Tonight with Boy Abunda welcomes actress Andi Eigenmann, the star of the internationally-acclaimed film “Maid in London” and more recently known as the “island girl” after her big move from the busy city of Manila to the more paradise-like setting of Baler. However, the actress has recently returned to the showbiz realm as she’s set to promote her newest horror film, “All Souls Night”. On tonight’s episode with the one and only King of Talk, Andi shares about her new life in paradise; her life as a single mom and her relationship with boyfriend-slash-surfing champion, Philmar Alipayo.
The actress made headlines earlier this year upon the news on her big move to the province and her decision to settle against the beautiful sands of Baler. Andi was reported to have sold all her luxurious belongings in exchange for a simple, provincial life—starting anew in the small town where she said to have felt is a place where she belongs. Recently, the actress has been staying in the surfing capital of the country, Siargao, and has been shredding its famous waters with her surfer boyfriend, Philmar.
When asked about her reactions on the rumors going about on how she ultimately quit showbiz, Andi tells how she started at a very young age and ever since then, her life has been in front of the cameras—even the personal details where subject to the public’s scrutiny. The actress goes to say that what people didn’t know as they were getting to know her on-screen, is that she was also getting to know herself. And her big move to Baler was a decision she made for herself in an attempt to know herself more by herself in a much more lay-low and toxic-free environment. However, when asked she’s truly set on leaving the industry, the beautiful actress admits that’s it’s hard to turn your back on something, knowing your heart is in it—implying that will always return to the world of entertainment.
Andi also expressed that the time she made her big move to Baler was also a slow time in her work life which probably influenced her decision then.
