Megan Young On Getting Jealous With BF Mikael Daez' Kissing Scenes With Katrina Halili In 'The Stepdaughters'

MEGAN YOUNG’s relationship with BF Mikael Daez has been going strong for seven years now. What’s their secret? “I think it’s because we always keep our communication lines open,” she says. “When he does something na hindi ko nagustuhan, I’m not afraid to approach him and tell him about it. Ganun din naman siya sa’kin. For me, good communication talaga is the key to make a relationship work well.”

She’s also thankful that they help each other grow. “He’s the kind of person who’s dedicated in everything he does, be it in his businesses, in acting or in hosting. I like the energy he gives as he always gives his 100 percent of himself and that inspires me a lot to also give my very best.”

Doesn’t she get jealous when Mikael has kissing or romantic scenes with their co-star Katrina Halili in “The Stepdaughters”? “Ever since naman, hindi ako selosa. Kahit noong magka-love team sila ni Andrea Torres. I know part ng trabaho namin yun as actors so okay lang. At saka we always reassure each other na kami lang ang para sa isa’t isa. Walang iba. We might do these scenes sa mga katrabaho namin, but in the end, ikaw pa rin, walang iba.”

She’s now 28 and Mikael is 30. Don’t they have plans of settling down yet? “As of now, wala pa talaga. Basta at this point, masaya kami, kontento kami sa isa’t isa, but we’re not ready to start our own family yet. Mag-iipon muna kami bago yan.”

Meantime, their hit afternoon drama, “The Stepdaughters”, gets more intense in its new episodes especially after Megan as Mayumi gets a special gift from Gary Estrada as Hernan. It will be recalled that Gary and his family only became rich after they claimed the winning ticket that actually belonged to Megan’s late dad, Allan Paule. Now that Gary and her mom, Glydel Mercado as Luisa, have gotten married, Gary wants to make up for what he did and gives Megan the book that her dad meant to give her before he died. Gary also gives her a brand new car.

But of course, Gary’s own daughter, Katrina Halili as Isabelle, won’t take this sitting down and will continue to be hostile and combative when it comes to treating her stepsister Megan. “Tuloy ang iringan at awayan namin ni Katrina rito,” says Megan. “Mas titindi pa kahit ginagawa ng parents namin ang lahat para mapagbati kami at maging maganda ang pagsasama namin as their stepdaughters. Hinding-hindi patatalbog ang bawat isa lalo na sa pag-aagawan namin sa atensiyon ni Mikael as Francis.”
