Now that Huwag Kang Mangamba star Andrea Brillantes is 18, she’s been receiving more and more comments netizens, friends, and co-workers about making her voice more mature.

Although she finds it a bit difficult because her voice can usually be quite small and high-pitched, she makes sure to adjust it when asked to, especially for her acting career. If the director asks her to modulate it, she will gladly do so.

She explains that her voice isn’t always like that. It just becomes small when she’s not comfortable yet with the person she is talking to. Eventually it will transition to her more natural tone, which we usually hear in talk shows or interviews after she’s broken the ice.

Though some continue comment negatively on her voice, Andrea finds pleasure in knowing that if she were in Japan or Korea, they would love her cute and baby-ish voice!
