Lauren Young Not Closing Doors On Sexy Roles Talks About Career Plans and Mula Sa Puso
With her first lead TV drama is about to end, “Mula sa Puso” star Lauren Young would like to continue her career as a dramatic actress and express her opinion about taking on sexy roles.
In her interview with Push.com.ph, Megan Young’s younger sister Lauren reveals that she is not yet ready to take on mature and sexy roles as she has a long way ahead of her and would like to focus on a dramatic career first before contemplating on other roles,which she expressed would be considered on most appropriate time in the most appropriate project.
The 17-year-old actress says,she is “still very young and I have a long way to go.”
“I’d like to stick to drama roles. I’m open sa lahat ng roles. Pero as of now, ayoko magpa-sexy. Hindi bagay sa age ko. But I’m not closing my doors,” she said.
Lauren Young,who plays Via in the hit remake “Mula Sa Puso” which topped nationwide ratings both on its timeslot and over-all TV ratings,portrays the character originally played by former ABS-CBN primetime princess,Claudine Baretto.
The original “Mula Sa Puso” has always been an epic tele-drama,its no wonder that Young is being compared with the original actress who portrayed Via.More so, Push.com.ph reported, however, that people see Barretto-which is famous for her superb acting skills and top-rating drama, more in “Mara Clara” star Julia Montes than in her.
Lauren,instead of comparing herself with Julia,she proactively expressed her admiration with the Mara Clara actress.
“[Si] Julia, napakagaling niya, hangang-hanga ako sa batang ‘yan,”Lauren said.
Landing a remake project,which the original fared successfully, has prompted some issues that the young actress is gaining the glory which was made by the original cast,particularly branded as Claudine Baretto’s shadow.
The teenage-star expressed her desire to make a name of her own and not treading on someone else’s shadow and exerting all her efforts to do her job well.
“I want to make a name for myself…Ayoko ma-compare kahit kanino. I just want to do my job,” she said.
As “Mula sa Puso” airs its final episode later today, Young said she will miss working with her co-stars.
“Ang dami kong natutunan dahil sa kanila. Direk Wenn (Deramas) taught me the value of humility and hard work. Natuto akong umiyak at mag-memorize ng lines on the spot. I owe it to him kung ano man ang narating ko ngayon sa showbiz,” she said.
Lauren,which is guaranteed to have a bright acting career,hopes to be able to work with her “Mula Sa Puso” co-stars on the future.Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade.
