This beautiful Filipino-British lady was the one I hinted before as the former GMA Artist Center talent of GMA Network who screened for Miss World Philippines last February 3 at the Red Hotel. Stress on the word “former” because her talent management contract with GMA7 has already expired last year. She is doing this national pageant as an independent.
19 year-old Janelle Lewis took part in the latest edition of “Starstruck” – the GMA reality TV search for potential stars to be built up for their shows and teleseryes. She did not win that one, but was still signed up. Shortly after, she was able to appear in guest/supporting roles from time to time.
Except for the 5’9” Klea Pineda (who is now an afternoon teleserye headliner), I have always thought that taller girls have a harder time making it big in showbiz, owing to the fact that we have a dearth of tall actors (6’0 tall and above) to be paired with them. Janelle is 5’6” and her overall beauty and stance could be appreciated more in pageantry. Hence, the decision to screen for her first national tilt.
Let’s see what’s in store for Miss Lewis in MWP.
