Jao Mapa explains why he chose erotic-thriller film in his showbiz comeback
MANILA, Philippines — Returning actor Jao Mapa explained why he chose an erotic-thriller film in his comeback bid to showbiz.
During the virtual press conference of his upcoming movie “Paraluman,” Jao said he received an offer from Viva and he liked the story of the film so he decided to accept it.
“Well actually gumawa na ako ng Matrikula before [with] Rosanna Roces. This is like a… it’s not new,“ Jao said.
“‘Jao we have this film for you baka magustuhan mo, ano lang sexy lang siya pero don’t think of it as a sexy film but think of it as a comeback film.’ So yeah, that’s what triggered me to get back to this and the rest is already history,” he added.
Jao also wanted to know if the public will embrace him again as an actor.
“Actually para sakin, yung pagbabalik. Kung matatanggap pa ba ko for me as an old actor, I mean, returning actor,” he said.
The 90s actor said he is happy that he got along with the cast and crew of the film.
“I’d like to say na open arms naman ako na tinanggap ng crew, production ni direk. It was really a surprise for me na yung mga fears ko ‘di naman pala gano’n. Niyakap naman ako nang industriya. Eto, niyayakap ko siya pabalik.”
He also credited his wife Cecille for supporting his showbiz comeback.
“My wife, first and foremost, is very supportive. If she wasn’t supportive, I wouldn’t be doing this film actually. Of course, I consulted her first before doing this. She’s full support and I love her for that really. I can’t find any other woman like she’s very special to me. I’d like to put that note,” he said.
Award-winning thriller and horror film director Yam is back, this time for a new romance movie, “Paraluman.”
Peter (Jao) lives in with his partner Giselle (Gwen Garci), who’s a barangay worker. They will meet Mia (Rhen Escano), the minor, younger sister of one of their friends. Not long after, Mia falls in love with Peter who is almost twice her age and is soon to be wed with Giselle. Before everything goes wrong, Peter must choose between Mia, who’s very much younger than him and who just came into his life very recently, or Giselle, who has been with him for the longest time and wants nothing but to be with him for the rest of her life.
