From being one of the pioneers of the now-defunct long-running gag show Goin’ Bulilit, we’ve witnessed how Trina Legaspi, who’s more popularly known by her screen name “Hopia”, has evolved into becoming one of the most bankable actresses of her generation, as she takes on various roles in some Kapamilya programs, such as in Ipaglaban Mo.
Avid viewers of ABS-CBN have probably seen her twice in the said crime-drama anthology series – in the “Putol” episode with Albie Casiño in 2017 and in the “Bugaw” episode in 2016. And this coming Saturday, June 27, we’re about to see her again on the show as she top-bills its “Tiyuhin”, wherein she will play the role of Patricia, a girl seduced by his uncle-in-law while being under his and her aunt’s care.
Trina is actually already 26 years old in real life! In fact, she just celebrated her quarantine birthday last June 13 at their abode, as seen in a series of her posts on Instagram! Aside from that, we’re also able to find out a few more things about her, such as her being a financial advisor for a renowned insurance company.
Going through her posts, we’re able to notice how a certified adventure junkie and globetrotter she is as we’re able to see photos of her travels in and out of the country with her beloved family and long-time boyfriend Ryan Jarina. Besides, we also couldn’t get enough of the adorable pictures of her with her seven cute shih tzu babies, which she named Jacky, Uno, Timmy, Bunso, Tanya, Tubby, and Baby Girl.
Of course, it can’t also be denied that she indeed bloomed into a gorgeous young woman from being that cute and chubby girl in her Goin’ Bulilit days. Browse through this gallery to see her beautiful and incredible transformation through the years!
Catch Trina, along with Allen Dizon, Jenny Miller, and Maila Gumila, on Ipaglaban Mo this coming Saturday on Kapamilya Channel!
