Eto na! Maraming nagtatanong sa akin, pano daw maging kontrabida na di kailangang maging masama sa totoong buhay para lang magampanan ng makatotohanan. Bata pa ko, eto na gusto ko.. umarte! After being a runner-up in Little Ms. Phillipines in Eat Bulaga 1984, yun na start ng movie career ko sa @viva_films. My first screen test was Baby Tsina as Ms. Vilma Santos' daughter. Had my first acting workshop under the multi-awarded director, the late Direk Marilou-Diaz Abaya. First full length role was Muling Buksan Ang Puso again with ate Vi, first maldita role, followed by Nakagapos Na Puso as young Lorna Tolentino and a lot more movies in Viva where I got my first nomination as Best Child Performer, til my first big break in Mara Clara and the rest is history. Di ako magmamarunong, I just wanna share what I have learned in my 36 years in the business. Can't wait na masabi mong "Moment ko 'to".
