Andrea Torres Goes International2:16 AM
Being labeled as an international star may still remain a dream for actors who have been in the industry for a long time but for Andrea Torres, she have that title in the bag. Not bad for someone who transformed into a black swine in her former afternoon soap "Mga Lihim ni Annasandra".
Andrea is currently doing a project with the Cambodia Television Network (CTN) for a mini-series which is also being co-produced by GMA 7. "Blood in Dispute" will be about martial arts and romantic love and she is in good company with Mikael Daez and a list of A-list Khmer actors. The project has no definite screening date yet in the Philippines but the initial plan is to break it down into a mini-series.
Remember the hit remake "Sana Ikaw Na Nga" where she also shared screen credits with Mikael Daez and was aired for 5 months from September 2012 to February 2013? The series was dubbed in Khmer and was recently aired in Cambodia. The positive feedback of the airing signaled for an original production with Andrea, Mikael and the Cambodian actors.
Our newest international actress is excited, especially when she saw how she was warmly greeted by Cambodian fans while they were in location shoot for "Blood in Dispute". "Pagdating namin may naghihintay dun sa airport na parang group of Cambodian fans... Parang nakakahalubilo na namin sila." Andrea also guested in several Cambodian variety shows and game shows.
How does it feel that she is now being tagged as an international star? "Hindi ko siya nasama sa mga goals ko. Kasi hindi ko naman alam na puwede pala siya mangyari. Nakakatuwa po. Sobrang kaba pero pagdating dun dire-diretso... wala naman kaming naitapon sa scenes ni Mikael."
Now known by the public for her sexy image, Andrea is ranked 6th at the ongoing poll for FHM's Sexiest in 2015. Ellen Adarna leads the current tally, followed by Sam Pinto and Jennylyn Mercado. Three-time number 1 Marian Rivera begs off from the race to concentrate on her pregnancy.
When asked how comfortable she is with the sexy actress tag: "Ok lang po. Choice ko naman eh. Nung nang FHM ako, expect ko na iba na talaga ang takbo ng career ko." How far can she go? "OK lang din naman ako mag topless basta di lang bastusin yung pagkagawa..."
An FHM Babe with a Heart. Andrea Torres is seen here with the special kids of Barangay Pag-asa in Quezon City where she chose to hold a charity birthday celebration with the help of GMA Artist Center. She officially turned 25 last May 4th.
