Body Talk with Ejay Falcon

Five years after he emerged winner of the PBB (Pinoy Big Brother) Teen Edition, Ejay has learned how to go with the big-city flow while retaining his endearing promdi-ness

What did they say again?

Oh yes: You can take a boy out of the country but you can’t take the country out of a boy.

Five years after he emerged from Big Brother’s house, the winner of the PBB (Pinoy Big Brother) Teen Edition Plus, Ejay Falcon has learned how to go with the city-life flow while at the same time retaining his endearing promdi nature.

When he goes home to Bacawan (his home barrio in Pola town, Mindoro), Ejay touches base with old friends including those at the pier where he used to work as copra kargador like his father (actually, foster father) to help augment the family’s meager income. His hometown best friend is now his personal assistant.

“Nadagdagan ang confidence ko,” admitted Ejay who has yet to meet his biological father, a Frenchman. And his finances have considerably improved. “I am sending my siblings to school,” two in college, one in high school and one in elementary. What he misses is buying bargain items in the tiangge.

Thanks to workshops his acting has improved. Introduced in the Kapamilya soap Katorse (with Xian Lim, Enchong Dee and Erich Gonzales), Ejay did a few more (Momay, Tanging Yaman, Guns & Roses, etc.), plus two movies (Fr. Jejemon, Dolphy’s last starrer; and My Pledge of Love with Robin Padilla and Mariel Rodriguez). His biggest break is Dugong Buhay, which premieres this afternoon on ABS-CBN (and worldwide on The Filipino Channel, April 9 in Australia, Guam and New Zealand), the remake of the Carlo J. Caparas komiks serial filmed by Viva Films with Ramon Revilla Sr. and Bong in 1984, now with Toto Natividad directing. Ejay plays the son (Bong’s role) and Nonie Buencamino the father (Ramon Sr.’s role).
