Jake Ejercito, during the Welcome Kapamilya media conference on April 30, narrated how his journey with ABS-CBN commenced.
He mentioned in ABS-CBN's report that he met the bosses before the lockdown started, which was why everything was put to a standstill.
Thankfully, after waiting, he is now rewarded with a role in the soap Marry You Marry Me.
When asked why he did not join showbiz immediately, he said it was because he prioritized his daughter, Ellie.
"My first ever appearance on TV I was still in college and I was based abroad so hindi ko magawa lahat ng offers and I was also very reluctant talaga nung time na yun. Hindi ko sure kung anong gusto kong gawin sa buhay and being a young dad din I prioritized my daughter," said Jake.
