Dayanara Torres took some time off her busy schedule and made a special video greeting Filipinos on Independence Day.
“To all of my Filipino friends around the world, mabuhay kayong lahat! The Philippines is my second home and I am so happy to wish you all a happy Independence Day. Maligayang araw ng kalayaan mahal kong Pilipinas,” she said.

Dayanara, who was crowned Miss Universe 1993 in the Philippines, always had a soft spot for the country. During the 90s, she started a career in the local entertainment industry and was even dubbed “Dancing Queen.”
When she went back to the Philippines in 2017, she received a warm welcome and was even asked if she would be willing to work in a project with her former flame Aga Muhlach. However, projects in the country did not push through that time.
