Kylie Padilla bested other Kapuso stars like Gwen Zamora and Sarah Lahbati for the title role in GMA-7’s tv series adaptation of the classic Snooky Serna starrer “Blusang Itim.” She is now being trained by Ms. Gina Alajar in an acting workshop to prepare her for the role.
Kylie is the 18-year-old daughter of the country’s Action Prince, Robin Padilla. She started her showbiz career via a supporting role in the Kapuso action fantaserye “Joaquin Bordado” which was topbilled by her father in 2008. This first tv appearance won for Kylie her first award in showbiz – Best New Female TV Personality at the 22nd PMPC Star Awards for Television.
She continued her showbiz career on GMA-7 by being part of the musical variety show Party Pilipinas and acting stints in “Tween Hearts” and “Dwarfina.”
