Tinuldukan na ng Viva contract star at former Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition housemate na si Bret Jackson ang kanyang relasyon sa aktres na si Andi Eigenmann.
Ayon sa newbie actor nang makapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sa press launch ng Wattpad Presents: Hot and Cold ng TV5, last May 14, may understanding na raw sila ng ex-girlfriend niyang si Andi na mananatili na lang silang magkaibigan.
Pagkumpirma ni Bret, “Yes, friendship na lang po at wala nang serious relationship.
“I guess it’s the best for both of us.
“I mean, para wala na ring intriga.
“When we were together kasi, everyone was like against it and many wanted to jump in on us.
“It wasn’t good for me or for Andi.
“So we decided that we’re better off as friends na lang po.”
Pero kahit nga wala na silang relasyon, hindi naman daw nawawala ang communication nilang dalawa ni Andi.
“Andi and I still communicate naman po.
“Just last week, nag-usap kami and she’s doing fine.
“I told her that anytime she needs a friend to talk to, she can always rely on me.
“Even if we’re not together anymore, our friendship is still there.
“Kami naman po ni Andi, we started naman talaga as good friends.
“That’s why that friendship will stay with us,” saad niya.
FULL FOCUS ON SHOWBIZ CAREER. Sa ngayon ay gusto nang mag-concentrate ni Bret sa kanyang showbiz career. Mas serious na raw siya sa pinasok niyang career sa pag-arte.
“After doing Your Place Or Mine under Direk Joel Lamangan, I learned to love acting more.
“Before, I admit, hindi po ako seryoso.
"I just thought that it’s an easy way to earn money and just have a good time.
“But I realized that being an actor, kailangan serious ka rin.
"It’s not just a job but a career that will define who you are in the future."
INDEBTED TO JAMES FOR SHOWBIZ COMEBACK. Ang best friend daw ni Bret na si James Reid ang nagpaalala na kailangan niyang maging seryoso sa kanyang career, kaya malaki raw ang pasasalamat niya rito.
“It was James who actually encouraged me to give showbiz another try.
“After doing PBB and coming out in different shows, I felt that I was going nowhere.
"So, I decided to go back home to Dumaguete with my family.
“When James was given a break by Viva Films via Diary ng Panget, he called me up and asked me if I still wanted to give acting another shot.
“He was about to start with his second movie for Viva, which was Talk Back and You’re Dead.
“He wanted me to be part of the movie as one of his gang memberm. Siya na raw ang kakausap with Viva para ma-meet nila ako.
“So I packed my bags and gave showbiz another shot.
“Before I knew it, I was given this second chance at showbiz.
“And James reminded me to love my job and be serious at it.
"Huwag ko raw gawing laro ang career ko because if I fail, there may never be another chance.
“So now, thanks to my friend James, I’m focused on making good at my career.
“I’m attending acting workshops to improve my acting and my Tagalog.
“Before naman po, I told the people at Viva that I’m more fluent in speaking Cebuano than Tagalog.
“I partly grew up in Dumaguete where people speak only English and Bisaya. Konti lang ang nagta-Tagalog.
“But I promise to really polish up on my Tagalog.
"I will be starting with a new movie and kailangan nagta-Tagalog na ako nang diretso.
“Ngayon, mas okey na than before.
"Minsan lang kapag puyat ako, nakakalimutan ko ang ilang words na Tagalog!" tawa pa niya.
THANKFUL TO TV5. Malaking pasasalamat din ni Bret sa TV5 dahil sa mga projects na binibigay nila sa kanya.
He is on his third Wattpad Presents episode and this time ay leading lady niya ang Kapamilya actress na si Ella Cruz.
Saad ni Bret, “TV5 has been so good to me.
“I love the people of Wattpad Presents. Since this is my third episode na with them, we’re like one big family na.
“Kaya enjoy ako working with them parati.
"Sabi ko nga, lagi nila akong bigyan ng episode para lagi kaming magkakasama."
First time daw makatrabaho ni Bret si Ella, pero nagkikita na raw sila noon pa sa ABS-CBN.
“We know one another naman pero never pa kami nagkakatrabaho.
“This is the first time we really worked and I can say that Ella really made me happy on the set.
“I’ve never been this happy before. Nakakatawa kasi si Ella.
“From the moment na nawala na yung wall between us, she just keeps on making me laugh.
“E, ang role ko pa naman, I have to be this suplado guy who doesn’t even smile.
“But it’s hard to act that way around Ella because she’s a lot of fun to be with.
“I like her charm and she’s very, very cute,” natatawa niyang pag-amin.
CRUSH ON ELLA. Hindi nga nahihiyang sabihin ni Bret na nagkaroon siya ng crush kay Ella habang ginagawa nila ang kanilang Wattpad episode.
“I can feel na nagiging crush ko na siya.
“She’s not just a funny person but she’s also very pretty.
“Like what I said, I have never been this happy since I’ve worked with Ella.
“I hope that there will be another episode for us because we absolutely have chemistry,” diin pa ni Bret.
Dahil mukhang patok ang team-up nila ni Ella, puwede na raw gawan sila ng loveteam at tawagin itong “BrElla”.
“That’s cute! I just hope we make a big impact.
“I laughed nga when somebody said na tapos na raw ang BrAndi [Bret and Andi] and BrElla na raw dapat.
“Sana nga po mag-click ang BrElla para may part two!”
