Numerous celebrities have chosen to leap towards directing at the end of their acting careers. Joining the list of the celebrities who are ready to prove their prowess behind the camera is one of ABS-CBN’s finest actors, Joross Gamboa.
In a previous interview with PUSH, the actor shared his long-time wish to be a director. Having acquired directing and scriptwriting skills as a Mass Communications student, he is geared up for this field of work.
“Matagal na, dati pa lang nag Mass Communication din ako yun ang plano ko talaga then, sa school noon ako yung nag-didirek, tapos nag-script writing din ako kay sir Ricky Lee, kay Inang (Olivia Lamasan).”
Even the country’s most notable film directors such as Rory Quintos and Olivia Lamasan have been witnesses to his prowess, that’s why they pushed him to direct his own film. However, he found it hard to juggle his responsibilities as a husband to Kathy Kimberly Saga and a father to his children, Jace Kyler and John Kody.
“Dati pa talaga nila ako, pinu-push mag-direk nina Inang, si Direk Rory (Quintos), tapos nag-creatives din ako sa Star (Cinema), pero naputol lang yun nung nag-States kami ng asawa ko, naging daddy na ako, medyo nakalimutan ko ang pagsusulat.”
The actor-director is now working on his new movie, “Allergy in Love.” He thinks this would be a great opportunity for him to hone his skills aside from acting.
“Sa akin kasi, kahit ano, one step at a time. Ang future siyempre iniisip natin. Kaya siguro ako nagsisimula mag-bukas ng ibang doors para may option na aside sa pag-aartista.”
