SANYA Lopez is very much amused watching herself in the replay of “Encantadia 2” that is now being shown on GMA Telebabad after “24 Oras”, temporarily replacing “Descendants of the Sun” while we’re on a corona lockdown.
“Hindi ko makakalimutan ang show na ito, kasi breakout role ko diyan ang role ko as Danaya,” she says. “Dahil diyan kaya mas nakilala ako ng tao at nabigyan ako ng sarili lead roles in soaps like ‘Haplos’, 'Cain at Abel' and ‘Dahil sa Pag-ibig’, kaya memorable talaga for me ang ‘Encantadia 2.’”
Sanya was really affected by the lockdown as the playdate of her new movie, “Isa Pang Bahaghari”, has been postponed indefinitely. “Dapat showing ito this April 11 as part of the summer Metro filmfest but since hindi natuloy 'yun, di pa namin alam kung kailan ito mai-schedule uli,” she says. “Sayang nga, kasi I’m really proud of this movie dahil I get to appear for the first time with such respected actors as Nora Aunor and Phillip Salvador, who play my parents, and directed by Joel Lamangan no less. Marami kaming dramatic confrontation scenes dito, lalo na ako with Phillip Salvador kasi very bitter ako sa kanya for leaving our family when he worked abroad nung baby pa ako at hindi na siya bumalik.”
Sanya is currently sporting a new hairdo and her fans say it becomes her. “I had it cut short kasi summer naman ngayon, mainit ang panahon, so bagay lang sa hot weather,” she says. “Natuwa naman ako when my followers said in Instagram na nagustuhan nila when they saw the picture I posted. Bagay na bagay raw sa akin.”
Sanya is now more active on social media and her fans like it that she communicates directly with them. “Habang lockdown tayo at hindi masyadong busy, di sige, mag-post muna nang mag-post sa vlog ko. Kasi pag naging busy uli ako sa taping, then wala na naman akong mag-time para mag-post ng mga kaganapan about me.”
Her fans are also very much entertained by the TikTok videos she is posting in her own vlog showing her performing in various funny scenes.
“Hindi ko akalain na maaaliw sila. But they say, nakakapagbigay raw ng good vibes ang pagti-TikTok ko, kaya nai-inspire naman ako to do more videos. Marami ring nakagusto when I showed them my skin care routine kung paano mapapanatiling makinis at glowing ang ating balat.”
Also, you can now hear Sanya’s voice as she dubs the voice of lead character Gillian in the hit Korean drama, “My Golden Life”. Ken Chan voices lead actor Dion in the show. They meet when they both figure in an accident and eventually fall for each other but they were both shocked when they find out that they’re actually brother and sister due to an incident that happened in the past. Supporting them in this show are Bruno Gabriel and Ayra Mariano and it’s seen at 11:30 AM just before “Eat Bulaga”.
