Sanya Lopez is just getting started

Luck may have scored Sanya Lopez the break she had been waiting for after getting discovered by The Master Showman German “Kuya Germs” Moreno, but her hard work brought her to stardom.
She was in the audience in one of the GMA Studios as she watched her brother, Kapuso heartthrob and one of the leading men in the current primetime series Meant To Be, Jak Roberto, perform in Walang Tulugan five years ago. But fast forward to 2017, she is now a household name on Philippine TV for breathing life to Danaya, one of the iconic Sang’gres in Encantadia.
Following her stardom, Sanya went to Vancouver for the “Kapu-show: Encantahan at Saya sa Canada” last May 12 with her on-screen partner, Rocco Nacino. This show is one for the books as this is also her first trip abroad. With a growing fan base, she is just getting the hang of being recognized as “Danaya” in public so it still came to her as a surprise when the same thing happened in Canada.
A flattered Sanya excitedly shared, “One of the memories that I took with me from Canada ay yung ‘pag nasa labas kami, may bumabati sa aking ‘Danaya,’ tapos saka nila maaalalang ‘Ay, Sanya nga pala!’”
With the warm welcome she received from fans, she became more excited to perform on the show. Sanya got too busy preparing for it and had little time going around Canada. When asked about her travel plans, she faintly smiled and admitted that she failed to see famous tourist spots.
“First time ko talaga out of the country, so I was really looking forward to seeing everything. Nasa plano talaga namin na makapag-Stanley Park, but unfortunately umuulan noong nandoon kami. Pero ‘yung mere fact na naramdaman ko ‘yung lamig, nakapag lakad-lakad sa daan, and went to different restaurants, na-excite talaga ako!”
However, the reward came in shortly after the Vancouver crowd showed her love and brought in huge banners while screaming out her name.
Now that she’s home, Sanya can’t help but spill her plans on coming back to Canada. “Everything about the trip was an instant favorite kasi eh. Pero gusto ko pa sanang ma-explore ulit ang Vancouver, and mas matagal. Sinabi ko sa sarili ko, babalik-balikan ko ang Canada because I also gained new friends there.”
Now that Encantadia has ended, Sanya wants to show her deep gratitude to everyone in the show — from Director Mark Reyes to fellow actors, as well as the production team. Apart from it opening a lot of new opportunities for her, she was also able to prove her prowess in acting and found a new family along the way. She is now preparing for more challenges in her career, and she vows to face them all head on.
