Jerome Ponce talks about what he learned in 'Be Careful With My Heart'


041713-jerome_main.jpgUnlike his batch mates in the recently launched Star Magic Circle, Jerome Ponce got his first exposure to acting on stage joining several theater productions in high school. After being discovered by a talent scout, he landed the role of Luke, the dutiful eldest son in the hit daytime series Be Careful With My Heart.

“I feel I am very lucky kasi kami yung napili na Star Magic's batch of talents this year 2013 and sobrang thankful talaga kami. Itong chance na ito ay sana magtuloy-tuloy ito at hindi namin sasayangin ito,” he said after being launched alongside Khalil Ramos, Julia Barretto, Julian Estrada, Jane Oineza, Michelle Vito, Jon Lucas, Janella Salvador, and Kit Thompson. “Ang pinaka-close ko siyempre una sa guys si Khalil kasi nakasama ko siya sa ASAP and sa girls naman si Janella pero kung hindi ko siya kasama si Jane dahil makulit akong tao eh, sila yung unang naging close sa akin,” he said.

The teen actor said he has learned a lot from acting on television these past few months. “Madami akong natutunan unang una sa ugali dapat as Jerome Ponce dapat pagdating sa ugali mas maging Luke ako. What I mean is kailangan marunong ka makisama. Pangalawa kailangan mong mahalin at intindihin yung storya ni Luke. Isa pang natutunan ko is yung kailangan ka matuto makihalubilo sa buo, hindi lang sa katrabaho mo kundi sa mga staff, crew. Turingin mong pamilya rin. Dapat yun kasi sila rin yung tumutulong sa ‘yo para maging maayos kang aktor, na maganda ang image mo at siyempre dahil ikaw na rin ang tinuturing nilang pamilya dahil sa araw-araw kayo halos nag-te-taping, kayo ang magkakasama at dapat nagmamahalan,” he explained.

After working on the Be Careful With My Heart set, Jerome said he has gotten to know Richard Yap and Jodi Sta. Maria well. “Si Richard Yap very, very bagets na masaya, makulit. Masaya siya as in. Hindi siya yung ini-expect mo na parang professional lang who goes there to work dahil businessman siya. Ka-close rin niya yung mga tao and andun siya nakakipag-joke sa amin. Si ate Jodi ang galing umarte, professional talaga sobra and friendly rin,” he said.

Jerome said one of his favorite scenes in the series was during the JS Prom. “Dahil punong-puno siya ng excitement, kilig at siyempre ang saya sobra nung ginawa namin yun kaya inabangan talaga ng mga tao,” he recalled.

Jerome admitted to having had non-showbiz girlfriends in the past, but is currently not dating anyone. “I'm very single, last year pa. I've had four girlfriends. Nag-start siya nung mag-si-16 ako. Yung isa puppy love pero may nagustuhan siyang iba, yung pangalawa parang from another school tapos yung pangatlo wrong lang, yung pang-apat yun na,” he shared.

The talented actor said he would be open to having a love team in the future. “Actually open naman ako, hindi ako nagiging closed to any projects except dun sa mga may grey characters, kasi ayokong tingnan na parang kontrabida. I want to be like friendly Luke. Pagdating sa love team, excited na rin ako kasi gusto ko rin gumawa ng mga eksena na parang kinikilig ako for real. Pero siyempre, dahil sa dami na rin ng na-experience ko sa buhay lalo na sa mga panliligaw, sa pagmamahal, yun ang gusto kong gawin at gamitin para sa acting ko,” he said.
