KATE VALDEZ with fans at Nail Cocktales, BGC

KATE VALDEZ Turned 17 last August 21, three days before that her GMA Artist Center family invited a couple of her fans to a pampering session at Nail Cocktales BGC by Rich Asuncion. The event was also supported by Goldilocks and Jellyace.

The casual event was hosted by TOP member Joshua Jacobe who also offered a song number to the birthday girl.

The young actress’ current priority is acting – she devotes all her free time to learning more about the craft through various workshops. Kate also has a fantastic voice, but singing is not yet on the agenda. She’s home schooled right now and plans to take Tourism when she gets to college.

Kate always gets excited when she hear rumors about an Encantadia Season 2 and also thinking about what her 18th birthday would be like. She imagined it as something “boho-like” or “traditional” but these are just some early sketches.

For the uninitiated, Kate Valdez made her first showbiz appearance in the GMA afternoon TV series “Destiny Rose” in 2015. Look her up, she played the role of Violet.
