Award-winning actress Jaclyn Jose admits that her anxiety is only temporarily cured when she’s working.
In a media conference, she said her anxiety and depression stems from the threat of the coronavirus.
“I’m having anxiety and depression because we can’t get out,” she said.
She sees every project as a blessing, especially during this trying time.
“Hindi naman ako magiging ipokrita. Everybody needs to work, so kapag may work, blessing ‘yon.
“Nakakatakot, very, very hard, and so scary. Last year, nu’ng ginagawa namin itong The Housemaid, medyo hindi pa ganoon nakakatakot, e.”
Today is even scarier than last year because of the new variants coming into the country.
“Ngayon, mas nakakatakot because of some other variants na dumarating, nagmu-mutate. Mas nararamdaman ko yung takot ngayon,”
The only thing that can make her forget about the pandemic is when she’s being an actress.
“I’m doing a soap. I love my work. I am so bored just to be at home and do nothing. This is what I do best. This is what I love to do best and kapag may ganitong kaganda na characters na ibibigay.
“Kahit na yung soap na ginagawa ko, makakalimutan mo for a while [ang takot]. And you need to be with your extended family, my showbiz people family, because it is hard,” paliwanag pa ng premyadong aktres.” she said.
She appears in the upcoming movie “The Housemaid” which includes Kylie Versoza, Albert Martinez, Louise Delos Reyes, Elia Ilano, and Jobelyn Manuel.
The film will start streaming on Vivamax, KTX, iWant TFC, and TFC IPTV starting September 10.
