Jerome Ponce aka Luke in Be Careful with My Heart talked about the hardest part of having a broken family in his interview in Tapatan ni Tunying.
Jerome, who failed to pass the auditions of Pinoy Big Brother twice, said that he focused on studying until his manager asked him to audition for the role of Luke on Be Careful With My Heart. Fortunately, he was accepted and was introduced on the daytime show in 2012.
Unlike Jerome’s family on the series, the teen star divulged that his parents separated when he was young and shared his biggest struggle in having a broken family. “Ang pinakamahirap dun kasi po yung ‘di ko naranasan yung kumpletong pamilya na may Sunday… family day. Lalo na ngayon kami sa taping dito, may kainan kami sabay-sabay. Bago kami magtake iniisip ko muna, ano kayang feeling na kasama ko sila dito na kami sabay-sabay kumain, nag-uusap kami about sa school?” he shared.
Jerome promised though that when he has his own family, he will keep them intact and they will only want to enjoy their times together.
Regarding the conclusion of the show which gave him a big acting break, he said, “Hindi pa rin ako makaget over sa isang teleserye na parang pamilya kung saan sanay ang mga tao, may pamilya din naman tayo. Parang feeling ko masarap pa rin magtrabaho sa ganoon na parte ka ng pamilya.”
