“If you want tomorrow to change, you’ve got to do something about it today.”
Thus mentioned teen actor Joaquin Domagoso when Inquirer Entertainment requested him what essential life lesson did his dad, former actor and incumbent Manila Mayor Isko Moreno (referred to as Yorme), share with him and his 4 siblings whereas rising up.
“If you keep doing the same thing today, then there won’t be anymore chance for you to achieve that change,” expounded Joaquin as he spoke with reporters throughout a latest media gathering for his movie venture, “Caught in the Act.”
Other folks would possibly discover it arduous to consider, however Joaquin mentioned it’s probably not “too difficult” to be a son of an overachiever father like Isko. “The only times I felt it’s ‘hard’ to be his son was when we’re out and I really wanted to go home already but I can’t because there are still people wanting to have their pictures taken with Papa,” Joaquin mentioned, laughing. “Aside from that, everything about him and what he does is OK by me.”
Similar profession path
Isko’s was a rags-to-riches story: It began with him working as a scavenger and pedicab driver at 10 years outdated. He turned an actor at 19, after which a Manila City councilor at 24. He married Diana Lyn Ditan at age 26, after which gained as vice mayor at 33. Now 46, he has been serving as mayor since 2019.As to whether or not Joaquin plans to take a profession path comparable to his dad’s—changing into an actor first after which in a while, a public servant—Joaquin admitted that he doesn’t assume a lot about that half of his future.
“Politics, that’s something you enter maybe when you’re 30 or later in life. Although my dad entered it very early, in his 20s, I plan to just focus on show biz. I’m not closing any doors, though,” the 19-year-old declared.
In phrases of attempting to step out of his father’s shadow, Joaquin mentioned he tries not to concentrate on that, too. “If I do that then I will never be able to enjoy my time in show biz. His is a shadow that’s so hard to get out of. It’s gotten so big because he helped a lot of people. Come to think of it, why would I be afraid to be under that shadow?”
He additional mentioned: “People say we’re different because I’m coño, but I know I’m just being me. I’m coño, but friendly. People will just have to accept us for who we are. Daddy Wowie (Roxas, their talent manager) said that I got my being makulit from Papa. He is makulit but you still get to enjoy his company. I also don’t aim to make everybody happy because that’s impossible. I don’t try to live up to all the people’s high expectations, either. I just do me; and my dad is proud of that.”
Joaquin, however, mentioned he has desires and private targets. “I think everyone should have them, because they help you push yourself to do better,” he pointed out. “In the future, I really want to do an action movie similar to ‘The Bagman.’ I like Arjo Atayde’s role there. Even though he is fair-skinned and an Inglisero, in the show, he was able to convince his audience that he’s an ordinary barber; and also a bad guy. You won’t see that, off-cam, he is actually rich; that he’s actually a sweet and loving person.” He added: “I want a role that will challenge me when it comes to action. I want to play a character that’s totally different from my real self, just like the one I will be portraying in this movie.”
In the crime-mystery comedy movie “Caught in the Act,” Joaquin’s character turns into half of a gaggle of senior highschool college students who invent a brand new cellular app that’s supposed to assist cease crime. The app permits onlookers to report a criminal offense as they see it. While testing the app, they get to witness a criminal offense dedicated by a syndicate group. The app successfully sends a report about this to the authorities. However, the primary individual to obtain it’s the head of the police, who can be concerned with the syndicate. As the syndicate group tries to cowl its tracks, these harmless youngsters now have to determine whether or not to run away as they’re being hunted down, or face their tormentors head on.
“I’m not sure about how effective having an actual crime-solving app would be, because there’s a certain danger to letting civilians use it in the actual world sense. I’d be more careful with it if ever we’d eventually have a real, functioning one in the future,” Joaquin informed Inquirer Entertainment when requested for his ideas on the likelihood of having an precise crime-solving app in a while.
“Our characters are just regular teenagers, and with the technology they’ve developed, they can really get into trouble and maybe even die because of it. They don’t have the weapons and expertise to actually fight the villains. Apps like this still have to go through some form of government regulation,” he pointed out.
Asked which app he finds essentially the most helpful, Joaquin mentioned, “it has got to be the Waze app. I can’t imagine going on road trips back when Waze was still inexistent. How can you possibly be able to get to different gimmick places or hangouts, or even shooting locations, without it?”
If he would develop his personal app, Joaquin mentioned it might be one thing that might assist folks find clear public bathrooms. “I always have a hard time finding clean toilets when I want to do No. 2. This app will conveniently show everyone the location of all the clean restrooms in the area,” he mentioned laughing.
“Caught in the Act,” written and to be directed by Perry Escaño (“Ang Guro Kong ‘Di Marunong Magbasa,” “Ang Sikreto ng Piso”), will begin filming subsequent week. It additionally options Andi Abaya (PBB second big-placer), Josh Lichtenberg, Bamboo B. , and Jhassy Cruz Busran. It is a coproduction of MPJ Entertainment and Golden Brilliance. INQ
