John Prats is excited about nephew’s showbiz debut


082016-JojnPrats_main.jpgJohn Prats was very happy for his nephew Nathan Linsangan after the latter was recently launched as part of the new batch of Goin’ Bulilit stars.

The Banana Sundae star’s contract renewal with ABS-CBN came less than a week after the introduction of the new stars on the youth gag show.

“Well nae-excite ako kasi ano eh, ‘yun ‘yon eh, same age kami nung pumasok ako. Kasi 8-years-old ako nung pumasok ako eh tapos same pa ang genre,” he said of the only son of his sister Camille Prats with her late husband Anthony Linsangan.

John and Camille were both former cast members of the hit ‘90s youth-oriented show Ang TV

According to John, he especially reminded Nathan to “enjoy” his moments as part of the show.

What advice did he give his nephew?

Nakakatanda lang ng feeling kasi parang next generation na ng Prats. Nakita ko kasi gustong-gusto niya eh, so excited ako talaga for Nathan,” he added.

Who decided for Nathan to try out his luck in showbiz?

Bigla lang eh. My pamangkin Nathan, sabi niya sa lola niya gusto niyang mag Goin’ Bulilit. Kasi siguro nanonood siya ng Goin Bulilit tapos nakita niya na nag-e-enjoy. Sabi ko, sige I’ll talk to Direk Bobot [Mortiz],” he shared.

What’s more is that nobody really “taught” Nathan how to become an actor.

Ganon lang talaga siya, very makwento, ma-chika, hyper and mahilig magbiro. So talagang nasa kanya siguro ang dugong artista,” shared John.

Despite having the “access” to Goin Bulilit’s Direk Bobot, John proudly revealed that Nathan did not take the easy route to get on the show.

Kasi siyempre kailangan dumaan pa rin sa proseso ‘yan eh. So nag-audition siya tapos nakita ni Direk Bobot na masaya so nag-trial ng ilan. Tapos hanggang na-welcome na siya finally na maging part ng Goin’ Bulilit,” he ended.
