LOOK: Xander Ford shares a moment with ‘lodi’ celeb crush Andrea Brillantes
Since his comeback from taking a short break, Xander Ford has been on a roll. Now, it looks like things are getting better for him.
On Instagram, the YouTube star scored big as he posed for a photo with his supposed celebrity crush, Andrea Brillantes. Not hiding his glee, Ford wrote on the caption, “When you see your lodi. Crush papicture!” (When you see your idol and crush, you ask for a photo to be taken with her.)
The 14-year-old actress is known for playing the titular role of the 2013 remake of the 1980s drama series “Annaliza”, which also starred Patrick Garcia and Denise Laurel. She recently took part in the movie “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes” starring Angelica Panganiban and Judy Ann Santos.
Ford, formerly known as Marlou Arizala, rose to fame as part of the boy band Hasht5, but left the group to pursue a solo career. He then shocked netizens when he underwent surgery that completely changed his appearance.
Previously, Ford created quite a stir in social media when he briefly disappeared and could not be located; he re-appeared quickly to explain that he only wanted to take a break. He has also recently showcased a new look, sporting longer hair, which again roused reactions from netizens. JB
