Romy Monteiro wants, just not in musicals play

If the cloth at the end of June falls for The Bodyguard chooses lead actress Romy Monteiro for a career outside the musicalwereld. “I don’t think I tentatively return in a musical.”

After two years The Bodyguard I think it’s good to challenge myself to develop,” says the 24-year-old Monteiro. She wants to develop further as a singer, presenter and actress.

She calls the role of Rachel Marron “the most beautiful that I have ever had”. But she is not going in the summer auditions to do for a Dutch musical production. Only for a possible return of the musical Aida would be the daughter of Antje Monteiro make an exception. “Then I’m going to audition for the role of Aida. I saw my mother in Aida play when I was a girl of ten was,” she says.

“It does not mean that I am not in the theater wants to be, but I’d like to continue to develop in the field of singing, acting and presenting,” says the musical star, who, in 2014, awareness-raising with her participation in The Voice. “A role in a Dutch komedieserie or a romantic comedy film seems to me also a lot of fun.”


From Saturday night presents Romy Monteiro for AVROTROS twelve episodes of the familiespelshow My father is the best. “My first solo show and studioprogramma”, says Romy. “Children are unpredictable and fun to work with, that makes it exciting. “Children respond very differently to the game, about whether or not to continue.”

The presentation was made in the past in the hands of Monique Smit and Yolanthe Sneijder-Cabau. “With my presentatiecoach, I’ve looked to my predecessors, who each in their own way did. Monique did on his Dutch, nice and sweet. She gave me a very sweet message sent to me success is to be desired. Yolanthe presented with a bit more glamour, super sexy. As a presenter, you play no role, as in a musical, but I’m especially yourself. I am very critical of myself and it is my first presentatieklus, so that makes it very exciting.”

Record deal

My father is the best is Saturday night start with well-known fathers such as Winston Post, Manuel Venderbos, Koert-Jan de Bruijn and Frans Duijts with their offspring. “I am very fond of children. I’m much in the laugh shot during the recordings. I had a real good time and I hope that you see on television,” says Monteiro.

In september drew Monteiro a record deal with 8Ball Music so that they also as a singer can develop. In april she hopes to be her first single. “All the opportunities I get, I would like to tackle,” she says. “Sing I prefer. And the allerleukst is singing their own repertoire. In a musical you’re still stuck to a role. With singing, I can be myself, just as at present actually.”
