From being a talent of APT Entertainment, Jerald Napoles is now a Viva Artists Agency’s talent. During his contract signing, the actor revealed that he once declined Coco Martin’s offer to join FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano because of Sunday PinaSaya.
“Kaibigan ko si Coco, ang storya niyan, bago magsimula ‘yung Probinsyano tumawag sakin personally. Nasa bakasyon ako non, sabi niya, ‘Paps meron kasi akong bagong show na serye gusto ko nandon kayong dalawa ni Pepe [Herrera].’”
But he also explained that during that time, he was working for GMA’s Sunday PinaSaya that’s why he was not able to accept Coco’s offer to be part of the longest-running TV series.
Coco and Jerald worked together on a film with Toni Gonzaga titled You’re My Boss in 2015.
Now that he doesn’t have a network contract, Jerald expressed his interest in possible projects with ABS-CBN stars and to finally have the opportunity to work with Coco.
He said: “Kung saan po may trabaho Wala naman po akong network contract. Sa ngayon po kung ano yung ibibigay tatanggapin ko. Pero sa ABS po kasi, kahit hindi po ako nakakapagtrabaho don, ang mga kadikit ko talaga doon ay sina Coco po talaga, mga nakainuman.
“Siguro nakita ni Coco kung paano kami nagtrabaho ni Pepe doon sa isang eksena sa pelikula kaya siguro nung magkakaroon ng Probinsyano, naisip niya kami. Well, just in case lang po, kung mabibigyan ng pagkakataon.”
