Loyal viewers of thedefunct GMA-7 teen-oriented show Click knew her as Belle. She starred alongside Richard Gutierrez, Angel Locsin, Chynna Ortaleza, Jolo Revilla, Karen delos Reyes, the late Miko Sotto, among others. However, Dyan Delfin's showbiz career did not bloom because she had to leavefor the States to get her green card.
The 24-year-old returning young actress said she had toleave right away during that time. "Magtu-twenty-one na po kasi ako noon, e. Dapat before my 21st birthday, nandoon na ako [sa U.S.]," Dyan explained during a pocket pressconprepared for her this afternoon, April 1, at the Baang Coffee Shop on Tomas Morato, Quezon City
When Dyan left, rumors spread that the main reason she wentto the U.S. was because she was pregnant with rumored boyfriend MarcNelson. But Dyan strongly denied thisreport.
"Hindi ako totoong nanganak," Dyan defended. "Kung totoong nabuntis ako, e, hindi sanaako pinaalis kasi yung medical before I left, ano, e, from head to toe. Kumbaga ganun ka-strict yun."
Dyan also made it clear that she and Marc never had arelationship. She clarified, "We datedbriefly. I never said or I will neversay that he was or he is my boyfriend. Kumbaga, parang we dated."
The young actress could not tell if Marc courted her, butshe insisted that they were just exclusively dating. For Dyan, "Mayroon kasi iba-ibang terms, e, so depende na langkung sino yung mag-interpret, e. Peroafter that, we became really, really good friends. Kaya up to now, magkausapkami."
Dyan also said that she understands why peoplethought she was pregnant. Sheexplained, "Kasi never na-clarify yung status naming dalawa [ni Marc]. On top of that, bigla akong umalis, 'taposwala man lang akong nabigay na explanation."
MISSING SHOWBIZ. Dyan admitted that she never reallywanted to leave then because she already got used to the lifestyle of localcelebrities.
In fact, according to her, when she found out that she hadto leave, "Hindi ko talaga gustong umalis noong time na yun. Parang ano, umiiyak pa 'ata ako noon. Sobrang emotional kasi nga, kumbaga, iiwanan ko lahat ngfriends ko, lahat ng mga trabaho ko. Kumbaga, nasanay na ako 'tapos biglang kailangan kong umalis nang walaakong magagawa so super sad nung umalis ako, nanghinayang din ako."
Dyan's eagerness to pursue her career in showbiz promptedthe young actress to leave her two jobs in the U.S.—a sales person and apart-time realtor—and try out showbiz again.
"Na-miss ko yung lifestyle," Dyan replied when asked what she likes about showbiz. "Gusto ko langyung trabaho, masaya. Kasi even if Ilike my work in the States, I enjoy and I get good money and everything, peroiba pa rin yung lifestyle dito, yung work dito. Siguro kasi ano, e, nasa loob ko na, ‘Ay, ito ang gusto konggawin."
She continued by comparing her corporate life abroadand here as a celebrity. For Dyan, itwas, "Sobrang iba! Kumbaga, gusto koyung mga times na nagpapa-manicure ako, nagpapa-foot spa ako and everything. Doon [sa Amerika], mas doble ang trabahongkailangan mong gawin kasi mas mahal doon at saka mas konti yung time na para saakin."
Although the returning actress does not have a definiteproject yet, for her comeback, Dyan's image will be changed from a teenybopper toa sexy actress.
Dyan told the media that she prefers to play a sexy role,"na mataray." Then, she added in jest,"Kasi parang ano, e, siguro mas natural na sa akin yun."
When PEP asked her how far would she go for that sexy role,Dyan replied, "Siguro ang kailangan ko pang pag-isipan is yung totally walaakong suot. Kumbaga, kung sa two-piecelang, okay lang ako. Pero yung bare,yun ang pag-iisipan ko pa, hindi ko pa 'ata kaya yun."
