Andi Eigenmann is proud of Sid Luceros International Emmy nomination

Andi Eigenmann was so proud of her brother Sid Lucero for being nominated at the 38th International Emmy Awards that she even shed a few tears while talking about it during the press con of Your Song Presents Andi last October 7. "I am really proud of my kuya and everything that he has achieved. I wish I can be like him. It doesn'rsquo;t hit me when people talk about me in a bad way. Para sa akin talaga I am just proud to be part of this industry and I want to make a mark just like my family. Of course I called him right away when I found out tapos sinabi ko sa kanya love na love ko siya. Umaasa nga ako na sana makasama ko din siya sa Your Song," she began.

Sid is the first Filipino actor to be nominated for the Best Performance of an Actor category for his dramatic portrayal in Dahil May Isang Ikaw. He will be competing against renowned foreign actors such as Bob Hoskins and Leonardo Sbaraglia. But Andi claimed that Sid took the news as modestly as possible. "Nakakainis kasi 'lsquo;pag sinasabi ko sa kanya na, 'lsquo;Oo, sige na, magaling ka, idol kita. I want to work with you.'rsquo; Ang isasagot lang niya, 'lsquo;Oh my gosh! I can'rsquo;t reach you. You'rsquo;re a big star. You'rsquo;re Andi Eigenmann. Take it easy on me kasi ang galing galing mo!'rsquo; Parang niloloko lang niya ako kasi 'lsquo;pag magkakasama kami 'lsquo;di naman namin nakikita yung isa'rsquo;t isa as stars."

Andi shared though that Sid was equally proud of her success in the teleserye Agua Bendita and the fact that she'rsquo;s now one of the Kapamilya network'rsquo;s "It" girls. "Very supportive din si kuya sa akin. Lagi niya sinasabi sa akin, 'lsquo;Hindi mo na kailangan mag-indie [para makilala ka sa pag-arte]. Nagsimula ka na naman ng maganda. Kilala ka na naman ng mga tao and wala naman nagsasabi na hindi ka marunong umarte. E 'rsquo;di gawin mo indie-indiehan mo na lang yung mga palabas mo. So earn your title, earn your name. You don'rsquo;t have to follow our footsteps. Hindi mo na kailangan gawin yung mga ginagawa naming paghihirap. Swerte ka na.'rsquo;"

Although Sid is only her half-brother, Andi shared that they really have a strong bond and the same goes with their other siblings. "I'rsquo;m close to all my siblings equally. Pero yun nga parang nagtataka yung ibang tao na pare-pareho kami ng dad (Mark Gil) pero iba yung mom namin. Sinasabi ng mga tao, 'lsquo;Half sibling mo?'rsquo; or 'lsquo;Kilala mo ba?'rsquo; Kapag tinatanong kami nun 'lsquo;di naman namin dinadamdam kasi naiintindihan naman namin. Medyo masakit lang minsan kasi parang, 'lsquo;di niyo ba nakikita kung paano kami? I can say that we'rsquo;re probably even closer than whole siblings are."
