Sophie’s choice is showbiz

11/26/2018

DI tulad ng ibang mga young stars, hindi breadwinner si Sophie Albert.
Hindi niya kaila-ngang mag-artista para mabigyan ng magandang buhay ang kanyang pamilya.
She was born with a silver spoon, ika nga. You can ask her aunt Kris Aquino.
So her foray into the biz is more of “a want” than “a need.” It’s no “bread trip” for this sassy rich Asian.
Here’s Dollywood’s chat with Sophie:

How do you feel that your boyfriend Vin Abrenica is with ABS-CBN—a situation that has thwarted your onscreen team-up?
Working together was a great experience but I always knew that it wasn’t going to be forever. I am super proud of him and happy to see him doing his own thing well.
How do you and Vin make your relationship work?
We talk about the roles we get offered, and we also give each other honest feedback.
I don’t see the need to set limitations because we respect each other’s judgment.
I don’t want to be crippled by limitations or be the cause of a missed opportunity. We’re very supportive of each other’s careers.

Do you get jealous if Vin has kissing scenes?
It’s uncomfortable for me to watch. But it’s no issue. We know it comes with the job.

How do you feel about the good feedback you are getting?
It is a big bonus, so encouraging since it’s my first time to portray an off-beat role.

How would you handle it if you find out that your dad has two other families, like in your show?
It would be devastating because of the betrayal and the lies. But any family conflict must be resolved.
It won’t always be easy, but we should accept all the craziness and drama that come with each one.

What’s your most memorable scene in the series (Pamilya Roces) so far?
The first scene, which we shot in a hospital. The entire cast was present. It made me feel proud to be in the same room with the actors whom I look up to and to be directed by Joel Lamangan. It was a surreal moment.

What’s the best and toughest part of being a millennial?
Toughest part is that the Internet and social media are such a big part of our lifestyle. It’s easy to be judged based only on your social media presence. On the other hand, we are able to easily share more awareness about issues that are important to us, making people more involved or more accepting. I think millennials [belong to] a passionate generation and we are changing the world.
