As a celebrity influencer with millions of followers on Instagram and YouTube, Andrea Brillantes shared her social media habits during the mediacon for The Gold Squad’s new digital anthology Click, Like, Share.

“Mas conscious ako with what I share, with what I comment, tweet, yung mga ganun. Pero sa pag-like, nila-like ko lang naman pag gusto ko talaga. So hindi naman ako nako-conscious dun. Mas dapat maging aware kung ano yung kini-click kasi minsan din bilang artista, nakakatakot na may mapindot ka na site na hindi mo alam kung na-hack or scam. So dun ako siguro aware sa mga kini-click ko, sa mga tinitingnan ko. Halimbawa sa comments section ang dami na pa lang nag-ko-comment ng mga bad stuff about me na hindi makakatulong kung binuksan ko pa,” she said.

From being known as the feisty Marga in Kadenang Ginto to the humble Mira in Huwag Kang Mangamba, Andrea said she is still up to doing any role, even if it means going back to becoming a kontrabida onscreen.

“Sa totoo lang hindi ko inakala na mami-miss ko si Marga. I love her pero ang hirap niya kasi na character. Mga one year and four months na yun everyday ako may migraine dahil kay Marga. Ganun siya kabigat. At nung pinortray ko na si Mira (her character in the soap Huwag Kang Mangamba) nawala yung sakit sa ulo ko. Pero deep down na-miss ko din. So siyempre pag may inalok sa akin, hindi naman ako basta basta mag-go-go. Gusto ko pa rin kasi yung mga kontrabida na may puso, yung may dahilan kung bakit sila naging ganun. Kasi para sa akin relatable yung ganun kasi wala namang pinanganak na masama. So kung merong i-o-offer sa akin, siguro, ewan ko, kasi medyo nakaka-trauma din si Marga eh (laughs). Ang bigat niya talaga eh,” she explained.

While doing home quarantine last year, Andrea said she found the time to pursue her other interests like astrology.

“Nung nagka-ECQ ulit, every time na may quarantine lagi nagkakaroon ako ng bagong hobby. Nung nag-ECQ nagkaroon ako ng hobby na pag-aralan ang astrology, ang crystals, I tried din tarot reading. Huwag niyo sana ako pagtawanan pero as in sineryoso ko siya. Matagal na akong familiar sa astrology pero nung nag-Tiktok kasi ako, ang dami mo kasing matututunan dun hindi lang siya puro sayaw. Yung Tiktok ko puro siya astrology so ang dami kong nalaman. Pinag-aralan ko talaga siya and masaya siya pag-aralan. Yun lang yung isang pinag-aralan ko na nag-enjoy ako, hindi ako na-stress. Kasi walang math doon. totoo lang siya (laughs).

“May balak din kasi ako, kung papapiliin ng course, puwede pa magbago pero gusto ko i-try mag-take ng psychiatry. Kasi part din ng pag-aaral ng isang tao yung astrology,” she said.

Among all the celebrities she follows online, Andrea said her top influencer inspiration is American model and beauty mogul Kylie Jenner.

“Whenever I say her name, people think na ang pag-a-idolize ko sa kanya is very shallow. Kasi whenever they think about Kylie Jenner nakikita nila yung sexy side ni Kylie. Pero I admire her and she inspires me dahil at the 18 naging sobrang successful na nung business siya. Sinubaybayan ko kasi talaga yung babaeng yun. Naging billionaire siya at a very young age. Para sa akin kasi achiever siya eh and yun yung gusto ko maging. Hindi niya ni-limit yung sarili niya sa pagiging Jenner. Mas ginamit pa niya yun para magawa niya yung mga gusto niyang bagay at mas maka-achieve ng mas madaming bagay and gusto ko na matapang siya, alam niya yung ginagawa niya and someday sana maging ganun din ako na magkaroon ako ng sariling business hopefully someday,” she said.
