Rachelle Ann Go, who will play the role of Gigi Van Tranh in the 2014 West End production of “Miss Saigon,” revealed that rumored beau Slater Young will follow her in London to be able to watch the show.
“Sabi niya pupunta daw siya. Tingnan natin kung totoo, ‘no!”
Rachelle had a press conference for “Miss Rachelle: The Send-Off Concert” at the Magellan Function Room of the Discovery Suites in Pasig City.
Rachelle and Slater admitted to dating this January. Slater is the winner of ABS-CBN’s “Pinoy Big Brother: Unlimited.” He also came from a well-off and prominent family in Cebu City.
In an earlier interview, Rachelle said they are okay and are very happy spending time together. She and Slater are both under the Cornerstone Talent Management.
Speaking about “Miss Saigon,” is Rachelle ready to go sexy already since her character is one of the prostitutes in the play? Rachelle said the production didn’t tell her anything about it.
Isay Alvarez, the original Gigi of the 1989 production of “Miss Saigon,” went sexy as well when she was the one who did the show.
Gigi, she said, originally wore a two-piece bikini, and that’s why she has to prepare for the role.
Rachelle really doesn’t go to the gym regularly, but because she has to prepare for the role, she now pushes herself to do exercises and be active physically.
“Pero for this role, kailangan ready ako, prepared ako physically.”
As for Rachelle, she wants to enroll in dance and jazz classes before leaving for London, so she can be ready for the role. The singer will also have a send-off concert for her 10th anniversary before she leaves for the United Kingdom.
When she arrives in London on March 10, she will begin rehearsals immediately. Rachelle’s role as Gigi will be full of dance scenes, so she has to prepare for it too.
