After flying to Europe last month to shoot a film in Denmark, Elisse Joson said she is still enjoying her vacation time in the US this month. The 24-year-old actress is part of the cast of iWanTFC’s anthology Horrorscope, specifically as part of the Libra episode which is set in the year 1943.
“Ako dito si Clarissa, bago akong lipat from a different town. So kumbaga nung pagkapasok ko sa bagong community na ito, very mysterious. So hindi nila alam yung pinanggalingan ko. This was actually set in the 1940s and yung Japanese era so ang set up namin dun ay makaluma and sa main story umiikot sa pari which is si sir Bodjie Pascua. And then yung horror papasok kasi yung character ko masasapian ng demonyo. Ang tanong is kung bakit and kung paano. Very exciting ito,” she shared during the Horrorscope mediacon last January 6.
During the event, Elisse was asked if she misses being part of a love team. She and former reel-and-real life partner McCoy de Leon parted ways in 2018. The 24-year-old actress said she is happy being a solo actress.
“Ever since naman, kahit nung magka-love team kami, lagi kong sinasabi sa lahat na gusto kong maging wider yung matatanggap kong iba ibang proyekto. So one positive thing siguro na nakuha ko nung nawala, nung hindi na ako nasa isang love team is yung chance na magkaroon ng iba ibang role and mas matuto ako. Kasi feeling ko dun ako talaga natututo and luckily, may mga taong naniwala and sumugal and nagbigay sa akin ng iba ibang role. So very blessed ako when it comes to that,” she explained.
The Horrorscope star revealed that she is focused on her top two priorities this year. “Masasabi ko hanggang ngayon, I’m still enjoying yung hindi na-ta-typecast, getting different roles kasi dun talaga ako kumukuha ng madaming madaming learnings. And yung love team I think parang hindi na ako nandoon kumbaga. Maybe someday magkakatrabaho ulit, we never know. Like I said, mas gusto ko rin kasi yug tahimik when it comes to my personal relationships. Sa ngayon, work and my personal (life) are like two separate things,” she added.
