MANILA - After his stint in the long-running ''Be Careful With My Heart'' series, young actor Jerome Ponce is set to be paired with Jane Oineza in the upcoming television soap ''Nasan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita.''
In an exclusive interview with Push, the 19-year-old actor revealed that he is grateful for the opportunity to star in another series following his two-year commitment with "Be Careful," which was top-billed by Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap.
"Iniisip ko, 'Does it mean na may potential ba ako?' Pero wala sabi ko lang sa isip ko na sobrang thankful ako na minamahal nila ako at inaalagaan nila ako," he said.
Asked about what it feels like to work with Oineza, Ponce said: "Para sa akin hindi mahirap. Masaya siya, sobrang saya. Lumalabas kami for bonding. Sobrang saya kasama si Jane tapos katrabaho.''
"She's parang happy vibes tapos very, very parang open siya sa akin na pinagkakatiwalaan niya ako," he added.
Ponce also shared what fans can expect from his character in the television series, which will also star other Pinoy Big Brother housemates Joshua Garcia and Loisa Andalio.
"More mature siya kasi I'm a player and more concentrated siya as a college student tapos more on concentrated sa mga problems. It's like 'yung problemado… unlike sa Be Careful na 'pag problemado si Luke there’s always this na magpapagaan ng damdamin ni Luke," he said.
No release date for "Nasan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita" has been released as of writing. Actress Vina Morales and Denise Laurel are some of the big names tied to the project.
