INTERVIEW: ALLAN HERNANDEZ
PHOTOGRAPHY: XANDER ANGELES OF EDGE OF LIGHT
You’re the girl who did that yummy dance to ringback in one cell network TV ad. Now you’re famous.
Yes, that was a commercial for Smart. Although of course I would like to think that my TV hosting for MTB: Ang Saya Saya did it for me as well. But, yes, that ad was big. Just imagine that scene where I was just a girl in a coffee shop and then seconds later I became a ledge dancer! Plus, that was my first-ever TV commercial. I had never actually done VTRs for possible TV ad gigs prior to that.
Let’s go back to the first time—how did you land the spot in that ad?
I don’t know. (laughs) Maybe they wanted a new face, young, someone who could dance…I just found myself in the final casting and then the next day, it was shooting day.
