Angel Jones talks about how she supports her son Tony Labrusca on his showbiz journey.
Angel Jones is one proud mother to son Tony Labrusca whose performance in the hit series La Luna Sangre has been praised by viewers. Angel remarked that she did not expect that Tony would grow as an actor in such a short period of time.
“Ever since he was little, I knew that he was a magical boy. I just feel super proud of him. I knew he’d make it but I just didn’t know it would be this fast. To see it happening so fast is pretty amazing and to see ‘yung character niya,” she said.
She shared that Tony has always dreamed of portraying a unique character ever since he was young boy. “It’s funny because ever since he was little, he always felt that he was a Tekken (a video game) fighter. He was jumping around, gymnastics, as in magulo siya as a little boy so it is nice to see that he’s playing the characters he’s always dreamed of when he was a kid so that makes me feel happy for him,” she shared.
The former Kulay band member supports her son every step of the way on his journey in the entertainment industry. She relayed that she helps her son look on the bright side when things get rough.
“I am not a perfect mom. No one is perfect but what I love instilling in my son is to be authentic, you know do not be showbiz and to always be somehow, in any way possible, inspire him positively when there is something negative. I try to give a positive comeback or let’s look at it at a different perspective. That for me as a mother, that’s how I want to support him. How can I change your mind about that subject? How can we look at that differently?” she said.
When it comes to relationships and matters of the heart, Angel fully trusts Tony with his decisions. Angel added that Tony is actually focused now on his work and being in a relationship is not his priority at the moment.
“To be honest, he doesn’t even want to be in a relationship. We’re kind of the same, we are very driven with work and he knows that a relationship requires 24 hours of your time emotionally and if you are not prepared to do that, you shouldn’t be in one so he himself agrees with that. I know when he’s ready he will be. I will feel jealous because I will miss him because part of his heart [will be] with someone else but I trust him, I really do. I know he will have a relationship when the time is right. When he is emotionally stable and I know he will find someone that just as emotionally stable, too. So I trust him with his decisions on that,” she stated.
