As a long-time fan who has followed Alden Richards‘ career for over a decade, I‘m excited to provide an in-depth look at his background, achievements, personality, and talents…

Humble Beginnings

Born in Laguna to a middle-class family, Alden was immersed in performance arts from childhood. He honed his acting and singing skills by joining theater productions and contests, harboring big dreams despite coming from a non-showbiz background…

Rise to Stardom

Alden hit the jackpot when he joined StarStruck in 2008, placing in the final 14 and getting cast in GMA shows. But it was the 2013 phenom My Love from the Star that cemented him as a household name. His first major Best Actor award soon followed…

The AlDub Phenomenon

No one was prepared for the explosive chemistry between Alden and newcomer Maine Mendoza aka Yaya Dub. Their Kalyeserye skits were a cultural reset, trending #1 for weeks. As an avid AlDub shipper, I was over the moon! Their first movie broke records with ₱600M+ box office…

Actor, Singer, Host

While partially known for AlDub, Alden has proven himself to be an exceptional actor in dramas and indie films. His singing prowess is off the charts, with 3 certified gold albums! He‘s also a mainstay host on Eat Bulaga and Sunday Pinasaya…
