Angela Alarcon is a woman worthy to be celebrated as her story proves there is more to her than meets the eye

In politics, dynasties are far from an unusual thing. While this ideology may be seen as problematic in that world, in showbiz, a worthy heiress can be a good thing. But Angela is not content to rest on her family name’s laurels—she is determined to carve out a path that is uniquely hers. She is undoubtedly the ultimate embodiment of the phrase, “like father, like daughter,” but with a twist that’s all her own.

Breaking the mold

When you are the child of a television icon from the 80s like Jestoni Alarcon, people might see your fame as your advantage. However, Angela Alarcon chooses to ignore the easy path that comes with her privilege. While it’s true that she shares her father’s passion for acting, she’s also a fiercely independent woman with her own strengths. 

“What I [will] tell younger Angela is not to get stuck in that mold of just being the celebrity’s daughter, and to continue stepping out of your comfort zone to grow, discover, and rediscover your most authentic self.” 

To Angela, success is subjective—and that’s the beauty of it. There is no one-size-fits-all definition of success. For some, success may mean winning awards or amassing a huge following on social media. For others, it may be as simple as finding inner peace. Angela defines her success by saying, “Achieving your goals is great, but it is important to constantly remind yourself that your own happiness and well-being should be your utmost priority.” 

Fruits of her labor 

Based on her stance, success meant Angela is celebrated, influential, and respected in the industry. At this time when anyone can rise to fame via a 24-hour TikTok video, Angela worked all the way up slowly but surely. 

Growing up, it was inevitable she was greatly immersed in the entertainment culture and lifestyle. Seeing her father bring characters to life on screen, and witnessing his impact on his audiences, further fueled her passion for acting. As they say, behind every artist, there’s a role model who inspired them to reach for the stars.

“I am definitely proud to say that my father was one of, if not the most, influential role models who inspired me to pursue a career in showbiz.”

Besides her father, Sparkle GMA Artist Center has played a pivotal role in empowering Angela to become her own woman and establish a successful career on her own platform. One of the actress’ admirable qualities is her interest in learning from the people she works with as she takes every opportunity to converse and listen to directors, co-stars, production staff, and many others. “I take the opportunity to get to know them and learn as much as possible. It’s amazing how much wisdom I can get just by listening to what they have to say.”

This ultimate boss lady proves even more that hard work pays off. From her roles as Chief Kelly in the upcoming GMA series Voltes V and a fierce woman named Allison in Magandang Dilag to her finishing a degree in Speech Communication with flying colors at the University of the Philippines, she is definitely a woman of beauty, brains, talent, and determination.

Constant metamorphosis

Though she was once a rookie in the action genre, she has quickly proven she’s a natural-born warrior in the television scene. Like a caterpillar-turned-butterfly undergoing a complete metamorphosis, she’s constantly shedding her old skin and growing into something new and beautiful. Whether it’s taking on a challenging role or exploring horizons in her life, Angela is always in a state of transformation. And while some may fear change, she embraces it with open arms—knowing that every experience, every hardship, and every triumph is just another step in her path towards self-discovery. 

The power woman behind the spotlight

Nowadays, celebrities like Angela choose to share their unfiltered selves. From her expressed desire to learn dancing, taking the time to casually chat with her fans, to understanding the importance of pakikisama at work, this woman is just like many of us. “Being compassionate and patient towards others will take you places,” she says. 

In a society that sets limitations for women, the rising actress stands out as a fierce advocate for women’s empowerment. Angela’s resounding message of inspiration to her fellow women is to continue pushing boundaries and striving towards their goals. Her words, quoting the iconic Jo March from Little Women, “Women, they have minds and they have souls, as well as hearts. And they’ve got ambition, talent as well as beauty.”

She may be one of the celebrities whose photos you like on Instagram or the girl you watched on TV in one of GMA’s teleseryes, but after this exclusive conversation with MEGAStyle, one where she was beautifully donning the shade Inspire from YOU Beauty’s Rouge Power Matte Lipstick line, there is a major difference in her aura as we got to know the star behind the screen.

Angela Alarcon required no glitz and glamour to affirm her worth. She can admit her shortcomings openly to being a worthy representative for every woman seeking happiness. “You do you. Don’t box yourself in stereotypes a society makes that discourage you from reaching your potential. Remember that you are badass, strong, and can do just about anything. Never apologize for being a strong, independent woman!”
