She made noise on the internet when she uploaded a photo of her alongside the two leading men of the Moonstone Trilogy Piolo Pascual and John Lloyd Cruz on her Instagram platform captioned “Confirmed!! Ginawa po akong bampira ni Mateo sa harap ni Noah!! #LaLunaSangre #LaLunaSangreMiyo #throwback”, which resulted to the hullaballoo that she might appear in La Luna Sangre.
The speculations were proven true as she had a cameo in one of episodes where Professor T (Albert Martinez) showed her picture and revealed that Charo’s character is one of the most influential vampires who spearheads an international corporation. Thus, netizens jested that this could have been the secret behind her ageless beauty.
It seems that the former president and Chief Content Officer of ABS-CBN Corporation doesn’t age a bit and looks as stunning and youthful as she was when she was still the reigning Miss Baron Travel Girl in 1976. Well, it’s not because of drinking blood, but living a life filled with happiness, love, and faith.
Certainly, many would not believe that the media executive and actress-host is already in her 60s, has two grown-up sons, and is a proud grandmother to three adorable grandchildren, as her timeless glow and mesmerizing beauty captivates us everytime we see her in magazines and on the TV screens.
Aside from her mesmerizing beauty, the femme fatale of the entertainment industry also got us awestruck with her palpable and undisputable flair both in acting and hosting. From her first movie stint in the 1976 Mike de Leon-helmed suspense-drama film Itim, she has been the perpetual host of the longest-running drama anthology in Asia Maalaala Mo Kaya, which continues to deliver meaningful and magnificent stories.
After stepping down from the ABS-CBN presidency, Charo has been active in showbiz again, gracing various lifestyle magazines, guesting in strings of TV shows, and headlining the award-winning independent film by auteur Lav Diaz Ang Babaeng Humayo. Although she is one of the network’s brightest stars, she keeps her feet on the ground and even fangirls over several celebrities.
Throughout her stellar 41-year career, she remained as an inspiration and role model especially to women who strive to become as successful as her.
Watch Charo in the longest running and most awarded TV drama anthology in history, Maalaala Mo Kaya, Saturdays after The Voice Teens.
