Laureen Uy says she is learning a lot from the cast of 'My Binondo Girl'


090411-laureen_main.jpgAfter making her small screen debut in the new Kapamilya series My Binondo Girl, newcomer Laureen Uy shared that her adjustment to being in showbiz has been easier because of the support of the people around her. “The hardest adjustment would be I guess yung oras kasi since I have a blog and a business, ang dami ko rin usually na ginagawa na ibang stuff. Pero sa taping kasi, parang ang saya lang so nawawala yung pagod ko kahit na hindi ako natutulog. Tapos yung makilala silang lahat kasi big stars na sila, lagi akong nahihiya. Pero sobra talaga nilang bait at lagi nila akong kinakausap, lagi nila akong isnasabihan na o ganito sa camera kailangan ngumiti ka, kailangan maganda so yun, nagtutulungan din lahat so ,” she shared with Push.com.ph.

Laureen is not totally unfamiliar in showbiz circles because of her older sister, celebrity stylist Liz Uy. The aspiring actress said even their friends in showbiz have been receptive of her being in the limelight even though she did not tell them right away about her being included in My Binondo Girl. “They’re actually all very supportive. Nagulat nga sila eh. Kasi hindi ko sinasabi na nag-wo-workshop ako at nasa My Binondo Girl ako. So parang nagulat na lang sila one day nakita nila yung trailer at kasama daw pala ako. Pero yun, binibigyan din nila ako ng tips, nagtanong ako kay Anne (Curtis), kay Raymond (Gutierrez), sa ate ko. Tapos sabi naman nila just show your true self and huwag kang mahihiya kung ano man yung dumating sayo dahil blessing yan lahat. Actually si Ate Kris (Aquino) nalaman lang niya na mag-aartista na ako sa Ate ko pero sinasabi naman niya na galingan ko and ang suwerte na nakuha ko ito agad. Lalo na since kasama ko mga big stars ng ABS-CBN. Ang alam ko close din kasi si Kim Chiu kay Kris Aquino so sinasabi niya na ang bait bait daw ni Kim at mabilis siyang katrabaho, ganun,” she shared.

The popular fashionista blogger turned actress also shared that she has learned a lot from the more veteran members of the My Binondo Girl cast like Cherry Pie Picache. “Actually madami akong natututunan. Yung first scene ko kasi was with Ms. Cherry Pie so natutulungan niya talaga ako kung san ako titingin at kung ano yung anggulo at emotion na dapat nasa mukha. Tapos si Kim actually nga minsan natatakot ako kasi ang guwapo pag lalake, tuwing magkasama kami lalake siya. Hindi na ako tumitingin baka ma-in love pa ako (laughs). Anyway ang dami kong natututunan sa mga stars dito. I’m enjoying the learning, learning, learning,” she said with a smile.
