Few months after transferring to GMA Network, Jason Francisco says he now feels at home with his new home network.
“Noong hindi pa ako artista, may mga shows din na Kapuso na sinusubaybayan ko talaga.
"E, ganun naman tayo, e.
“Maganda rito sa Kapuso. May puso talaga sila. Hahaha!
"Totoo naman, tsaka masaya rito."
Despite his initial nervousness, the former Pinoy Big Brother: Double Up housemate speaks of how he felt welcomed by Jose Manalo and Ai-Ai delas Alas when the former Kapamilya star appeared in GMA-7’s weekly variety show, Sunday PinaSaya.
Jason also notes that he feels comfortable with The One That Got Away lead actor Dennis Trillo.
“Sila Dennis Trillo, medyo nakaka-bonding ko na siya.
“Mabilis ako naka-adjust. Akala ko mahihirapan ako mag-adjust, pero hindi.”
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) had a solo interview with Jason at the press launch of GMA-7's upcoming primetime series, The One That Got Away (TOTGA).
It was held at NIX.05 restobar in Quezon City last January 4.
According to Jason, he’s aware that some netizens have been speculating about his decision to transfer to GMA Network after eight years of being a homegrown ABS-CBN talent.
But the 30-year-old actor makes it clear that he has no bad blood with his former TV network.
He says, “Nahiya ako magsabi sa ABS-CBN.
"Pero sabi ko naman, gusto ko naman po ma-try sa GMA.
“Kaya ayun, naghanda rin ako bago ako lumipat.
“Akala kasi ng iba, nawala na lang ako. Di ba, bigla ako nawala?
"Pero may plans na kasi ako, siyempre di ko naman idedetalye.”
Jason was last seen in the now-defunct Kapamilya primetime series Super D in 2016, before he transferred to GMA-7 during the latter part of 2017.
He elaborates, “Kasi kapag may trabaho ka, dire-diretso, mahirap kang mag-change ng network agad.
"So, parang nagpahinga muna ako ng kaunti.
“Kaya yung iba, akala nila bigla na lang ako nawala, o nawalan ako ng trabaho—hindi.
“Hindi naman ako napabayaan ng ABS.”
The former PBB housemate reiteratew that he just opted for a better opportunity for the sake of career growth and securing his family’s future.
“Isipin na kung anong isipin ng ibang tao," says Jason.
"Pero sa personal, hindi kasi nila alam… Hindi ba puwedeng nag-decision ka na mag-iba?
"Kasi paano ka mag-e-excel? Kailangan mo hanapin or mag-try na mag-iba naman.”
