Jommy Teotico says he is thankful that he is still being considered by ABS-CBN producers even for small roles.
Despite emerging as the winner of Pinoy Fear Factor last year, Jommy Teotico’s showbiz career did not fly as high as expected. But becoming a star wasn’t his main intention when he joined the reality stunt competition. After over a year since PFF, Jommy told ABS-CBN.com that he is thankful that ABS-CBN is still hiring him even if it’s only for small roles on TV. “Masaya ako kasi tuloy tuloy pa rin ‘yung bigay ng project sa akin, kahit sandaling guesting lang o support role. Okay lang kahit ano basta meron.”
Jommy did support roles in shows like George & Cecil, Your Song presents Love Me Love You, and recently in the Maalaala Mo Kaya episode starring Sid Lucero. He also expressed his deep thanks to Direk Lauren Dyogi, the business unit head of PFF, for including him in the latest project Precious Hearts Romances presents Midnight Phantom top-billed by Rafael Rosell and Denise Laurel. “Thankful ako kay Direk Lauren kasi kinukuha pa rin niya ako. Sa kanya ako nagsimula. Kapag nakikita ko siya laging akong nagte-thank you. Minsan nga nagtataka na siya kung bakit. Sabi ko, ‘Basta thank you sa lahat.’”
If ever he would get a last-minute call to do another small role, Jommy said he would be there immediately. “Wala pa namang nasasabi sa akin kung anong next project. Pero ang nalaman ko dito sa ABS-CBN, biglaan na lang sa ‘yo binibigay ‘yung trabaho. Tatawagan ka ngayon, meeting, tapos taping na bukas, ha ha ha! Hoping pa rin ako na sa susunod e kunin pa rin nila ako.”
He also shared that whenever he has free time, he and his other PFF friends would get together to have fun. “Nagkikita pa rin kami. Si Jose (Sarasola) ang madalas kong makita kasi nga may business kaming sisimulan. Nagkasama kami sa premiere night ng Salt, sina Savannah (Lamsen) tsaka si Marion (Dela Cruz). Dapat kasama si Manuel (Chua) kaya lang may inaasikaso dun sa business niya sa Cabanatuan.”
Jommy added that they never talk about who has more showbiz projects. “Wala namang kaso sa amin ‘yun. Kapag nagkikita kami masaya lang. Friends pa rin kami. Hindi namin iniisip na artista kami.”
