Some people were wondering why former child star Jane Oineza was re-launched as part of Star Magic Circle 2013. She used to be a mainstay in Goin’ Bulilit and appeared in several episodes of Maaalaala Mo Kaya, the most recent of which even earned her a Best Actress nomination at the 2013 New York Festival. But despite her long wait for a big break, the 16-year-old refused to feel discouraged amidst the tough competition in the industry. “Siyempre naisip ko rin naman yun pero positive lang ako. Naisip ko na God has something else in store for me. I’m just waiting lang. Hindi ko naman kinukwestiyon yung mangyayari,” she said in an interview with Push.com.ph.
Jane further shared that she trusts Star Magic to give her projects that will showcase her strengths as an actress. She’s open to do both drama and romantic comedy if given the chance. “Si Mr. M (Johnny Manahan) kasi ang kino-consult kung anong tamang decision for me. In time siguro [pwede ako gumawa ng mature roles]. Pero wala pa rin naman binibigay na project na may ganong paguusap. Wala namang sinasabing [subukan ko gumawa ng ] daring or teenybopper kasi wala pang definite na project.”
Of all the teen male idols in the Kapamilya network, Jane said that she’d like to be paired with Enrique Gil since they previously worked together in Amorosa. “Gusto ko maka-work si John Lloyd (Cruz), pero for sure hindi magiging love team, imposible yun so okay na sa akin yung maka-work lang. Si Quen (referring to Enrique) din gusto ko makasama kasi masaya siya ka-work at nakasama ko na rin kasi siya sa movie dati.”
For her upcoming project, Jane is thrilled to be part of the teleserye Muling Buksan Ang Puso starring Julia Montes, Enchong Dee, and Enrique. It’s going to be a reunion of sorts for her and Julia who was also a “graduate” of Goin’ Bulilit. “Sobrang saya na magkasama na kami ngayon. I’m excited to work with her again and of course with Enrique kasama ko rin sa Amorosa before. Happy ako na ibinigay yung project na ito sa akin. Ang role ko dito, kababata ako ni Julia. Hindi ko pa pwede ibigay yung ibang details pero sana magustuhan ng viewers ang magiging role ko sa soap,” she happily added.
