As one of the 40 new artists who officially joined Star Magic during the Black Pen Day event last month, JC Alcantara still remembered how he and his fellow batchmates were feeling before going on stage to sign their new contracts.

“Sa backstage kinakabahan na kami. Andun kami sa likod, pag tinatawag na yung mga pangalan namin, mukha kaming tanga na, ‘Ako na ba?’ Andun ako sa backstage tapos ako na yung susunod. Parang bumalik lahat ng simula na ating pangarap ko lang ito, na gusto ko makapag-sign ng contract sa ABS-CBN and Star Magic and Rise Artists. Then pag akyat ng stage hindi ko mapigilan umiyak kasi first time ko mag-sign ng contract tapos ganun pa kaganda yung event so grabe. Kaya sobrang grateful ko. Nagpapasalamat ako sa lahat,” he said during the Star Magic Black Pen Day media con.

Last year, JC starred in the Black Sheep digital BL series and movie Hello Stranger along with Tony Labrusca. The talented actor said he is not afraid of being typecast in BL roles because of that career move.

“Actually hindi naman ako natatakot ma-typecast kung bibigyan ako ng ganung project pero ibang atake naman. Hindi same as Mico (his character in Hello Stranger). Pero dahil sa Rise Artists and Star Magic I know na papahingahin nila ako from BL siguro para mag-grow naman ako kung ano pang magagawa ko, kung ano pa yung kaya ko,” he shared.

Aside from looking forward to doing more acting projects, JC is also launching his singing career this month.

“Meron akong upcoming single this July 9 so sana support niyo ako. Mga upcoming projects ko sa Rise Artists and alam ko hindi ako pababayaan ng management ko na Star Magic. Nag-pe-play naman ako ng guitar and ukelele and actually hindi ko alam na may boses pala ako. Dun ko na-realize nung nandun ako sa recording and nakita ni music producer Rox (Santos) na kaya ko pala, marunong pala ako. Kaya hindi ko ma-explain. First single ko kasi ito kaya salamat at meron pala akong magandang boses (laughs). Kumakanta naman ako pero hindi naman talaga yung magaling, pakilig, yung ganun (laughs). Pero dati naman aminado ako nung first year high school ako nanalo ako ng singing contest. Hindi ko nga in-expect nung nanalo ako nun tapos ngayon may single na ako kaya nagpapasalamat ako,” he said.

JC said he couldn’t be more thankful to so many people in ABS-CBN for giving him the chance to show his craft.

”Siyempre ang management ko sa Rise Artists and Black Sheep Family. Dahil kung hindi dahil sa kanila hindi ako magiging successful. And of course sa Star Magic and lalong lalo na sa mga fans ko around the world. Sana huwag kayong magsawang sumupport sa akin. Abangan niyo yung mga upcoming projects ko,” he added.
