Date of Birth
13 December 1961, Tondo, Manila, Philippines

Birth Name
Esmeralda Dizon Tuazon

Esmeralda Tuazon was the second to the eldest among six children born in 1961 to an impoverished family. She helped the family by selling chewing gum. She studied at the Rajah Soliman High School. She was introduced to the producer Baby Martinez of MBM Productions through a common friend. She was then cast in Bitayin Si Baby Ama (1976), the movie that made a star of Rudy Fernandez. After her second film, Alas (1976), with Jun Aristorenas, she was given minor parts in several other pictures then dropped out of the movie scene for almost a year. When she came back in mid-1977, she was a contract star of Jesse Ejercito's Seven Star Productions. She became quite visible in the 1970s, in such films like Dabiana (1977), Miss Dulce Amor, Ina (1978), Atsay (1978), Menor de edad (1979), Gabun: Ama Mo, Ama Ko (1979), Bedspacers (1979) and Swing It, Baby (1979). After acting in two very relevant films for 1979, Ishmael Bernal's Aliw and Lino Brocka's Jaguar, Ms Austria was finally a lead star in Nang Bumuka Ang Sampaguita (1980).

In the 1990s and well into the 21st century, she still gives powerful supporting performances, in The Flor Contemplacion Story (1995), Muro-ami (1999), and even in Pagdating ng Panahon (2001), a Sharon Cuneta starrer. Austria has two Best Actress awards for Brutal (1980), from the Film Academy of Movie Arts & Sciences (FAMAS) and Metro Manila Film Festival; three Best Actress awards for Celestina Sanchez A.K.A. Bubbles (1988), from the Film Academy of the Philippines (FAP), the Catholic Mass Media Awards (CMMA) and the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF). She has three Best Supporting Actress awards: for Jaguar (1979), given by the Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino ("Gawad Urian Awards"); for Narito Ang Puso Ko (1992), from the URIAN and the FAP; and for Anak (2000), given by the FAP.

Alicia Vergel (1927-1993) was a Filipina actress noted for her roles as fighting women and amazons and, like Norma Blancaflor, for her heart-shaped face. She married Sampaguita Pictures leading man Cesar Ramirez and had two children who are also celebrities in the Philippines: Ace Vergel (known as "the Bad Boy of the Philippines") and Beverly Vergel who is an actress, acting teacher and currently director of the ABS-CBN Center for Communication Arts, Inc. (more popularly known as WORKSHOPS@ABS-CBN). Vergel and Ramirez separated; Vergel wed another man and had another child, Mike Vergel.

Vergel's film credits include Diwani opposite Cesar Ramirez, MN with Carmen Rosales as her arch-enemy, Balisong with Ramon Revilla and Madame X with Gloria Romero as her daughter. She made the unfinished movie Masarap ang Bibingka under Sampaguita Pictures in the late 40s. Her performance in Basahang Ginto won Vergel the first Famas Award for Best Actress in 1952.

In the 1980s she had a role as Ricky Davao's strict grandmother in Saan Nagtatago ang Pag-ibig. Vergel died of natural causes in 1993.

picture of Sandy Andolong

Sandy Andolong was the true Filipina beauty
of her time. She is neither tall nor small. She is, in fact, 5'4" in
height. She has maintained her small frame, even now that she is mother to
five growing kids, the eldest of whom, Rafael Sandino, is now 20 years old.

Sandy is not so beautiful nor is she plain looking either. Once, a kibitzer
described her beauty as "tamang tama lang." The type that grows on you.

Sandy was armed with a degree in acting when she joined showbiz more than
two decades ago. She finished an acting course in a university in New York.
One of her mentors was the late director Ishmael Bernal, who included her
in the cast of almost all the movies he directed. One of Sandy's most
memorable films, as far as we are concerned, was "Kakabakaba Ka Ba?"
Bernal, of course, directed it.

Though Sandy never won an acting award, she's recognized as an actress in
the true sense of the word. She is the type of performer who delivers, so
to speak.

For a while Sandy concentrated on being a wife to actor Christopher de Leon
and a mother to their five children. Ian, Boyet's son by former wife, Nora
Aunor, lives in the same compound where his father's family lives.

Like his half-siblings, Ian fondly calls Sandy "Nanay." He used to call
Boyet "Daddy." Now, he addresses him as "Tatay."

Sandy is like a second mom to him, said Ian during an interview in
connection with his movie, "The Cory Quirino Kidnap, NBI Files." He said
she takes to him like her own son.

Now that their children are all grown up (the youngest, Mica, is six years
old), Sandy is back to acting.

Behind the scene, Bobot and Sandy, plus Johnny Delgado have formed a
closely-knit "family" of their own. Their friendship in real-life dates
back to when they were just starting their respective families. Bobot and
Johnny are good friends of Sandy's husband, Boyet. Their gag show, "Goin'
Bananas," was very popular in the '80s.

Gloria Diaz

Ilocos region of Northern Philippines. Often referred to as one of the Díaz clan in newspapers, Díaz was one of 12 children. One of her sisters, Rio Diaz-Cojuangco, was also a Filipino actress and beauty titlist, who fell ill with colon cancer and died after a six-year battle.

1969 Miss Universe

She was approached by an individual who believed she would do well in the Miss Universe competition and groomed the young woman. Oddly, none of her family members took the competition seriously and did not accompany Díaz to Florida. Díaz was only eighteen when she became Miss Universe of 1969 after outsmarting other candidates on the question on how to welcome the first men that had just landed on the moon--Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin and Michael Collins--as soon as they were back on the planet. She was crowned in the international American-owned pageant in 1969 in Florida, U.S. after their footage was set on the Statue of Liberty in New York.

Acting career

Her first movie was Pinakamagandang Hayup sa Balat ng Lupa which was directed by Celso Ad Castilli. She also appeared in comedy pictures opposite Vic Vargas.

Díaz is also a well-respected actress in the Philippine film and TV industry. Her box-office mettle, as well as her acting prowess, was recently honored when she received the most-coveted FAMAS Award (the Philippine equivalent of the Oscars) of the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences for Best Supporting Actress in her role as a spinster adoptive mother in the FAMAS Best Picture Nasaan Ka Man (2005).

Seh was married and separated from Bong Daza, the son of the famous TV personality Nora Daza. They have one daughter and an adopted son. Isabella is now joining the
