She may still be considered a newbie in show business but Thea Tolentino has already proved her mark by starring in four soap operas, two of which she is lead and are top-rating. After winning Protege: The Battle for the Big Artista Break, she took lead role in the afternoon soap Pyra: Ang Babaeng Apoy. The viewers were still feeling her as an actress then. The response turned positive as she brought the remake of Anna Karenina and current afternoon drama series The Half Sisters to the number one spot on their own time slots. All of these she made even before she was 18.
Thea Louise is one of the down-to-earth actresses I've known in her generation. She just planned for a very simple and intimate 18th birthday party. But with the help of GMA Artist Center, the humble gathering turned into a grand soiree with Thea being dressed up by one of the country's most celebrated fashion designers, Francis Libiran.
Here are some photos from that beautiful night.
