Solenn Heussaff was one of the celebrity inductees of the 2017 Walk of Fame Philippines in Eastwood City.
She gets the star seven years after she first joined showbiz, and starred in more than ten shows of GMA-7.
However, she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) after the induction rites last November 21 that she was surprised upon hearing the news.
Laughing, she said, "Actually, I was here two weeks before they called me, for Taste Buddies. They called me and said I'm gonna get a star and I said like, 'Really? Di ba, Nora Aunor's there? Why am I there?'
"Tapos yun sabi nila totoo. I'm really, of course, blessed. So happy. I also researched to see who are the other people here.
"Ang dami pala so it's such an honor for me and to be here tonight with people like Karen Davila, it's really amazing."
Solenn got the star for the TV category. She believes that her take on the iconic role of Cassiopea in Encantadia was a key factor why the board of trustees chose her to be an inductee.
"Encantadia was bigger than anyone thought it would be and I'm so blessed to be part of that show.
"Maybe I'm just trying to do what I can do and I'm learning more all the time, I never stopped learning like I never thought I reached my peak.
"For me, I'm still a student of this industry and I'm still game to learn so much more."
WISH FOR ALYAS ROBIN HOOD. Meanwhile, Solenn's teleserye Alyas Robin Hood Book 2 is set to end its run this Friday, November 24.
According to the 32-year-old actress, she's very happy to be part of the second season, which she co-stars with Dingdong Dantes, Andrea Torres, and Ruru Madrid.
That's why she wished, "Well, hopefully may season three!"
She continued, "It was a very fun show to be part of. Everyone's so professional on set.
"It's my first time to work with Dingdong, first time to work with Andrea, Ruru naman sanay na, we're always together. Different bonding and different type of show as well from Encantadia."
At the beginning of the show, it was believed that her Iris character will form a love triangle with Dingdong's Pepe and his fiance Venus, played by Andrea.
However, it seemed like this was not highlighted anymore on the show since Iris found a partner-in-crime with Ruru's character.
"Di ko alam, I guess they were trying to see also who the people will like more and, of course, yung tandem nila ni Andrea, sobrang ganda yung chemistry nila.
"I'm happy din na tinuloy nila because parang Venus is the love of Pepe's life.
"I had my own thing going. I really like my character, super fun si Iris, may pagkakwela, may pagkamaldita, pero mabait na tao. It's very fun to play, and different from Cassiopea."
Solenn just recently renewed her contract with GMA-7.
However, she plans to take a rest from doing teleseryes in order to focus on doing movies.
She divulged, "For now, I don’t know yet. I think we're just gonna wait for next year kasi ang daming teleseryeng magsastart.
"For now, tuloy pa rin yung Taste Buddies and yung All-Star Videoke, we're having a second season because we're doing very well.
"I have three movies I'm shooting next year. That would be fun, very different roles.
"I think by January, I can talk na. Parang I'd rather not jinx it now. We're supposed to shoot this year pero they moved it next year na."
