With her glowing fair complexion and captivating beauty, it’s indeed impossible for one not to turn his/her head nor not to take a second a look at budding actress Alyssa Muhlach, who’s currently known by her role as Dra. Sophia Dela Paz, the kindhearted and beautiful girlfriend of lead actor JM de Guzman’s character in the primetime family drama Pamilya Ko.
Since this is her teleserye debut, not much has been known nor written about the 23-year-old stunner. So, here are some of the few things we found out about her:
She’s a scion of a prominent showbiz clan
Muhlach, as we all know, is one of the most influential clans in the Philippine entertainment industry. His grandfather Cheng Muhlach was a former actor-producer while her actress-mom Almira is one of the siblings of seasoned thespians Aga and Arlene. She’s the eldest among the three daughters of Almira with ex-PBA star player Paul “Bong” Alvarez.
She’s a beauty queen
Prior to joining her family in the limelight, Alyssa was one of the titleholders of Miss World-Philippines 2018. She was hailed as the successor of Teresita Ssen Marquez in the Reina Hispano Americana Filipinas pageant but fell short in snagging the back-to-back win for the country.
She’s a recording artist
Did you know that she’s not actually a first-timer in show business? She initially entered the scene when she was 14 years old in her pursuit of fulfilling her dream to become a singer and of helping their family with their finances at the same time.
In a video uploaded on her Facebook page, she divulged that she recorded her first album “Addicted to Acoustic 3”, which also received a gold record award. A few years after, her self-titled sophomore album was released.
She’s an achiever in school
Being a part of a beauty pageant is already enough proof that Alyssa is definitely more than just a pretty face. In fact, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from the University of Asia and the Pacific via merit scholarship.
Aside from excelling academically, she’s also active in various extra-curricular activities of their school.
She’s a proud “NBSB”
But what could be the most shocking trivia about Alyssa is that she never had a boyfriend. For sure, it’s unbelievable for many, but it’s really the truth. When asked if there’s a possibility for her and leading man JM de Guzman to be an item, she told the King of Talk during her appearance on Tonight With Boy Abunda last June that she’s not the type of girl who just dates around.

“When I date or nagpaligaw ako, it’s really like a commitment to me. It’s a serious relationship. And I also wanna be with someone who respects my family — my mom and my dad na magpaalam. So kung kaya n’yang gawin ‘yong process na ‘yon,” the young actress laughingly retorted.
