Jessy Mendiola was part of ABS-CBN’s Star Magic Batch 15, and first entered the TV industry in Abt Ur Luv Ur Lyf 2 along with the other new talents in 2007.
Jessy suffered some setbacks to her stardom, as she got pulled out of a couple of shows. She was supposed to be the lead for Habang May Buhay in 2008 but it was cancelled and recast. She was also supposed to be part of Kokey @ Ako but her part was scrapped in favor of another love team.
After appearing in Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo, Maalaala Mo Kaya and Wansapanataym, she finally got her big break in the titular role of Sabel in 2010. Since then, she’s been a regular at ASAP, becoming part of the show’s Dance Quad along with Empress Schuck, Sam Concepcion and Enchong Dee.
Her network is giving her an even bigger break now that Jessy’s entered the mainstream, giving her the role of Maria Mercedes this 2013, a remake of the popular Spanish telenovela which starred Thalia.
