Andrea Brillantes embraces ‘solo era,’ doesn’t mind acting without love team


Andrea Brillantes is embracing the rewards of being a solo actress, expressing her satisfaction with working beyond the concept of a love team.

Brillantes marked her first time working solo on a project through a new series, Drag You and Me. It recently had a media conference, where the press had the chance to ask the young actress about the experience. She admitted that the role was not an easy task at first.

“Nahirapan ako maging solo artist kasi simula [13 or 15] pa ako, meron na ‘kong love team. Lagi [ding] kaibigan [ko] ‘yung love team ko,” she stressed.

The 20-year-old continued, “Iba kasi ‘yung dynamics kapag in a relationship ka with your partner. Parang it’s not work eh, para kang may date araw-araw.”

However, Brillantes narrated that she eventually appreciated the opportunity to learn from the experience despite the initial challenges. 

“Nahihirapan ako na nakakapaninibago, but it’s fun to be with new people. Nakaka-work ko ang mga legends and marami akong natututunan sa kanila.”
