Megan Young Had Fun Working With Ai Ai De Las Alas In 'Our Mighty Yaya', Will Soon Do A TV Movie For Netflix

MEGAN YOUNG had so much fun doing “Our Mighty Yaya” with Ai Ai de las Alas. “I’m not really used to doing comedy,” she says. “E, kapag kaeksena ko si Ms. Ai Ai de las Alas at nagpapatawa siya and delivering her punchlines, hindi ako makapag-focus at di ko mapigilang matawa kahit nagte-take na. E, kailangan pa naman, seryoso yung mukha ko kasi masungit yung character ko dito as the stepmother of the kids na inaalagaan ni Ms. Ai Ai. But I really enjoyed working with her and learning experience din ito for me on how to do comedy. Kuwentuhan kami sa set ng ‘Our Mighty Yaya’ kasi kahit big star siya, pantay-pantay ang tingin niya sa lahat ng tao, co-stars man niya o crew members. People will enjoy watching the movie kasi it’s not only funny but also heartwarming, talagang para sa buong family.”

Since “Our Mighty Yaya” is a tribute to yayas, does she have a personal experience with a yaya? “Actually, wala, kasi we grew up ng mga kapatid ko na walang yaya. But when I joined showbiz at 15, nagkaroon ako ng P.A. (personal assistant) who became very close to me at naging good friend ko talaga. Eventually, she had to leave nang mag-asawa na siya, but we still communicate up to now.”

Megan has just returned from the famous vacation island resort, Maldives, with her BF Mikael Daez, and she also has just renewed her contract with the Kapuso network. “I signed up for three more years exclusive contract with them kasi happy naman ako sa projects nila for me.”

She was in “Alyas Robin Hood” and there will be a sequel, but we heard that she’ll no longer be part of Book 2. “Yes, kasi namatay na yung character ko sa Book 1. But they’re giving me another show. Also, in July, I am leaving for the U.S. I’ve signed up with the Innovative Artists Agency to manage me and they got me a TV movie deal na gagawin ko for Netflix. I hope it will open doors for me to have a career abroad.”
