GMA Network artist Carla Abellana continues to capture the hearts of the Vietnamese viewers when she was named “Most Favorite Foreign Actress” at Today TV’s Face of the Year Awards 2016 on January 7.
In her acceptance speech, the actress expressed her gratitude to the award-giving body for the recognition and dedicated the award to her Filipino and Vietnamese fans and supporters.
“Thank you very much to all the organizers and board members of the 2016 Face of the Year Awards most especially to the IMC and Today TV. Thank you so much for the opportunity. I would like to thank my home network back in the Philippines, GMA Network; my manager, Arnold Vegafria, and my handler and road manager who is here with me tonight, Benj Gabitan.
“I thank all my Filipino supporters and most especially my Vietnamese fans for voting for me online. Thank you so much to all of you. If not for you, I wouldn’t be here tonight. I will surely treasure this prestigious award,” said Abellana.
A member of Vietnam’s Joint Media Corporation (IMC), Today TV is one of the first Vietnamese TV stations to air Filipino drama series. Three of Abellana’s concluded GMA Network programs—Kung Aagawin Mo Ang Langit, My Husband’s Lover and My Destiny—were a hit among Vietnamese viewers, which made her a household name in the South East Asian country.
The actress will continue to charm her Vietnamese fans with another show, Because of You, soon be aired on Vietnam’s Today TV.
