Q: Your fans probably know everything about you already, but how would you introduce yourself to people who are only starting to get to know you? Who is Jeremiah Lisbo?
Jeremiah: I’m a gym rat. Lagi akong nag wo-workout. Ginagawa ko yan every morning and sinasabayan ko din siya, hindi lang physical ang wino-workout ko, pati rin yun utak ko. Nag babasa ako ng mga books. Mahilig ako sa books and workout. Nangyon, inuulit kong basahin yung Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids about Money-- that the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! by Robert Kiyosaki
[ I’m a gym rat. I regularly work out. I do it every morning and I also incorporate mental exercise into it, not just physical. I read books. I love books and working out. Currently, I'm re-reading 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money-- that the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!' by Robert Kiyosaki.]
Q: As we all know, creating your name in the industry is not easy. What motivates you to pursue this career?
Jeremiah: My motivation? To be honest, money. (laughs). But kidding aside, connections din. Kasi meron akong plano to open my business.
[ My motivation? To be honest, it's money (laughs). But kidding aside, it's also about connections. Because I have a plan to open my own business.]
Q: What is your favorite movie role you have played so far?
Jeremiah: So far, favorite ko yung sa ‘He’s into Her,’ kasi challanging yung role niya. Iba-iba yung phase niya eh. Yung sa season one iba yung pinagdaanan niya. Tapos season two iba din.
[So far, my favorite is the one from 'He’s into Her' because the role she played was challenging. His character went through different phases. In season one, he went through a different journey, and in season two, it was also different.]
Q: What role do you feel you need to challenge yourself more as an actor?
Jeremiah: Siguro comedy. Mahirap magpatawa and also drama. Na-try ko na yung drama sa MMK, pero mas gusto ko din siyang ulitin kasi sobrang challenging.
[Maybe comedy. It's difficult to make people laugh, and also drama. I've tried drama in MMK, but I want to do it again because it was very challenging.]
Q: Out of all the co-stars you've worked with, who would you say is your favorite?
Jeremiah: Madami. Halos lahat ng cast sa ‘He’s Into Her,’ Yung mga naging pair ko talaga sa work. Tulad ni Kaori and Belle.
[There are many. Almost all the cast in 'He's Into Her,' and also the ones I was paired with at work, like Kaori and Belle.]
Q: What's the best advice you have ever received about acting?
Jeremiah: Galing kay Miss Lotlot De Leon, sabi niya ‘Laruin mo lang, huwag ka masyadong magpa-pressure, basta enjoy mo lang and be in the moment.’ Kasi masyado kong sineseryoso tapos prineressure yung sarili ko, tapos nung nakita ko siyang mag work, nialaro lang niya, very chill, ineenjoy niya lang.
[It came from Miss Lotlot De Leon, she said 'Just play, don't put too much pressure on yourself, just enjoy and be in the moment.' Because I take things too seriously and pressure myself, then when I saw her work, she just played it, very chill, and she just enjoyed it.]
Q: What do you believe sets you apart from other actors?
Jeremiah: Siguro yung ‘Looks ko.’ Kasi puwedeng mahirap, puwedeng mayaman, puwede kang versatile na character.
[ Maybe 'My Looks' because you can play a character who can be struggling, rich, or versatile in terms of looks.]
Q: What do you believe is the most important quality an actor should have?
Jeremiah: Important quality for me is listening and collaborative skills. Because to be able to put on a great scene, you should listen and know how to collaborate with your workmates.
Q: What do you find most rewarding about acting?
Jeremiah: Yung feedback ng mga tao. Lalo na pag nag t-trending, pinag-uusapan, tapos may mga praise sila na sasabihing, ‘Etong eksenang to nabigay mo talaga yung tamang emotion, naramdaman ko pa!’
[ It's about the feedback from people, especially when it's trending and being talked about, and then receiving praise where they would say, 'You really gave the right emotion in this scene, I really felt it!' ]
Q: What kind of message would you like to send to your fans, especially those who have supported you throughout your career?
Jeremiah: To my Elites! Nag papasalamat ako kasi simula palang nung nag umpisa ako, wala pa akong na pprove na any projects, sinusuportahan na nila ako. Nag momodelling palang ako, commercial, since 2019 nanjan kayo for me. Thank you maraming salamat.
[ To my Elites! I am grateful because since I started, even when I haven't been approved for any projects yet, you have been supporting me. When I started modeling for commercials in 2019, you were already there for me. Thank you so much.]
