Aside from being part of the cast of a Kapamilya teleserye, newcomer Margaux Montana said it is an added blessing to be invited to join the Squad Plus this year along with fellow Huwag Kang Mangamba co-star Renshi Rueso.
“At first I was nervous kasi may pagka mahiyain ako at bago lang din. Pero masaya din kasi may mga bagong friends,” she shared during the Squad Plus media launch held last May 3.
Working on the set with the original Gold Squad members in Huwag Kang Mangamba is an enjoyable experience for Margaux who admits Andrea made the most memorable first impression on her.
“Kasama namin ngayon yung Gold Squad sa Huwag Kang Mangamba. Mabait silang lahat as in. On cam off cam ang babait. Hindi ko din makakalimuta si Andrea nung nag-lu-lunch kami tapos linapitan niya kami tapos tinanong niya kami kailan birthday namin and zodiac sign, ganun (laughs). Nakakatuwa,” she recalled.
Before acting, Margaux made a name for herself on social media, currently having 1.2M followers on her TikTok account. “Nag-start ako nung 2017. Tapos nag-stop then nag-start ulit ng 2018. Minsan kasi meron ding content na gusto yung mga viewers so yung gusto nila yun yung ginagawa ko tapos meron akong nag-trending na video. Recently lang yun. Umabot siya ng 4.4M views. Sumayaw lang ako dun. Nagandahan lang siguro sila sa background ko (laughs),” she shared.
Aside from honing her acting skills, the self-confessed Moira dela Torre fan and Tiktoker said he would love to get into singing someday. “Siguro. Kasi hilig ko din kumanata and gusto ko rin i-share yung talent ko,” she adds.
