Malaking bagay para kay Cassy Legaspi ang pagkakaroon ng mga magulang na artista.
Si Cassy at si Mavy, 19 anyos, ang kambal na anak nina Carmina Villarroel at Zoren Legaspi.
Tuluyang sumunod ang kambal sa yapak ng kanilang mga magulang at pumasok sa showbiz noong 2018.
Nasa bakuran ng Kapuso network ang pamilya Legaspi.
Sa YouTube video na in-upload ni Cassy noong September 26, 2020, sinagot nito kung mas challenging ba ang pagkakaroon ng mga magulang na artista lalo't nasa showbiz na rin siya.
Sabi ng young star, “Not really. In fact, I really feel more inspired and I’m very lucky, because ngayon nga, gusto ko nang maging artista."
Paliwanag pa ni Cassy, “When I visit my parents on set, and I see how they do the work first hand, it inspires me.
“I have two mentors at home who can help me. I’m so lucky, I’m blessed."
Samantala, sinabi rin ni Cassy na walang pagkakaiba para sa kanya ang low-key life at buhay sa spotlight.
Three years old pa lang daw kasi siya, nasa harap na siya ng camera.
"I just live my life as if no one is really watching because… how do I explain this? Because it's my life.
"Why do I have to care what other people think? If I'm happy, I'm happy. As long as I'm not hurting anyone then it's fine."
PREPARING FOR ACTING DEBUT
Ngayong nalalapit na ang una niyang sabak sa pag-arte, aminado si Cassy na nakaramdam siya ng pressure.
Sa GMA-7 teleseryeng First Yaya mangyayari ang acting debut ng young star.
Lahad niya, “I only felt the pressure, like, once, when I got the role as Nina in First Yaya.
“I was quite pressured because this is it.
"They’re gonna see my acting skills, and I’m the daughter of two actors. Will I be good?
“But I feel like I’m working towards it and I see improvement. And my acting coach sees that I’m doing well.
“And I’m constantly improving, then we’re good to go.
“Anyway, there’s always room for improvement and this is just my first teleserye, so there are more projects that I can keep improving.
“I don’t really mind.”
At habang naka-hold ang taping ng teleserye dahil sa pandemya, naghahanda raw si Cassy para sa kanyang first big break.
Sabi niya, “I think we’re gonna tape this year. Obviously, I had to prepare for that, and I want to come prepared physically.
"I just work out, eat healthier.
“Because when artistas have taping, nagpupuyat sila, so they need to make their immune system very, very healthy.”
Nasaksihan raw niya sa kanyang mga magulang kung gaano ka-demanding ang pag-arte.
“From what I see from my parents, the first thing in the morning you can be super happy, and then the next scene, you’re crying, then the next scene, you’re happy again.
“There are highs and lows every day, so you need to be able to be strong.”
Nag-acting workshop daw siya saka nagsasanay sa pagsasalita ng Filipino.
“Emotionally, I did acting workshops, so that helped a lot. That helped big time.
“But I also practice at home, like, emotions and stuff, how do I look when I’m crying. How do I look when I’m happy.
“And then for others, I read my parents’ scripts and practice Tagalog, ‘cause I’m not really fluent in Tagalog.
“But I’m getting there. Nawawala yung accent ko.
“The challenge for me is just the language. The rest, I know I can do it.
“I believe in myself. If I just continue to practice, I can accomplish it.”
Bukod sa commercials, co-host din si Cassy nina Carmina at Mavy sa Kapuso lifestyle show na Sarap, ‘Di Ba?
