Meet Claire Ruiz, the gorgeous and talented star who plays the role of younger version of Doña Catalina Silverio-Pacheco (Jean Saburit) in Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Los Bastardos.
Claire’s first appearance on television was when she auditioned in Pilipinas Got Talent back in 2010. She performed as Hannah Montana, the titular character in the defunct Disney Channel musical comedy series. Claire impersonated the character, famously played by Miley Cyrus, and performed the song titled “The Climb”. Although judges Ai-Ai Delas Alas, Kris Aquino and Freddie M. Garcia all gave her a “yes” in their votes after her performance, she was not able to make it into the talent search’s live semi-finals.
Like what they say, setbacks are just set-ups for a comeback. Claire continued to pursue her passion as an artist by going through another talent search and when she succeeded in a few minor roles, she started to gain recognition when she starred as Joey Acosta in 2012’s hit daytime drama titled Be Careful With My Heart. Since then, Claire constantly appeared in a number of Maalaala Mo Kaya episodes. She recently appeared in the MMK episodes “Family Portrait” with Christopher De Leon and “Wheelchair” with Enchong Dee.
Now, as she officially become part of the roster of artists in the Kapamilya network as a Star Magic talent, Claire continues to prove that she has what it takes to make a mark in the industry. This year, she joined Los Bastardos cast portraying the young Catalina, who experienced many painful tragedies that eventually became the root of her character’s thirst for revenge.
With her great talent and her gorgeous looks, Claire might be the next leading lady to watch out for! Just look at her captivating photos in this gallery.
