On a TWBA Online Exclusive, Kadenang Ginto stars Andrea Brillantes and Francine Diaz play the “Game of Firsts.” The fast-rising teen stars recently came on Tonight with Boy Abunda to talk about their drama series, how their friendship began and their budding—yet quickly rising careers as the future entertainers and artists of the showbiz industry.
Many of us would recognize these young actresses in previous Kapamilya programs such as Annaliza (2013) where Andrea Brilliantes played the titular role and The Blood Sisters (2018) where Francine Diaz played Ginny Solomon, the eldest daughter of a child trafficking underboss, played by Mr. Ian de Leon. These young stars have proven that age is but a number and showcased talent and skills in their craft that goes beyond their youth.
In this fun online exclusive, the two reveal some of their “firsts”. Andrea admits that the first song she ever memorized was “Yellow Submarine” by The Beatles. Francine, meanwhile, reveals that the first time she realized she was a good actress is during her participation in the drama, Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin. Both stars also admit that they feel shy upon watching themselves on TV and unveil their first acting gigs as well as their first reactions upon discovering that they got the roles in Kadenang Ginto.
