MANILA, Philippines — Hollywood star Hailee Steinfeld is scheduled to return to the Philippines this week for a fan meet. 

In MCA Music’s Twitter account, the record company announced that the actress-singer with Filipino blood will be spending her time with her fans in a mall in Quezon City. 

“Philippines, you've got a Fridate cos' your all-time fave @HaileeSteinfeld is coming back this week for a special Fan Meet at @eastwoodmall Open Park on Sept 06 (Fri), 4PM. Event Access is open to all (depending on max venue capacity),” MCA Music wrote. 

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.
