Actress Andrea Torres is a self-admitted family-oriented individual. She is extremely proud of her parents who recently celebrated their 41st wedding anniversary.
“It was definitely a momentous occasion and I’m thankful that I was with them during that time,” she says. “It’s really something to celebrate, a huge feat for any married couple. Imagine, 40 years.”
The Kapuso actress happily reveals that in that span of time, she has never witnessed her folks quarreling. In fact, they get sweeter as time passes by.
“My dad doesn’t want to eat without my mom on his side. He also prepares her medicines. On her part, my mom is very caring and always does extra. It’s as if they’re still in the courtship stage,” she shares.
Clearly, this is one value that Andrea learned from her parents which she hopes to carry in her future married life.
“My parents tell me the importance of giving and take between husband and wife. Like when they have a misunderstanding, one should be calmer than the other. Mutual respect is also essential. In my 31 years, I’ve never heard them scream at each other,” she explains.
“My mom didn’t experience even a single pinch from my dad. I can say that all these times, the atmosphere they’ve given us their children is ideal. Our house really feels like a home,” the sexy actress adds.
On the professional side, the sultry star is playing a major part in the upcoming GMA cultural drama Legal Wives, which also top-bills Dennis Trillo, Bianca Umali, and Alice Dixson. She avers that as they approach the third cycle of their lock-in taping, she feels more confident even if the safety and health protocols being implemented are stricter.
“I commend our production team for being very organized. They see to it that all guidelines being discussed with the cast are met. Out taping days go on smoothly and we are able to focus on our job. We also get to have enough rest since the team wants that our immune system is always high,” ends Andrea.

Senator Bong Revilla, Jr. is very happy now that he’s back on television via the fantasy-drama-action “Agimat ng Agila” which already started airing on GMA-7 and has been registering well in the ratings chart.
“Yes, it’s been eight years,” he states. “I longed to act before the cameras again and I’m simply excited that my wish came true with my newest offering.”
The still good-looking actor-politician is highly impressed and satisfied with the turnout of his latest boob tube program.
“Credit goes to the excellent production team. The material turned out to be very good. From my director, writer and of course, the cast, they’re all Class A! I’m just thankful to all of them for exerting their best efforts just to make my comeback project a worthy one!”
Bong dedicates “Agimat ng Agila” to his late father, former senator Ramon Revilla.
“We all know that when you say ‘agimat’ or amulet, it’s him. He endeared himself to the Filipino audience through this genre. I pay tribute to my father through this project!”
The charismatic actor believes that his latest television offering is what the viewers need especially during these hard times.
“Oh yes! In these pandemic times, we all need to get entertained. ‘Agimat ng Agila’ has a universal theme---family, protecting nature, action, special effects…it’s all here. Even if it’s for TV, the quality of how it’s made is that of film. I really hope the viewers will support it,” he says.
