Fans have watched Andrea Brillantes ever since she was a child actress. Now, after portraying Marga, there is no doubt that she has grown in front and behind the cameras. As dramatic as Kadenang Ginto is, however, their set is not always so serious. There were many instances when Andrea Brillantes broke character for the funniest reasons!
WATCH: 10 times Andrea Brillantes nailed her ‘Bida/Kontrabida’ role in Kadenang Ginto
Daniela (Dimples Romana) and Marga were having a serious talk about Cassie’s (Francine Diaz) downfall in one scene when Andrea started laughing for no reason. “Bakit ka natawa? Nakakatawa ba ‘yung mukha ko?” Dimples jokingly asked.
Uncontrollable giggling is something many actors can relate to, but it is not always their fault. In one scene, while Marga was bullying Cassie like usual, you could hear the director laughing outside the frame. This then triggered Andrea to break character.
Portraying the young diva requires being fierce at all times. While walking down a narrow hallway, an extra bumped into the kontrabida’s shoulder. She stayed in character long enough to react in a way Marga would—give a nasty side-eye. Andrea did not expect her response that she ended up laughing.
The Kadenang Ginto teen star sometimes forgot her lines, saying “I’ll just get my car” instead of “I’ll just get my bag”. She was trying to deny her feelings for Mikoy to the mean girls but ended up confessing her love. “Wait, this is wrong,” she realized a little too late that she got the blocking wrong.
Despite being a kontrabida, we will surely miss Marga, from the intense confrontation to these behind the scenes sneezes.
