Although she’s already one of the most popular TikTok stars in the country with 1.2 million followers, Margaux Montana was still surprised that she was asked to join the talent group Squad Plus.
“At first, I was nervous kasi may pagkamahiyain po ako. Masaya din po kasi may mga bagong friends,” she said during the online press conference for the launch of the new batch of Squad Plus, last May 3. (At first, I was nervous because I am a bit shy. But I am happy that I now have new friends.)
Montana went full time in showbiz after clinching her first stint as a commercial model in 2018. She is now part of the teleserye “Huwag Kang Mangamba” where she got to meet another talent group, the Gold Squad, composed of Kyle Echarri, Andrea Brillantes, Francine Diaz and Seth Fedelin. Of the four, she found Brillantes amusing.
“Mabait po silang lahat. Kagaya din ng sinabi ni Kean (Johnson), hindi ko rin makakalimutan si Andrea. Magla-lunch kami, tinanong niya kami kung kailan ang birthday namin at kung ano ang zodiac sign namin. Nakakatuwa siya,” she recalled.
(They are all nice. Like what Kean said, I can’t forget Andrea. We’re about to take lunch when she asked us about our birthdays and zodiac signs. She’s fun to be with.)
Montana also previously ventured into the Musical.ly app in 2017 where she created content that viewers demanded. There’s a dance video she recently did on TikTok which raked in 4.5 million views.
Montana is open to a singing career. She admits that she admires singer Moira Dela Torre. JB
