Maverick and Cassandra Legaspi
MANILA – Carmina Villarroel is allowing her twins, Cassandra and Maverick, to join show business but only during summer breaks.
While admitting she could not stop her children from joining showbiz if they really want to, Villarroel stressed that now is not yet the time for them to enter the industry full-time.
“You know, very vocal naman kasi ako na ayaw ko sana. Puwede lang ang commercials. Pero since it’s summer, okay lang naman mag-guesting, mga ganyan. Pero 'yung sasabihin mong artista talaga na full-time, parang teka muna,” she said.
Villarroel said she has repeatedly told her twins that they need to finish their studies first.
“Mag-aaral muna sila. But my kids kasi, they are also vocal na gusto din nila mag-artista. My daughter, si Cassy, lagi niya sinasabi ‘Mom, I want to be like you. When I grow up, I want to host, to act, to dance and sing.’ Mga ganun. Pero mag-aral muna sila,” she said.
While Cassandra and Maverick are now 13, Villarroel said the two will always remain her babies.
In a previous interview, Maverick and Cassandra expressed their desire to become action stars.
The twins, who were born in the United States in 2001, have multiple product endorsements with Villarroel and their father, Zoren Legaspi.
