Garnering 1.8 million Instagram followers, Andrea Brillantes also thanks her fans for supporting her online.
From the teleserye Pangako Sa ‘Yo, young star Andrea Brillantes will soon be back on primetime through the upcoming series Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin starring Gerald Anderson and Kim Chiu.
“Super saya ko kasi magwowork na ulit ako kasi medyo naging mahaba-haba ‘yung pahinga ko so it’s good to be back,” she told PUSH.com.ph.
Although it took a while before her return to primetime TV, 2016 has nonetheless became a busy year for Andrea who also launched her first book titled, #Goals.
This 2017, the 13-year-old would like to release another one if given the chance.
“Gusto ko sana kasi madami pa rin akong ibang fans na hindi pa nakuha talaga ‘yung libro and marami ring nanghihingi ng part two so sana ngayon 2017, baka magkaroon ng part two. Hopefully.”
Should there be a part two, Andrea would like it to be a journal similar to the concept of the Wreck It Journal where users will be the one to fill the pages.
Saying that she conceptualizes on what nice things to put in the second book, Andrea said, “‘Nung una, nagbigay sila ng title na ‘#Goals’ pero may mga naisip na rin ako na gusto kong idagdag like ‘yung parang pagiging slumbook niya kasi ‘yun talaga ‘yung gusto ko, ‘yung mayroon mga sasagutan mo, ‘yung may mga activities. Gusto ko talaga ‘yung may mga activities and gusto ko rin kasi ‘yung parang Wreck This Journal, parang gano’n kasi kinolekta ko ‘yun eh. Dahil dito sa #Goals, na-i-share ko ‘yung story ko. Siguro sa part two, ‘yung story naman nila ‘yung i-share nila.”
Meanwhile, Andrea is also happy that her Instagram followers has ballooned to 1.8 million.
According to her, social media sites are very relevant for celebrities as these are venues for people to get to know them better.
“’Pag celebrity ka kasi, sobrang laking part ang social media para sa’yo kasi ‘dun ka mas nakikilala ng mga tao, ‘dun ka nila mas nakikita lalo na kung wala kang show. ‘Di ka nila nakikita madalas sa TV pero dahil ngayon, lahat na may phone, may Instagram, may Twitter, mas nagiging updated sila sa life mo,” she said.
A look at Andrea’s Instagram page reveals how fashionable the young actress is. According to her, she does her own makeup for teleseryes and for ASAP. “Actually, wala naman po (akong peg na celebrity) basta dapat fresh lang kasi minsan may mga mas bagay na make-up sa kanila, iba ‘yung bagay sa mukha ko kaya binabagayan ko na lang kung ano ‘yung mas bagay sa’kin.”
When it comes to her outfits, Andrea said that they are also her and her mother’s ideas, “Parehas din kaming rakista kaya lang mas ginagawa ko lang mas bata.”
She shared that she and her mother would team up to take pictures of her OOTDs or ‘Outfit of the Day’.
Finally, Andrea would like to thank her online supporters.
“Sa lahat ng mga tumitingin sa posts ko, sa mga nagla-like, thank you dahil pinatupad niyo ang pangarap ko na umabot sa one million followers and above,” she said.
