        Actor JC Santos latest movie role was close to playing out in real life when he was feeling the effects of the COVID-19 crisis last year. In the contemporary romantic film Dito at Doon, Santos portrays Caloy, a delivery rider and the love team partner of actress Janine Gutierrez’ character Len.

        Off-cam, he had seriously thought about quitting show business and taking a chance on food delivery service due to the uncertainty amid the pandemic, not to mention the ABS-CBN shutdown.

        Challenging iyong idea na hindi ko alam kung magkakatrabaho ako. Actually iyon iyong pinakamahirap. Hindi ko alam kung kailan magkakatrabaho, at siyempre, nasanay ka na every month, may dumarating, alam mo iyon? Tapos biglang, uy, wala! Tapos nagsara yung network,” he revealed in an interview with PEP.ph.

        Tapos hindi mo alam kung anong mangyayari bukas, tapos, lumalala iyong [COVID-19] cases. So that was really bad for me.

        It came to a point where Santos was browsing for a motorcycle and telling his wife, Magluto ka, ilagay natin sa garapon, ide-deliver ko na.” He revealed having considered taking a break from acting because he needs to pay the bills as he contemplated his family’s future.

        He admitted: “Nag-worry ako nang konti. Pero parang isang araw lang naman dumating sa akin iyon. Sige, tiisin ko pa, kahit papaano, so ganun umabot iyong frustration ko.

        Instead, Santos took advantage of the extended time off and focused on raising their one-year-old daughter. JC Santos said the experience changed his mindset, calling it the good side of what happened to him in 2020.
