In a recent interview for their Cineko Production movie “Bes And The Beshies,” he enumerated her work rules.

“’Yung work ethics ni mama bawal ma-late and never ever kang magre-reklamo,” he said. “Tsaka kailangan paghirapan mo ’yung trabaho mo. Kumbaga wala naman pong madali eh. Kaya ang turo sa akin ni mama lahat tiyagain kasi walang shortcut. Basta dapat maging masipag.”

Sancho sees her mom as his role model.

“Kasi si mama mabait eh so as much as possible ina-apply ko rin ’yun,” he related.

“Kumbaga ’wag kang magsasalita ng masama tungkol sa kapwa mo. Kung meron kang hindi nagugustuhan sa mga katrabaho mo, try mo na lang intindihin. Kung kaya mong intindihin, intindihin mo na lang kasi si mama ganu’n, walang reklamo at all.”

Does Ai Ai open doors for him in the industry?

“Sinasama niya po ako sa mga movie niya pero hindi po siya ’yung tipon na ‘Bigyan mo naman ng trabaho ’yung anak ko,’ hindi po ganu’n,” he said. “Kumbaga kahit nu’ng nasa GMA pa ako, hindi naman ako nagre-request ng trabaho. Kung ano ’yung ibigay sa akin excited po akong gawin.”

Stepping stone

Sancho plays Greco on “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.” The character is a member of rebel group Pulang Araw. He is the right hand of the main antagonists.

The actor considers being part of the show as overwhelming, particularly now that some of its fans recognize him for job well done.

“Ngayon ’pag nasa labas napapansin na ako,” he enthused. “Minsan ’pag sa mall may sisigaw na ‘Hoy Pulang Araw’ tapos mapapalingon ka na lang.”

The actor shared that being in show business has always been one of his dreams. Sancho is thankful for the exposure he gets.

“Bes And The Beshies,” co-starring Ai Ai, Carmi Martin, Beauty Gonzales and Zsa Zsa Padilla, is about four women facing real life struggles. Sancho plays the role of Beauty’s boyfriend who doesn’t speak much.

“Hindi naman sa pipi kumbaga parang tatanga-tanga ’yung role ko dito,” he said. “Parang mahal na mahal ko lang si Beauty. Sobrang na me-mesmerize lang ako sa kanya na I’m out of words.”

Though he doesn’t have a scene with Ai Ai, he cleared it is just coincidence that the story flows like that. He is comfortable working with her though ever cognizant of her stature in local Tinseltown.

“Siyempre si Ai Ai delas Alas ’yun,” he said, smiling. “Idol ko siya pagdating sa pagiging artista and ’yung work ethic niya hindi ko lang tina-try, ginagawa ko ’yun – kung paano ko siya nakikitang mag trabaho ’yun din ’yung ina-apply ko sa akin.”

Step dad?

He is happy her mother’s relationships with 23-year-old Gerald Sibayan is altar-bound.

Though the 52-year-old actress has a 29 year-gap with the fiancé, his children are all for the union.

Er, will he call Gerald dad?

“Ang weird naman nu’ng dad,” he said, laughing. “Matagal na namin na establish ’yung (tawagan na kumpadre) tsaka dream po talaga namin kay mama na maikasal.”

He warns those who say of Gerald “iiwan ka niya” and “pera lang ang habol” to just drop it.

“Nakikita ko po si Gerald sa bahay. Marami ng napatunayan si Gerald sa amin, kumbaga 100 percent ako kay Gerald without a doubt,” he related. “Tsaka nakikita ko kung paano niya inaalagaan si mama and napakasipag po nu’n. Iba ’yung prinsipyo ng taong ’yun.”

Sancho shared they did not even need to test Gerald’s genuine love for their mother.

“Hindi po namin siya sinubukan – sinubaybayan lang po namin siya kung paano siya kay mama. Kasi pagdating naman po sa pag-ibig, pagdating po sa love life ni mama, hindi naman po kami nakikialam.”

He added that they’ve always been supportive of their mom’s decision as “kung saan siya masaya du’n din kami.”

“Kumbaga the only time na iintrada kami eh ’pag hindi na siya masaya. Na kunware nagkakagulo o nakikita na namin na umiiyak siya or nagkakaproblema na siya. That’s the only time na makikialam kami.”

Truth be told, Sancho even serves as Gerald’s “lawyer” at times.

“Kasi minsan meron silang hindi pagkakaunawaan ni mama tapos sa akin siya tumatakbo na parang ‘Kumpadre kausapin mo naman si mama mo’ sabi ko ‘Ah sige ako bahala ano bang nangyari?

“So ina-analyze ko muna siyempre hindi naman ako pwedeng basta pumanig sa kanya at the same time hindi rin naman ako basta papanig kay mama kumbaga gina-gauge ko pa rin kung paano ko iha-handle, kung paano ko kakausapin si mama but at the same time paano ko ire-relay ’yung gustong sabihin ni Gerald,” he shared.
