Cassy and Joaquin’s many firsts in ‘First Yaya’
Smiling from ear to ear, Cassy further explained what her co-star was talking about. “Frenemies is the best word to describe Niña and Jonas’ relationship in the series. Viewers will easily see that once the teleserye starts airing,” said Cassy who plays Niña, the eldest daughter in the first family.
The teen stars shared that being part of First Yaya gave them a different experience. Though they’ve already been part of numerous television programs and productions, taping for a series for the first time somehow introduced them to an entirely different world. “Nanibago ako because of the productions I’m used to doing like All Out Sundays and Studio 7. But doing a teleserye is more fun especially now that we are doing lock-in taping, we get to bond, kwentuhan while waiting for our turn to shoot. And it allows me to learn techniques and get tips from our senior cast members,” Joaquin admitted.
For Cassy, on the other hand, doing a teleserye for the first time is tiring but she enjoys “every bit of it.” “Growing up nasanay na ako sa mag-commercials and variety shows. Now coming into this, I thought it’s going to be the same but it’s not. It’s not the same at all. I realized that it’s tiring and very challenging. But it’s fun parang gusto ko yung pagod ko. I guess because everyone is there and I’m always with JD. We’re always together,” Cassy ended.
