As Andrea Brillantes turned 18, she marked the momentous occasion with a grand birthday celebration fit for a princess.
It seemed as if it was only just yesterday that Andrea starred as a young girl who grew up in the care of a fisherman in Annaliza and eventually made a mark with her bida-kontrabida role as Marga Bartolome in Kadenang Ginto.
Now, she’s fully blossomed into a young lady as she celebrated her 18th birthday with her love team partner Seth Fedelin serving as her escort.
Nice Print Photography shared photos from her dance with Seth, with her ethereal beauty standing out as she donned a red gown.
Metro Magazine took part in the celebration through a photoshoot featuring Andrea Brillantes as their muse.
Andrea wore the creations from some of the country’s top fashion designers such as Michael Leyva, Mak Tumang, Francis Libiran, Mark Bumgarner, Vania Romoff, Patty Ang, Joe San Antonio, Debbie Co, Patricia Santos, Steph Tan, and Erika dela Cruz, as well as pieces from the H&M x Simone Rocha collection.
Meanwhile, in the same Metro Magazine feature, Andrea shared how her life changed through Kadenang Ginto.
“Nu’ng una, medyo skeptical pa ako kasi kontrabida siya [si Marga] pero nu’ng natanggap ko ’yun, nagdasal ako sa Kanya. Sabi ko, ‘Bigyan Mo lang ako ng opportunity. Ayoko hingin Sa ’Yo na gawin Mo akong sikat. Bigyan Mo ako ng opportunity tapos kukunin ko ’yan, ako na magtra-trabaho for it, ako na ang magbibigay ng lahat ko,’” she said.
She went on: “At ibinigay Niya ’yung Kadenang Ginto. Sabi ko, ibibigay ko ang lahat sa role na ito and nu’ng nagkaroon ng Kadenang Ginto, bumuhos naman ’yung blessings.”
Andrea, who turned 18 last March 12, is set to showcase more of her acting prowess through the upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye Huwag Kang Mangamba.
