In an exclusive interview with LionhearTV, the new First Yaya, actress Sanya Lopez reflected on what contributed to her rise to stardom.
She also noted that she had to work hard and pray to get to where she is now.
“Siguro po masasabi ko lang talaga, tyaga, sipag po, tsaka yung galingan mo lang sa lahat ng ginagawa mo. Of course, di po mawawala yung dasal,” said Sanya.
Sanya also added that she put every ounce of effort into her work and advised others to exert their best effort when working.
“Ganon po, yung wag kang mawalan ng pag-asa ipagpatuloy mo lang yung ginagawa mo. At galingan mo ng galingan,” said Sanya.
Sanya was also happy with the unexpected break and notes that she tries to excel in her role.
“Nakakatuwa syempre po. Wala po kong ginawa kung di magpasalamat na lang sa lahat ng binibigay sa kin. At ginagalingan ko na lang po talaga kasi parang ito yung mga bagay na hindi ko naman ina-akalang sakin pero ibinigay,” said Sanya.
She then thanked GMA Network for her role as First Yaya.
“And sa ngayon po siguro wala na kong masabi kung di salamat po talaga. I’m very very thankful lang po,” said Sanya.
Sanya started her career in 2012 when the late German Moreno discovered her on the set of Walang Tulugan with the Master Showman as the sister of their mainstay Jak Roberto. She then starred in multiple GMA Network productions such as Encantadia (2016-2017), Haplos, and Cain at Abel. Now, Sanya takes the lead role of Yaya Melody for GMA Network’s new teleserye, First Yaya.
