Sobra ang paghanga ng 17-year-old newbie singer na si Sofia Romualdez sa Kapamilya young actress na si Liza Soberano.
Si Sofia ay anak ng dating aktres at ngayon ay mayor ng Tacloban City na si Cristina 'Kring Kring' Gonzales-Romualdez at ng dating mayor na si Alfred Romualdez.
Pahayag ni Sofia, “Liza Soberano, oh my God, she's so... yeah, I love Liza Soberano.
“I also like Yeng Constantino, I like her music.”
Hindi pa raw niya nakilala si Liza;
“I wanna meet her, I'll probably cry.”
Dugtong niya, “I also like Enrique [Gil] but I like Liza more.”
Ibig bang sabihin nito ay certified LizQuen fan si Sofia?
Nangingiting sabi niya, “Yeah, but I also love JaDine… oh my gosh!
“I also like KathNiel and AlDub, I love all of them.
“I don't know, I love them all, I don't hate anyone.
“I go to Internet, they're really famous, they go viral.”
Sino naman sa young actors ang kanyang crush?
Sagot ni Sofia, “James Reid, yeah, James Reid.”
Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at iba pang miyembro ng entertainment media si Sofia sa contract signing niya bilang pinakabagong miyembro ng Viva Artists Agency.
Ginanap ito sa Viva office, sa Tektite Building, Ortigas City, nitong Huwebes, August 25.
Limang taong managerial contract ang pinirmahan ni Sofia at ng kanyang ina, kasama ang kanyang manager na si Aster Amoyo, pati na rin ang Viva executives na sina Vic del Rosario at Veronique del Rosario.
PARENTAL SUPPORT. Ngayong isa na siyang certified Viva artist, ano ang pakiramdam?
Ani Sofia, “I'm so happy, I’m so grateful for this opportunity.
“I always wanted to do this, yeah, it's a dream come true for me.”
Malaki raw ang suporta ng mga magulang ni Sofia sa kanya.
Sabi niya, “They're also into music, they coach me sometimes.
“They also tell me to do my thing and to do it right, and always be humble.”
Sa showbiz, handa na ba siya?
Saad ng young singer, “No, I don't think so, I can't act, I'm so bad.
“Also with Tagalog, I have a hard time with Tagalog.
“Maybe, for now, yeah, I'll concentrate more on music, sa recording industry.”
Handa na ba ang kanyang dibdib sa bashers?
Sagot ni Sofia, “Yeah, I'm used to it, so... it doesn't matter, I don't know them.
“So why would I care and think about them. I just close my laptop, seriously, I just close it.”
