Jameson Blake isn’t just another pretty face. He may not have topped the “737” edition of the reality show “Pinoy Big Brother” (PBB), but he’s now making a name for himself both as a serious actor and as a member of “It’s Showtime’s” boy group Hashtags.
The 20-year-old Fil-Am looker grew up in Hong Kong and moved to the Philippines, his mother’s homeland, when he was 10 years old.
Barely a year after his stint with PBB, he won best supporting actor for his role in the 2016 Cinema One fest drama, “2 Cool 2 Be 4gotten”—when he was only 19.
He will next be seen in the 2017 Cinema One fest entry, “Nay,” and the horror flick, “Haunted Forest.”
Our quick Q&A with Jameson:
How were you discovered for Hashtags? I wasn’t doing anything after my eviction from PBB, so I decided to give it a shot and auditioned for it.
After I got picked, I started to love what we were doing, especially with colleagues I could now call brothers.
Who’s the actor you idolize? John Lloyd Cruz. His acting ability inspires me to be a better actor.
How do you react to indecent proposals? I don’t take them seriously. The ones that seemed like indecent proposals, I thought they were just jokes.
What is your biggest asset? My dimples.
What sets you apart from other actors your age? I never gave that a thought. I want to get better at every role that I take and make sure I don’t embarrass myself beside more seasoned costars. I enjoy working with different actors, so I’d rather not think of them as rivals and competitors.
