No, she’s not Toni Gonzaga. She is Arianne Bautista!
Budding Kapuso actress-host Arianne Bautista admitted to GMANetwork.com that people often mistake her as the Kapamilya actress, “I always get comments that I look like her. Actually, compliment siya for me kasi maraming ina-idolize siya. Ayon, parang nasanay na ako.”
Arianne said she has already met the Gonzaga sisters. “Parang nakakatuwa kasi parang kilala na niya ako. Sinabi pa niya, ‘Ano ka ba! Sabihin mo sa kanila [na] mas maganda ka at saka mas bata ka.’ Gina-ganun niya ako so at least mabait siya sa akin and [also] Alex.”
She has also been invited to commercial castings because of her similarities with the Ultimate Multimedia Queen. The Kapuso artist explained, “May mga agents ako na kinu-contact ako na, ‘Arianne, punta ka kasi Toni Gonzaga peg ganyan-ganyan. One time I did pero hindi din naman ako nakuha sa commercial. Never pa naman na parang, ‘Kukunin kita kasi kamukha ka ni Toni.”
“Nakukuha naman ako because of my acting (laughs). May nakukuha akong projects kasi kilala na nila ako, ‘yung agents tapos kilala na ako ng caster,” she added. Arianne has starred in TV commercials for Pantene, Modess, Blackberry, and her most famous to-date is Cadbury.
GMA is grooming the 22-year-old artist as an actress-host, “I love to host [at] enjoy ako mag-host lalo na sa mga masa. Gusto ko ‘yung mga barangay kasi ‘yung personality ko [ay] bubbly [at] kalog. Ngayon, more on hosting ako pero at least on the side, I still have some acting [projects] pero gusto ko pa rin talagang i-improve ‘yung acting ko since hindi pa ako sanay.”
Through commercials and print ads that she has done, her talent agent tapped her to audition for GMA Artist Center. That opened her world to show business, “Kasi ako talaga, kung may opportunity, go!”
