It’s been six years since Jameson Blake transitioned from commercial model to actor, entering showbiz as a housemate via Pinoy Big Brother 737. The 24-year-old Fil-American actor also became part of the all-male dance group Hashtags on It’s Showtime that same year.
Since then, Jameson has been part of numerous TV and movie roles including his latest digital film My Sunset Girl this year with Charlie Dizon. “I’m happy naman with my career and sa life. Hindi ko din ini-expect. I went through a lot na rin. Time flies talaga so I’m really looking forward to doing more projects and to doing better and to showcase my talent basically. So keep going lang, yun yung goal ko,” he said.
After the ABS-CBN shutdown last year, Jameson reveals how he felt during that difficult time in the Kapamilya network. “Siyempre it was very alarming for us and I didn’t know how to act right away. Pero I’m happy that we still managed to get on our feet and to keep going kahit papaano. And I can see naman throughout the year na we’re still trying to make projects and do more shows and everything. We’ve been trying to make the most out of everything so that’s what I’m proud about siguro throughout the year,” he recalled.
In My Sunset Girl, Jameson shared his favorite scenes with leading lady Charlie Dizon who plays a girl afflicted with xeroderma pigmentosum, a condition that does not allow for her to be exposed to sunlight. Jameson plays her online friend turned suitor in the series.
“Actually yung mga scenes na gusto ko yung mga beach scenes. Masarap gawin yung mga eksena dun kasi feel mo talaga eh yung nature and everything so yun lang naman siguro. There’s a part na parang in-explain ko yung story ko kay Charlie. Yun din yung favorite ko, parang nag-flashback ako,” he said.
For future projects, Jameson said he wants to try doing more physical roles. “Actually that’s one question na iniiisip ko talaga. Yung one role na hindi ko pa na-try is yung action related. Yun yung gusto ko i-try maybe in the future sometime. Yun lang naman. action-related,” he added.
My Sunset Girl is now available for streaming on iWant TFC. Starring Charlie Dizon, Jameson Blake, Mylene Dizon, and Joem Bascon. Directed by Andoy Ranay.
