Discovered by an agent in a mall at the age of 16, Giselle (known simply by her legions of fans as "G") began working immediately, as a model, adding film /television actress, singer, dancer, television personality, and recording artist to her list along the way.

Giselle’s current wave of success not only in her home country but abroad, (She garnered a Best supporting actress award for the Manila Film Festival and was chosen to represent the Philippine film community at the Toronto Film Festival) has brought her to Los Angeles to continue to pursue her career, specifically in film and television.

She is the epitome of racial diversity, her mother being Filipino and her father- Swiss. This Eurasian is usually mistaken for a Latina- in fact in the play "Days when cocaine was king" which was staged at the Renegade Theatre in North Hollywood she played the lead role of Juanita, a singing salsa dancer who falls for a white boy. The Daily Variety heralded "Tongi radiates such a deep sensuality…".

She is currently based in Los Angeles with her husband Tim and daughter, Sakura Anne Marie. Her family is now her number one priority but acting she says is her true passion in life. She is attached to the Hollywood film "Wages of Sin" & "Songbirds" that are both slated to start principal photography in the Philippines in mid 2007.
