Claim to Fame: ABS-CBN's rival network GMA7's talent search finalist who jumped over the fence.
The Princess of Charm
Megan Young'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 show's contestants seem to have jumped out from. Her talent and personality landed her in the show's top six. But despite her good finish, Megan'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-CBN's hit teleserye Kokey. And Megan is 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 she's not used to doing chores. During her Star Struck days she was even called a crybaby for being too sensitive.
