Andrea Torres BiographyAndrea Torres is the screen name of Andrea Elizabeth Torres. Andrea was born on May 4, 1990 in Manila, Philippines and is a Filipina actress, TV celebrity, model and host. She went to University of Sto. Tomas and took up Communication Arts and modeling. She was introduced as a co-host in “Ka-Blog,” a defunct youth oriented magazine show. She also starred in the movies such as “You To Me Are Everything,” with Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes and “Shake, Rattle and Roll X.” After “Ka-Blog,” Andrea decided to take a break from showbiz and focused on her studies.
It was in 2011 when Andrea made a comeback and signed a three-year exclusive contract under GMA Network, where she was given a project via “Blusang Itim,” an afternoon drama series. Her being active in school activities helped polished her acting skills. She had been joining school plays and is a member of the volleyball team. She also studied ballet lessons and dancing.
The remake of the 2002 teledrama entitled “Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga,” paved the way for an Andrea Torres and Mikael Daez loveteam. They played the role of Cecilia Fulgencio and Carlos Miguel Altamonte respectively. Andrea was at that point in time of that depression struck her and thought of leaving the showbiz industry for good. She was giving herself three more years to wait for that big break or opportunity to get a good project, until this teleserye came. She was like thinking of shifting to another career if showbiz was not really meant for her.
Although her parents agree to try her luck on showbiz and quit from school in the meantime, they agreed she would finish her course eventually. They are amenable that this opportunity can come only once, and she might as well try it. The demand for her taping schedule is tight and she cannot cope up with school work and requirements all at the same time.
Andrea also appeared in various television shows such as “Sunday All Stars,” “With A Smile,” ‘Magpakailanman: The Nil Nodalo Story,” “Wagas: Mga Totoong Kwento ng Pag-ibig,” “Bubble Gang,” ‘Party Pilipinas,” “Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga,” “My Beloved,” “Spooky Nights: The Mommy Returns,” and Qpids.”
GMA 7 is also preparing a new afternoon teleserye pairing her once again with Mikael Daez.
Andrea to those who knew her came from ABS-CBN but it is in GMA 7 that she was given the big break in her career. She is happy that GMA is taking care of her career and says she could stay in this network like forever. The network has big plans for her like currently she is busy taping with a new TV show entitled “With A Smile,” soon to be aired in a morning slot in GMA. Once again, she co-starts with her “Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga” leading man, Mikael Daez together with Christian Bautista. Andrea plays the role of Isay, an energetic barbecue vendor. She had to greatly adjust for the role since knowing Andrea she is a lady in the real sense of the word. The character requires her to be hyperactive and she had a pretty hard time taking workshops for the role.
