Andrea Brillantes has been in the industry since the early 2010s.

Who could forget her iconic lines as Marga from Kadenang Ginto? As a child star-turned-leading lady who's been working non-stop since she was 7 years young, Andrea’s already built herself an impressive, meaty filmography that can rival that of her seniors.
