Jason Abalos had been a Kapamilya for 12 years. Recently, he found a new home in GMA, ABS-CBN’s chief rival, after he revealed that he just signed a contract to be a Kapuso. He is known for his appearances on TV dramas such as “Langit Lupa,” “Bridges of Love,” “Two Wives,” and “Moon of Desire.”
GMA executives were in attendance during his contract signing. Notable personalities include the Kapuso network’s SVP for Entertainment, Lilybirth Rasonable, and SVP Assistant Vice President of Alternative Productions, Gigi Santiago-Lara.
“Bagong mundo sa akin ito, e, pero kung ano man yung naging trabaho ko sa pinanggalingan ko, pwede ko pong madala dito, saka mas magpursigi pa. Siyempre po, bago lahat, e—bagong mukha, bagong environment, bagong adventure,” Jason told GMA.
The actor stated that working his new colleagues excites him. He mentioned that he became friends with Mark Herras and Rocco Nacino through playing basketball.
“May mga kaibigan po ako dito sa GMA, sina Kuya Mark, Kuya Rocco. So ako po, ‘pag trabaho, trabaho lang talaga.Isa po na nakaka-excite sa akin ay makatrabaho sila kasi puro kami basketball lang, e, ngayon lang po kami magkakatrabaho sa isang proyekto kung saka-sakali,” Jason shared.
Of course, the question why he jumped ship to GMA after working for ABS-CBN for over a decade popped.
“Isa rin sa dahilan kung bakit lumipat ako ng GMA, baka mabigyan ako ng roles na hindi ko nagawa sa [ABS-CBN]. Mas gusto ko lang palawakin yung naaabot ng craft ko,” Jason answered.
Jason clarified by saying that there was no bad blood between him and ABS-CBN and that the Kapamilya network took good care of him. Transferring to GMA was not an easy decision for him, but he’d like to try other things that he has yet to dabble in such as comedy.
“Wala naman akong pwedeng sabihin sa inyo kundi magagandang bagay at alaala sa [ABS-CBN]. Isa pong malaking desisyon para sa akin ito, gusto ko rin pong subukan ang kapalaran ko sa GMA,” Jason said.
Furthermore, he mentioned that he would love to take superhero roles. It has been always his dream to portray a heroic role like Iron Man.
