In a recent interview, actor and Hashtags member Jameson Blake said that people should not put malice on his friendship with fellow Kapamilya Elisse Joson. The 21-year-old star said that nothing romantic going on between him and Elisse at present.
“The rumor started after I had a guest appearance in Tonight with Boy Abunda. Clearly, people took it in a different light when I said that Elisse is the last girl that made me tickled pink. They also put a different meaning when I was able to compose a short poem for her on the spot during my guesting,” he avers.
The young actor swears that he and Elisse are only friends.
“We got close when we became co-stars in the soap opera. That’s where our friendship blossomed. But there’s nothing more than that. I’m just happy that until now, we’re still good friends,” Jameson says alluding to the series Ngayon at Kailanman top-billed by Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia.
So, it’s not true that he is trying to woo the lovely lass?
“That’s what people thought, but in reality, there’s no courtship happening. I don’t want things to happen as fast as that. Elisse and I are just friends and we’re glad we got to know each other while doing the soap. To reiterate, there’s nothing special between us.”
Some quarters stress that he won’t be able to compose a poem on-the-spot if he doesn’t have special feelings for Elisse.
“Well, I really compose haikus. I guess it’s one of my natural gifts so it appears easy for me. I consider Elisse as a good subject because apart from being a good friend of mine, she’s a nice girl. She’s got no pretensions,” he says.
“She’s simply being herself and I like that. She’s nice and jolly as well. She cracks down jokes. She’s really a fun person to talk to. I really enjoy her presence. It’s just that we don’t really get to see each other lately. We’re both busy with our respective shows,” Jameson adds.
Some fans say that if ever, he needs to ask permission from his fellow Hashtags member McCoy de Leon if he decides to court Elisse in the future. As everyone knows, McCoy and Elisse were a former love team and became an item.
“I don’t see the need for that since at this point, I have no plans whatsoever. Of course, everyone knows what happened between them. What’s important is I’m friends with both of them.”
Jameson explains that nothing has changed with his friendship with McCoy in the midst of this controversy.
“McCoy and I just talk when we’re in It’s Showtime as members of the Hashtags. We don’t really hang around or go out. Before, we used to play games together. We’re just cool.”
For the be-dimpled young star, work is his top priority.
“I’ve been very vocal about it even before. My work is on top of the list along with my family and friends. It feels good that at present, I’m busy with various projects. I want it to continue that way. I don’t like to disrupt the flow or ruin the momentum,” ends Jameson.
