Jessy Mendiola is excited to try the action genre


041711-jessy_main.jpgRight after her last taping day for the teleserye Sabel, Jessy Mendiola said that she immediately taped a Maalaala Mo Kaya episode together with Ejay Falcon and Mark Gil that will be aired Saturday, April 16. After that, the young actress has kept herself busy with a new project, which will supposedly be a month-long TV series to be aired weekly.

Jessy said that she is excited about the said month-long project because it will be in the action genre. Aside from being a welcome change from the usual drama category, she revealed that she has always wanted to try the action field. “Sinabihan din po kasi ako na ayaw din po nila akong sa drama lang, gusto nila iba-iba. Sa ngayon tina-try ko mag-action mag-comedy.” She added that she has been boyish as a kid and action appeals to her, just like her idol, Angel Locsin.

Jessy added that many of her fans are curious what her next regular TV series would be after Sabel. The young actress said that management actually had a talk with her about her next teleserye, but was told not to talk about it yet. “Nag-meeting na kami [ng management] pero hindi pa raw pwedeng sabihin sa mga tao. Gagawa ako ng weekly show [na] parang once-a-week lang muna tapos ‘yung telserye,” she shared. “in the works pa lang siya [so] hindi ko alam kung tuloy na tuloy. Hindi pa po sigurado hanggang nagi-air na kayo.”

She also opened up about what had been the real score between her and former onscreen partner Robi Domingo. The two first worked together in the weekly TV series Boystown in 2009. Since then, the two have been romantically linked, but no relationship ensued.

Jessy admitted that though they got into courtship stage, she never turned down Robi, like what came out in some reports. She clarified that she and Robi have agreed to just be friends in favor of their respective careers. “It was a mutual decision na busy siya sa school, ako bata pa ako nun. Tapos kakasimula pa lang namin non, Boystown pa ‘yon, mga 16 [years old] pa lang ako no’n. Nag-usap kami no’n na huwag na muna.

She also did not deny that she liked Robi even then. “He’s very nice, he’s very smart, very talented so hindi siya mahirap magustuhan.” However, she stressed that she will more likely not consider getting into a relationship even if Robi would pursue her again because her focus now is her career.
