Young actress Heaven Paralejo has really come a long way since her remarkable stint in the reality show Pinoy Big Brother Lucky 7 in 2016. In fact, she just got her biggest break so far in the upcoming drama series Bagong Umaga after she’s chosen to be one of its headliners.
And while we’re waiting to see her take on the role of the ever-palaban Tisay Magbanua, let’s take a look back on her impressive run as a bankable Kapamilya actress through the years!
Dubbed as “The Mommy's Angel of Makati,” her ticket to the industry was being a PBB housemate. It can be recalled that she went on a voluntary exit to take good care of her mom who had to undergo operation due to cancer. After her short-lived stint, she was given projects after projects through which she’s able to prove that she’s worth all the opportunities bestowed to her.
She had her acting debut in the “Annika Pintasera” narrative of Wansapanataym in 2017. She appeared again in the fantasy anthology series in the following years as she starred in “Jasmin’s Flower Powers” in 2018 and in “Mr. Cute-pido” in 2019.
Heaven also went on to play notable characters in Maalaala Mo Kaya, with her depiction of the young Angeline Aguilar in the “Korona” episode, which was the life story of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, being her first. Two years later, she became part of the heartwarming episode “Jacket” as she played the role of Aurain, the loving daughter of Empoy Marquez’s character. Early this year, she and Joshua made us kilig with their portrayal of real-life couple Tein and Tantan in the “Basketball Court.”
Furthermore, the 20-year-old actress had several appearances in Ipaglaban Mo, namely “Hawig”, “Hadlang”, and “Kutob” episodes, wherein she further astounded us with her commendable dramatic prowess.
She had the wonderful opportunity, as well, to portray the teenage counterpart of the one and only Queen of Philippine Drama Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo in the primetime series Starla last year that arguably gave us the impression that she could be the next in line to the throne!
Her most recent television appearance was in the well-loved family drama Pamilya Ko, wherein she played the role of Maria Corrine Patricia "Macopa" de Jesus, the love interest of one of the Magbunga siblings, Apol Magbunga (Kid Yambao).
And beginning this October 26, catch Heaven in the highly-anticipated series Bagong Umaga as she’s yet to endear us as the adoptive daughter of Nikki Valdez and Keempee De Leon’s characters and the caring adoptive sister of Dodong (Yves Flores). Holding grudges against the affluent people, she’ll definitely fight for what she knows is right and stand up for the people important to her.
