Child star, versatile actress, and It-girl in the making, here’s why Belle Mariano should be on your radar.
You might know her as the breakout star from the hit show, He’s Into Her, but there’s more to Belle Mariano than the spunky role that she’s become known for. From her child star days to being called the “next Kathryn Bernardo,” she’s slowly becoming a household name. Aside from her acting prowess, it’s her hard work that made Belle Mariano earn cool girl status in the new gen. We’ve rounded up 6 possible reasons why we’re into her!

From her Goin’ Bulilit days to becoming one of the fastest-rising actresses of today, Belle Mariano’s been in showbiz since she was nine. She started doing commercials and earning supporting roles in the beginning, but then appeared in major shows like FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, Princess and I, and Maria Mercedes as the younger self of the lead characters, and eventually, she became part of the recent Four Sisters Before The Wedding as the young Gabbie Salazar.
2. NOTHING WAS EVER HANDED TO HER
Before she became the Maxpein Zin del Valle that we all know and love, Belle Mariano had to audition for her role in He’s Into Her and attended three go-sees before bagging the role. She knew she had to earn it!
3. SHE’S NOT AFRAID TO SHOW ADMIRATION FOR OTHER CO-ACTORS
While some people have troubles expressing their admiration for their contemporaries, Belle Mariano has always praised the people that she’s worked with, especially He’s Into Her co-star, Donny Pangilinan. Can you recall how she described Donny’s work ethic? “Kitang-kita ko po yung passion niya ‘pag nagwo-work kami.” She also had her fair share of fangirl moments, too—including Emily in Paris actor Lucas Bravo noticing her!
