Philippine showbiz is an industry wide enough to accommodate hundreds of our amazing local artists. However, it is a challenge for would-be celebrities to stand out among the long list of actors and actresses who already made a mark on the scene. On the hunt for a big break, some decide to move outside the country and based themselves into another – so they could make better use of their potential. This is why Teejay Marquez took a chance by going to Indonesia. It was a long shot but it was something that proved out to be worth trying in the end.
Presently, the Kapamilya actor is hard at work as part of the Indonesian TV show, “Siapa Takut Jatuh Cinta (Who’s Afraid To Fall In Love?)”. Apparently, the series is a spin-off of the hit Taiwanese love story “Meteor Garden“, which, coincidentally, was also dubbed in the Philippines back in the early 2000s. This, according to him, is the reason why he couldn’t yet take any project offers in the country.
As shared by Teejay with Philippine Entertainment Portal, he was supposed to do a movie with Regal Films, but he couldn’t squeeze it in his schedule just yet. It would appear that the show, which aired only last year in November, has become in-demand among the Indonesian viewers.
“Number 1 din kasi yung show dito kaya medyo hindi makahanap ng free time.”
While he said that he was planning to come back to the Philippines once his project was over, Teejay couldn’t give an exact date.
Prior to his role, Teejay also starred in ABS-CBN shows “The Greatest Love“, “Dream Dad“, and occasionally appears as a guest performer in “ASAP“. The actor also played roles in a handful of series in GMA-7 and TV5.
This only proves that the young star is passionate about his craft! Although we’d love to see him the Philippine spotlight for sure! For the mean time, you go break a leg, Teejay!
What can you say about Teejay Marquez’s snagging a role in Indonesian TV series “Siapa Takut Jatuh Cinta”? Do you think that he ought to continue doing acting projects in their country, or work on his career as an actor here in the Philippines? Which one of his roles do you think was his best yet?
