As Cassandra “Cassie” Mondragon and Margaret “Marga” Bartolome (Andrea Brillantes) celebrate their sweet sixteen bashes in Kadenang Ginto, Francine Diaz who gives life to Cassie’s character marks her birthday too! In line with this, here are some facts you will surely love to know about her.
She grew up clingy to her father
In an interview on Magandang Buhay months ago, her father JM Diaz revealed that Francine was fondly called in their family as “baby ‘ama” because Francine always loves to say “sama” and really be wherever her father goes.
She is almost the breadwinner of her family
Although her father is capable of earning money for their family, Francine now hugely contributes to their family’s finances with her career now on the rise. Still on the same Magandang Buhay, her father JM shared that there was even a time when the money Francine earned from doing a commercial, was the only money that helped them pay the hospitalization bill of Francine’s brother.
She loves to read books
One of Francine’s most undeniable interests is reading books. This was according to an exclusive interview of ABS-CBN.com Entertainment with Beauty Gonzalez during a press conference.
She is always very quiet on the set of Kadenang Ginto
This is another fact Beauty revealed in the same interview. In support of Beauty’s statement, we can recall Francine has already revealed before on Kapamilya Chat that she is an introvert, which clearly explains why she’s mostly quiet.
As seen in these snaps, Francine celebrated her birthday with Beauty, who plays her mother Romina Andrada-Mondragon in Kadenang Ginto! They celebrated by having an intimate dinner together with co-star Bea Borres, Beauty’s daughter Olivia and husband Norman Crisologo.
