Behind every celebrity’s established image lie less known tricks and talents that they can actually do. More often than not though, it happens during least likely occasions or even off cam. In Erich’s case, she can go from being sweet and meek into a fully energetic ghetto girl crumping onstage who even raps and does beatbox every now and then. Apart from that, Erich is also a notable badminton player, which becomes apparent every year, during the annual athletic event called Star Magic Games.
Though she was a quiet actress, Erich’s artistry, charm and following did not go unnoticed for certain advertisers as she was tapped to endorse a premiere department store, a German perfume brand, a multinational shampoo brand, a world-class dental center, a local clothing brand and local as well as international beauty products. A little recently, Erich was tapped to endorse a seafood restaurant from Cebu.
Her stunning Filipina looks, svelte body coupled with the fame she received over the years have paved the way for her to be invited to become a cover girl for numerous local glossies. She became the cover star of female fashion magazine Cosmopolitan, teen magazines Chalk and Meg, female fitness magazine Women’s Health and fashion magazines Sense & Style, Mega and Metro. She has also been the cover star of ABS-CBN showbiz magazine StarStudio as well as technology magazine Speed. Erich and Enchong were likewise tapped to be the joint cover stars of Meg magazine in the past.
In 2014, Erich, along with Maja Salvador, Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Barretto, graced the big fashion issue of Mega magazine which had them flying in Africa and shooting in the safari.
Meanwhile, although she has not posted for any men’s magazine, Erich had been included in FHM’s Sexiest Women in the Philippines list thrice.
Erich’s acting prowess did not go unnoticed by several award-giving bodies as she earned various citations and recognizations. Among them were Guillermo Awards for the Most Popular Loveteam for Movies and TV with Enchong Dee in 2012 and FAMAS German Moreno Youth Achievement Award in 2011. The year 2010 was a year of recognitions for Erich among them were the jury prize awardee for the movie Paano Ko Sasabihin, the 41st Box Office Entertainment Awards “Most Promising Love Team with Enchong Dee in Magkaribal” and 2010 Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Foundation awardee as well as the Best Bet award for Tanging Yaman.
