Starstruck II alumna and Miss World 2013 Megan Young remains a loyal Kapuso as she renewed last February 8 her exclusive contract with GMA Network, Inc.
The beauty queen and versatile Kapuso actress and TV Host said that she is very happy to renew her ties with GMA, “Of course, dito ako sa GMA nagsimula so it’s nice to be here with my family. Last year, naging busy talaga ako dahil sa The Stepdaughters. I’m really thankful to GMA for giving us a program that would showcase our talent. This year, I’m looking forward to something different. I don’t mind doing another Afternoon series kasi nag-enjoy ako. But I’m also looking forward to hosting jobs this year.”
Present in the contract signing were GMA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Atty. Felipe L. Gozon, GMA Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Felipe S. Yalong, GMA Entertainment Group’s Senior Vice President Lilybeth G. Rasonable, GMA Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara, and Arnold Vegafria, Megan’s manager.
Megan’s last program with GMA was the highly-successful and top-rating Afternoon Prime series The Stepdaughters with Mikael Daez and Katrina Halili. This time around, she wants try light dramas and romantic comedies for her next project.
“Ang gusto ko talaga yung mga romcom. Pero never pa ako nakagawa ng ganito. Hilig ko talaga yung mga Koreanovela. So that’s kind of my dream. I know some people aspire for heavy roles pero ako I love the lightness and endearing moments of Koreanovelas. So maybe a story like that is something I look forward to. I also love anime na gagawing live action. I’ve never done anything like that.”
During the contract signing, Atty. Gozon shared that he is delighted with the new chapter of Megan’s life in GMA, “Si Megan naman, hindi lang siya isa sa pinakamagagandang artista natin dito. Kaya tayo ay natutuwa na siya ay nag-renew uli ng kontrata sa atin sapagkat sa tingin ko, malayo pa ang mararating niya sa showbiz.”
Rasonable, on the other hand, revealed that the Network is already gearing up for Megan’s next big projects in the Kapuso Station, “Siyempre iniisipan na natin siya ng susunod niyang soap. Kasi di ba very successful ang The Stepdaughters na almost one year na tumakbo. So happy tayo sa performance niya dun. She showed na magaling siya sa drama. Ang layo na ng inimprove niya from before. So we want to do more of that. And yes, she’s also a good host.”
