CASSY Legaspi and JD Domagoso appeared in their first teleserye in “First Yaya”. Now, they are both back in the show’s sequel, “First Lady”. So how do they feel about it?
“Siempre, pareho kaming tuwang-tuwa na magkakaroon kami ng season 2,” says Cassy. “We had a great time with all our co-stars sa lock in taping ng ‘First Yaya’ at para na kaming family. So now, we are so happy to be reunited with them and also with each other again playing our characters, Nina and Jonas.”
She’s also grateful working again with their other co-stars. “I really feel so blessed na makasama uli si Tito Gabby Concepcion as our dad President Glenn Acosta, at sina Clarence Delgado as my brother Nathan and Patricia Coma as my sister Nicole. And of course, Ate Sanya Lopez na yaya namin noon but now, stepmother na namin who we call mommy. We get to know more of her intimately and her loving side. Masaya kami lagi sa lock-in taping namin. The first leg was in Thunderbird La Union and now, for the second leg, sa Rizal naman.”
How is she and JD in Season Two? “Kami pa rin yung young love interest sa show. We’ll be closer now than in season one and Nina will consider kung alin ba ang mas priority niya, ang family niya or si Jonas. Napansin ko lang, JD has improved so much compared to his performance in ‘First Yaya’. I tell him nga na mas at home na siya ngayon sa role niya as Jonas. Parang in some ways nga, si Jonas na siya when he’s in front of the camera and I tell him this, na mas nag-mature na ang acting niya.”
And what can JD say about this? “I want to thank Cassy for her encouraging words,” he says. “I’m really so thankful na nabigyan kami ng chance na magkatrabaho uli rito sa Season Two. I consider it a blessing na makasama siya uli kasi we really enjoyed naman each other’s company sa season one. But I really had fun with all our co-stars in ‘First Yaya’ and it’s even more so enjoyable in ‘First Lady’.”
In their roles as Nina and Jonas, they will touch on some of the common issues that young people go through when it comes to teenage relationships. “Abangan nyo dahil maraming plot developments are ‘First Lady’ na gugulat sa inyo at tiyak na magugustuhan nyo,” adds Cassy.
Right after their taping for ‘First Lady’, JD will focus on shooting a new film, “Boy in the Dark”. “I play a blind young man and I find it very challenging,” he says. “It made me realize na napakahirap pala talaga to be a PWD or person with disability.”
