January 8, 2007 by cd
Kristine Hermosa Orille (born September 9, 1983 in Quezon City, Philippines) is a famous kapamilya actress. Her father is Filipino and her mother is a Spanish mestiza. She has an older sister named Kathleen, who was originally the one who dragged her to auditions in ABS-CBN. However, her sister failed to impress the judges in the first screening and it was reluctant younger sister Kristine who was suggested to audition due to her height and beauty. Thought to be just another pretty-faced teenage actress, Kristine rose to fame in the TV series Pangako Sa ‘Yo, which made famous her love team partnership with Jericho Rosales, who later became her real-life boyfriend.
Years before her fame, Kristine started out as Baron Geisler‘s loveteam partner in Nagbibinata. Later on, she was cast in Sa Sandaling Kailangan Mo Ako, a weekly drama series together with Marvin Agustin. She garnered critical acclaim for her performance in this series as she was portraying a role almost more than five years older than her real age.
She was linked to Diether Ocampo until it became a real-life romance on the set of Sana’y Wala ng Wakas. Later, the two got married. Also, their TV series together with her then real-life boyfriend Til Death Do Us Part was a major flop. In 2005, she was given the role of Luisa in the much-loved classic Gulong ng Palad together with new partner TJ Trinidad where she returned to the limelight after taking a break from acting in a TV series.
Hermosa is a member of ABS-CBN’s elite circle of homegrown talents properly named Star Magic. She is also voted no. 2 Most Beautiful Filipina of 2006.
