Barbie Forteza Elated To Have Her Own Star At The Eastwood's Walk Of Fame

Various celebrities and media personalities were honored at Eastwood’s Walk of Fame held last Thursday, December 1. This year, one of the inductees is GMA Artist Center star Barbie Forteza. The Kapuso actress likens her recent achievement to a child who excels and does well in class.
“Kapag very good ang isang bata sa school, lagi niyang pinapakita sa magulang niya at sinasabing, ‘May star po ako.’ Pero ako, ang sasabihin ko na sa pamilya ko ngayon ay ‘May Walk of Fame Star na ako!” she gushes happily.

She wants to thank all the people who have been very supportive of her career since she started when she was a child actress. Since then, she has won a FAMAS best child actress award for the movie "Puntod", a Cinemalaya best supporting actress award for "Mariquina" and an international best actress award from Fantasporto Filmfest in Portugal no less for playing the role of a Badjao girl in "Laut".

She now promises to strive for more and continue to be a good example to her audience. “Napakasarap sa pakiramdam bilang isang aktres na magli-leave ako ng mark sa mga tao na hinding-hindi nila malilimutan. Gusto ko ring magpasalamat sa mga taong naniwala at patuloy na naniniwala sa aking kakayahan bilang aktres. Asahan po nilang lalo ko pang pagbubutihin ang aking ginagawa.”

Barbie will soon star in her new teleserye, "Meant to Be", with her having no less than four leading men: Jak Roberto, Ken Chan, Addy Raj and Ivan Dorschner. Watch out for it in 2017!
