Shy Carlos shrugs off comparison to Nadine Lustre
020216-shy_main.jpgAfter Nadine Lustre, another Pop Girls member is taking a shot at stardom in the person of Shy Carlos.

Shy is finally taking on the banner role as 2016’s Tasya Fantasya after doing well in several minor roles on the big screen. Among them were Para sa Hopeless Romantic and Lumayo Ka Nga Sa Akin.

Siyempre kinikilig ako kasi every project ‘yun naman talaga ang goal ko, ang mabigyan ng justice ang bawat characters. ‘Yung mga small roles hindi naman talaga siya small roles eh, part siya para mabuo ang isang magandang project or pelikula or show so sobrang saya ko na na-a-appreciate ng mga tao ‘yung mga ginagawa ko ‘yun,” she said during her upcoming show’s grand press conference.

She even added, “Kahit na sinasabi nila na small roles siya, para sa akin big ‘yun.

Not many are aware that Shy and Nadine both started in Viva’s all-girl group called Pop Girls.

According to the Swiss-Filipino actress, she and Nadine are actually close especially since the latter was the group’s lead vocalist. 

However, due to Nadine’s tight schedule as part of the top-rating soap On The Wings of Love, Shy shared that “Hindi pa [kami nagkakausap] kasi nasa SanFo siya and hindi na kami nagkikita. Ang tagal na naming hindi nagkikita dahil super busy niya.”

Is she bothered that a lot of people are now linking her name and even comparing her to Nadine?

“‘Yun nga, katulad ng sinabi ni Boss, training ground namin ang Pop Girls. Ako kasi parang ine-enjoy ko lang ang mga nangyayari. Hindi ko pine-pressure ang sarili ko ‘Oh dapat by this time, ito na ito na.’ Go with the flow. ‘Yun ako. ‘Yun nga gusto ko bawat character nagagawan ko ng justice. Parang pinaghihirapan ko kung ano man,” she explained.

Halfway through the press conference, Viva Entertainment’s head honcho revealed that Shy was actually the second girl whom they are grooming to be the next big star from the now-defunct Pop Girls.

Before any speculations could arise, Shy clarified that she is not consciously digressing from what Nadine is currently doing which is romance and light drama.

“Hindi, hindi. Actually before nung nag-start ako ng comedy parang na-a-awkward-an ako sa sarili ko eventually nakita na ‘Ay ang saya pala mag-comedy’ especially kapag nakikita mo na natatawa ‘yung mga tao,” she explained.

Since Nadine was able to experience stardom first, Shy admitted that she did ask her a few questions.

Hindi tips eh parang naalala ko tinanong ko yata siya ‘Uy anong feeling?’ kasi siyempre hindi naman naming ine-expect na aabot sa ganyan siyempre nag-start kami na isang girl group,” she revealed. “So, parang anong feeling? Okay ba? Parang siya okay naman pero nakikita mo nga na kulang lang siya sa tulog like darating siya sa set na parang zombie na pero parang na-e-enjoy naman niya.

For what it’s worth, Shy claimed that she’s well-prepared for stardom as the new Tasya Fantasya.

The show starts airing this February 6 on TV5.
