Siyempre masaya pero ano kasi ‘yun eh pangarap ko na isinantabi ko na before kasi parang dati lahat ng shows na ginagawa ko iyon ‘yung pangarap ko. Gusto ko maging best actor kasi nong bata ako kahit sa school gusto ko na may award kasi ‘yun ang nagve-verify na okay ang ginagawa mo. Pero nong ang dami kong ginagawa pero hindi ako nananalo parang sabi ko malabo ata so nong time na ‘yun sabi ni mama, ‘Bakit mo ba ginagawa ‘yun para sa award? Gawin mo siya kaya nga artista, kasi may mga stories na kailangan malaman ng mga tao’,” he said in an interview with PUSH


He shared that he was hesitant to do the “Drawing” episode initially because he was thinking that he might not be able to bag an award again. But his mother reminded him that he should not do it for the award but instead to tell a meaningful story. 


Gaya nong MMK na ‘yun, noong in-offer sa akin ayaw ko siya kasi sabi ko maghihirap naman ako pagkatapos may iba naman na mano-nominate kasi sobrang bitter ko na talaga so sabi ni mama, ‘Huwag  mo siyang gawin para sa award. Gawin mo siya kasi like tulad niyang si CJ (the letter sender) ang daming ibang tao na hindi nakakaalam ng situation niya na ganon pala ‘yung mga nararamdaman ng deaf community and deaf people.’ So sabi ko nga parang oo nga in a way ‘yung kwentong ganon kailangan ma-interpret at mabigyan ng justice sa TV,” Nash said.  


Without expecting anything, Nash was surprised that he was nominated this time and was given an acting award. “Iyon ‘yung first role na ginawa ko na para sa ibang tao at hindi para sa akin na para manalo, tapos doon pa ako nanalo so sobrang solid,” he said.


On what’s next for him, Nash shared that he will star in an ABS-CBN series. He also relayed that he worked with director Brillante Mendoza for an upcoming movie. 


Meron ngayon A Soldier's Heart. Tapos meron din ako ginawang movie with direk Brillante Mendoza pero ‘yun wala pang details about non pero tapos na namin gawin. Pero alam mo naman si direk Brillante hindi siya nagbibigay ng [buong] script so di ko pa rin nakikita ‘yung buong pelikula, hindi ko alam ‘yung kabuuan ng story so lahat kami, masu-surprise kami,” he said.
