Screen darling Sanya Lopez seems to go nowhere but up in her pursuit of a bright showbiz career. With two current lead roles on GMA-7 and a stellar social media presence, she is definitely now a household name in the country.
Despite all these, the 24-year-old actress keeps her feet on the ground. When asked where she attributes her success, Sanya thanks the Almighty for the continued grace and the talent given to her as well as the trust from her management, “Siyempre po, si God. I ask for guidance all the time and I know He makes everything happens. Also, GMA and GMA Artist Center for their trust in me.”
On screen, Sanya gives life to the colorful and very relatable character of Yaya Melody in the top-rating primetime series First Yaya. She also stars in the weekend fantasy show Agimat ng Agila as the headstrong and compassionate Maya Lagman. Both portrayals are gaining positive feedback from Kapuso viewers and netizens.
Meanwhile, she also marked another milestone as she recently reached 10 million followers on Tiktok. She admitted that it still came as a surprise when she learned of the tremendous increase of her subscribers to her Tiktok account (@sanya_lopez).
“I got surprised when I learned that I’ve a lot of followers on Tiktok. I didn’t expect this to happen. It started lang talaga na ine-enjoy ko lang yung paggawa ng TikTok, so I’m happy to see na nag-e-enjoy sila.”
In addition, she wishes to use the digital space to be able to provide good vibes and inspiration to social media users, “As they say, when you enjoy doing what you do, mas maganda ang kalalabasan ng TikTok na ginawa mo. Gusto ko lang mag-enjoy at mabigyan ng saya ang mga sumusuporta sa akin at makita nila ang other side of Sanya.”
Catch Sanya in First Yaya weeknights, at 8:00 p.m., on GMA Telebabad, and in Agimat ng Agila every Saturday, 7:15 p.m..
