Now that she is appearing in another drama, let us get to know her better. Here are some of the things you may not know about the phenomenal Kat Galang.
Due to newly bought tassel earrings, Kat decided to record herself lip-synching to Stupid Love. This hilarious video had become popular overnight, with people relating to her pain and admiring her way of coping up with challenges in life. Her fans then tagged her as the “Tassel Girl”. She responded to her instant massive popularity by uploading another video. The rest is history.
From the get go, Kat already loves acting. Her love for her craft, specifically theater, earned her a scholarship in university, allowing her to finish her degree without financial burdens. From there, she received several offers to appear in various digital advertisements and Television commercials such as with Oishi, Mang Tomas, Avida, TaskUs, Upstream (MMFF), and Western Digital (AVP).
Apart from the commercial appearances, Kat is known to be a wonderful host. If not acting in commercials, she has been known to host several events including for NutriAsia, Globe Telecom After 5, Smart Communications Retail Assembly, and Handyman.
What is considered to be her breakthrough is her role in the highly acclaimed melodrama, romance, revenge television series Kadenang Ginto. In the show, she acted as Bonito Marilet, the bestfriend and confidante of one of Romina (played by Beauty Gonzalez). Because of her role in this series, she has been tagged as the “best friend ng bayan”.
