MANILA – Lorin Gutierrez is following the footsteps of her mom, actress Ruffa Gutierrez.

The 17-year-old Gutierrez was announced as the newest addition to the Viva Artists Agency family on Tuesday and a solo virtual press conference was also held to welcome her.

“Wala naman akong masyadong takot. If anything, I just feel more excited. I can’t wait to start this new journey, this new chapter of my life,” she said about making this huge step.

“Parang buong buhay ko I’ve been waiting when’s the right time to finally do this and finally follow in my family’s footsteps. And now that I’m almost 18, it just feels right. It feels like I’m comfortable finally.”

While she hails from a family of actors and actresses, Gutierrez insisted that she was never dictated by anyone with regard to her decision.

“Never naman sinabi ng family ko na kailangan mong gawin ito ngayon. They never tried to rush me. They never tried to pressure me. Everything was on my own pace and now I’m ready. I’m excited. Wala naman akong takot or nervousness. I’m just really excited to put all my effort into this and see what this new chapter of my life takes me,” she said.
