Barbie Imperial’s journey to become TV’s newest leading lady



She was able to capture everyone’s hearts with her dainty and fragile façade and show-stopping allure as one of the teen housemates of Pinoy Big Brother 737. Staying inside the house for a just a short period didn’t give us an ample time to get to know the “Doll Along the Riles” who has now bloomed into a promising young actress we should watch out for.


Barbie Imperial debuted her acting career by starring in three Maalaala Mo Kaya episodes, in which one of those narrated her inspiring story of hardship and perseverance before stepping at the door of show business. In the “Riles” episode, we saw that behind her naïve look is a fierce damsel in distress who endured a lot of challenges in life and triumphed.


The 19-year-old actress continued to stun us with her sensual and daring portrayals in Ipaglaban Mo as a poor and defenseless rape and molestation victim and proved that she can keep pace with seasoned actors, such as Enzo Pineda, Alex Medina, and Luis Alandy.


Her most recent appearance in Wanspanataym Presents Gelli in a Bottle attested that she could also be a kontrabida as she plays the campus “It Girl” Rachel, who is the third wheel in the lovestory of Ronnie Alonte and Loisa Andalio’s characters.


After starring in short-form television narratives, Barbie finally got her biggest break as she’s about to capture our hearts as the fun-loving and optimistic young career woman who will give hope and light in the dark world of JM de Guzman’s Adrian Oldivar in the highly anticipated afternoon love serye Precious Hearts Romances Presents Araw Gabi.
