Whenever she appears on-screen or anywhere, promising actress-singer Maris Racal never failed to bewitch us with her mesmerizing allure and fascinate us with her unmistakable acting and vocal prowess.
But it’s definitely her portrayal of the sassy, kikay, and social media-savvy yet palaban Peachy Ann Mabunga in the primetime series Pamilya Ko that has made us all more amazed with her as she exhibits truly compelling performance in her every scene that is indeed far from the previous characters she took on.
While she has already proven her caliber as an actress and singer-songwriter, she is able to unabashedly display her comedic and playful facet that we don’t frequently see through the videos she uploads on TikTok. Yes, Maris has joined the fad and the continuously growing community of the video-sharing mobile app!
Her account, which she named @missmariestella, has already raked in 1.4 million followers and her 20 videos have accumulated 3.2 million hearts (or “likes”)! As we anticipate the much-awaited return of Pamilya Ko on television, let’s take a look on some of her well-liked entries below:
Channeling Teddie Salazar of the hit Star Cinema flick “Four Sisters and A Wedding,” which was brilliantly portrayed by Toni Gonzaga, Maris’ impressive spoof of her conversation with Bobbie (Bea Alonzo) gained more than 282 thousand ‘hearts’.
Teddie is apparently her favorite as she once again uploaded another parody of one of the said character’s most remarkable parts in the movie, but complete with costume this time! It was ‘liked’ by more than 616 thousand of her followers.
Taking a break from amusing us with her ‘acting’, Maris then made us LOL (laugh out loud) with this video as she instantly changed faces with the sleight of her hand. This funny trick amassed more than 75.4 thousand hearts.
The 22-year-old actress then proved that she also got the moves and the figure of a beauty queen as she also uploaded her own entry to the trending “Catriona Dance Challenge.” Her dance cover gained more than 66.9 thousand ‘likes’.
Writing “Sorry Carlo” on the caption, she did a comic remake of Carlo Aquino and Queen of All-Seasons Vilma Santos-Recto’s iconic scene in the classic film “Bata, Bata Paano Ka Ginawa” by lip syncing to their dialogue and holding a photo of the former teen heartthrob on which her moving lips covered his. More than 11 thousand of her followers surely loved it!
In one of her idle moments, Maris showed us what boredom could do to her as she lip synced “Bored In The House” as she filmed herself showing the images of herself, Arjo Atayde, Ellen Adarna, JC de Vera, Paulo Avelino, Carlo Aquino (again!), and another actress with her moving lips stuck on theirs as seen on the screen. This fun video raked in more than 35.8 thousand ‘likes’.
Certainly, many of us are currently bored for we’ve been stuck at home for a long time now. Just in case you’re contemplating on how to bust your boredom, there’s seemingly no harm in trying TikTok, like what Maris did!
