There is always a first time for everything, and Gen Z star Francine Diaz has ticked off a lot of those on her list this year. The most significant of which is probably her first time to ever become a leading lady in a TV series! From mere supporting roles, Francine is set to headline the series Bola-Bola where she has not one, not two, but three leading men in KD Estrada, Ashton Salvador, and BGYO's Akira Morishita. We're excited to see what other things this fast-rising star will be accomplishing in the future!
In the mean time, we're looking back on a couple of firsts from Francine—including her first celebrity crush! In the first ever episode of a new video series called Candy Firsts, our February 2022 cover star shares that the first ever celebrity she's had a huge crush on is Marlo Mortel, and the reason behind it just shows that she's an avid reader like many of us.
Watch the full video to see Francine share various first-time moments, including her first shopping splurge, first celebrity crush, and first book she's finished reading.
