When you hear the name Ivana Alawi, the first thought that will enter your mind is the charming and hot young actress from the Kapamilya network, who is now one of the most followed celebrities in social media.
The 23-year-old Filipina-Moroccan beauty is also known for her daring bikini poses, that’s why it is not so surprising that most of her fans are male.
Here’s an album that contains photos of her fascinating transformation from the simple Mariam Al-Alawi to fabulous Ivana Alawi:
She first caught the attention of the Filipino viewers in her supporting character, Rina, the alluring friend of Mich, portrayed by Barbie Imperial, in Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Araw Gabi.
After that, she appeared in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano for the role of Madonna, the girlfriend of the late Eddie Garcia’s character Gustavo. Because of her great performance and good reviews, Ivana was given the chance to star in her first major role last year as the goal-driven champion debater and lawyer Lolita del Rio in Sino Ang Maysala? Mea Culpa.
When she became active in doing vlogs on her YouTube channel, the fast-rising star proved to the public that there’s more to her sexiness. The actress earned millions of subscribers in just a short period of time and was lauded by many of her fans because of her great personality.
Recently, Ivana signed a contract with media giant ABS-CBN for television, movie, and music projects, and is now busy preparing for her first title role in the upcoming series “Ang Lihim Ni Ligaya.”
Ivana’s real name is Mariam Al-Alawi. She is second to the youngest of four siblings born to a Filipino mother, Fatima Marbella, and a foreigner father, Samier Al-Alawi. She has three siblings, an older brother and sister who chose not to be part of the entertainment industry, and a younger sister named Mona Al-Alawi, also known by her stage name Mona Louise Rey, who is signed as a talent under the GMA network.
