Teen star Andrea Brillantes is currently happy with how things are going with her love team with Seth Fedelin in the hit ABS-CBN afternoon drama Kadenang Ginto.
The 16-year-old actress feels glad that her screen pairing is well-accepted by the viewing public. Proof is that they’re always trending and the show is a consistent top-rater.
Observers see that she’s tickled pink whenever Seth’s name is mentioned.
“Oh, that? Maybe, I’m just really happy with all the positive developments happening in our budding love team. It’s simply amazing,” she beams.
Some quarters think that they’re already playing beautiful music together.
“As in we have something special going on? I’m only sixteen and Seth is seventeen. Let’s just put it this way, we are presently in that stage of getting to know each other better. We’re getting closer. I guess that’s it,” she says.
If in the coming days Seth would formally woo her heart, will she give him a chance?
Does this mean she’s already prepared to enter a romantic relationship at this point?
“Well, I’m still young and so is Seth. One more thing, my priority as of now is my career. I want to work hard and accomplish more because I have so many dreams to fulfill. One of which is to build my own house. Anyway, Seth is with me in Kadenang Ginto so I see him almost every day,’ Andrea explains.
Speaking of her top-rating soap, a young girl fan recently impersonated her portrayal of Margaret and it went viral on social media.
“To be honest, I watch it every day. I downloaded the video so I can watch it wherever I go. Even in the airplane, I watch it. In fact, I’ve already memorized it. It’s fun because I already met the young girl who impersonated me. Her name is Marjorie. Her impersonation is just flattering. I’m grateful for it,” she says.
Apart from being one popular teen star, she is considered as well to be a prime social media influencer. How does she feel about it?
“There is pressure on my part because your post is open to everyone. Before you post something, you have to consider and weigh things if it’s good and will help or inspire your followers instead of promoting hate. But it’s also fun at the same time since you can see all your followers. In this way, you can really feel how much they love you!” ends Andrea.

According to Shaina Magdayao, she sees no possibility working with her former boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz in case he already decides to return to acting after his indefinite leave in showbiz.
“When we were together, we agreed not to star opposite each other in any project. But as they say, show business is just a small world. Who knows what the future holds, right? But to be honest, I don’t see it happening so I can’t answer,” she avers.
It’s a fact that Shaina had been single for years now. How does she feel about it?
“It’s been a long time already. I lost count actually. It’s that long. Although it’s hurting, it gave me the time to love myself better and that’s what matters. As the old cliché goes, before you can love another person, you have to be whole first,” she relates.
“Considering what I’ve been through emotionally, I felt I got consumed after giving so much. So I deemed it best to fix myself first, to be whole again. That’s what I worked hard for in the past years,” she adds.
Interestingly, is she dating at present?
“I can say I’m in a good place. I will not hide it if ever but as of now, there’s no particular person who can be credited,” says Shaina.
