Netizens Agree That As Sang'gre Danay In 'Encantadia', A Star Is Born In Sanya Lopez Who Exceeded All Viewer Expectations

IF THERE’S someone who greatly benefited from being part of the “Encantadia 2016” cast, it’s no one else but newcomer Sanya Lopez. From being a virtual unknown, she suddenly gained fame playing the role of Danaya in GMA-7’s hit primetime show.

Whereas her other co-stars get sporadic negative criticism every now and then, the response of viewers and netizens to Sanya on social media are all favorable. Most people think she is quite a revelation in this breakthrough role for her. “Nakakatuwa nga kasi before the show started airing, I got a lot of bashing at ano raw ba ang K ko, sa dinami-dami rami ng ibang Kapuso stars, para mapasama sa mga Sang’gre,” she says. “Now, I feel vindicated that after mapanood nila ako sa first few months ng ‘Encantadia’, it seems maraming na-surprise at napatunayan ko sa kanila may kakayahan naman ako sa pag-arte.”

And not only that, we heard that Regal Entertainment is now interested in signing Sanya up to an exclusive movie contract since Mother Lily certainly knows how to spot a potential star when she sees one. Sanya’s love life also became more interesting now that she’s being linked to Rocco Nacino, who plays Aquil, her love interest in “Encantadia”. They make regular exchanges in their respective Twitter accounts that fans find intriguing since they seem to be like flirting with each other. Well, there’s nothing bad about that since Sanya has no boyfriend while Rocco has been loveless since Lovi Poe broke up with him.
