Empress Schuck's dream has finally come true: she's a small screen leading lady, on ABS-CBN's show, Rosalka (in which she stars opposite January 2010 Cosmo Online Hunk Felix Roco)!
She may be only 17, but it has in fact taken quite a while for her to get her much-awaited break. She's been in the biz for years, having received her first acting award at the tender age of 10. She's also proven her acting chops by playing roles in several episodes of Maalaala Mo Kaya. Now, it's finally her turn to be in the limelight.
This newly minted "Empress of Drama" is feeling a bit of the pressure now that she has to step up her game, but she doesn't want to think about it too much. "Masaya na rin po kasi parang na-realize ko na ito na 'to, malapit na. Pero hindi ko po nilalagay sa isip ko na gan'on nga po 'yung itatrato nila sa akin," she says humbly of the title her network has bestowed upon her. "Kasi po kapag iniisip ko nga po 'yon, baka kung anu-ano na ang pumasok sa isip ko na hindi maganda. Hangga't maaari po, TV artist pa rin po ako kaya hindi ko po masyadong pinapansin ang mga titulong ganyan. Okay lang naman po kahit wala o meron."
Having been in show business for quite some time now, it's quite expected that Empress would spoil herself a little every now and then with her hard-earned money. Cosmo.ph asked Empress' mom if she still asks her for money, and she answered, "Hindi na. Ako na nga ngayon ang driver niya, P.A. niya, lahat. Siya na ang gumagastos sa mga gusto niya."
We asked Empress if we could take a peek into her Coach purse and she was absolutely game, so click through to the Gallery below to see what's in her bag!
