Empress admits she is considering other networks: 'May time na mag-move on ka na lang'


030814-empress_main.jpgAfter starting out in showbiz as a child star at the age of nine, Empress admitted she feels she still has a lot to learn now after she recently turned 21 last February 19. Last seen in the Kapamilya series Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala, Empress admitted she misses doing a regular series. Her last starring role was in Rosalka in 2010 where she played a hunchback.

“Ako rin naman nabitin at isa siguro sa mga wishes ko yung magka-ganun ulit na sariling teleserye, ganun. Pero hind ko alam kung anong plan nila, kung anong gusto nila for me, kung may ibibigay pa ba sila pero ewan ko, marami pa namang ibang opportunities sa ibang lugar. (laughs). Siguro may times na talaga na kailangan mo mag-move on, kung gusto talaga nila mag-stay ka mapag-uusapan naman lahat pero siyempre may mga bagay talaga na nakakainip. Hindi ko alam, we'll see na lang kung anong mangyayari, kung may mga plans sa kung nasan man ako ngayon or sa mga opportunities sa labas,” she admitted.

In an interview during her birthday outreach with street children held last February 23, Sunday, in Quezon City, Empress couldn’t help but admit that she is already considering other options when it comes to her career. This year, her last TV appearance was in Maalaala Mo Kaya where she portrayed Iza Calzado in the “Pagkain” episode.

Hindi ko rin alam kung bakit wala pa or bakit siya matagal pero siguro they have their own reason kung wala and that's also for me to find out kasi dadating talaga yung time na maiinip ka, mag-iisip ka and kung wala dito, marami pa namang opportunities sa labas. Siyempre hindi mo naman mapipilit ang isang bagay kung wala talagang plano or desisyon para sa iyo di ba? Siguro may time na mag-move on ka na lang. Ang hirap naman ipagsiksikan ang sarili mo. Basta ako never ako nagsalita tungkol dun. Sa ngayon na-fi-feel ko na hindi lang pala ako ang nakakapansin, marami rin palang ibang tao. So parang ang kini-kuwestiyon ko na rin yung sarili ko at kung ano yung nangyayari,” she shared.

Empress said she has already opened up these thoughts to management especially since her contract is ending next month. The talented actress said her heart will always belong to ABS-CBN, but she does not know when she will be given another regular project. “Parang wala silang mabigay na sagot. Kapag ay mga opportunities or offers na mas maganda, why not di ba? Ako rin sobrang gustong-gusto ko na ulit gawin yung (teleserye) pero sabi ko madami pa namang opportunities pa na puwede ko pasukan so tingnan natin kung sino pa yung puwede ko kausapin or whatever. Hindi lang naman ako yung artista, madaming artista and alam ko na iba iba yung mga parts namin bilang artista, iba iba yung binibigay sa aming branding. I started as a child.
