Eda Nolan (born Eda Kristy Cabilan on December 14, 1988) is a Filipino actress, best known for her role as Junniper, the shy, 'promdi' girl, in ABS-CBN's sitcoms, Let's Go and Gokada Go. Nolan has been a member of Star Magic, ABS CBN's circle of homegrown talents, since 2006.


Nolan first started as a contestant in ABS-CBN’s reality-based talent search Star Circle Quest: Season 2 in 2004. She was part of the Top 25, but never made it to the finals. Eventually, Eda was asked to audition for Star Magic and still she didn't get picked. When she was about to leave ABS-CBN she met Mr. M. Talked to her and asked her to come back after graduation.[1]

After high school graduation, Eda went back to Manila to undergo training and workshop in acting, singing and dancing. That lasted for six months. After the training, Eda patiently waited for an offer. Getting bored and feeling it was not just her time yet, she decided to go back to Cebu. And just when she made up her mind to pursue her studies, she got a call asking her to audition for the sitcom Let's Go. This time, luckily she got picked.[1]
