Dayanara Torres to revive PH showbiz career


Miss Universe 1993 Dayanara Torres recently came to Manila to become one of the judges for the 65th Miss Universe beauty contest.

Dayanara first visited the country in 1994 to crown the new Miss Universe. After the pageant, she became a celebrity in the Philippines doing several movie roles, television appearances, and product endorsements. She lived in the country for five years appearing in more than 10 movies. She also learned to speak Filipino and had a four-year relationship with actor Aga Muhlach.

The Puerto Rican beauty queen left Manila in 1998 and started a showbiz career in Puerto Rico and Hollywood. In May 2000, she married the famous Latin singer Marc Anthony. They split in 2004.

The gorgeous beauty queen, now 42, announced in December 2016 via Instagram that she is reviving her career in the Philippines. She will be one of the talents of Manila Genesis under Angeli Pangilinan Valenciano, wife of singer Gary Valenciano. She said that she is open to the idea of doing another movie with Aga, 47, who is now married to former beauty-queen actress Charlene Gonzales. Charlene became a semi-finalist at the 1994 Miss Universe beauty contest.

Dayanara said that she hasn’t talked or seen the actor for several years now. She recalled doing a movie with Aga and the happy memories during her long stay in the Philippines.
