Jasmine Curtis home for good

Jasmine Curtis, the younger sister of Anne Curtis, has bought a condo unit in Metro Manila’s commercial district of Ortigas as she decided to stay for good in the Philippines, where she can juggle both studies and showbiz work.

The Filipino-Australian actress reportedly borrowed money from her big sister, in order to purchase a home of her own, and is now awaiting decision for her application for enrolment at the elite Ateneo de Manila University.

The sisters had lived with their parents in Australia, where they had also studied, for a while, before they were able to have a crack of the entertainment industry in Manila.

The 19-year-old Jasmine, who sings, dances, writes and does commercial modelling, left the Philippines for Australia in 2005 where she studied high school and graduated with honours from Loyola College, in Watsonia, Melbourne.

She was first noticed by some talent scout while visiting Anne here in Manila and, in 2011, appeared at ABS-CBN’s noontime variety show, ‘Showtime’. By the end of that year she signed a three-year contract with TV5, which is now grooming her to be one of its primetime princesses.

Her first miniseries with TV5 was a remake of the 1991 action-romance film, ‘Ang Utol Kong Hoodlum’ (My Hoodlum Brother), topbilled by the action star Robin Padilla and the singer-actress Vina Morales.

In 2012, she played Anya in ‘Nandito Ako’ (I’m Here) as a costar to Eula Caballero and David Archuleta, the runner-up at Season 7 of ‘American Idol’.
