It’s been three months since she stepped into the world of acting and Michelle Vito admits she is slowly starting to get used to being on-cam. “Medyo may nahihirapan pa rin akong ginagawa na scenes pero okay lang. Pinaka-challenging scenes for me siguro yung lagi akong nagtataray so ngayon biglang shift na parang biglang nagbago yung ugali ko completely. Dapat abangan ng viewers ni Aryana kasi may magbabago sa attitude ni Megan sa mga susunod na weeks,” she shares. Although she is shy in real-life, Michelle says she has changed a lot since she started getting into acting. “Mas naging more confident na ako. Sanay na rin ako sa mga nangyayari, siyempre araw araw umaarte,” she tells Push.com.ph.
On the set, Michelle says the cast is very close to each other and even recently attended a screening of The Healing together in support of Pokwang, who plays Ofelia, Aryana’s mother in the fantaserye. “Gusto ko si Tita Pokie umarte. Pinapanuod ko talaga movies niya. Nanuod kami ng Aryana cast ng The Healing, grabe nakakatakot! Kasama ko sila Ella, masaya tapos bonding ng Aryana. Andun rin sila Kris Aquino and Lucy Torres. Okay naman lahat. Yung bonding ng cast okay lang din, masaya. Nag-o-open up kami, yung friendship namin. Nagkaroon kami ng callsign ni Ella na ‘Best,’ parang best friend ganun. Palagi kaming magkausap sa Blackberry messenger, palagi kaming nagke-kwentuhan kahit hindi kami magkasama.”
The 14-year-old also says she is enjoying her newfound popularity. “Masaya lang. Siyempre minsan sasabihan ka pa nila na ‘Ang galing galing mo’ or ‘Ang ganda ganda mo’ so masaya yung feeling. Sa Twitter minsan may nagagalit pero pag nakikita na nila ako sa public, wala namang nang-aaway sa akin. Lahat sila mabait,” she reveals.
Currently doing home school, Michelle says she enjoys being able to work and study at the same time. “I am home schooled pero I take the quizzes and tests sa school pa rin. 'Pag wala akong taping, pumupunta akong school tapos kunyari nasa taping ako or weekends, ginagawa ko yung mga paces ko. 'Pag wala akong taping, pumapasok ako to take the test. On my free days siyempre kailangan ko din magpahinga siyempre yung Sunday kailangan ko magpunta ng church. Yun lang yung ginagawa ko pag walang work.”
As for her love life, Michelle divulges she has had some suitors ever since she started Aryana, but says she is too young for love. “Hindi ko na lang pinapansin kung meron, parang nevermind. So work, yung career first at saka studies first.” The model-turned-actress also admits she used to have a crush on Princess and I star Daniel Padilla. “Before lang yun (laughs). Hindi na ngayon. Wala lang, parang hindi na lang. Si Josh Hutchinson na lang at saka yung si Spiderman (laughs). Si Andrew Garfield kasi ang cute niya pag nag-sa-smile siya,” she adds.
