Erich Gonzales, Andi Eigenmann, and Empress retrace their journey to stardom


Erich Gonzales, Andi Eigenmann, and Empress are no doubt some of the hottest teleserye princesses of ABS-CBN today. All three didn’t expect their sudden rise to stardom, but they readily took on the challenge when they were given a lead role in their respective soaps.

First was Erich who was hailed as 2009’s breakthrough star with Katorse and later on, Tanging Yaman. Looking back, the pretty Davaoeña was very happy that she managed to transform from being known for her teenybopper roles to a certified dramatic actress. “Talagang super saya ko kasi alam naman nating lahat na ang tagal ko naghintay. Tsaka lagi ko naman sinasabi na in everything that I do, gagawin ko talaga yung best ko kasi itong opportunity na ito comes once in a lifetime. So sobrang galing lang talaga na nabigyan ako ng big break ng ABS-CBN. I realized that everything has its own time kahit hindi mo hinihingi. Thank God talaga for everything,” she enthused.

Andi on the other hand was able to prove her worth as the lead star of Agua Bendita since it remains to be a top-rating show long after she replaced her young counterpart. It was certainly a big step for her since she didn’t have enough acting background to back her up. But this showbiz newbie made up for it with her strong will and sheer hard work these past few months. “Nakita po siguro ng management na ready na ako for this kind of challenge. Kaya sisiguraduhin ko po na yung amount of enthusiasm na napapakita ko sa mga tao ngayon at yung excitement ko at gratitude ko, pina-promise ko na kahit gaano katagal ‘di mag-iiba yun.”

Empress could hardly believe that she was finally given a title role via Rosalka after 10 years in the business. Known for her acclaimed performances, the 17 year-old is confident that she has what it takes to be the next primetime princess. “May mga times din po na medyo nahihirapan akong umarte kapag pagod ako, may iniisip or laging bugbugan sa trabaho. Pero sa mga nakita ni’yo naman po, lahat po yun pinaghirapan ko, inaral ko yung bawat eksena, kaya siguro naging maganda yung kinalabasan. And sobrang masaya at blessed ako dahil grabe ang naging suporta ng mga tao sa show namin,” she beamed.
