Jessy and JC have worked together in the Primetime Bida series You’re My Home. Jessy says she is happy that she is working with JC once again. The actress also admitted that they have kept in touch even after their first show ended.
“Oo naman, pagkatapos pa lang ng You’re My Home nag-usap na kami ni JC na sana magkaroon pa kami ng projects na magkasama (Of course, after You’re My Home, JC and I talked about how we wish to have more projects together). Kasi parang dun na-test sa You’re My Home yung pagiging comfortable namin sa isa’t isa (It was in You’re My Home where our comfortability with each other was tested). Sayang naman kung hindi makikita ng mga tao kung ano pa yung kaya naming gawin (It wouldn’t be a waste if the people will not see what other things we can do together). Kumbaga na-try na namin yung drama so iba naman (We have tried drama, so we want to try another theme). Romantic comedy kaya (Like romantic comedy). Marami na talaga kaming napag-usapan, isa lang yun (We have talked about a lot of things already), press conference held for their new show, Wansapanataym.
The actress also said that she and JC have grown closer.
"Siguro yung two years namin sa You’re My Home hindi rin biro yung ganun kahaba na working relationship (Maybe the two years we spent together in You’re My Home helped build our working relationsip),” the actress said.
When asked to describe her leading man, Jessy admitted that she thinks JC is made of more than just boyfriend material.
"Oo naman, si JC boyfriend material, even husband material na rin (JC is boyfriend material, he is even a husband material)….Parang siguro andun kasi yung responsibility(Maybe because he has the sense of responsibility)?"
“And at the same time alam niya kung paano hatiin kung ano yung dito at ano yung diyaan (At the same time, he knows how to manage his time). Kumbaga alam niya kung paano mag-multitask and that’s very important for a boyfriend or for a husband (He knows how to multi-task and I think that’s very important in a boyfriend and husband). Dapat naman talaga sa girls ang maging boyfriend a responsible person (Girls should consider having a responsilbe boyfriend),” she shared.
However, the actress was not quick to answer when asked to label her friendship with JC.
"Hindi namin alam (laughs) (We don’t know). Wala rin kasi talagang label (We don’t have any labels). I think it shows rin kung comfortable kami sa trabaho (I think it shows in how comfortable we are working together). Eto kasi (si JC) workaholic ito (JC is workaholic). Parang araw-araw na kami nagkikita so wala na kaming point para pa maghanap pa dun sa labas ng trabaho kasi ganun din eh (We see each other daily so there’s no point looking for something outside work),” she remarked.
Both Jessy and JC are currently single.
