Kuala Lumpur — For the past two years, Malaysian actor Tony Eusoff has been without a job as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and Movement Control Order (MCO).

The actor said that he missed going to film sets, and often feared that the indefinite MCO could force him into bankruptcy.

“Even though things have been relaxed a little for the creative industry, it is not easy adapting to the new normal. We have to adhere to strict standard operating procedures (SOP) and do our best,” the 44-year-old star of P.Ramlee The Musical said in a news report today.

Tony shared that acting was his only source of income, and he had to fork out all his savings to survive during the MCO.

“For the first time in my life, I feel that I am not contributing to society as I am out of a job, and being jobless is a strain on the mental health,” he said.

However, Tony is fortunate to have rediscovered his passion for drawing, New Straits Times reported.

“I have not been drawing for two decades, and it is good that the MCO has helped me rediscover an old hobby.”

Despite exercising at home, the actor shared that the MCO had also made him gain weight.

To beat his boredom, he became a volunteer at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre which has been transformed into a vaccination centre.

“I have been a volunteer for a month now. It is good to go out and breathe in the fresh air.”

“We all miss our families as we cannot travel home yet. But what is more important is staying safe from Covid-19,” said Tony, who advised Malaysians to get vaccinated and observe the SOPs.

Born Apr 3, 1977, Anthony Joseph Hermas Rajiman, or more popularly known as Tony Eusoff is a Malaysian actor who is famous for his roles in TV dramas, theatre and films as a singer, model, and host. /TISG
