She has come a long way since being one of Kuya’s housemates. There were some projects that came her way, but fans would agree that her big break came in the form of Precious Hearts Romances’ Araw Gabi series. Now, she is riding her momentum and stars as Pia on Wansapanataym Presents Switch Be With You.
Her continuing success must be dazzling, and she is more than thankful for all the support Kapamilyas have shown. Yet, Barbie Imperial has never forgotten the riles where she started her journey. In fact, she recently visited Bicol and said that nothing much has changed. “Masaya pa rin,” she described the feeling.
Barbie recounted how they do not have a car back in their hometown. Her cousins do, but they can’t always borrow it. So, their go to means of transportation are tricycles. “Nagta-tricycle pa rin po ako doon sa Bicol,” she boasted.
Currently, her family lives in Manila but their old house along the train tracks is still intact, “Hindi namin siya ni-let go.” Every time her mother is in Albay, she never fails to drop by their previous home.
Admittedly, the young actress’ life is vastly different from who she was before, but this is one piece of her life that will never fade. It holds many of her memories when growing up and is her connection to old friends. “Kung ano po ako ngayon, part sa akin ‘yung riles na ‘yun,” Barbie proudly stated.
