MEGAN Young got very positive reviews for her effective portrayal of Alice, the young stepmother of Zoren Legaspi’s three kids from his late wife.
Megan’s Alice is always at odds with her stepchildren and their yaya in Regal Entertainment’s hit “Our Mighty Yaya.” Mother Lily Monteverde gave a thanksgiving press con at Valencia Events Place last week, the only producer who does this now.
The film is now extended in several theaters.
“Well, I’m glad maraming nakagusto sa performance ko kasi most of the time, hindi ako ‘yung character na ginagampanan ko sa movie,” she says.
If Megan’s acting has improved, some folks cannot say the same for her boyfriend who just renewed his contract with the Kapuso network. As one writer told us: “Sabihin mo nga kay Megan, turuan niya si Mikael Daez na umarte, o pakunin ng workshop. Kasi ang ganda ng role niya sa ‘Legally Blind,’ but parang pamasko ang acting niya, Christmas ham. Ang gagaling nina Janine Gutierrez, Marc Abaya, Lauren Young na puro natural lang at relaxed, pero pagdating sa kanya, uma-acting talaga siya.”
Of course, we didn’t have the heart to tell that to Megan. Instead, we said their photos in their social media account seem to indicate they’re ready for the next step: settling down. “Naku, hindi pa. As of now, we’re just enjoying ourselves. Chill lang. Pareho kaming marami pang plans sa buhay, sa aming careers.”
Megan will leave for the US in July to try her luck in Hollywood where she already has an agent. “Pero nakasalalay pa rin ‘yan sa work ko sa GMA-7. If they’d give me a new project, then priority ko pa rin sila.”
