During the Making Mega with Gabbi Garcia press conference on Friday, July 21, Inside Showbiz asked Gabbi if she feels pressured to be lined up with Kapamilya stars. “Apart from being pressured, it’s more of giving pride to my network. It’s more of representing my own network,” answered Gabbi.

Being the only Kapuso actress in Mega‘s big project, the 18-year-old actress says that she feels proud carrying the name of her network and doesn’t think of competing with others. “I’m setting aside the pressure, because it’s the chance of our network to do fashion because I’m not only representing myself, I’m representing GMA. GMA is on my shoulders every time I go out. It’s more of I’m proud of my network [than feeling pressured],” she added.

Gabbi also shared how she reacted the first time she heard about the Making Mega offer, “We were at the Manila X Music and Fashion Festival [when I found out about the news]. I was just with my friends and it was not work at all! And then Sir Archie [Carrasco] was there. And when I met him, he was like ‘Gab, we’re interested in getting you for Making Mega.‘ And then I was like ‘What? Really? Ako po talaga?’ I was so surprised, I really didn’t expect it! I didn’t expect for them to have the interest to get me.”


Editorial Director of Rainier P. Dagala also revealed why they selected Gabbi to be on the cover of the first printed copy of the online brand, “[The first printed issue with Gabbi Garcia] is a marriage of both Mega and We incorporated the core values of beauty, relevance, sophistication, and grounded dapat sya in fashion because that’s what the magazine really stands for. Kaya si Gabbi ‘yung kinuha since this is a print cover, we want someone who is technologically savvy, someone who knows how to maximize social media to promote herself, to promote her projects, to promote what she stands for as a person. Kaya si Gabbi po ‘yung napili namin.”
