ANDREW E admits he’s no longer as visible today as during his heyday in the 1990s when he was doing hit songs and movies, one after another.

“But I’m glad hindi naman ako totally nawawala sa eksena,” he says. “I’m now 52 years old and I can say I’m still around. Napapasali rin ako sa TV shows, like ‘Dolce Amore’ as the father of Liza Soberano, as a judge in ‘Showtime’ and in ‘I Can Hear Your Voice’ as a sing-vestigator. Nakagawa rin ako ng isang movie six years ago, ‘Raketeros’, and now, heto ang ‘Sanggano’ and I’m happy to be reunited with Janno Gibbs and Dennis Padilla, and our director, Al Tantay. We’re all thankful kay Boss Vic del Rosario ng Viva for giving us another chance na magpasaya ng tao.”

He plays Andy in “Sanggano”. “Best friends kami nina Dennis, who plays Dondon, and Janno, who plays Johnny,” he adds. “Lagi kaming napapatrobol. Pero si Janno pala, anak ng isang mayamang negosyante and when his father died, minana niya ang mga negosyo nito. Hiningi niya ang tulong namin ni Dennis in managing the businesses na naiwan ng father niya. Sa hacienda nila, ako ang pinakilala niyang si Johnny kasi ayaw niya doon sa mabibigat na mga responsibilidad na minana niya.”

This leads to some complications. “Siyempre, mga poor boy lang kami, at nang makatikim kami ng buhay-mayaman, biglang nagbago ang lahat lalo na nga’t surrounded na kami by sexy, gorgeous women like Louise de los Reyes, Cindy Miranda and Vanessa Wright na siyang leading ladies namin. Tapos, pumasok pa si Manoy Eddie Garcia na nagawa pang i-shoot ito bago niya tayo iniwan. He plays Mr. Russell, na gustong makuha ang haciendang minana ni Janno para gawin itong casino complex at 'yung buong province nila ay magding gambling capital ng bansa. 'Yung buong movie, puno ng katatawanan that will cater even to Gen X and millennial audiences, so abangan nyo pagbukas nito sa mga sinehan on September 4.”
