KC Concepcion determined to become a more serious Actress
More than two months ago, KC Concepcion left for New York to pursue acting classes and improve her craft. Now that she’s home on a study break, she’s not wasting time and has jumped head-on to work.
‘Back in the Philippines to shoot some commercials, thanks for all your support & love always!!! I miss being on set & just werkkin all week long… Haha. So back to work it is!’
Early this year, KC tweeted that she planned to study abroad for the first quarter after realising she still had ‘so much more’ to learn in the industry. She was last seen starring in the hit teleserye ‘Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala’ and the award-winning film ‘Boy Golden: Shoot-to-Kill.’
Since January, KC had been taking advanced acting courses in an undisclosed school in the Big Apple. She revealed in an interview yesterday in Aquino and Abunda that going to New York for acting classes had been her plan for the past three years.
As the daughter of highly acclaimed thespians Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion, KC has a lot to prove in the world of showbiz. This is why, despite already showcasing promising talent on TV and film, she didn’t bat an eye and recognised her need to hone her skill more thoroughly.
Her recent Best Actress win in the 2014 PMPC Star Awards for Movies, however, shows that KC is heading in the right direction, career-wise. This is her first acting award, and it is important to note that Star Awards is one of the major award-giving bodies for film in the country.
KC is taking the award as an added challenge to her craft. She said ‘After [the award], kailangan ko na talagang pagbutihin itong pag-arte.’
‘Finished tonight’s 3-hour long acting class. Thank u God for this chance to take classes in the US. TGIF!!!’
One of the first things KC also did since arriving in the country last Saturday was renew her term as National Ambassador Against Hunger for the UN World Food Programme.
Fans and friends are happy and have welcomed the X-Factor host home. While she’s here, fans can expect to see more of KC in small projects and answering some tough questions about her career and her blooming love life with rumoured squeeze Paulo Avelino.
