Chienna Filomeno Age, Biography, Etc.: 12 Facts About Chie Filomeno You Should Know

1. Chienna was supposed to be named Kimberly.

...But when her parents saw her almond-shaped eyes, they decided to give her a name that paid tribute to her Chinese heritage (she's 1/4 Chinese). She was born on August 15, 1996 — so if you're looking for Chienna Filomeno age, do the math.

2. She didn't want to be an actress growing up.

In an interview with StarStyle, she said that she wanted to be a teacher, chef, and flight stewardess when she was a kid. She appeared in a few commercials as a kid, then auditioned for ABS-CBN's Star Magic talent management group in 2011.

When she entered the entertainment industry, she didn't enjoy being an actress right away, but it grew on her. "Once you're with the right people, you learn to love it and you get to learn new things every day," she said.

3. She's known for playing mean girls, but would welcome a change.

Chienna's first major role was an antagonist. To prepare for the role, she did her research by watching Mean Girls and emulating Regina George. She enjoys playing the mean girl, she says.

"Yeah, I play the mean girl like always," she tells StartStyle. "But I really love playing the kontrabida because it puts life into the show. It also helps that I have a resting bitch face. (Laughs) Every role is different and it’s always a challenge on how I am going to portray the mean girl."

Playing the mean girl all the time as its drawbacks — people assume that she's a snob and hard to get along with, when that couldn't be further from the truth. So for a change, she'd like to try playing the good girl.

4. Her favourite TV show is The Royals.

5. Her style is minimalist and laidback.

Scrolling down Chienna's Instagram feed, it's easy to get a handle of her style. She's hip, but her style is also quite elegant. She's usually seen in neutral colours liek white, grey, and black. Her favourite designer brand? Gucci.
