon lahat ng bagay, nakukuha niya: bahay na pangarap niya sa Batangas [City], sasakyan na pangarap niya. ’Di ko na siya maabot. Haha! Galing talaga. Kaya ’pag nagkita kami, papautangin niya ako.”
