Take A Glimpse At “Kadenang Ginto” Star Francine Diaz’ Big And Happy Family
15-year-old Kapamilya actress Francine Diaz is known as one of the lead actresses of the highly talked about and well-loved afternoon soap opera Kadenang Ginto.
She portrayed the role of Cassandra “Cassie” Mondragon, daughter of the protagonist Romina Mondragon played by Beauty Gonzalez, which in real life is somehow different from the popular character she plays in this hit ABS-CBN series.
Although it was previously revealed that this teen star is always very quiet on the set of Kadenang Ginto, there were also times when she can actually be loud and bubbly, especially when she’s surrounded by the people who are close to her heart, her friends and family.
If you see her on TV as the only daughter of a wealthy couple on-screen, that has a very complicated life because of the intense scenes among its continually warring lead characters, this scenario was really far from the real family that Francine has —a happier and bigger one.
In real life “Cassie” is the daughter of Daddy JM and Mommy Merdick, she was raised by her parents together with her five adorable siblings – namely, Chantal, Cameron, Cali, Courtney, and their youngest and only brother Eisa.
Browsing the young Kapamilya actress Instagram account that now has over 2.4 million followers. This is where she usually keeps her fans updated by posting snaps of herself and anything about work, but there are also a few posts and stories where she proudly showed her beautiful family.
It’s also not a secret to the public that before attaining the comfortable life they have right now, their family faced many struggles and hardships in the past. Their inspiring story was featured in an episode of the morning talk show Magandang Buhay in 2018, where Francine and his father shared their life before she became a Kapamilya celebrity.
The young actress’s father used to work as an OFW, but despite that, he still found it hard to provide for all the needs of his big family. It was only when Francine was discovered by a talent scout and later on started doing commercials, modeling and acting when their life changed a lot in terms of finances.
