In an interview with Tito Boy for “Tonight with Boy Abunda“, Brillantes revealed that her biggest disappointment came when she was already in the final stage of the selection process and then suddenly she was notified that someone got the role.
“Akala ko nga po makukuha ako nun kasi pinatawag ako nun titingnan kung paano ako lumangoy, tapos nung nasa pool na ako, bigla silang tumawag na may nakuha nang iba. Iyak ako ng iyak sobra.”
Andrea has been vocal about her dream of getting a mermaid role ever since she started her career in the entertainment industry.
“Na-realize ko na buti pala hindi ko to nakuha ibig sabihin it’s not for me. Baka meron pang mas better for me.”
