The former Kapamilya is now being handled by Becky Aguila Artists Management (BAAM).

Becky Aguila is the manager of GMA Network actress Jennylyn Mercado, former Star Magic talent Empress Schuck, and current Star Magic and Kapamilya actress Andrea Brillantes.

Via an Instagram post, BAAM welcomed Jon as their new talent.

“Welcome to the #famBAAM @lucas_aljhon !! Also a happy father’s day to you! We take pride knowing that a very talented young dad like you is finally part of our roster of artists. We are excited with this new journey with you! Thanks for the trust!” BAAM wrote.

The male star also posted on his Instagram stories that he had a studio shoot on June 18 without mentioning any detail. However,it was later discovered that Jon will be part of the cast of the Philippine adaptation of Korean drama Descendants of the Sun on GMA Network.

In 2015, he joined the noontime program It’s Showtime as one of the original members of the dance group Hashtags along with McCoy de Leon, Ronnie Alonte, and Jameson Blake . However, he was reportedly “suspended” from the group in 2017 and has been out-of-sight on the show since then.

Though he had several guest appearances on It’s Showtime after his suspension, Jon wasn’t able to return anymore as a regular Hashtag member.

In July 2018, Lucas came out of “hiding” and confirmed for the first time that he had welcomed a son in November, and is now married to It’s Showtime dancer Shy Feras.



After being introduced as an official part of Star Magic Circle 2013 alongside batchmates Liza Soberano and Julia Barretto, Lucas appeared in several ABS-CBN series, including Kahit Konting Pagtingin, Sana Bukas Pa ang Kahapon, We Will Survive, Got to Believe, Be Careful with My Heart, and Luv U.
