EXCLUSIVE: Jerome Ponce wants to become a serious actor
070716-jerome_main.jpgAs part of Wansapanataym’s Candy’s Crush episodes, Jerome Ponce said he is happy to acting again this time paired with Loisa Andalio. The 21-year-old actor said he understands that love teams are one way to become popular in showbiz  and he doesn’t mind being paired with someone regularly. "Financially kasi sige let’s go with the love team. Siyempre kung may mag-ki-click ako na love team eh di go. Panigurado uusbong yun. Pero kasi dati yung makita ko lang sarili ko sa TV or sa billboards or magazines at commercials, I’m already so happy. Ngayon I’m done with those eh. Nakaipon na rin ako. Kailangan ko lang ngayon mahalin ko lalo yung craft ko. So I guess kung magkakaroon ako ng love team ewan ko I hope sana may chance pa ako na magkaroon ng love team na mag-ki-click,” he admitted.

Jerome also said he is blessed to be part of ASAP’s regular performers every Sunday. "There’s so many interests ngayon sa ibang love teams and regarding projects I’m thankful dahil medyo semi-regular na ako and next generation kuno sa dancing in ASAP. Mas pinapabuti pa nila kami lalo sayawin. Actually even before I loved dancing pero not dancing like hiphop, ganun. But I knew jazz, mga ganun. Pero minsan kasi nagkakamali talaga. Hindi man halata pero for us, alam namin yun. We rehearse sa ASAP two days in a week na either Friday, Saturday or both. So for now I have go-sees and short guestings sa mga shows I hope,” he said.

With his background in theater, Jerome said it gave him an advantage when he first got his big break in television as Richard Yap’s eldest son in Be Careful With My Heart in 2012. But Jerome said he just wants to concentrate on being in front of the camera from now on. “Siyempre dahil I came from theater and sa teatro very expressive ang eyes and big actions. Nung pumasok ako sa TV marami rin akong nabago like masyado akong exaggerated, masyadong drama, ganun. So natututo rin ako, dun ko nasasabing kung papaano ko napapagbutihan yung craft. Nagpapasalamat din ako like sa Ipaglaban Mo naka-ilang guesting na rin ako. Masaya din dahil natututunan ko lalo kung papano ko ipo-portray yung character. Makikita ako ng mga tao, lalo na ng mga fans as the character, not as Jerome. Pero hindi na ako siguro mag-o-audition sa stage productions ngayon,” he admitted.
