ERICH GONZALES FIRST caught our attention when she joined the 2005 Star Circle National Teen Quest reality talent contest where she emerged Grand Questor. Naging sunud-sunod ang mga projects ni Erich after winning in SCQ. She appeared on several ABS-CBN shows like Mga Anghel na Walang Langit, Calla Lily, Sana Maulit Muli, Star Magic Presents: Abt Ur Luv, Ur Lyf 2, Your Song: Muntik na Kitang Minahal, Ligaw na Bulaklak and Pieta.
Erich finally gets the biggest break in her acting career as she topbills the series Katorse with Ejay Falcon and newcomer Xian Lim. Katorse will tackle relevant issues that concern today’s generation like teenage pregnancy.
Katorse is the television remake of the 1979 movie na pinagbidahan nina Dina Bonnevie, Gabby Concepcion at Alfie Anido. In the series, Erich plays Nene, a 14-year old teenager who gets pregnant. Erich is thankful that she was given the wonderful opportunity to star in the series. “I feel so blessed,” she enthused.
Pero sa kabila ng magandang takbo ng kanyang career, hindi naman naiwasan ni Erich na maiyak when she talked about her father who recently passed away noong mag-guest siya sa The Buzz. Sinabi ni Erich that she received an email that informed her about her father’s death. She wished na sana raw ay nagkaroon pa siya ng maraming oras na makasama ang kanyang ama. “Whatever happened, father ko pa rin siya,” she said.
Here’s wishing all the best for Erich.
Kaibigan, usap tayo muli!
