With 14 years (and counting!) of experience up her sleeve, Erich Gonzales is a power to be reckoned with in the showbiz industry-- and a young one at that, if we may add. From her early days as a celebrity, we’ve seen her evolve into this beautiful, successful woman many of us dream of becoming.

But more than her looks and talent, Erich is known to be fearless; someone who doesn’t settle, someone who’s willing to go beyond what is expected of her-- and we’ve got proof! Read on to see the 5 times Erich went the extra mile to challenge the norm!

1.  That time when she played a teenage mom, and earned herself a ticket to stardom

While it may be acceptable to be hesitant on taking difficult roles (at least for the first major project), Erich challenged the norm by taking on the ~dare~ and played a 14-year-old mom. It’s definitely not an easy task, but what can we say? Hard work really does pay off!

2.  When she starred in Star Cinema’s first Filipino-Thai movie, alongside a Thai superstar

In a world full of rom-coms, it pays to be a little bit extra-- and that’s just what Erich did! Following the success of her hit TV series, she challenged the norm by taking on yet another key role alongside an international superstar. She didn’t even need magic to make it happen; just pure talent!

3.  That time when she took on THREE roles in one show

If you think portraying a role is hard, can you just imagine giving life to three characters? It may seem too far-fetched, but not for Erich-- it was a challenge she willingly took. She proved to everyone just how dedicated she is to her craft and how she can pull off any role (with flying colors!).

4.  When she topped Metro Magazine’s Best Dressed List in the first-ever ABS-CBN Ball

With her shimmering evening looks in the past years, some probably expected something similar for her ABS-CBN Ball ensemble. But being the unpredictable woman that she is, Erich surprised us all when she showed up in a timeless white piece-- challenging the norm by going for something with less glitz, but more glam!

5.  That one time she directed AND co-starred in a music video

For someone so used to being in front of the camera, you’d probably be surprised to know that Erich marked her first directing stint just recently. Yes, in case you missed it, she challenged the norm by directing-- and co-starring-- with Marco Maurer in his music video! And yes, that’s her ex-leading man’s brother!


In everything that she does, Erich is (really) not one to settle-- even when it comes to her shampoo. That’s why she swears by something different (and fresher!) like CLEAR to help her fight the common scalp problems of dandruff, itch, grease, dirt, and residue. So, if you’re feeling a little ~daring~ too, we dare you to be different and challenge the norm by switching to CLEAR complete soft care, with Total 5 Scalp Freshness.
