Leila Alcasid on Regine Velasquez: ‘I love her very much’

032417-LeilaAlcasid_PUSH.jpgOn Tonight with Boy Abunda, the daughter of Ogie Alcasid, Leila Alcasid, said she has only been living in the country for two and a half months but she already knows she likes acting. “I really like acting. I would never have thought of it before. Back in Australia, I was not into the arts. So it was really a surprise for me, but then I came here, took workshops and stuff and I really like it.”

She’s also very excited because she will share the stage on ASAP this coming Sunday, March 26, with Sharon Cuneta’s daughter Frankie Pangilinan and Gary Valenciano’s daughter Kiana.

Asked how she gets along with her stepmom Regine Velasquez, Leila enthused, “we’re very close. She’s a very generous person, a very understanding person. Especially when I was coming here she knew I’d be missing my mom a lot. My mom and I are like best friends. She’s become obviously a mother figure to me. I love her very much.”
