Andrea Brillantes on cats, acting, and answered prayers

After over two months stuck at home, Andrea Brillantes is ready to jump back to her usual busy schedule. Although, her time spent during this community quarantine was not entirely wasted.

WATCH: Andrea shares ECQ activities, expresses heartfelt love for fans in Kapamilya Confessions

The young actress starred in Stay at Home Stories: “LDR along with Seth Fedelin. Their love team’s episode offers a relatable story for many couples who are physically apart because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since this was shot at home, Andrea revealed that her mother Belle took on the role of camera operator. “Ang galing ni mama doon kasi hindi siya magalaw tapos may isang [shot] doon na kailangan niyang i-hold for one minute,” she boasted.

Aside from this, she also released a new single titled “Never Give Up”. Andrea wanted an uplifting song that would spread positivity. “Gusto ko gumawa ng kanta na makakapagsabi na kaya mo,” she explained.

“LDR” and “Never Give Up” are only two of her latest projects, despite the ongoing adjustments to the “new normal.” The Kapamilya star definitely has more in store for fans! When she joined show business at nine years old, Andrea had a number of dreams for herself. At one point she actually thought they would never come true, until she earned the role of Marga on Kadenang Ginto. The afternoon teleserye overwhelmed her with opportunities that ultimately changed her life. “Lahat ng pinagdasal ko nangyari,” she said.

One upside to the community quarantine is that the Gold Squad member got to spend every day with her pets! She is the ultimate animal lover. They have a grumpy male Persian named “Cat”. Momshie Belle could not think of a boy name because she wanted a girl. In the end, they just named him Cat. Then there is Becky the female Scottish Fold who is the absolute sweetest. Andrea previously assumed that cats are mean and cold, but all of that changed when Becky entered her life.

Their family also includes an Aspin, two Yorkies, and a Shih Tzu. She also has a Chihuahua who is currently in Cavite with Seth. If you think they already have too many four-legged friends, Andrea disagrees. In fact, she is hoping to add a Corgi and a pig once they move to their forever home.
