Carla Humphries is happy with her wholesome image

After turning 20 years old this May, Carla Humphries is saying goodbye to her teen years. But although she’s been doing more mature roles lately, she says she’s not about to go sexy anytime soon. “I’m not going sexy or anything. I’m just trying to be a versatile actress. I’m embracing my womanhood so I can’t always do teenybopper roles. I‘m just challenging myself,” she explains.

After her role as Stella in Palos, she moves on to play Precious, one of Roxanne Guinoo’s friends in Ligaw na Bulaklak. “Palos was a good experience for me kasi it was my first time na sumabak sa action. It’s all new kasi when I was on the set, it’s the middle of the night tapos makakatulog ka, tapos biglang maririnig mo yung barilan. It was more mature role for me kasi I played a doctor there. Even though I entered [the series] in the latter part, I had a lot of fun,” she recalls.

Aside from studying Entrepreneurship at the Center for International Education (CIE), Carla is also busy brushing up on her French with language classes at the Alliance Francaise de Manille in Makati City.

Although admittedly single, Carla says she and Cover Boys member John James Uy have gone out a few times. “I really feel blessed that someone thinks of me as special and everything’s going okay. I guess we’re still getting to know each other. Even if he’s from the States, he’s making an extra effort to [court me] the Filipino way. My family thinks he’s a very nice guy. I wouldn’t say we’re dating, but I’m accepting suitors. I’m the kind of girl that won’t entertain more than one suitor at a time kasi I don’t like making paasa,” she stresses.
