Mini Bio (1)

The only daughter of actors 'Gabby Concepcion' and 'Sharon Cuneta', Kristina Cassandra Concepcion or simply known as K.C. to the entire Philippines has always been considered a showbiz royalty, even recognizing her as the nation's "princess" given the fact the her parents were the most promising reel couple back in the 80s admired by millions of fans all throughout the country. The on-screen chemistry later became a real-life fairy tale wedding in 1985 which soon bore their one and only daughter. Her parents' union did not last long which eventually ended in separation only four years later after the grand church wedding. Sharon Cuneta continued her acting career and would soon become the highest paid actress and commercial endorser up to this date while K.C.'s father Gabby, opted to fly to the United States in 1995 and permanently resided in California.

All throughout her young life, although she hasn't been officially counted as an artist, Concepcion has always been loved by the media and many of her parents' fans. She has made few uncredited appearances during her mother's concerts and television shows but it was not until in early 2003 when K.C. explored the world of advertising, becoming the spokesperson of major products in the country. She became one of the most sought after commercial endorsers both in television and print ads. On that same year, ABS-CBN Network televised what would be K.C.'s introduction to the society as a young lady, celebrating her 18th birthday which became the highest rated TV special that season.

People were anticipating for her grand entrance to the world that her parents were once loved but instead of accepting multiple movie and television deals, K.C. flew to France in 2003 to start her college life, taking up International Corporate Communications with a minor in Theatre Arts at the prestigious American University of Paris. In 2007, four years later, K.C. was joined by her mother, Sharon, her stepfather, politician Francisco Pangilinan, and younger sisters, Frankie and Miel (her mother's daughters with Pangilinan) as she marched for her college graduation.

Instead of pursuing her studies in the United States which she originally thought of doing after her stint in Paris, Concepcion went back home to the Philippines and made her official acting debut. It was in early 2008 when she wowed fans with a special number for her mother's birthday concert, a TV special featuring her last days in Paris, and her first ever television drama special, an episode for Maalaala Mo Kaya.

At 23, K.C. Concepcion has made her own mark in the business and has maintained a good image which made her a role model for the Filipino youth.
