Sam Cruz grew up being known as the daughter of Sunshine Cruz and Cesar Montano. But the time has finally come for her to make a name for herself and with that pretty face and amazing voice, we say she definitely has what it takes.
For a 16-year-old, the industry could seem very inviting with its all glitz and glamour. But as the daughter of two showbiz veterans, stepping into it also means a ton of pressure.
“My mom is this great artist and I really look up to her and I wanna make her proud, so sometimes it’s scary. But it’s also very exciting as well, because I get to learn so much things and meet new people,” said Sam on “I Feel U” last Sunday, January 31.
Just recently, Sam was launched as part of a musical group composed of new gen performers on “ASAP Natin ‘To” and she feels honored to be able to showcase her singing on such a huge platform. But soon, Sam said she also wants to dip her toes into acting as well.
Aside from her mom, one of the actresses Sam looks up to is Liza Soberano, whom she’s really been a fan of. “She’s one of the celebrities I look up to. I really love how she acts, she’s such a great actress.”
As for the guys she wants to work with, Sam confessed that she also admires Jameson Blake. “Ever since naman po, even when I haven’t met him on ‘ASAP’, I’ve had a crush on him na. He’s such a great actor.”
It’s only natural for a girl like Sam to have crushes, but that’s all she can have for now, according to her mom. Sam explained, “Pwede naman ‘yung mga crushes, pero bawal pa po ‘yung boyfriend. Not allowed yet."
But when the right time comes, Sunshine has already asked her daughter to look out for these things: “She says to find a guy that really treats you like a queen, that loves you for who you are and that will treat you right as a best friend as well and as a partner,” said Sam.
In a video message aired on the episode, Sunshine shared the other life tips she has given Sam. “Gawin mo lang ang dapat. Lagi ka lang makikinig sa akin, because, of course, as a mom, I always want what’s best for you. Napakabago mo pa lang sa showbiz, pero nakiktia ko na napakasipag mo and I am very proud of you,” said the “Bagong Umaga” actress.
