The artist that is Therese "Teri" Malvar

GMA Artist Center has a gem among its roster of talents and that is the award-winning teen actress Therese 'Teri' Malvar whose acting capabilities have been recognized here and abroad. 

She currently stars in horror flick entitled "Ilawod" where she plays the character of Isla who is a malevolent water spirit that haunts innocent victims and lures them into danger. She will be seen in the afternoon series "Legally Blind" where she co-stars with Janine Gutierrez.

In the event organized by GMA Artist Center at Sip & Gogh, I got to know Teri deeper through her work of art and a chat on the side.

Check out these interesting facts about our dear loved teen star.
  1. Teri won the Best Actress Trophy in the first CineFilipino Festival Awards for her role in "Ang Huling Cha Cha Ni Anita." Among the other nominees were Nora Aunor and Eula Valdes. Now that's some tough competition!
  2. When Teri was cast for the lead role in "Ang Huling Cha Cha ni Anita," she had no acting background other than joining declamation contests in her school. She wasn't even supposed to audition for this film. 
  3. At the age of 13, she is the youngest nominee of the Gawad Urian Awards for Best Actress. 
  4. Last year, she took home the Best Actress Award at the 15th New York Asian Film Festival and 38th Moscow International Film Festival for her role in the indie film "Hamog." Along with actor John Lloyd Cruz, Teri is the first Southeast Asian actress to have won an award in the Moscow International Film Festival. 
  5. Despite her many projects, Teri does not neglect her studies. She is currently a grade 9 student at the Sun Valley National High School in ParaƱaque.
  6. In her free time, Teri unleashes her inner artist as she enjoys painting and doing calligraphy. 
  7. Teri is also a certified book nerd! Harry Potter series and Tuesdays with Morrie are among her favorites. 
  8. Not known by many, the 16-yeard old actress has a hidden talent for singing. 
  9. Before she developed the passion for acting, Teri's dream was actually to become a nun.
  10. Aside from Ilawod, Teri is also part of the indie film "Sakaling Hindi Makarating".
