090315-jao_main.jpgJao Mapa said that he will now be active again in showbiz. The actor relayed to Push.com.ph that he will appear in the pilot episode of an upcoming Kapamilya teleserye.

"Well yeah hopefully [tuloy-tuloy na] in fact kasama ako sa pilot ng Ang Probinsyano and I'm under new management," he said.

Jao was all praises for the lead star of the show Coco Martin. "Okay naman very professional and wala akong masabi, hands down ako [sa kanya], good actor and nice guy also. It's an honor to be working with Coco," he said.

As he is now back again in showbiz, Jao pointed out the other Kapamilya stars that he wants to work with. "Siguro 'yung mga batikan sina Albert Martinez... Ngayon hindi ko pa masabi, there are a lot of artists also who I want to work with in channel 2."

Jao's family is very supportive of his showbiz comeback. "Very supportive, actually my wife is kasi an actress pero stage din siya. Hindi pa siya masyadong kilala, she's a good actress, she does indie films."

The actor enthusiastically shared that he is very fulfilled with his family life. "I'm a very happy to have three kids. My boy just turned 13, may teenager na rin ako and I'm waiting for my other two to turn teenagers. Also it's not easy but sarap to be a father."

He is also very thankful to have a very caring wife. "She's the one who takes care of me, with my physique right now I owe it to her she also [checks] how I look and tells me what to do, what to eat, and exercise."
