ARJO ATAYDE is going international. 

After winning the best lead actor award in the Asian Academy Creative Awards for his tour-de-force title role performance in “Bagman”, he is now all set to star in “Cattleya Killer”, a drama-thriller series set for worldwide release produced by ABS-CBN International.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Dan Villegas, he leads a powerhouse cast that includes Christopher de Leon, Jake Cuenca, Jane Oineza, Ricky Davao, Nonie Buencamino, Ria Atayde, Ketchup Eusebio, Frances Makil, Rafa Siguion-Reyna, Jojit Lorenzo, and Zsa Zsa Padilla. “Cattleya Killer” will start locked in production this month.

 “I am so thrilled and honored to work with such an excellent cast,” says Arjo. 

“We will all work together as a single unit in delivering a quality series that every Filipino can be proud of. I love collaborating with the creme de la creme of the industry composed of some of our most respected and accomplished actors. I'm sure everyone has something substantial to contribute to make this series of world class quality.”

Aside from his acting duties, Arjo is also very busy in serving the people of Quezon City as he runs for Congressman in the city’s first district. At the fiesta of San Pedro Bautista in Basilica Minore de San Pedro Bautista in Barangay Damayam, Arjo along with incumbent QC Mayor Joy Belmonte were invited as Hermano Mayor and Hermana Mayor respectively.

He donated 49 laptop units to all the daycare centers in every barangay in QC’s district 1 and he also introduced the latest AI Smart Scan X-ray machine in the Barangay Hall of Barangay Santa Teresita in Quezon City’s District 1.

The AI Smart Scan X-ray is a top-of-the-line diagnostic machine which is the very first technology made in partnership between India, Japan, and The Philippines.

This “AI” or artificial intelligence x-ray is able to determine illness not just in the lungs but in other organs of the body as well. It is capable of detecting 25 chest pathologies including pneumonia, tuberculosis, and cancer. 

The machine could also determine if certain illnesses are building up in different parts of the body and it could also detect diabetes and even Covid-19 – all in one session while producing accurate results in merely two minutes. 

Present with Atayde during the launch of the AI Smart Scan X-ray were TJ Calalay, Joseph Juico, Bernard Herrera, and Charm Ferrer, who are all running as Councilors in Quezon City’s First District, as well as the barangay officials of Area 6 of QC’s District 1.
