From landing her first major role in the Philippine adaptation of the hit Korean drama series ‘Stairway to Heaven’ to winning numerous acting awards and headlining various top-rating drama series, Barbie has grown to become one of the most versatile actresses of her generation.

“Sobrang nakaka-overwhelm dahil lahat ng friends ko sa show business ay nagparating ng mensahe. Maraming, maraming salamat. Sa mga bosses ko po dito sa GMA, maraming salamat po. I can’t ask for anything more. Thank you so much for this wonderful gift,” she said after signing her contract.

As Barbie looks back on her Kapuso journey, she shared two of her most unforgettable roles, “Isa sa favorite ko ay si Billie Bendiola sa ‘Meant to Be’ dahil ang haba-haba lang ng buhok ko doon. Sa totoong buhay, hindi ko naman naranasan ang pag-agawan ng apat na lalaki pero natupad ng GMA ang dream ko na ‘yon. Sa pelikula naman, ‘yung role ko as Duwokan sa Tuos with the superstar Ms. Nora Aunor… I had so much fun shooting the film, I had so much fun watching it. Nasa-starstruck ako kay Ms. Nora habang pinapanood ko siya, and I also had fun promoting the film.”

GMA Network Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe L. Gozon, Executive Vice President and CFO Felipe S. Yalong, GMA Network Films Inc. President and Programming Consultant to the Chairman and CEO Atty. Annette Gozon-Valdes, Senior Vice President for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable, First Vice President and Head of Regional TV and Synergy Oliver Amoroso, Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara, GMAAC Assistant Vice President and Head for Talent Imaging and Marketing Unit Simoun S. Ferrer, Senior Talent Managers for GMA Artist Center Joy Marcelo, Tracy Garcia and GMA Artist Center Consultant Lawrence Tan showed their full support to Barbie via Zoom, video messages, and their presence at the Marquee Tent of Edsa Shangri-La Hotel.

After top-billing the month-long fresh episodes of Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko: Captain Barbie, she is set to play another out-of-the-box character in the Christmas special of ‘Wish Ko Lang.’
