- Jameson Blake doesn’t like being compared to anybody.
- He also doesn’t want to compete with other Hashtags members.
- Jameson doesn’t count himself as a better actor than Ronnie.
While promoting the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival entry, Haunted Forest, Jameson Blake started filming for So Connected under the direction of Jason Paul Laxamana. With his busy schedule due to countless projects, netizens can’t help but compare him to his fellow Hashtags member, Ronnie Alonte.
In an exclusive interview with PUSH.com, Jameson shared his thoughts on people’ comparison between the two. He shared that Ronnie turned to be the first Hashtags member to receive projects.
“Actually, siya yung nauuna sa lahat ng Hashtags na may mga projects talaga – may movie, may teleserye. Tapos before nakasama ko siya sa A Love To Last.”
He confessed that he doesn’t count himself as a better actor than Ronnie.
“Well, hindi naman sa mas magaling ako kay Ronnie, siguro may mga strength and stuff like that lang. Siguro, may mga strength ako especially pag galit.”
Jameson further continued that he is flattered when people tell him that he turned out to be the better actor.
“I don’t judge the person, pero yung mga nakikita ko sa YouTube, mga comments, ang dami nilang nagsasabi na ganun nga. It’s flattering of course if someone said na mas magaling ka.”
He also let the people to judge their performances on their projects.
“It also helps me, ganun. And if it’s comparing to Ronnie, well that’s another story. It’s up to them naman kung ano yung sinasabi nila. Ako, I won’t judge myself na I’m better or anything, but if that what they see then, eh, di ganun talaga. Sila naman yung nagde-decide, eh. Nothing against him.”
Jameson shared that he doesn’t give any attention to the favoritism in the showbiz industry.
“Never akong naka-experience ng ganun. Siguro, may mga favoritism sa showbiz, like yung mga directors, mas gusto nila yung ganito, napansin ko yon.’
He also revealed how everything should be ideally equal between the Hashtags members.
“Pero like sa Hashtags, gusto nila equal talaga, eh. Pero minsan mahirap din kasi yung iba, may mga projects na and yung iba hindi naman masyadong busy so it’s hard to tell, it’s really hard.”
Although, amid his huge amount of projects, Jameson doesn’t feel like he became a favorite for directors.
“So far, feeling ko hindi naman ako favorite or something ng mga director. I’m just getting good breaks lang siguro.”
He also admitted that he doesn’t like being compared to any of his Hashtags members.
“If someone would say na parang ako yung one of the top sa Hashtags, well siguro let’s say in terms of getting projects. It’s a good sign naman, at least I can say na I’m blessed to have these stuff. It’s flattering naman and nice to hear naman but I don’t like to compare kasi with each other, eh.”
Jameson ended with saying that he doesn’t want to have a competition with everyone.
“Ayokong ganun, I don’t want to be competitive with everyone, pero if that’s how it is, yung mga ginagawa mo, yung mga projects will put you on the top, eh, di maganda naman.”
