If you’re dreading another year of getting older, Tony award winning actress Lea Salonga has a message for you: life gets better with age.
The international actress and performer has only gotten better ever since she was chosen to top-bill the musical play Miss Saigon in West End London in 1989 (and let it be said that anyone who has followed her career before that knew she was bound for greater things). The ageless beauty, now 45 years old, entered 2016 with the Broadway play Allegiance, returned to American TV with a guest stint in the popular television series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, got her first win on The Voice Kids PH after three seasons, and six years after her last performance on a Philippine stage, she performed for her musical-loving Pinoy fans in Fun Home, which ended last November. And the woman has been booked for February next year for a series of concerts in Australia.
In her three decades in the business, Lea is not showing any signs of slowing down. On the contrary, she intends to keep striking while the iron remains hot. “To be 45 and still find things that I can get better at is really cool. If I lose that, I might be in trouble,” she related.
