I REMEMBER seeing the beautiful Isabelle Abiera on the cover of a teen fashion magazine more than a decade ago. There’s something about the beautiful cover girl that radiates a positive aura!
Fast forward to a few months, the cover girl had finally crossed to the television shows from print ads and magazines. I couldn’t be happier! Since then, I’ve supported her transition from a teen queen to a competent actress who is now using the stage name Max Collins.
Max Collins is currently appearing in the drama romance series To Have and To Hold in the GMA Telebabad line up. For those of you who have watched her and are unfamiliar with her, here are some of the things you may not know about Max Collins.

Because of her stunning physical features, Max had been involved in different commercials since she was a young girl. Mostly, she first appeared in nationally-circulated magazines such as Meg, Mega, Candy and Seventeen. Her discovery into the world of entertainment was purely an accident. She mistakenly walked into as shop while a shoot is in progress, it was where a talent scout spotted her.
After that incident, she auditioned and managed to land a spot at the Star Magic Batch 15. She was known back then as Isabelle Abiera and not Max Collins. Under her screen name, she appeared in shows such as Star Magic Presents: Astigs and Abt Yur Luv, a youth oriented program that ran for two years. She also had been a host for Channel V.
After her contract with Star magic ended, Max flew to the States to think things through. When she came back, she changed her agent, changed her stage name to max Collins and signed an exclusive contract with the rival station, GMA Network.
