Cassy Legaspi, the daughter of Carmina Villarroel and Zoren Legaspi, is finally making her teleserye debut two years after she entered show business.
She will be part of the upcoming Kapuso teleserye First Yaya, which is top-billed by Sanya Lopez and Gabby Concepcion.
Gabby will play the President of the Philippines, and Cassy will be the "First Daughter" in the story.
Currently, the cast members of First Yaya are preparing for their one-month lock-in taping.
As a safety precaution against COVID-19, the project's staff and cast members will stay in one location for days during each taping cycle, which means they can't go home.
In PEP Exclusives interview with Cassy and her twin brother, Mavy, on November 18, she said it will be the first time she will be away from her family for a period of time.
But, totoo ba, Cassy plans to bring her own washing machine to the taping venue?
Cassy and Mavy both laughed.
Cassy then answered, “Kasi may nakita ako online, well, actually my mom, na portable washing machine. Maliit siya.
“So, sabi ko, ‘E, di ano iyong katerno ng washing machine? E, di iyong dryer!’
“Sabi ko, ‘Mommy, let’s buy a portable dryer!’ Sabi niya, ‘Oh, sige!’
“It’s so small. May dryer din na maliit, pero I think it takes one hour, two hours [to dry].
“My gosh, ang saya! Sabi ko, iyan iyong number one ko sa list.”
And why is that?
Cassy explained, “Typically, for a teenager, what is the one thing that you need when you’re bringing something, like for a lock-in?
"Di ba, cellphone, make-up? Si Cassy, washing machine!
“Gusto ko talaga noong washing machine. Super easy lang [to use]. Kasya mga five clothes!”
First Yaya is originally slated to start shooting and air early this year, with Marian Rivera in the title role. Cassy is also part of the original cast.
However, the pandemic happened and production schedules were delayed.
First Yaya is slated for 2021 target release on GMA Telebabad.
