Newcomer Lindsay De Vera Is Given Her Biggest Break As Dingdong Dantes' Niece Kidnapped By Dina Bonnevie In 'Alyas Robin Hood'

 GMA-7 GIVES newcomer Lindsay de Vera her biggest break in the current primetime hit, “Alyas Robin Hood”. Lindsay’s real name is Lindt Johnston and she started as a child star and TV commercial model when she 8 years old. Now a sweet 16, she plays Dingdong Dantes’ niece named Lizzy. This is their second time together as she was introduced in Dong’s teleserye last year, “Pari Koy”.

“Napakabait po niya and my dream is one day, maging leading lady rin sana ako ni Kuya Dong,” she says. “Nothing is impossible naman po, di ba? Baka four years from now, kapag 20 na ako, puede na akong kapareha niya. Libre naman ang mangarap, e. And I’m sure hindi lang ako ang may ganyang pangarap but also other young actresses.”

She comes from a family of doctors based in Pangasinan and she also wants to be a pediatrician some day. “Kaya lang, nabigyan ako ng chance sa showbiz at sayang naman to let go of the opportunities coming my way. I’m enjoying doing ‘Alyas Robin Hood’ as it gives me the chance to work with great actresses like Tita Jaclyn Jose and Tita Cherie Gil. Baka later, bumalik ako sa pag-aaral and finish college.”

She’s paired with Dave Bornea in “Alyas Robin Hood” but she says they’re just good friends off cam. “I want to focus muna seriously on my career kaya wala akong planong makipag-boyfriend. Kami ni Dave, friends lang talaga dahil lagi kaming nagkakasama sa iba’t ibang workshops ng GMA. He’s aware na career ang siyang priority ko.”

This week, Lindsay and Dave are kidnapped by Dina Bonnevie as Mama Daisy, the new evil villain who has joined “Alyas Robin Hood”. They are held captive by Dina and her cohorts, along with Dingdong Dantes as Pepe. Lindsay keeps on crying, scared of what Dina might do to them. But Dingdong manages to fight back and holds one of the guards hostage (Michael Flores). He then warns the other guards that he will kill Michael if they will not give him back his freedom.
