Piolo Pascual talks about his role in OTJ which received a standing ovation at Cannes, his important role as father to son Inigo Pascual and now he has a new role as a mentor on Promil Pre-School i-Sh
Piolo Pascual is indeed a busy man. Not only is his teleserye Apoy sa Dagat
, continues to be the most watched program in its timeslot but he recently got back from France after gracing the 66th Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of On the Job
Piolo plays the role of an NBI agent in OTJ who’s torn between family loyalty and his pursuit of justice. "I play Francis, an NBI agent.” In the meantime, Piolo is still taping for his teleserye wherein he portrays the character Ruben, a man who will do anything to be with the woman he loves.
As for the most important role he plays? “Being a dad to Inigo,” Piolo said. The proud dad also shared some info on how successful Iñigo is in school. “Heartthrob sa school yun. Maraming mga babae sa States, medyo aggressive dun so nakakatuwa naman since he studies in a Christian school. Medyo ang focus nya pag-aaral muna, nag-sa-soccer siya, theater arts, kasama siya sa musical ng school nila so madami siyang diversions so far so medyo yun muna.”
The Apoy Sa Dagat star admitted that he is not a strict parent. Piolo said he wants Iñigo to be able to decide on his own and learn from his mistakes, which is why he does not give him restrictions on what to do. “There are things that you have to discover on your own as a person na dinadaanan. So ayoko naman maging ignorante yung bata, ayoko naman na hindi niya alam kung ano yung dapat pagdaanan... Pero siyempre bilang magulang, nakaalalay rin tayo. At nagdadasal na sana hindi siya mapariwara (laughs),” he added.
That’s why Piolo Pascual is fit for his new role as a mentor in Promil Pre-School i-Shine Talent Camp 2!
