As his popular primetime soap Since I Found You reaches its finale week, Piolo Pascual said he has enjoyed playing the role Nathan in the lighthearted romance. After the series ends, the Kapamilya heartthrob said he will be headed to Marawi to start work on his new movie project with Robin Padilla. Piolo said getting rest is a luxury for him right now. “Iniisip ko rin naman yung pahinga (laughs). Nagkakaroon naman yun paminsan-minsan, mga pa-nakaw nakaw,” he said during the Since I Found You presscon held last August 8 inside the ABS-CBN compound.
During a sit-down chat with the media, Piolo revealed that he had already been given multiple chances to join politics via offers to run for certain positions. “Meron, marami oo. Natatawa lang ako siyempre hindi ko na ini-entertain. Sabi ko, ‘Busy po ako.’ So hanggang dun lang. It ends there. I’m just showing them that I’m not interested. Wala na naman literally lumalapit so wala rin naman tayo sa survey so alam naman siguro ng tao na wala akong panahon para sa politics,” he said.
Piolo shared that nothing can persuade him to consider running for public office. “Wala, I believe that I have a better platform being in showbiz and all. I don’t need politics. Besides I didn’t study politics and maski bayaran mo ako ng isang bilyon hindi ako tatakbo. Baka takbuhan ko (laughs). Okay lang ako. Ayoko na sa bingit ng kamatayan yung buhay ko. Hindi ko kaya,” he explained.
