The trophies decorating her home is a testament to the actress’ ability. But we’re sure that Angel’s greatest treasures are her two, beautiful daughters. Her eldest child is Iana Bernardez, who is said to be her mother’s doppelganger. They both share the same dazzling smile, high cheekbones, and signature bushy eyebrows.

Iana tried to experiment with modeling back when she was in college as she helped her friend who owned a clothing shop named “Little Turp.” According to her LinkedIn page, this young woman also worked as an events producer.

But Inquirer recently reported about Iana following the footsteps of her mother. Her debut film would be “Gusto Kita With All My Hypothalamus,” wherein she bagged the leading role. The film was directed by Dwein Baltazar. Iana shared how surprised she was with the opportunity because initially, she wanted to focus on film production.

“I didn’t really decide to go into acting. I only wanted to try film production. But luckily the opportunity presented itself, and I didn’t want to pass it up.”

Asked if there was anything her mom told her to do, Iana said:

“Mom told me to stop re-reading the whole script so I wouldn’t get tired of it,” Iana recounted. “She advised me that, after taking in the story and the character, I should take it by day, by sequence. Most importantly, she told me to follow my instincts.”
