Fans of Hailee Steinfeld got a pleasant surprise this Tuesday. MCA Music announced that the Hollywood star will be heading back to Manila for a fan meet at Eastwood Mall’s Open Park, scheduled for this Friday. The best part is it’s free and everybody is welcome provided that the venue does not reach maximum capacity, the music label added.
Hailee’s last visit in the country was in 2016. She also spent time with her fans by doing a series of mall shows in the country. In an interview with Boy Abunda that time, Hailee said she was glad to have finally visited the country.
“It’s so incredible to be here. Coming to the Philippines has been a topic of conversation in my family for years, so it’s incredible that my music is what finally brought me out here,” Hailee said.
Hailee began her showbiz career at the age of 10. Her notable films include “Pitch Perfect,” “Romeo & Juliet,” and “Bumble Bee.” She was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her 2010 film “True Grit,” and a Golden Globe Best Actress Nomination for “The Edge of Seventeen.”
Hailee’s maternal grandfather, Ricardo Domasin, was half African-American and half-Filipino from Panglao, Bohol.
