Last September, the second installment of the award-winning film On The Job: The Missing 8 was released exclusively at HBO Go. The lead star, John Arcilla received the Volpi Cup for Best Actor Award at the Venice International Film Festival. In his ‘Kumustar Ka” interview, the actor praised his co-star Andrea Brillantes who played the role of Diane, the daughter of journalist Sisoy (John) in the movie.
“Sobrang gandang bata. Napakagaling, napakasensitive at ang natural niyang umarte. Sobrang nakakatuwa nga na isa siya sa mga anak ko kasi you know how popular Andrea Brillantes is. Siya ‘yung isa sa mga pinaka-number one ngayon na kilala ng mga kabataan, especially ng millennials,” Arcilla stated.
The actor also mentioned that working with Andrea made him “happy, lucky and honored”. He also said that “Isa siya sa pinakasikat ngayon na batang artista. Magaling pa, magaling na artista. Hindi lang maganda kundi super talented and napakabait sa totoo lang. Sobrang nakakatuwa siyang kasama.” which shows that he adored Andrea not only in work but her personality as a person.
Andrea is indeed an inspiration not only to her fans but also to the people who worked with her. It is an honor to work and receive praises from a veteran actor. This is exemplary as a young actress like her and it would also help her build a career of professionalism and character.
Thank you for praising our girl, Sir John Arcilla!
