Epy Quizon Supports Zsa Zsa Padilla On Dating A New GuyEpy Quizon is not aware that his stepmother, Zsa Zsa Padilla, is dating a non-showbiz guy. But he said he will support and is happy for Zsa Zsa because he knows how much she loves his late father, the King of Comedy, Dolphy.
Rumors persist that Zsa Zsa is now dating a non-showbiz guy more than a year after Dolphy passed away because of his failing health. Epy said he was away for a couple of months, so he was surprised when he heard the issue just as soon as he came back to the Philippines.
It's okay to him that Zsa Zsa is dating again. He knows how much she loved Dolphy and that is not questionable.
"Ang sa akin talaga—and totoo ito sa lahat ng mga kapatid ko naman—kung saan siya maligaya, maligaya kami para sa kanya. You know, she deserves all the happiness in the world."
Wherever the Divine Diva is happy, then the whole Quizon family will be happy for her, Epy said.
There is no need for Zsa Zsa to ask for their blessings. As long as she's happy, then the family will support her. They will not take away the chance for her to be happy.
That's his message to her--that she be happy. "Kung anuman nga yung makapagpapaligaya sa kanya, hindi namin ipagdadamot sa kanya iyon. Susuportahan pa namin 'yon."
He and Zsa Zsa still talk. Just recently, they had a family meeting, although he was not able to attend that because he was in Singapore. His brother and sister came home to the Philippines, so the family met.
Meanwhile, he shared what he was doing in Singapore. He did a Singaporean film, "Unlucky Plaza," a story about a Filipino who was scammed by Singaporeans. Epy played the hostage taker.
One of the producers of the film is a good friend of Epy. He also helped that producer in the casting of the movie. He introduced the producer to some of the artists in the Philippines, but the producer still wanted Epy to do the movie.
It's a good role, a role worth doing and watching, Epy said. He also enjoyed doing the film.
He starred in the film with Singaporean artists Adrian Pang and Janice Kho. This is Epy's third foreign film. The first one was in Taiwan with Bayani Agbayani. He also did a film in Malaysia.
Is there a difference in filming for foreign films? Epy said there's not much difference, except for the fact that he's constantly on his toes when he's in another country. He tries to give more than his best because he wants to represent Filipino artists well.
Aside from the Singaporean film, he's also doing an indie biopic entitled "Heneral Luna." He will play the role of Apolinario Mabini.
The casts of the said indie film are John Arcilla and Mylene Dizon and the director is Jerold Tarog.
Although it is an indie film, there is a big budget for the movie. In fact, even in the pre-production, the producers already shelled out a big amount of money.
There is also another film they are thinking about.
Epy said it does not matter to him whether he's doing an indie or mainstream film. "For me, a film is a film, di ba? So para sa akin, wala nang ipinagkaiba yung kung ano ang ginagawa mo. Basta ang importante is you do your craft. And you fulfill your craft, di ba?"
