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.
