It’s your first time to endorse a Filipino brand. How do you feel about it?
“Actually, it’s the first time that I am ever endorsing any product. This whole procedure…you know, including this pictorial…is very new to me but it’s very interesting, it’s an experience that I’m welcoming. It’s really nice, especially the first part which is this photo shoot.”
What was your reaction when your agent told you that you were being offered to endorse a Filipino brand?
“You know, any brand or product was interested in me being their ‘face’ gives me a nice feeling. I’ve been in this business for quite a while and it’s nice to kind of be recognized. And the fact that I’m endorsing a product from the Philippines is even more mind-boggling. It’s halfway around the world from Los Angeles where I live and from Atlanta Georgia, where we shoot the show. It’s, as I’ve said, nice to know that we have fans in that market.”
