From being the lead star of Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Hiyas, Megan Young is back on television as one of the supporting actors of the ABS-CBN primetime series A Beautiful Affair.
The 22-year-old actress said she doesn’t mind getting a supporting role after being the lead star in an afternoon series.
“I don’t think that should be something for me to feel less about myself,” said Megan in an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the media during the press conference of A Beautiful Affair recently.
The Kapamilya actress pointed out that it’s not about how big or small the character is, but it depends on how it will be portrayed.
She narrated, “My acting coach always tells me that there are no small roles, just small actors.
“It always depends on your portrayal.
“Paano kung bida ka pero hindi naman pala maganda ‘yong pagkaka-portray mo ng bida?
“And may mga role na tulad ng role ko dito na si Ava, pwede mong i-build up kasi you can make it so much more kung ano ‘yong nakalagay sa script—pwedeng parang Angel Aquino sa Magkaribal or Gretchen Barretto sa Princess and I, or ‘yong character ko sa Betty La Fea na si Marcella.”
As an actor, Megan usually thinks of how she can portray her character in a different manner.
She explained, “You know, hindi mo pwedeng gusto na, ‘Ito lang ako. Ito lang ang role ko. Ito lang ang kaya niya.’
“As a person, ikaw nga mismo na marami pang magagawa, paano pa ang character na kaya nila.”
Another factor that made Megan accept this project was that she would be working with her favorite showbiz loveteam: Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz.
“For me, to work with Bea and John Lloyd is a huge part of my career already, and to work with them twice already, iba na ‘yon.
“Kasi, siyempre ako, kinikilig ako. I’m a Basha and Popoy fan sa One More Chance, fan girl talaga ako ng team up nila.”
Megan first worked with the popular loveteam in the Philippine adaptation of the Colombian TV series, I Love Betty La Fea (2008).
In general, Megan said about being part of A Beautiful Affair, “Masaya ako, siyempre, kasi they trusted me na makasama sa A Beautiful Affair.
“It’s always an honor to be considered to be a part of a new soap.”
