Jessy Mendiola first charmed the Filipino viewers when she played Coco Martin’s love interest in the drama series Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo, where her role became a recurring character. She was also cast in the reintroduction of the 90s youth-oriented series Gimik in ABS-CBN’s Your Song weekly series. But her biggest break came when she was tapped to play the title role in the drama series Sabel.
She was later seen in Bianong Bulag, which was part of the series Agimat: Ang Mga Alamat ni Ramon Revilla, and as the bestfriend and first girlfriend of Gerald Anderson’s character in Budoy. She also starred in Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Paraiso and played another title role in the Philippine remake of the popular Mexican telenovela Maria Mercedes.
Jessy starred in the film The Reunion with her fellow Star Magic talents and played a lead role in the drama-comedy Must Date The Playboy. She joined ASAP Rocks in 2011 as part of the Dance Quad along with Empress Schuck, Enchong Dee and Sam Concepcion and is still regularly seen in the show as both host and performer. She was recently cited as FHM Philippines’ No. 1 Sexiest Woman in the Philippines.
