JOAQUIN ‘JD’ DOMAGOSO is the eldest son Mayor Isko Moreno. 

He’s now seen singing and dancing in “All Out Sundays”, but starting March 15, you’d seen him try acting as the love interest of Cassy Legaspi in “First Yaya”, which will replace “Anak ni Waray vs. Anak ni Biday” on GMA Telebabad. 

What advice has his father given him upon joining showbiz?

“Papa told me to always just listen,” he listen. “When acting, listen sa kaeksena mo to get a good reaction in a scene. 

"I can use it talaga sa lahat ng bagay kasi you will learn a lot when you listen well. Listen to what your directors and co-actors are sharing kasi may matututuhan ka diyan. 

"He also told me na makisama sa lahat sa lock in taping. No special treatment for me. I eat what they offer on the set. Isa pang bilin niya, not to neglect my studies. 

"I’m second year now in entrepreneurship and I’m determined to finish it.”

What’s his first impression of Cassy? 

“First impression kay Cassy is she can easily talk to people. She brightens up the room. We first met sa ‘Studio 7’. 

"I was nervous kasi bago lang ako, but when we talked chill lang ako as she’s very friendly, so welcoming.”

He admits he was cautious at first. 

“Noong una, siempre, may konting hiya. Kasi mas una kong naging friend ang brother niya, si Mavy. But during the lock in taping, we became friends so we’re okay now, mas close na kami. 

"Same waiting room at standby area rin kami, kaya we eat together. Cassy can be very transparent. I know when she is in a good mood kasi she’s giggling, always smiling.”

So he’s at home with showbiz now? 

“I really enjoy what I’m doing kasi gusto ko talaga mag-showbiz. Maski sa ‘All Out Sundays’, enjoy ako. Masaya ang kwentuhan with all the other artists and I’m learning from their experiences that they share with me.”

What’s his role in the “First Yaya”? 

“I play Jonas and Cassy is Nina. I come from a poor family at siya, mayaman, anak ni Sir Gabby Concepcion na magiging president ng ating bansa. We’re off to a rocky start, we’re fighting and become enemies, but we eventually get to understand each other.”

Can he relate with his character? 

“Jonas and I are very different from each other. Kasi mahirap siya at hindi ko naman naranasan ang hirap na pinagdaanan niya. But we’re the same in that we’re both misunderstood by some people.”

And how is it working with the ‘First Yaya’ herself, Sanya Lopez? 

“Know what, I’ve been a fan of hers since two years ago pa. Now that we’re working together, i’m so happy. She’s fun to work with, great, ang galing umacting, bagay sa role niya as ‘First Yaya’.”

How is it doing lock in taping?

 “It’s fun kasi everyone in the cast is there and you can talk to all of them, not just your co-stars, but also the staff, the crew. You sleep and when you wake up, you see each other again.”

In real life, does he have a yaya? “Yes, my yaya, si Cathy, was with me since i was small. Umalis siya when she got married. But we still keep in touch with her.”

What is his dad’s advice on having a lovelife? 

“Wala siyang masyadong advice. Basta ang sabi niya, always be a gentleman. Just be nice. Be the real you. Don’t pretend to be someone else.”

Is it difficult to be the son of an actor-mayor? 

“One thing I realized is mahirap malampasan ang shadow ng papa ko, kasi he has very big shadow. But i realized that’s him and this is me. I just accepted na okay lang sa’kin to be me and I’ll do just my best in everything I do.”

How is the public reaction to his love team with Cassy?

“So far, okay naman. I love it, being paired with her in a love team. The fans have made Tiktok videos pairing us, using our past pictures. 

"Ang ganda nga ng mga ginawa nila and it’s nice to know we can make people happy. Meantime, don’t forget to watch us ni Cassy in ‘First Yaya’ when it starts airing on GMA-7 on March 15.”
