Everyday Life of an Actress
Hi I’m Ayn, a London-based Filipino actress. I started my professional career in the Miss Saigon UK and International Tour 2017-2019 as part of the ensemble but also as an Understudy Kim.
I graduated from the Conservatory of Music, University of Santo Tomas, Philippines with a Bachelor’s degree in Musical Theatre. I started as a Classical voice major, without having any knowledge about Classical Music, and on my 3rd year I shifted to Musical Theatre. A few years later, I said goodbye to Manila and a very big "HELLO, LONDON!"
I was exposed to music at a very young age. My family has always given me the equipment that I needed to try and hone my skills as a singer, but, being an indecisive child that I was, I didn’t last very long with my voice and piano lessons. I’ve learned that I was a very curious person who gets bored easily.
I created this page because I want to share my experiences as one of the many Asian actors in the UK.
I would like to open up what it’s really like inside an actor’s life; what I do in between contracts and tips on how to stay sane!
