Two years after giving birth to her daughter Athalia, Empress Schuck said she did not expect to still be as active in her showbiz career after becoming a mom unexpectedly. “Actually lahat ng na-ri-receive ko ngayon never ko na-imagine, never ko in-expect. I just kept on praying and sobrang blessing lang talaga magkaroon ng baby. Blessed talaga pag may baby. Blessing ang baby at saka sobrang hindi ko in-expect na magiging ganito pa na magiging interested pa sila sa akin, na kukunin pa nila ako. Thank you sa lahat ng sumusuporta at interested pa rin sa akin after all. God is great at siyempre pag may tiyaga, may nilaga di ba? Hindi naman natin nakukuha ng basta basta yun. Siyemore we have to work hard for it. Thankful ako na nakikita nila yun at nandun pa rin sila until now,” she shared during the A Spark in Samar movie contract signing held in Quezon City.

Empress shared that Althalia is one active kid. “Sobrang okay siya, sobrang terrible two na. Two years old na siya kaya good luck talaga (laughs). Pero sobrang saya. Sobra siyang hindi mo ma-explain na experience in life, na hindi mo alam na dadating pala sa buhay mo yung ganung kasayang experience. So I’m super happy,” she added.

The 25-year-old actress, who is one of the lead stars of the tourism film A Spark in Samar and the much-awaited historical epic Goyo, said she is feeling the pressure with every major project that is offered to her. “Siyempre when it comes to pressure, oo nakaka-pressure kasi parang although this is not my first movie na ginawa ko after my comeback pero it’s still a big deal kasi tatlo kami dito na mag-li-lead tapos ako pa yung isa sa matanda sa kanila ni Andrea Brillantes and Kristel Fulgar. Nakakakaba lang kung pano yung magiging performance ko, paano namin mapapaganda yung story and the fact na magiging entry kami sa MMFF (Metro Manila Film Festival), parang big deal na talaga yun so I’m sure gagawin namin lahat para mapaganda yung movie. Kakaiba rin siya sa mga nagawa namin before so sana mapakita namin lahat yung best namin,” she explained.

With her role in A Spark in Samar, Empress plays something different from her previous roles. “So far hindi pa naman ako nakakapag-portray ng ganun. Siyempre kakaiba siya kasi unang una Samar parang first time ko rin ma-lock in sa ibang probinsya so excited ako. Ako si Joey dito at parang designer ako dito tapos pumunta ako sa Samar with my boyfriend para meron kaming event na asikasuhin dun. Eventually may mangyayari, may mga twists na kailangan abangan dun. Kasi dayo ako sa Samar unlike Andrea na taga-Samar siya so parang totoo naman kasi first time ko ito. Siguro compared sa kanilang dalawa, ako din yung mas mature, mas serious kasi parang may trabaho na ako dito,” she shared.
