Aiko Melendez Allows Son Andre To Enter ShowbizAiko Melendez finally allowed her son, Andre Yllana, to enter the showbiz industry. She added that she can see Andre joining showbiz in two years time. Her daughter, Martina, on the other hand, will not be allowed to enter showbiz because she's attending Poveda.
Andre already talked to his mother about his dreams to be an actor and race car driver just like his father, Jomari Yllana. During vacation, they tried to let him do stints on television shows, but his grades suffered. So, Aiko said he will only be allowed to be active in showbiz once he finishes high school.
She doesn't want to be a stage mother, so Aiko said she will just advise Andre what to do, but it will still be up to him. She will probably be present during the first shooting day, but she will let Andre handle himself afterwards.
Aiko admitted that Andre wanted to be enrolled in a workshop because he is pressured to be a good actor. His parents, Aiko and Jomari, are both award-winning actors.
Right now, he's attending the workshops of Peter Serrano. Later on, Aiko wants director Laurice Guillen to train Andre. The actress said she eventually wants to work with Andre. That is her dream project, and she might be the one to produce that.
Martina, on the other hand, has no interest to be an actress. Aiko thinks her daughter will be more interested in politics because she likes talking to people.
Meanwhile, Aiko said that although she has been in the industry for long, there are still dream roles she hasn't fulfilled yet.
"You know as an actress, you have to reinvent yourself at kahit gaano kasimple at gaano kakumplikado yung role ng isang artista you have to give life to it."
Aiko wants to play a role of an insane person because she hasn't tried that yet. Also, she wants an offbeat role such as a contrabida.
Aiko wants the chance to work with Nora Aunor in the future. She already worked with Vilma Santos and Maricel Soriano. If ever she will be given the chance to work with Nora, she wants it to be in a drama genre since that is their forte.
