I was a Child star in the Philippines

I enjoyed showing off my ability to memorize things quickly because it got me attention, and I liked attention – and the director was pleased that I followed directions and learned lines so fast, so he cast me. The next couple of years were a bit of a blur – there were articles in magazines about me and variety show appearances, along with small parts in movies. The whole thing was fun at first, but then the work ended up being so boring – I said variations of the same cute lines over and over again, got into variations of the same trouble with my TV dad. It wasn’t a satisfying kind of attention to be recognized just for repeating lines and being a cute kid.
