Jake Vargas Signs Four-Year Contract With GMA-7Jake Vargas will remain a Kapuso after signing a four-year contract with GMA-7. This is a big opportunity for him because he will be able to make a lot of projects with the network.
He is excited to finally be an exclusive artist of GMA-7. Although he has always worked with the network, it wasn't until this contract that he has become exclusively a Kapuso.
He doesn't want to give any details yet on the projects he's going to do with this contract, but it's enough to know that he will surely have projects with the network.
His girlfriend, Bea Binene, has also just signed the contract. They're supposed to sign the contract together, but Jake has been so busy that he was only able to meet with the executives now.
Now that he is a certified Kapuso, what are his expectations? He wants to work more with Bea because it has been a long time since they last worked together. Next year, they will hopefully have more projects together.
He is not choosy when it comes to projects being given to him. Now, he is working in a teen-oriented show with Bea in "Strawberry Lane." However, Jake said he is also fine if he's going to be offered with more mature roles.
What's important for him is that he has work. "Mahirap kaya ang mabakante at walang trabaho, wala kang kita." It's hard to be choosy when there are many artists out there who can take a particular project from you.
He is not worried that there are a lot of new artists from reality shows such as "Starstruck" because in this industry, as long as you're persistent, you will never long for work.
The network just needs to see that you are hardworking, so that they will be committed enough in your career.
Meanwhile, Jake said he is already planning for the future. Right now, he is thinking about what business he can get into, so that he has something to fall back on if his showbiz career finally ended.
He knows he won't be always successful, so he wants to work as much as he can now and save some money for the future. He also hopes Bea will be his lifelong partner.
Aside from this contract, Jake also has a second album and another movie for 2015. He and Bea will star in "Liwanag sa Dilim" next year. His second album will also be released next year.
