Isa sa pangunahing bilin ng kanilang mga magulang sa kambal na sina Mavy Legaspi at Cassy Legaspi ay huwag magpaka-showbiz sa pagsagot ng mga tanong.

Sina Mavy at Cassy, 20 anyos, ay anak nina Carmina Villarroel at Zoren Legaspi.

Parehong Kapuso artists ang magkapatid.

Sa exclusive interview ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at sister sites nito noong Biyernes, August 13, walang inurungang tanong sina Mavy at Cassy.

Ang magpakatotoo raw ang isa sa mga bilin ng kanilang magulang kapag sumasagot sila ng mga tanong mula sa media.

Sabi ni Mavy, “’Yung number one talaga is yung…"

Dugtong ni Cassy, “’Wag kang mag-showbiz answer.”

Tinatawag na “showbiz” ang sagot kapag ang artista ay nagbigay ng sagot na gustong marinig ng publiko, at hindi ang totoong nararamdaman nito.

Ayon kay Mavy, sa una ay maaaring maitawid ang pagiging “showbiz,” pero darating ang araw na lilitaw ang tunay na pagkatao ng isang artista.

“In a short time, magagawa ‘yon. But then, in the long run, that’s not you at the end of the day.

“Starting now, at this point, answer it how you feel. Kung ano ka ba talaga.

"Because in the long run, that’s what’s gonna be consistent, not these made-up answers," saad niya.

Mas mabuti raw kung maaga pa lang ay magpakatotoo na.

Ani Mavy, “Parang, ‘Shucks, shucks, shucks! Ginamit ko na ‘yon, e,’ but if you can answer as brutally honest…

“And, again, entering the showbiz... we just want to [show the real] Mavy and Cassy Legaspi on-cam, off-cam.”

CASSY AND MAVY ON BEING TRUE TO THEMSELVES

Tanggap daw ng kambal kung hindi man paboran ng iba ang pagpapakatotoo nila.

Paliwanag ni Mavy, “What you see is what you get. It’s a world where imperfections and perfection exist.

“So, imperfection is, what you see is what you get.

“If you don’t like it, okay, sorry, but ganito kami.

“Again, when answering questions, not everyone is gonna have the same opinions as you.

“And that goes for everyone—showbiz people or non-showbiz people. The same thing…

“When you make kuwento and told your friends, some people may not like your kuwento. Some people don’t like how you handle things.”

Malaking tulong daw sa kambal na bago sila pumasok sa showbiz, naranasan nila ang mamuhay nang normal.

Sabi ni Mavy, “I guess we had influence also kasi we had this life na outside the industry, just being high school students.

“Going out with friends, going through all these problems in high school.

“It made us learn how to be more genuine in answering these questions.

“Hindi kami natatakot na kung paano yung showbiz at hindi showbiz.

“But if you put them together, it’s just real life. It comes full circle.”

Aminado si Mavy na hindi naman lahat ng ibinabatong tanong sa kanila ay madali, pero mas gusto niyang maging totoo kesa maging showbiz.

“I don’t wanna say it’s easy answering questions, but [I'd] rather be genuine than not.

“So, that’s how it becomes easier because you’re not trying to put this wall or not trying to make this created answer na automatic, but you just say what you wanna say.”

Dagdag naman ni Cassy, “To me, personally, it’s hard to fake it.

“I think anyone can see right through me if my answer is fake o kung totoo.

“I think, if you just start being honest as early as possible, parang you get to show the world who you really are, ‘Wala, guys, ganito ako, e.’”

Sinegudahan ni Mavy na ito raw ang nangyayari kapag kalaunan ay nagugulat ang mga tao kung nalaman na nila ang tunay na pagkatao ng isang artista.

Saad niya, “One day, magugulat, ‘Ay, ganun pala siya!’ the honest, real self.

“That’s why nagiging problema din yun sa iba. Parang bigla, out of nowhere, ‘Ay, ganun pala sila.’

“Pero at the end of the day, that’s their real self pala.

“But if as early as now, you’re already yourself, then in the future there is no problem anymore, because they already know who you are.

“Like what my parents said, you establish what you are.”

Katatapos lamang gawin ni Cassy ang Kapuso prime-time series na My First Yaya, na pinagbidahan nina Gabby Concepcion at Sanya Lopez.

Makakasama naman si Mavy sa upcoming series na I Left My Heart in Sorsogon na pinangungunahan nina Heart Evangelista, Richard Yap, at Paolo Contis.
