Amy’s Throw­back

YES! (Philippines) - - Stargazing -

Amy Aus­tria was in throw­back mode when she posted this photo of her­self on Face­book in early Fe­bru­ary.

In her FB cap­tion, she says she thinks that her photo may have been taken in 1983, while she was un­der­go­ing an act­ing work­shop un­der the Ac­tors Work­shop Foun­da­tion. Also in her cap­tion, she says that she was made to por­tray a “zero state” of be­ing and that this was her ren­di­tion of it.

Amy, who was born on De­cem­ber 13, 1961, was there­fore only 22 years old in this photo. Which means that since this photo was taken, she hasn’t stopped hon­ing her act­ing skills, even if she has al­ready won two best ac­tress tro­phies—from the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences (FAMAS) and the Metro Manila Film Fes­ti­val (MMFF)—for her role in Mar­ilou Diaz-Abaya’s 1980 film Bru­tal.

Wow! Over­con­fi­dent young stars should pick up les­sons from her, pronto.
