Jeremiah ON LOVE AND SHOWBIZ BEGINNINGS
In a video titled "Serious Convo with Jeremiah Lisbo" released by ABS-CBN Star Cinema, Jeremiah looked back at his showbiz beginnings.
Although he has had many memorable projects in the past two years, it is the memory of his first commercial that makes him smile. He said, "Kasi sobrang... ang daming nag-open na opportunities dahil dun, e."
As for his greatest achievement so far, he said, "Meron akong nagawang pelikula sa Star Cinema at nasa Netflix na siya ngayon. Panoorin niyo guys, Four Sisters Before the Wedding."
Since his most notable roles have featured him in love triangles, Jeremiah was also asked to share his thoughts on matters of the heart.
At his age and based on his life experiences, he defined love as, "Love is sharing, sacrifice. Mas more on, ano eh, ang pagmamahal bigay. Hindi mo iisipin ang sarili mo. Yun para sa akin ang depinisyon ng pag-ibig."
He also revealed that he had his heart broken in the past.
"Ang lesson na natutunan ko, huwag mo siya gawing mundo, magtira ka sa sarili mo. And napaka-importante ng, ano, self love."
With regard to his ideal girl, he said, "Yung mature, na susuportahan ako sa kung anong gusto kong hangarin sa buhay. Yung hindi selfish na parang pabor lang sa kanya parati."
He would take her on an "adventurous and risky" date.
"Gusto ko nasa taas ako ng bundok tapos presko lang tapos nagkakape kami doon," he narrated.
While waiting for the right girl to come along, Jeremiah is bent on taking advantage of the present moment to improve on himself.
He said, "Take advantage tayo dapat sa oras natin ngayon eh. And, mas more on self-development. Ayan, nag-aaral ako mag gitara, kumanta, ayan. Tapos may hosting pang... hosting na experience. So yun."
