Jessy Mendiola is gearing up for a much-anticipated return to the entertainment industry in 2024.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News during the anniversary celebration of Cathy Valencia Advanced Skin Clinic, where Mendiola is one of the endorsers, she shared her plans and feelings about the upcoming comeback.
Expressing a mixture of excitement and nervousness, Mendiola humorously addressed concerns about being forgotten by the dynamic world of showbiz during her hiatus.
She quipped, “Pinapalaki ko lang ‘yung anak ko. Kinakabahan na nga ako, kasi baka nakalimutan na ‘ko ng showbiz. Excited na ‘ko pero nakakaba rin if ever magbabalik ako next year”.
Despite receiving an offer to participate in one of the films at this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), Mendiola opted to decline the opportunity. She cited her desire to gradually ease back into work after dedicating time to her daughter.
“Last year pa even before ako magbuntis, ang daming nag-o-offer na mag-teleserye. Actually ngayon, may movie na nag-offer sa akin for Metro Manila Film Festival, pero hindi ko na sasabihin. Huwag na! Hindi pa ako ready talaga ngayong taon kasi gusto ko mag-one year muna ‘yung anak ko. So next year feeling ko ready na ko”, she explained.
As Mendiola, who has been relishing motherhood with her daughter Rose alongside husband Luis Manzano, prepares for her much-awaited comeback, she is already contemplating potential projects. Expressing her eagerness to collaborate with family, she desires to work with her mother-in-law Vilma Santos and looks forward to joining forces with esteemed actors like Jericho Rosales and potentially Dingdong Dantes from a rival network.
Fans eagerly await Mendiola’s return to the limelight as she embarks on this new chapter in her career.
