MANILA - Young actress Meg Imperial admits that she wants to improve her acting by learning from her idol, TV veteran and "The Legal Wife" star Angel Locsin.

“Bata pa lang ako girl crush ko na siya so fan na fan ako niya. Gusto ko siyang makatrabaho. I think marami akong matutunan sa kanya,” she said in an interview with entertainment website Push.com.

Imperial, who stars in the afternoon soap "Moon of Desire," praised Locsin's performance as Monica, which has been a consistent trending topic among social media sites for the past week.

“Ang ganda, ang galing nilang lahat at ang story catchy na ngayon, ‘yung tipong hindi mo na papalampasin ang mga eksena,” she said.

Asked about she keeps her figure for a show like Moon of Desire, the sexy actress revealed: “Mahirap kasi pag-taping maraming pagkain, napapakain ka, siguro with the support of the cast namo-motivate ka to go to the gym, so tulong-tulong lang dito sa set and siyempre balance mo sa sarili mo, proper motivation sa food."

Imperial, also in the interview, expressed gratitude to the viewers of the show. She added that it takes some pressure off her as a first-time actress.

“Actually at first siyempre for me kasi first soap ko ‘to, hindi na ako nag-expect ng too much kasi hindi naman ako kilala ng tao pa naman. Happy naman ako na ganito ‘yung nangyari. Hopefully magustuhan pa nila ‘yung story," she said.
