"Sobrang swerte ako na naisama ako sa Be Careful With My Heart. Yung mga nakaka-work mo marami kang matutunan kasi nakikita mo kung paano sila magtrabaho,” says Shy Carlos who plays the love interest of Jerome Ponce a.k.a. Luke in ABS-CBN's hit daytime soap.

“Slowly but surely.”

This is how Shy Carlos described her pursuit of stardom in showbiz for the last eight years.

She has appeared in different teleseryes in the three major TV networks and made a debut appearance in the movie A Secret Affair as Anne Curtis’s younger sister.

Most recently, Shy has joined the cast of ABS-CBN’s hit daytime soap, Be Careful With My Heart.

In the story, she is cast as Jerome Ponce’s fellow intern, whose friendly demeanor and instant rapport with his twin sisters added to his attraction towards her.

“I am Joni. Kasama ko si Luke [played by Jerome] na nago-OJT [on the job training] sa company nila Sir Chief.

“Yung character ko galing sa mahirap, medyo hardworking at ipinaglalaban yung gusto niya,” said Shy in an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal).

LEARNING FROM CO-STARS. Asked how she feels about being part of a very successful series, Shy shared that it’s truly a blessing because she learns a lot from her co-stars.

“Sobrang swerte ako na naisama ako sa Be Careful With My Heart.

“Yung mga nakaka-work mo marami kang matutunan kasi nakikita mo kung paano sila magtrabaho.”

The Filipino-Swiss actress added that she didn’t have a hard time establishing rapport with Jerome and her other co-stars considering that she’s a late addition to the cast.

“Siyempre close na sila dahil two years nang umeere yung show. Pero ina-accept nila with open arms.

“Four weeks ago lang na-introduce yung character ko.

“So far si Jerome ang palagi kong nakakaeksena. Nakakatawa siya. Mahilig siya mangasar. So ok naman.”
