Yam Concepcion is back on the TWBA hot seat to clarify the biggest misconceptions about her and to talk about her projects. The first assumption on the list is her alleged penchant for drinking while on taping, which the Kapamilya actress denied. She isn’t an alcoholic, either. But just to celebrate the new year and the good things coming her way, Yam brought a bottle of champagne and invited veteran host Boy Abunda to a toast.
Talking about her life before showbiz, Yam revealed that she once juggled teaching arts to little school kids and working as a band drummer. She was then tapped to star in a music video of OPM band Mayonnaise, and the rest, as they say, is history. Yam impressed Tito Boy and the audience with her surprising drumming skills.
Rumor has it that she and long-time boyfriend Miguel Cuunjieng are engaged. Yam denied the issue. Although, she is admittedly looking forward to it and she is ready to say ‘yes’ once Miguel decides to pop the question. And when that happens, Yam promised to be back on the TWBA set to celebrate.
The multi-talented star is offering her fans a triple treat. First, she takes on the lead role in the upcoming horror film “Nightshift”. She plays as Jessie, a med-tech student who will get stranded inside a morgue. In real life, Yam is fond of watching scary movies as long as someone would keep her company.
Apart from “Nightshift”, she is also starring in the Kapamilya series Love Thy Woman. Yam shared that she has grown closer to her Love Thy Woman co-stars like Kim Chiu, Chie Filomeno, and Mikee Agustin. And she gets along well with everyone on the set.
Lastly, her digital series with Joseph Marco entitled “Uncoupling” is still streaming on iWant.
To end the interview, Yam played the “Wet, Wild or Sweet” game. She described her kissing scenes with Ahron Villaflor and Ejay Falcon as ‘wet’; with Jericho Rosales, Paolo Ballesteros, and Xian Lim as ‘sweet’. Her on-screen kisses with Joseph Marco were rated as ‘wet and sweet’. Yam mentioned the three categories to describe her kissing scenes with Sam Milby. Meanwhile, she opted for the word ‘everlasting’ when photo of boyfriend, Miguel Cuunjieng was shown on the LED screen.
