Here’s the story behind Andrea Brillantes’ goddess-themed pre-debut photos

The public witnessed Andrea Brillantes transition from a child star to a teenager. This year, equipped with dreams and passion, she is ready to step into adulthood. In this edition of Kapamilya Chat, Andrea giddily talked about her upcoming 18th birthday on March 12 and more about what fans can look forward to.

Andrea heaped heart reactions all over social media by uploading a series of pre-debut snapshots. Reminiscent of the “Birth of Venus,” the photos highlighted her goddess-like beauty, creating an artsy and a bit daring appeal. A week later, she unravelled the next set of photos wherein she was dressed as an enchanting water nymph.

The young actress said she isn’t the type to celebrate with a traditional debut party, thus opting for a photoshoot. The theme was inspired by her growing fascination with astrology and also by Nadine Lustre’s “Scorpio Season” caption on Instagram.

Andrea was hands-on with the pictorial. She spent her free hours on the set creating mood boards for the concept. She got help from her mom and sister who organized the shoot itself. But the choice of glam and photography team was also her call.

Andrea never dreamt of having a traditional debut party. She even got anxious when told to have one like most Kapamilya stars. All she wanted is a tropical or beach vacation in Hawaii or Siargao. But even the travel plans were cancelled due to the pandemic and lock-in taping for her new series.

As she embarks on a new journey to adulthood, Andrea would like to give glory to the Man above for keeping her healthy. She’s also thankful to have built a house for her family before she turns 18. She said everything happened at God’s perfect time. She also thanked her family, friends, and fans for the undying support. She likewise appreciates the management’s effort to make her feel special on her birthday. They wanted to give her a big party but that really isn’t her wish.

She doesn’t expect something grand on her birthday. Besides, it doesn’t take much to make her happy.

This 2021, Andrea is set to captivate us once more via inspirational drama Huwag Kang Mangamba alongside Seth Fedelin, Francine Diaz, and Kyle Echarri. Catch its premiere this coming March 22 on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z.
