Finally landing a lead role after seven years in the biz — and in the midst of a pandemic — is a feat not lost on Adrianna So, the star of the upcoming girls’ love series “Pearl Next Door.”
“This is all too surreal. I never imagined this could happen,” So told INQUIRER.net. “I dreamed of it, yes, but I didn’t really think it was possible.”
“So I feel very honored but at the same time very pressured. I just hope I can live up to the expectations.”
It was through The IdeaFirst Company that she got her breakout role in the hit and widely praised boys’ love (BL) series “Gameboys,” where she portrayed charming BFF and fan-dubbed “bi queen” Pearl Gatdula who made sure that #LoveWins for #CaiReel (Elijah Canlas as Cairo and Kokoy De Santos as Gavreel).
IdeaFirst will soon deliver one of the first GL series in the country this October. As with “Gameboys,” it is secretive of the release date; fans’ only clue so far is that it could air on a Friday. The series is directed by Ivan Andrew Payawal of “Gameboys” and written by Keavy Vicente.
“Pearl deserves to have her own series. There’s more to her than being a shipper,” Vicente told INQUIRER.net of the decision to create “PND.”
Who is your girl, Pearl?
“PND” revealed its cast last August, comprised of Iana Bernardez, Phillip Hernandez, Rachel Coates and Cedrick Juan.
The whole team has been tight-lipped about details of the show. So could only say, “[You’re] going to see different layers of Pearl for sure.”
