Ashley Ortega is happy to have this big break in showbiz
Kapuso actress Ashley Ortega won’t let her recent breakup with Lucena City Mayor Mark Alcala affect the biggest showbiz break she has so far.
Reports surfaced early this month that the actress already ended her relationship with her former boyfriend. Currently, the actress is promoting her new series with actor-director Xian Lim.
It is a sports drama Hearts On Ice. This will showcase Ashley’s athletic side as she has already competed in ice skating competitions in the past.
For her 10 years in the entertainment industry, this is the most significant opportunity that Ashley Ortega was able to have. Before, she would just supporting roles and one-episode projects.
However, that did not hinder her to showcase her talent and do her best in whatever project was given to her, based on the article in Inquirer. This year, the long wait is over for Ashley as she is now the lead actress in the series, the leading lady of Xian.
“I would say that this is my greatest achievement as an actress so far… It’s so overwhelming. The idea of me being a leading lady has yet to sink in. Our makeup artists told me, ‘Anak, bida ka na.’ It feels so new,” she shared.
What makes Ashley Ortega extra happy is the fact that the series is a fusion of her two favorite things – acting and skating. Although the theme of the series is light, the actress said that this is still physically draining because it involves a sport.
The shooting started in November last year and two months before that, Ashley’s breakup with Mayor Alcala happened. They both became busy with their respective careers and they made them drift apart from each other.
However, despite handling a recent breakup, Ashley Ortega is determined to focus on her new project and give her all for this great opportunity.
“I poured it all out in the months leading to filming. I told myself that I had to focus. So iniyak ko na lahat and allowed myself to recover from the breakup. I didn’t want that burden while working on the show. I channeled all my energy to training. This show has my full focus,” the Kapuso star said.
