Show business might be in her blood, but Lala Vinzon went through auditions and rejections just like any other rookie in the industry. Her dad is veteran action star Roi Vinzon and his number one advice is to go through the process, “hanggang ngayon ‘yon pa rin ‘yong advice ni papa,” she said on Tonight with Boy Abunda.
Lala then talked about how this experience helps one appreciate work more and to keep from being blinded by fame, “Kasi ‘pag dating ng panahon, ‘pag pinaghirapan mo ‘yong isang bagay, hindi mo siya basta-bastang bibitawan.”
Sure enough, the young singer has been steadily proving her own talents on the ASAP stage. She even booked a guest role on top rating primetime cop series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano as Lorie. Recently, however, her name has been making rounds on the internet because of her features.
It doesn’t take an expert to notice the startling similarities between former The Voice Teens Philippines finalist and It’s Showtime’s Tawag Ng Tanghalan season two finalist Arabelle Dela Cruz. From their sweet smile and the slope of their nose to even the V shape of their face and brown shade of their hair, it really is like seeing doubles.
Turns out even Lala was fooled by the uncanny resemblance. The singer-actress shared that she first heard of Arabelle when people started asking on Twitter why she joined TNT2. “Akala ko noong una, first glimpse, akala ko ako talaga ‘yon,” she admitted. After a while, however, she did notice distinct differences between them especially in terms of performing.
They have not met in person but Lala was all praises for her look alike, “napakagaling po ni Arabelle, and she deserves the spot.”
