Shy Carlos and Mark Neumann Leads The Cast of 2016's Tasya Fantasya

Shy Carlos and Mark Neumann is the new love team to be launch in the remake of Carlo J. Caparas' Tasya Fantasya.
Pulling away from the ranks of today’s most promising young stars is Shy Carlos.

The 20-year old Swiss-Filipino actress from the Viva Artists Agency stable gets the biggest break of her career as she plays the title role in the iconic “Tasya Fantasya” series, which premieres on TV5 next month.
 “Tasya Fantasya” is an original series created by Carlo J. Caparas about a kindhearted helper who dreams about her prince charming. Tasya later finds out that her faith is entangled with that of a magical tree that will lead her to a series of colorful adventures.

Viva’s Veronique del Rosario says, “The role of Tasya seems to be cut out for Shy. The character exudes what we see in her – kind, imaginative, youthful, wholesome and pleasant. We didn’t have any doubts that Shy will be able to give justice to this project.”

Playing Shy’s leading man in the series is Mark Neumann, who, interestingly is half-Norwegian. Shy was born to a Filipino mother and Swiss father.

Shy’s “Tasya Fantasya” will be the third rebirth of the iconic komiks character played by Kris Aquino in 1994 and by Yasmien Kurdi in 2008.

When asked how she will tackle the role, Shy says, “I haven’t seen the movie and the GMA show. I hope to play the role in a different way.”

Shy, who did around 20 commercials when she was a child, appeared in shows from the top three networks before clinching a place in the all-female group Pop Girls along with Nadine Lustre. She also had a stint in the Star Cinema movie “Hopeless Romantic” where she realized that comedy is a genre that she is very comfortable with. Shy is also part of Viva Films’ “Lumayo Ka Nga Sa Akin” currently in theaters, where she co-stars with Maricel Soriano and Herbert Bautista.

Unlike most young show biz stars today, Shy puts a premium on education. While working as VJ for the music channel MTV Pinoy, the young actress remained in school as a junior student at College of St. Benilde taking up Consular & Diplomatic Affairs.

She will be the first to tell you that she is not what her name suggests. The engaging and outgoing young head-turner says, “I am not shy. Otherwise I will not be in show biz, right?”

From the looks of it, 2016 is going to be the year Shy’s star reaches greater heights. Just wait and see.

Tasya Fantasya also stars Freddie Webb, Ara Mina, John Lapus, Candy Pangilinan, Giselle Sanchez, AJ Muhlach, Kim Molina, Jasmine Hollingworth, Malak So, Arvic Rivero, Donalyn Bartolome and many more.

Tasya Fantasya will premiere on Feb 6 Saturday night at TV5.
