As Galema: Anak ni Zuma enters its last week run, Andi Eigenmann said she feels blessed to have been part of such a good project. She has also been tapped to play Anne Curtis’s nemesis on the much-awaited fantaserye Dyesebel. “Siyempre masaya ako kasi nakikita ng management kung gaano ako ka-dedicated sa ginagawa ko and kung gaano ko kamahal ito and that’s all I want naman na makapagtrabaho and patuloy na ma-e-entertain ko ang mga manunuod,” she said.
Although the onscreen chemistry between her and Galema co-star Matteo Guidicelli has helped make their series a success (they were first paired together in the 2010 hit fantaserye Agua Bendita), Andi said it is unlikely that Matteo will ever court her. “Kami ni Matteo magkaibigan lang bago pa kami pareho maging artista. Alam ni Matteo yung itsura ko nung mataba pa ako (laughs) and we’ve been good friends ever since. Siguro kung ma-i-in love kami sa isa’t isa, na-in love na kami nung Agua Bendita pa lang. Pero mas may importanteng kind of relationship na nabuo between me and Matteo and that is friendship and we know na mas gugustuhin namin for us to be friends forever rather than to take the risk of trying something more and maybe ruining it pa,” she explained.
Andi said that she is already used to people speculating that there is something going on between her and Matteo because of their natural closeness off-cam. “Actually sa set napapagkamalan kaming may something kasi sa sobrang close namin, sa set palagi kaming sinasabihan na para kaming magkapatid kasi palagi kaming nag-aaway kasi masyado na kaming comfortable sa isa’t isa. I think yun yung kind of bond na hindi na puwedeng i-break ng biglaan na lang magkakagusto kayo sa isa’t isa. I think it’s set in stone na yung pagkakaibigan namin ay platonic,” she admitted.
The Galema actress said she also learned a lot from their director Wenn Deramas when it comes to acting and even to different kinds of problems in life. “Kasi kay direk Wenn ang hangad niya lang ay maging masaya ako and that I really dwell on things that shouldn’t be counted as important. And naniniwala talaga ako kay direk Wenn kasi other than the fact na kilala niya ako simula pagkabata, alam ko na mas madami na siyang napagdaanan, his experience, papunta pa lang kami pabalik na siya. So talagang I want to take to heart kung ano yung mga advice na binibigay niya sa akin kasi alam ko na he just tells me these things for the betterment of my heart,” she said.
