Leila Alcasid to enter showbiz as an actress
Another Alcasid is so ready to make her way into show business.

Leila Alcasid, Ogie's daughter with his ex-wife Michelle van Eimeren, sat down for an interview on "Tonight With Boy Abunda" yesterday, March 24. There, the young Fil-Aussie, who migrated from Australia to the Philippines a mere two and a half months prior, announced that she fully intends to enter showbiz as an actress. 

She told host Boy Abunda, "I really like acting I've found. It's weird for me because I would have never thought of it before back in Australia, I was not into the arts in that kind of way. It was surprising for me, but then I came here, took workshops and stuff, and I really loved it."

Leila is of course, surrounded by legendary artists. Her father is an OPM legend and her stepmother Regine Velasquez-Alcasid is, well, THE Regine Velasquez-Alcasid. 

"We're very close," Leila said about Asia's Songbird, "She's a very generous person, a very understanding person."

She continued, "She's become obviously a mother figure to me since I've been here. She's helping me grow in this stage in my life. I love her very much."

Leila will debut this Sunday with an "ASAP" performance alongside her fellow "Your Face Sounds Familiar" judges' kids, Frankie Pangilinan and Kiana Valenciano.
