You've probably seen Therese "Teri" Malvar before already. This talented 16-year-old has been making a lot of noise in the entertainment industry since she starred in Ang Huling Cha-Cha ni Anita. Get to know our girl crush in this list below.

  1. She beat the Superstar, Nora Aunor, for the Best Actress Award in the first CineFilipino Festival for her portrayal of a young lesbian in Sigrid Andrea Bernardo’s Ang Huling Cha-Cha ni Anita.

In an interview for Candy's November 2016 issue, Teri said that when Direk Sigrid asked if she was willing to kiss a girl for the lead role, she just answered, "Which part?" Says a lot about how much passion she puts into her characters at such a young age.

  1. In 2014, her handlers at GMA Artist Center advised her to use her real name Therese Malvar instead of Teri.

  1. She also starred in the movie Sakaling Hindi Makarating alongside Alessandra de Rossi, Pepe Herrera, and JC Santos.

Therese told Candy that the movie inspired her to try art. This is why she does calligraphy whenever she’s not studying or filming.
