Filipina American mestiza Melissa Ricks | Photo

Miss Ricks was born as Melissa Marie on January 9, 1990. A Filipina American mestiza, she entered show business by being a contestant (finished as fourth runner-up) in the reality contest Star Circle Quest by ABS-CBN in 2004.  

She has blazed her own trail in her showbiz career. As of this writing, she appears in a supporting role in "Walang Hanggan", a primetime drama romance by ABS-CBN, which joins her in an ensemble cast with Julia Montes, Coco Martin and veteran actors such as Richard Gomez, Dawn Zulueta, Helen Gamboa and Susan Roces. 

She has really transformed herself. After her discovery in a talent search in 2004, Miss Melissa Ricks co-anchored in various TV shows by the ABS-CBN network, notably "SCQ Reload" and the weekend variety program "ASAP fanatic".  Here (in below photo), she poses for the pictorial of soap opera "Nasaan Ka Elisa". 

The young Filipina-American actress made a breakthrough in her acting in the fantasy series: "Da Adventures of Pedro Penduko." Melissa Ricks then ventured into dramatic roles when she played a supporting role in the series, "Iisa Pa Lamang" and a lead role in "Kambal sa Uma", opposite young actress Shaina Magdayao.
