Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2 Housemate #2: Megan Young
17-year-old Megan “Princess of Charm” Young made her initial entry into showbusiness through “Starstruck”, a teenage reality TV talent contest in GMA-7. She however is now more familiar to viewers as “Shane” a pretty social worker who was, until recently, a character on ABS-CBN’s hit science fiction fantasy series “Kokey”.
Young earned her nickname because she “lives the life of a princess” who doesn’ t do house chores. She admitted that she’s not even used to cleaning and tidying up her own room–earning scoldings from her mother. She prepared for the PBB House by training herself to sleep alone, having been used to sharing a bedroom with her sister.
Young is very excited about her stay inside the PBB House, particularly because she heard that her big crush would also be in the house. The identity of her crush has not been revealed — yet.
Megan Youngâ€™s first big showbiz break was with the talent reality search Star Struck. With her statuesque height and Fil-Am features, Megan perfectly fits the mestiza master mold that the showâ€™s contestants seem to have jumped out from. Her talent and personality landed her in the showâ€™s top six. But despite her good finish, Meganâ€™s acting career never took off. Projects came to her in trickles. Often she would be typecast as the antagonist, the bitch, the bad girl — something she found unpleasant.
She soon moved to ABS-CBN following her sister, Lauren, who was part of Star Magicâ€™s Star Circle 13. Megan first appeared on the show Abt Ur Luv together with Victor Basa. Just recently, she acquired the role of Shane in ABS-CBNâ€™s hit teleserye Kokey. And Meganâ€™s happy she plays the nice girl this time.
Megan still has room to grow and she knows that. She is like princess to her family and sheâ€™s not used to doing chores. During her Star Struck days she was even called a crybaby for being too sensitive.
