Cynthia Magpatoc Thomalla or simply known as Thia Thomalla is a sexy lifestyle host and a Filipino-German beauty queen.
She will be one of the leading ladies of Asia’s Multimedia Star Alden Richards in the new Kapuso series The Gift.
From being a certified beauty queen, Thia admitted that she made big adjustments for her new career.
“The biggest adjustment is you’re portraying a different character, you’re not gonna be yourself all the time.”
Thia revealed that she cried upon bagging her first acting role. The beauty queen will portray as Faith Salcedo in The Gift, one of the ladies in the series who will capture Joseph’s (Alden) heart. The series is directed by L.A. Madridejos and will premiere on September 16 on GMA Network’s Telebabad line up.
Before earning a spot in the drama series, Thia was hailed as the first Asian and Pinay to win Miss Eco International 2018 in Cairo, Egypt. Previously, she was crowned as Sinulog Festival Queen 2016.
She was born to a German father and a Filipina mother from Southern Leyte and is family-oriented as most Filipinos are.
Despite being the youngest daughter among five siblings, the 24-year-old beauty queen values independence a lot. At nine years old, her family migrated to Macrohon, Southern Leyte from the German countryside.
She is one of the hosts of Glow Up, a lifestyle show broadcast by GMA News TV. She co-hosts with Winwyn Marquez and Michelle Dee.
