James Reid and Nadine Lustre, or popularly known as JaDine, will not waste their second chance to fame so they decided to set aside their romantic interests first to focus on their respective careers, they shared in “Tapatan Ni Tunying” airing this Thursday (September 25).
“We experienced how an opportunity was gone because we neglected it, we did not take it seriously, and we did not focus on it. We don’t want that to happen again,” Nadine says.
James was given his first break in showbiz after being named as the Big Winner of “Pinoy Big Brother Teen Clash,” but he did not pursue acting back then because he didn’t know what he wanted to do or to be that time.
“It seems that I wasn’t that serious. I was young. I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I didn’t know what my passion was,” James shares.
As for Nadine, she started performing on television and playing bit roles on movies when she was a child, but she admits that she wasted the break that came along her way.
“I was given a teleserye before. I did not focus on it and it seemed that I was just playing. There were no follow up projects after that,” Nadine tells.
The two hit it big when they starred in blockbuster movies “Diary ng Panget” and “Talk Back and You’re Dead.” They recently signed an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN and will soon star in “Wansapanataym presents My App Boyfie.”
When asked if she thinks JaDine could reach the success achieved by Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla’s loveteam KathNiel, Nadine answers, “Maybe it will take time. We have to go through with lots of things first.”
