Andi Eigenmann, born Andrea Nicole Guck Eigenmann on June 25, 1990, is one of the most sought after actresses of her generation. She hails from a prominent showbiz clan, with actors Mark Gil and Jaclyn Jose as parents. She is related to some of the country’s most respected actors including Eddie Mesa (grandfather), Rosemarie Gil (grandmother), Michael de Mesa (uncle) and Cherie Gil (aunt). Her half-brothers, Sid Lucero and Gabby Eigenmann, are also actors.
She started her showbiz career by playing support in the Kapamilya afternoon soap opera, Prinsesa ng Banyera, in 2007. The following year, she joined the reality show Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition Plus, as a “house player.” However, she opted for voluntary exit after 53 days due to severe homesickness.
The biggest break in Andi’s career came when she was cast to portray the title characters in the fantaserye Rod Santiago’s Agua Bendita in 2010. The series was a huge success and made Andi a household name.
After Agua Bendita, Andi starred in Your Song Presents: Andi, an 8-episode anthology showcasing her acting range. She then topbilled Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin with Coco Martin and Maja Salvador. However, her character was abruptly “killed” in the series due to Andi’s unexpected pregnancy. She later revealed that the father of her child is newcomer Albie Casiño who refused to take responsibility without a paternity test. Andi decided to give birth and raise the child without help from Casiño.
After giving birth, Andi was cast in Kahit Puso’y Masugatan in 2012, where she portrayed a more mature role. She then starred in Jim Fernandez’s Galema: Anak Ni Zuma, which reunited her with Agua Bendita co-star, Matteo Guidicelli. She is currently seen in the top-rating Kapamilya fantaserye, Dyesebel starring Anne Curtis.
Apart from television, Andi Eigenmann starred in a slew of films including Mamarazzi, Shake Rattle & Roll XII, Pridyider, A Secret Affair, Coming Soon, Momzillas, When the Love is Gone and Bob Ong’s ABNKKBSNPLAko? The Movie.
