Aside from starring in shows like Huwag Kang Mangamba and Click Like Share this year, actress Francine Diaz said she did not expect to make another one of her dreams come true to become a brand endorser.

“Actually sinabi na lang sa akin na meron akong gagawin na endorsement na skin care project. Kasi nasa lock-in taping so sinasabi na lang sa akin kung anong gagawin ko for this month or next month. So I’m really happy kasi pinapangarap ko talaga ito and dumating siya sa right time and a perfect timing. Natutuwa yung puso ko ngayon. I feel very blessed kasi ang dami kong blessings ngayon sa life ko. And sobrang thankful din ako sa mga supporters ko na parating nandiyan para sumoporta sa akin and for all their love.

“Sobrang happy ako kasi dati pinag-pe-pray ko lang talaga at pinapangarap ko na makapag-endorse ako ng skin care products and I’m very happy and I feel very blessed kasi Dr. Alvin ang aking ini-endorse ngayon. Atsaka trusted siya ng tita ko eh so wala akong pangamba dito sa Dr. Alvin. Ginagamit ito ng tita ko, ang ganda ganda ng skin niya,” she shared during the Dr. Alvin’s Rejuvenating Set launch event.

As one of the busiest actresses in the country today, Francine shared what her typical schedule looks like as she balances online schooling and her work ins showbiz.

“Minsan sa lock-in taping namin kapag rest day, kahit ang hina ng signal dun, pumapasok ako sa online class namin. And minsan kahit may taping meron akong ginagawa na mga Zoom na shoot din and then after namin sa lock-in taping, meron akong mga naka-schedule na photo shoots. After nun, hinahabol ko naman yung mga na-miss ko na school works. Mamaya may tatapusin pa ako na essay. Tapos one day may ishu-shoot dito sa bahay and then after that, may exam week kami. Tapos after exams meron akong gagawin. Wala naman akong ginagawang bagong show pero it’s more of for my YouTube channel and then sa sarili ko and sa school and marami pa sa mga susunod na buwan.

“Basta mini-make sure na matatapos ko kung ano yung pinaka importante. For the day if meron akong work then work lang muna and then after that yung pag-aaral na,” she explained.

During her reveal as Dr. Alvin’s new celebrity ambassador, the 17-year kapamilya actress shared her thoughts on whether she would ever join a beauty pageant in the future.

“Actually nakikita nila sa akin na parang, minsan sinu-suggest nila, ‘Bakit hindi mo i-try sumali sa mga pageant?’ Natutuwa ako na nasasabi yung mga ganun, na may mga comments na ganun about sa akin, but I don’t think that it is for me. Parang siyempre kung sasali ako sa mga pageant ng Binibining Pilipinas at Miss Universe, siyempre hindi lang naman yung sarili ko yung pinapakita ko, dinadala ko yung buong Pilipinas at lahat ng Pilipino. So thank you sa mga nagsasabi na puwede akong mag-Binibining Pilipinas but I don’t think it’s for me,” she said.

Before her Huwag Kang Mangamba love team partner Kyle Echarri became a Pinoy Big Brother housemate this season, Francine said they do keep in touch as friends even when not on the set. “Hindi naman kami nag-uusap everyday as in whole day. Kasi sa lock-in taping namin lagi ko na siyang nakikita, lagi kaming nagkakakitaan, lagi kaming magka-eksena. So sa text kamustahan like anong gagawin mo? Kamusta ka today? Ganun lang, super simple lang (laughs),” she added.
