If you're a die-hard teleserye fanatic, you'll probably agree when we say that there are quite a handful of iconic shows that graced our TV screens and kept us entertained every night. And with those iconic shows come equally impressive actors and actresses who brought the storyline to life with their applause-worthy acting skills.

One such breakout star is Xyriel Manabat, who is best known as an award-winning child actress. Xyriel broke out in the local entertainment scene when she starred in the ABS-CBN teleserye 100 Days to Heaven. If you didn't know, 100 Days to Heaven is about Anna Manalastas, a strong-willed but snobby CEO of a toy company who dies in an accident and is given a second chance in life to fix her mistakes, except the catch is that she goes back to Earth in the body of a child.

The ~real~ adult version of Anna is played by veteran actress Coney Reyes, while Xyriel—who was seven years old at that time—played the adult Anna that was transformed into a child. Viewers were impressed by the young Xyriel's on-point portrayal of a masungit and mean grown-up. Ready for a little throwback? Here's a scene from the said teleserye as a refresher:


And if you're wondering how Xyriel is doing now, she's actually a full-fledged adult! Xyriel is now 18 years old, having celebrated her debut in January of 2022. In recent years, Xyriel has appeared in a couple of shows and films, including the internet-viral teleserye Wildflower where she played the young counterpart of Maja Salvador's ~iconic~ character. She also starred in the indie horor film Ilawod directed by Dan Villegas and co-starring Ian Veneracion and Iza Calzado.

As a certified Gen Z star, you'll find Xyriel on social media, particularly Instagram where she has over 700,000 followers and TikTok, with over 200,000 users following her short videos. 

Recently, Xyriel also made headlines after getting a set of dermal piercings. ICYDK, dermal piercings are single-point piercings, meaning they don't have a separate entry and exit point unlike the regular types we get on our ears. Xyriel has three on her sternum and one just below her neck where the collarbones meet. Check out Xyriel's cool dermal piercings here:
