Young star Clyde Avery Bagasbas made a heart-wrenching performance in the pilot week of newest Kapamilya Gold soap Doble Kara.
What many do not know is that Avery is very new in the business. In fact, her first acting stint was for the recently-launched primetime soap On The Wings of Love starring James Reid and Nadine Lustre as the young version of the latter.
How did you get the role for the Julia Montes starrer?
"May tumawag po sa Mama ko na sabi raw po na meron pong screen test. Tapos nung ini-screen test po nagustuhan po ako ni Direk. Tapos po 'yun dumirecho na and andito napo ako," she shared in a recent interview with Push.
Though she appeared like a professional child star in the soap especially during her scenes with Ariel Rivera and Mylene Dizon, Avery confessed that there were especially tough scenes.
"Medyo nahirapan po kasi laging nagpapalit palit. Kara tapos biglang Sara po ulit. Kaya po medyo mahirap po 'yung role na 'yun pero maganda rin naman po. Maayos," she recalled.
Another challenging portion of being part of Doble Kara, according to her, were those that involved crying.
As a newbie, Avery shared that the only workshops she was able to attend were those from where she lived.
"May workshop po sa Cavite, taga Cavite po kami. Doon po ako nagwo-workshop. Hindi po ako under ng Star Magic," she related.
During the show's screening, Avery's performance really left a mark on the audience.
To this Avery said, "Natuwa po ako kasi lalo 'yung bigla po silang nagpalakpakan. Nahiya rin po ako kasi 'yung part na umiiyak kasi nagtinginan po sila."
For someone who just joined show business, Avery couldn't be any grateful that she made a mark on audience's minds through her role on the soap.
"Masaya naman po kasi at least ngayon nakikilala po. Hindi naman po sa pagmamayabang pero at least ngayon po nakikilala na," she ended.
