Cassy and Mavy Legaspi on signing up with GMA-7: "GMA is home."



Twins Cassy and Mavy Legaspi said that it wasn't a hard decision for them to start their careers with GMA-7.

The kids of showbiz couple Carmina Villarroel and Zoren Legaspi officially joined show business by signing up with GMA Artist Center in July 2018.

In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other GMA-7 reporters during the October 2 press conference of Studio 7, the Legaspi twins were asked why they decided to sign up as Kapuso stars.

Cassy said, "Because GMA was part of our discussion din. I think GMA is homey."

Mavy elaborated, "Like what I said when we had our contract signing, this is home na.

"Growing up, I was always here na. After school I go here and watch my mom.

"So who wouldn't want to be at home, right? It always feels great to come back home and here we are!"

Cassy added, "Technically, we grew up here because we always visit sets."

Mavy also pointed out, "It wasn't like a hard decision, honestly. It was like, GMA was the one who signed us, yes!"

Cassy and Mavy are part of the upcoming Sunday prime-time variety program Studio 7, which will air its pilot episode on October 14.

LEGASPI TWINS ON SIS AND MULAWIN

PEP.ph then asked the Legaspi twins what they remember about visiting the Kapuso network when they were young.

Mavy recalled, "The first time ever was my mom's SiS days and I don't know, actually our dad picked us up from school one day then we went here.

Cassy, on the other hand, remembered visiting the set of GMA telefantasyas Mulawin and Darna, which were big hits in the past.

"Ako naman, I remember GMA through the sets, for example, yung dad namin, the set of Mulawin, kasi super... how old are we, four or five?

"Sobrang natakot ako because his eyes were yellow tapos nabigla ako sa set na parang ang daming may feather feather!

"And then next naman, my mom's set sa Darna, I think she was the kontrabida na naka-volcano [costume]. Tinatanong ko, bakit may volcano diyan? I was always amazed by the set of GMA, that's one of the memories I remember."

Cassy also recalled reading the scripts of her mom in her previous shows, which kind of influenced her to join showbiz.

"Ako kasi I took inspiration when we... sometimes, we visit mom's set in her previous teleseryes and from there, I think some of the influence came from there.

"Because I watch how it works kung may taping, kung may live show, and sometimes I read their scripts to them for fun na parang nagmo-monologue ako na parang kontrabida ako!"

Does this mean that they are ready to take on acting projects?

With a laugh, Cassy answered, "Huwag naman, wait lang, huwag muna, let's take it slowly."

Mavy also shared their experience during their Pepito Manaloto guest appearance which was aired a few weeks before the press conference.

"Actually, we guested sa Pepito and it was really a fun experience kahit di masyadong full-blown and I think it shocked a lot of people, I've been reading a lot of comments lately.

"And when I get to school they were like, 'You were on TV!' It was such a new feeling even though we've been in commercials and I enjoyed it."

According to the twins, they are set to do more projects with GMA-7 this year but they cannot divulge details about them yet.
