Although the former child star has been in showbiz for several years now, he hasnít had a lead role yet, something he admits he has been dreaming about for the longest time. But now, it seems his dream is finally coming true with a movie in the planning stage. "I am looking forward to that. Matagal ko na rin po pangarap yun. Secret pa pero hopefully this year [ma-release], inaayos na siya, pinag-uusapan na. Wala pa final casting pero pinag-uusapan na."
While this break may be a long time coming, John is very grateful for the opportunity and the fact that he is still in the biz while some of his contemporaries have long since retired. He said that aside from hard work, the secret to staying in showbiz is to be respectful and professional in dealing with the people in the industry. "Be nice lang talaga. Naniniwala ako na ang mga artista tumatagal kapag mabait at marunong rumespeto sa kapwa artista at sa mga katrabaho."
