Cloie Concepcion prefers hosting but would also like to explore other aspects in showbiz.
Sa pagpasok sa showbiz ng anak ni Gabby Concepcion at ng dating aktres at host na si Jenny Syquia na si Cloie Concepcion, pinaghahandaan na ng dalaga ang kanyang pagsabak sa industriya. Nasimulan na nga ito ng pagpirma niya ng kontrata sa Viva Management at ang pagsasailalim niya sa ilang mga workshop.
Ayon sa panayam sa kanyang ina na dati ding Viva talent, sa ngayon ay inihahanda ni Cloie ang kanyang sarili sa show business. “Having signed with Viva she’s going to have a solid base in Tagalog, acting classes, as well as hosting so she can be able to do whatever she wants because she can sing and dance. It’s getting her ready for all the aspects of showbiz.”
Ayon kay Cloie na half-sister ni KC Concepcion, kinukundisyon nito ang sarili sa mga kailangang gawin. Aniya, “Well right now I’m in [an] acting workshop and Tagalog class and soon to be in dancing class as well. I’m hoping to maybe host also and see what I can do with my singing and dancing and acting… So we’re just laying a base so it’s easier for me later on when I’m going to start working.”
Nais ni Cloie na masubukan ang iba’t ibang apseto ng show business tulad ng pag-arte sa telebisyon at pelikula ngunit sa ngayon ay mas prioridad nito na maging host tulad ng kanyang ina. “Right now, I would love to do hosting cause my mom used to do hosting and it seems like fun.”
Buo ang suporta ni Jenny sa pagpasok ng kanyang panganay sa showbiz dahil nakikita niyang ito rin ang gusto ng kanyang dalaga. “As a mom I try to support her in everything that she needs help [in]. Not just in show business but also school, relationships… anything that she needs help or asks for advice. And it’s really just doing the job of a mother.”
Pagdating naman sa intriga, natanong si Jenny kung nakikita niya bang handa si Cloie sa mga isyu na maaring ibato sa kanya. “I think so because she’s very secure as a person. She has grown up in a very loving and close family so she knows who she is. She has wonderful friends for a very long time. That’s reality. Her life, her friends, her family and no matter what happens in showbiz, nobody can take that away. So I think if you do enter showbiz, it’s good if you’re coming from a very stable foundation because that way you know whatever some stranger might say about you, you know that that’s not true. And if you are insecure and if you have doubts maybe it’s not the best industry to be in.”
Nais din ni Cloie na makasama sa isang proyekto ang kapatid sa ama na si KC Concepcion. Sa mga Instagram accounts nilang magkakapatid, makikitang malapit sila sa isa’t isa ngayon. “Yeah, I want to work with her. I’d love to do that. We always see and talk and say ‘what if we did this, and what if we did that’ so it would be really amazing to get to work with her.”
Aminado si Jenny na hindi pa sila nagkikita ng ama ni Cloie na si Gabby. “No I haven’t seen him since Cloie was one so I haven’t seen him in 17 years. But I’m sure, you know showbiz is a very small world and I’m sure we’ll see him somewhere and that’s okay. I mean, there’s no hard feelings.” At sa tanong na kung sakaling muli silang magkatrabaho ng dating asawa, “(laughs) That would be a comedy, I really can’t imagine that and I think my involvement in showbiz is pretty much going to be the role of a manager or in hosting or I’d like to do a reality show, something like that. But I can’t imagine getting into mainstream acting again because it’s really changed. When I was acting there were so many films and now it’s all the teleseryes. So I can’t imagine that to myself but never say never.”
Maging si Cloie ay hindi pa nakikita ang ama ngunit ayon sa kanya, “I really look forward to seeing him when the time is right.”
