Maureen Larrazabal (born 23 September 1979) is a Korean - American born-Filipina actress, singer and commercial model who is one of the regular mainstays of the TV sitcom Bubble Gang of GMA 7. Before venturing into movie and television, Maureen was with the Big Deal band who often performs abroad. She was with the band for 5 years.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Maureen is the daughter of Nestor Vera Cruz and Ana Marie Larrazabal. Mau, as she is fondly called, has two siblings: EJ Leonardo and Raine (Lorraine Ana). She got an AB Communication Arts in Interior Design from St. Paul University Quezon City.[2]

Career[edit]

Before venturing into movies, Maureen made TV commercial appearances for Condura Refrigerators, Skin Reborn and Gilbeys Gin.[3]

Maureen started her film career via sexy-flicked movies such as Ekis (1999), Unfaithful Wife 2 (1999), Bulaklak ng Maynila (1999), Sugo ng Tondo (2000) and Blood Surf (2000). Showing her versatility, Maureen decided to shy away from doing sexy movies instead shifted to more wholesome projects. She began accepting TV projects. Her first break was playing the weather girl, Carrie in GMA 7's comedy sitcom, Mikee Forever. This was followed by more comedy sitcoms such as Iskul Bukol and Gags Must Be Crazy of Viva TV, Home Along Da Riles of ABS-CBN, and finally Bubble Gang.

Like some other actresses, both foreign and local, Maureen openly admitted that she had breast augmentation.[4] As a result, Maureen has graced the covers of some of the Philippines' most popular men's magazines such as FHM Philippines and Maxim Philippines. In 2010, she was voted as FHM Top 25 Sexiest Women of the Decade in Philippines.[5]
