Young Indie Director Zig Dulay Of 'Paglipay' Fame Gets Big Break Directing Telefantasya 'Sirkus' For GMA News & Public Affairs

DIRECTOR ZIG DULAY says both Mikee Quintos and Mikoy Morales are perfect for their roles in “Sirkus” as the lead characters who happen to be twins. “Bagay na bagay sila and they both deliver better than we expected,” he adds.

He also wants to thank Cherie Gil for agreeing to do the contravida role of La Ora, who wants to snatch away the special powers of the twins. “She’s very nice to me nang magkakilala kami sa isang international filmfest in Malaysia where she won best actress for the movie, ‘Sonata’. For ‘Sirkus’, she exceeded all our expectations. Kahit baguhan lang ako, never niyang pinaramdam na isa siyang big name actress sa local showbiz. Walang kaere-ere. I really want to thank GMA News and Public Affairs for giving me this show kasi ang ganda ng concept nila and it promotes positive Filipino family values.”

He has helmed acclaimed indie films like “My Mother’s Maiden Name”, “Bambanti” and “Paglipay”. Has he turned his back on indie flicks and now devotes his time to TV? “No. I just finished a new indie film for Direk Brilliante Mendoza, starring Angel Aquino, Nar Cabico and Kiray Celis, so abangan nyo po yun. Tapos may sisimulan akong isa pang bagong movie so tuloy-tuloy pa rin ako in both the small and the big screen.”
