When asked who he looks up to in showbiz, Jon Lucas was quick to respond, “I want to be John Lloyd Cruz someday.” On why he wants to follow in the footsteps of the dramatic actor, he said, “Alam naman po natin na sobrang galing talaga niya na aktor. Siya talaga ‘yung artista na pag trabaho, trabaho talaga.”
Jon revealed to Push.com.ph that he always wanted to act for a long time now. “Pangarap ko talaga na maging artista,” he said. Now that he is part of Star Magic batch 2013, he stated that it has been a dream come. “Sobrang saya kasi last year lang nong pinapanood ko sila, sana someday makasama ako doon, pero ngayon naman kasama na ako, kaya ang sarap sa pakiramdam.”
He relayed that he’s very thankful to have been given the opportunity to star in the now defunct teleserye Kahit Konting Pagtingin. He shared that he enjoyed working with his co-actors in the soap. “Masaya po lalo na sa set kasi sobrang bait nila, kahit na sina kuya Sam Milby, Paolo Avelino, ‘yung mga beteranong artista rin, sobrang babait kaya sobrang saya na ‘yun ang first teleserye ko sa ABS-CBN,” he said.
The young star remarked that he appreciates the support that he’s receiving even at this early point of his career. “Sobrang nakakatuwa kasi kahit nagsisimula pa lang ako nakikita kong marami ng sumusuporta sa akin,” he said. He promises his fans that he will stay grounded no matter what. “Kailangan talaga kahit anong mangyari, kung ano ka nong nagsimula ka, kahit ano ‘yung narating mo ngayon, dapat ganon ka pa rin, huwag kang magbabago lalo na sa mga fans mo,” he stated.
Jon said he feels blessed that he is part of the Star Magic family. “Parang magkakapatid talaga lalo na pag may practice, may rehearsals, mga ganon, lagi kaming tawanan lang, ini-enjoy lang namin ‘yung trabaho namin,” he revealed.
On who he’s close to in his batch, Jon shared, “Close ko naman talaga lahat sila eh pero ang lagi ko lang kasama ay sina Alexander Diaz at Julian Estrada. Pero close kami lahat.”
