In the past, we have grown to love Edu Manzano for his bigger-than-life roles on television and the big screen. The seasoned actor has starred in countless iconic films, yet his name isn’t as known today as it was in the past. What is Edu Manzano up to nowadays?
Today, the 62-year-old actor and host is currently under the wing of the Kapuso network. In the past, he was groomed by ABS-CBN network, but due to conflict of interests, Edu decided to switch boats. Now, he appears regularly on Eugene Domingo’s game show, “Celebrity Buff.”
Rumor has it that Edu, who is known for his exemplary hosting skills, was supposed to have his own gameshow in the Kapuso network. However, for whatever reason, this plan did not push through, which caused the actor to work with Uge instead.
In an interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal, when asked if he has qualms about guesting in a show as opposed to hosting it himself, Edu Manzano revealed that it’s good to experience different genres as an artist. In fact, he himself has dabbled in acting, modelling, and hosting fields throughout the years.
“Kung ikaw ay isang artista, gugustuhin mo talaga na masubukan mo ang lahat. Minsan action, drama, comedy. Ako swerte lang ako, nasubukan ko lahat pati gameshow.
Since he already had a taste of the biggest rival networks in the country, what differences has he observed? For Edu, one of the strongest points of both networks is their different fortes, which also determines their individualism as a network:
“Ang bawat network may kanya-kanyang lakas eh. ‘Yung sinasabi nga nilang mga strong points. Sa Kapuso, nakikita ninyo fantasy, marami silang mga ganoong klaseng tema. Sa ABS naman, nandun naman ‘yung drama, kung saan sila nakilala.”
