Jason Francisco talks about working with Toni Gonzaga and how he's learning a lot from her.
Pinoy Big Brother ex-housemate Jason Francisco is very happy that with the fantaserye Kokey @ Ako, he gets to work with PBB host Toni Gonzaga. While he was inside the Big Brother house, Jason would only see Toni on the screen every nomination and eviction night. Now that he is acting with her in Kokey, Jason has become a fan of the actress who has a unique knack for comedy. "Kapag humirit si Toni talagang nakakatawa. Mas nakakatawa siya kapag nagkukwentuhan lang kami sa set. Maraming magagandang babae na katulad niya pero kaunti lang 'lsquo;yung kagaya niyang nakakatawa."
Jason also shared that when it comes to handing showbiz life, Toni would often give him important advice. "Lagi niyang sinasabi sa amin na magipon kami. Huwag din daw lalaki ang ulo. Dapat din daw mahalin namin ang trabaho."
Kokey @ Ako is also top-billed by Toni'rsquo;s good friend Vhong Navarro. Jason revealed that there had been times when he couldn'rsquo;t finish his scenes because Vhong would make him to laugh. "Sobra talagang nakakatawa si Kuya Vhong. Sa set lagi niya akong pinapatawa kaya tuloy hindi ko magawa 'lsquo;yung mga eksena ko. Wala naman siyang sinasabi pero 'lsquo;yung mukha niya nakakatawa na. Ilang beses tuloy ako naka-cut. Pero tinuturuan niya ako minsan paano 'lsquo;yung tiyempo sa tamang pagpapatawa."
However, the 22-year-old Mindore'ntilde;o knows that he should still be serious with his job as an actor. One reason, he explained, was that he doesn'rsquo;t want to be scolded by director Wenn Deramas. "Bago ko pa makilala si Direk Wenn may mga nagsasabi na sa akin na masungit daw siya, matapang. Sa experience ko naman sa kanya, one time pa lang naman niya ako napapagalitan. Wala raw kasi ako sa focus. Inaantok na siguro ako kasi madaling araw na rin 'lsquo;yun. Pagod na ako kaya 'lsquo;yung linya ko parang sinasabi ko lang na walang ka feelings feelings. Nag-sorry ako agad."
Jason'rsquo;s leading lady in Kokey @ Ako is his PBB ka love team and real life girlfriend Melai Cantiveros. Jason explained that he and Melai rarely get to be together because Melai is more busy compared to him. Jason also admitted that getting married is still not in their plans. "May nakita akong singsing pero ang mahal, 65 thousand. Hindi ko pa kaya 'lsquo;yun. Bente dos anyos pa lang ako. Siya rin bata pa. Tumutulong pa ako sa pamilya ko. Malayo pa sa mga isip namin na magpakasal. Siguro ngayon ay magsasaya lang muna kami."
