Lauren Young On Why Sister Megan & Mikael Daez Won't Admit They're On: 'Bahala Sila'

LAUREN YOUNG obviously impressed GMA management with her fine performance in “Mundo Mo’y Akin”, her first show as a Kapuso after she moved from ABS-CBN. Right after it ended last week, here she is now cast in two new shows. She plays the lead in the new Sunday afternoon youth-oriented show, “Dormitoryo”, that starts airing on September 22. Then she also plays Lorna Tolentino’s daughter in the new primetime soap, “Genesis”, starring Dingdong Dantes who’ll now be proclaimed as the Primetime King.

“I’m really so happy with the way my career is going here in GMA,” she says. “It’s great to be in a different kind of youth show like ‘Dormitoryo’ kasi hindi ito yung usual pa-cute love story but a suspense-thriller. Kakaiba siya talaga kaya sana, ma-accept ng viewers. I play Hazel, an incoming freshman in Branwood College. Mapapatira ako sa dorm called Holy Spirit Manor. Doon, I will feel the presence of a girl who just died, si Wyn Marquez, who’s asking for help para malaman kung sino ang pumatay sa kanya. Kasama namin sa dorm sina Annicka Dolonius, Mayton Eugenio and Ash Nordstrom, with Enzo Pineda and Ruru Madrid as the leading men. Every Sunday, may mare-reveal na secret among the characters. Lahat kasi kami, may lihim. Kami mismo, nae-excite kasi we don’t know how the story will go. Hindi nire-reveal sa’min ng writer-director ng show, si Jun Lana.”

How’s her sister Megan doing in Indonesia as she competes in Miss World? “She’s having a lot of fun. She updates us, like ngayon, they just moved to a new hotel. At meron pa rin daw swimsuit competition, for one-piece lang, hindi bikini, tapos naka-sarong sila. Our whole family will go there on September 27 to support in time for the coronation night on September 28.”

Will Mikael Daez be with them? “I think mauuna siya roon.” How come both Megan and Mikael keep on denying their relationship when it’s obvious they’re on? “Ay, ewan ko sa kanila. Bahala sila doon. Basta help us pray na lang for Megan to win the Miss World title on September 28.”

Lauren is also lucky that GMA allowed her to do a movie for TV5’s CineFilipino filmfest that opens on September 18. She’s in the psychological thriller, “Puti”, written and directed by Mike Alcazaren. “I play the nurse of Ian Veneracion’s son na naaksidente. That’s all I can reveal as there’s a surprise in my character sa ending.”
