She started basking in the limelight after joining the band of kids on gag show Goin’ Bulilit. Since then, she has released her own album To the Moon & Back and most recently appeared as Justine on hit Primetime drama The Good Son. But even with almost a decade of experience under her belt, it seems there still more fans have yet to discover about Alexa Ilacad.
Aside from her singing and acting, the 5 feet 3 inches tall actress also hosts her own YouTube channel called Alexa Ilacad. This is her little corner on the internet where she shares her love for music and beauty. She also undergoes a ketogenic diet with Saturdays and Sundays for a cheat day because “I need cheat days,” she explained. Although recently she has been cooking her own food instead of having them delivered. “If you have food delivered for such a long time, medyo nakakasuka na siya,” she admitted.
While she has been admired by many, she revealed her own set of idols. Having a passion for make-up, Alexa adores Gigi Hadid and even got to meet the supermodel in Japan during an event for a make-up brand. Her fashion sense, on the other hand, is a different conversation. Alexa claims that she isn’t creative in this aspect of her life, “Honestly, I’m not so fashionable”. But she does find inspiration from English pop singer Dua Lipa.
What about music? It’s no secret that Alexa is a major Belieber. She entered the fandom back in 2009 and even included this fact in her then Twitter bio, “I’m so proud. I love that guy”. Currently, however, her favorite song is Sink In by Amy Shark from the original soundtrack of the film Love Simon. From the same movie, lead actor Nick Robinson is actually her crush, while Enchong Dee is her crush among the locals.
Alexa certainly had a lot of fun answering some of the internet’s top questions for her. Will there be a part two? Hopefully!
