Personal Quote:

"We didn't have a TV then. I really just wanted to act. It was in my blood. When I was home and Mommy was at work, I was free to act as much as I wanted on the street corners." -- recalling her childhood ambition of wanting to be an actress, when her mother was a ticket taker at the Mayfair Theater, Avenida, Manila.
