Andrea Elizabeth Eugenio Torres (born May 4, 1990) is a Filipina actress, host, dancer, underwear designer, and commercial model. She is currently an exclusive contract artist of GMA Network.

Life and career[edit]

She was first seen as one of the contestants in ABS-CBN's teen-oriented reality show Qpids in 2005. In 2008, she transferred to ABS-CBN's rival network GMA and became one of the hosts of the now-defunct youth-oriented magazine show, Ka-Blog! She was also part of some drama and hit movies such as You To Me Are Everything, a Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera starrer, and Shake, Rattle & Roll X.[3][4]

When Ka-Blog! went off the air, Torres concentrated for a while in her studies, taking up communication arts at the University of Santo Tomas.[4] On March 8, 2011, Torres signed a three-year exclusive contract with GMA Network.[5] Two months later, she landed a part in the afternoon drama series Blusang Itim.

It helped that she had joined extracurricular activities while in school. She performed during assemblies, acted in plays, attended leadership conventions, even volunteered to read Bible verses during Masses. She was also in the volleyball team. When she was younger she took up ballet lessons. She tried everything that could help her express herself as an artist.

In 2012, Torres, together with Mikael Daez, reprised the roles of Cecilia Fulgencio and Carlos Miguel Altamonte, respectively, for Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga, a 2012 remake based on the 2002 popular teledrama of the same name. The said roles were originally portrayed by Tanya Garcia and Dingdong Dantes, respectively.[6]

In 2013, Torres starred in the romantic comedy With a Smile as Isay, a rural lady who has a passion for cooking.[7] In 2014, she starred in the fantasy-romance drama Ang Lihim ni Annasandra as the title character who is cursed to transform into an aswang every night.[8] She also starred in the 2016 television series The Millionaire's Wife as Louisa, a single mother who decides to marry a rich, old man in exchange for financial help for her son suffering from juvenile diabetes.[9] In the action-drama television series Alyas Robin Hood, Torres played Venus, alongside Dingdong Dantes and Megan Young.[10][11]

Torres appeared on the cover of FHM Philippines' December 2014 issue.[12][13][14] She was also voted No. 2 in FHM Philippines' 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2015 poll, and No. 15 in the 2016 poll.[15][16][17][18] In 2015, she published her coffee table photo-book titled Andrea: Roadtrip.[18][19][20]

She is part of Bubble Gang since 2012.
