ALTHOUGH Valentine’s Day is still next year, the possibility of a romance between handsome actor Sam Milby and actress Jessy Mendiola is in the air.
The young actress recently admitted that she and Sam go out, but she also explained that they always go with a group. Too early to tell, Jessy answered when asked if the hunky Fil-Am actor is courting her. For her, they are just in the “getting to know each other” stage.
Sam, however, admitted last month in a taped interview with The Buzz that he is indeed courting Jessy.
Of course, before anyone admitted anything, rumors about who is dating who began flying around. For one, it was rumored that Sam was courting young actress Shaina Magdayao. Jessy, on the other hand, was rumored to being courted by Matteo Guidicelli when they were taping a TV series.
Still, in spite of Sam’s admission, Jessy feels that she is not yet ready to enter a new relationship. She does however hinted that Sam has a chance to win her heart.
Jessy, or Jessica Mendiola Tawile in real life, was born in the United Arab Emirates where her father used to work. Her mother is Filipino, while her father is half Lebanese, half British.
Jessy became part of ABS-CBN’s Star Magic Batch 15 and started playing minor roles in shows like Star Magic Presents: Abt Ur Luv, Sineserye Presents: Natutulog Ba Ang Diyos and Volta. She also portrayed lead roles in Maalaala Mo Kaya: Marriage Contract and Wansapanataym: Kakambal Koy’s Manika.
But her was in 2011 when she played the title role in the TV show, Sabel.
Sam, of course, is Samuel Lloyd Lacia Milby in real life, the son of a Filipino mother and American father. He was born in Troy, Ohio. His popularity rose after he became a housemate on ABS-CBN’s Pinoy Big Brother Season 1. Today, he is an actor, commercial model and recording artist.
