Sanya Lopez now a household name

Kapuso actress Sanya Lopez seems to go nowhere but up in her pursuit of a bright showbiz career. With two current lead roles on GMA-7 and a stellar social media presence, she is definitely now a household name in the country. 

Despite all these, the 24-year-old actress keeps her feet on the ground. When asked where she attributes her success, Sanya thanks the Almighty for the continued grace and the talent given to her as well as the trust from her management, “Siyempre po si God. Sa kanya kasi ako humihingi ng guidance palagi at lahat ng ito alam ko siya ang may gawa. Pati na rin sa GMA and sa GMA Artist Center sa tiwala na binibigay nila sa akin.”

On screen, Sanya gives life to the colorful and very relatable character of Yaya Melody in the top-rating primetime series ‘First Yaya.’ She also stars in the weekend fantasy show ‘Agimat ng Agila’ as the headstrong and compassionate Maya Lagman. Both portrayals are gaining positive feedback from Kapuso viewers and netizens. 

Meanwhile, she also marked another milestone as she reached 10 million followers on Tiktok this week. She admitted that it still came as a surprise when she learned of the tremendous increase of her subscribers to her Tiktok account, @sanya_lopez.

“Nagulat po ako nung sabihin nila na marami na akong followers sa TikTok. Hindi ko po expected talaga na mangyayari ito. It started lang talaga na ine-enjoy ko lang yung paggawa ng TikTok, so I’m happy to see na nag-e-enjoy sila.”

In addition, she wishes to use the digital space to be able to provide good vibes and inspiration to social media users, “Sabi nga nila kapag enjoy ka sa ginagawa mo, mas maganda ang kalalabasan ng TikTok na ginawa mo. Gusto ko lang mag-enjoy at mabigyan ng saya ang mga sumusuporta sa akin at makita nila ang other side of Sanya.”

Catch Sanya in ‘First Yaya’ weeknights, at 8:00 PM, on GMA Telebabad and in ‘Agimat ng Agila’ every Saturday, 7:15 PM.
