Lauren Young On Sister Megan's  Bid To Become Miss World Philippines Beauty Titlist

LAUREN YOUNG says she’s so happy for her sister Megan’s joining the Miss World Philippines pageant. “Dream niya talaga to join a beauty contest noon pa man and I’m glad her dream is now coming true. And she’s really working hard and training hard for it. Panay ang workout niya, right diet, yung tamang paglakad and she’s even training hard for the question and answer portion. By next week, all the candidates will have to stay na inside the Solaire Hotel until the coronation night on August 18. Our whole family will be there to support her.”

How about her? Does she also plan to join a beauty pageant later? “No. Hindi ko dream yun. I’m really more into acting. And I’m glad that my performance as Darlene in GMA-7’s ‘Mundo Mo’y Akin’ is getting a lot of good feedback. Mas maganda raw ang acting ko rito kaysa noon sa ‘Mula sa Puso’ ng ABS-CBN. E, siempre, I was so young then. Hindi pa ako hinog. Dito, mas nag-mature na ang acting ko as someone so in love, even obsessed with Alden Richards, who plays Jerome.”

When we visited them on the set being taped at Fernbrook Garden, they were shooting a motel scene. “Nilasing ko si Jerome dito para may mangyari sa amin. Makukunan pala ang tryst namin sa loob ng room at lalabas as a video scandal.”

“Mundo Mo’y Akin” will end on August 23 and will be replaced by Lovi Poe’s “Akin Pa Rin ang Bukas” on August 26. But even before it ends, Lauren already has a news assignment, “Dormitoryo”, which will replace “Kakambal ni Eliana”. Joining her in the cast is her alleged rival over Elmo Magalona, Julie Anne San Jose, directed by Jun Lana. “But Elmo won’t be in the cast, kami lang ni Julie Anne, so hindi magiging love triangle ito like what their fans expect,” she says.
