Sanya Lopez is one of the most-sought after actresses in the GMA Network today. But aside from her iconic roles on television, did you know the “beauty queen” side of this 21-year-old actress? Yes, you read that right. Before she even entered the limelight, Sanya Lopez entered the spotlight when she joined prestigious beauty pageants.
According to a report published by GMA News, the promising actress entered beauty pageants twice when she was still in Bulacan. In 2013, Sanya Lopez joined “Reyna ng Bulacan” and in 2014, the actress competed for the title of “Reyna ng Aliwan.”
Is the rising star still planning to pursue a career as a titleholder?
After having a taste of the glitz and glam of showbiz industry, it seems like the actress is willing to stay for good. Even though her confidence was molded by her beauty pageants experience, her heart belongs to the show business.
In an interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal, Sanya claimed that she has been pushed to join “Binibining Pilipinas,” but the actress has other things in mind:
“Meron pa ngang tina-tag ako noon about sa screening ng Binibining Pilipinas. Pero feeling ko kasi, hindi pa ako ready, hindi ko pa ramdam na dapat na akong mag-join. Siguro pag 24 or 25 na ako, baka handang-handa na ako mag-join physically and emotionally. Gusto ko kasi na ‘pag sumali ako, yung handang-handa na ako at gustung-gusto ko na.”
In spite of the constant persistence of her supporters, Sanya Lopez claimed that she has other priorities in the present, so beauty pageants would have to take a backseat. For the 21-year-old “Haplos” actress, she’s focused more on her thriving showbiz career.
After all, she has many shots at beauty pageants, but she only has one chance to step up her game in the competitive Philippine showbiz industry. During the interview, she was quoted as saying:
“Ngayon kasi, mas gusto ko munang bigyan ng oras yung showbiz career ko. One at a time, career muna, and then yung dream ko na maging title holder ng isang beauty pageant.”
