Rhian Ramos at 18

A couple of years back, when Rhian Ramos was still a newbie in showbiz, her photos with different guys were posted on the Internet. The controversial shots created a stir and readily became an issue, painting Rhian as a playgirl.

Admittedly, it was the worst intrigue that Rhian has faced. It affected her emotionally and made her cry for several days. She vowed, however, to rise above the issue and prove to everyone that she is not what they pictured her to be.

“I’ve been so blessed the past three years,” said Rhian during her 18th birthday celebration Friday night at Manila Peninsula. “There are so many good things happening in my life and my career. I’m just so thankful for all of them. (Today) I have no reason to cry anymore.”

Rhian, who is the next big star to watch out for in the GMA 7 stable of artists, is getting her biggest break in her career. This month, she gets a primetime project playing the lead on La Lola, the Philippine version of the Argentinian series. Starring with her are JC de Vera, Wendell Ramos, Iza Calzado and Marvin Agustin, with the special participation of Eddie Garcia.

To further hype La Lola, GMA 7 only deemed it proper to throw a big bash for Rhian’s coming-out party. The grand event was attended by the stars and executives of the network (Annette Gozon-Abrogar, Wilma Galvante, Marivin Arayata, Redgie Magno, Gigi Santiago-Lara, Ida Henares, Joey Abacan and Lilibeth Rasonable), as well as Rhian’s family and close friends.

In a program hosted by Rhian’s La Lola co-star Marvin Agustin, the young actress was asked what she plans to do now that she has turned 18. “I want to be more mature and be able to make good decisions,” she replied.

Is she ready to go sexy? “There’s nothing wrong with going sexy,” Rhian maintained. “But I work hard for my career. I want to have a good image and set a good example.”

Ten years from now, Rhian still sees herself doing everything that she’s busy with now. Being in showbiz is something that she really loves to do. She is not sure, however, whether or not she would be married at that time, but she expressed her desire to adopt a baby by the time she turns 25.

Rhian, who is of British-Filipino descent, waltzed with her dad, Garrett Howell, for her first dance, followed by 127 other male stars that included Richard Gomez, JC, Mark Herras and Mark Bautista. Her mom, Clara Ramos-Howell, meanwhile, serenaded her with a song number, Not While I’m Around, from the Broadway musical Sweeney Todd, as photos of Rhian flashed on the big screen.

Rhian, who was discovered in a McDonald’s TV commercial, has undoubtedly made a name for herself in local showbiz. Thanks to GMA 7 for giving her the good breaks. Her TV debut as Richard Gutierrez’s leading lady on Captain Barbell, was followed by several other projects that allowed her to make her mark as a promising, young actress.

She was paired with Richard in two other primetime series — Lupin and Asero. She also had the chance to reprise Sharon Cuneta’s big screen role in the TV version of My Only Love.

Rhian ignited the celluloid screen, too and starred in movies like Ouija, The Promise, Monster Mom and more recently, I.t.a.l.y. She disclosed she got to fulfill one of her dreams by starring with Robin Padilla in the forthcoming thriller, Sundo.

That same night, Rhian was also formally launched as a Belo beauty. She was welcomed to the clinic’s stable of celebrity endorsers by Cristalle Belo Henares, daughter of Dr. Vicki Belo, who left for Paris and couldn’t attend the party.

Among the GMA 7 stars who graced the occasion were Eddie Garcia, Iza Calzado, German Moreno, Gladys Reyes and Lovi Poe.
