Young actress Alexa Ilacad is excited for her future projects following her split from her long-time love team partner Nash Aguas. She sees it as an opportunity to prove herself even more as an actress.
“I’m given more freedom and I’m given this bigger chance to prove myself as an actress,” she said as recently reported on “Umagang Kay Ganda.” “I’m not being boxed-in, like [with] only one love team - ‘yung kailangan sweet lang lagi, or always pa-cute.”
Alexa announced that she and Nash decided to part ways, breaking up their beloved tandem that fans fondly call “NLex.”

Despite what happened, Alexa is very thankful that their fans understand their decision and that they continue to support them as individuals.
“Instead of getting mad na, ‘Ah, naghiwalay,’ they understand us as individuals na may pinagdaanan kami na personal at nirirespeto nila ‘yun nang sobra,” she said.
In a recent interview with PEP, the young singer related how she and Nash came to their decision together.
“Para kasing nagkaroon kami ng personal issues, pero okay kami. Hindi kami magkaaway o magkagalit or anything. Naisip lang namin na ayaw naming manloko ng mga fans na kunwari super okay, smiling and all,” Alexa said. “Ayokong magpaasa, tapos one day biglang makikita na lang na wala na. Parang mas heartbreaking kasi ‘yun.”
She furthered, “Tsaka naisip namin, to be able to work professionally, mas masaya or mas madaling mag-work kapag 100 percent okay na lang. We chose it would be better for us also individually to try new things."

Instead of being saddened by their love team’s breakup, Alexa chooses to think positively, saying, “Ang dami na rin naming nagawa, naipakita. I think it's time for something new, it's time for a change."
Alexa recently graduated from Senior High School and is looking forward to starting the new school year this August as a first-year college student. She will be taking Business Administration, Major in Marketing as her course. She’s also currently working on her second album, which will feature songs she’s written herself.
Alexa and Nash’s last stint as a love team was the primetime series “The Good Son.”
