4 Filipino Showbiz Personality Pairs You Didn’t Know Were Related

There is this widely-familiar adage that seems to run true when speaking about show business. From celebrities related to social-media influencers and famous news presenters, more and more showbiz relatives are starting to build their names in the spotlight. This only proves that old industry saying, “showbiz runs in the family”

Although the Philippine showbiz industry is in no shortage of celebrities who are well-known relatives, some closely-related personalities remain unfamiliar to us. Because of this, I have listed below a few showbiz personalities whom you might not know are related.

1. Will Dasovich & Karen Davilla

While Wil Dasovich is known to be childhood friends with Hollywood Actor Zac Efron, did you know there is another showbiz personality he is closely related to? Did you know that Fil-Am vlogger Wil Dasovich is the nephew of Kapamilya Broadcaster Karen Davilla? Revealed in one of Wil’s vlogs, Wil introduced Karen Davila as his ‘tita’ to his viewers. Later, it was explained that Wil’s mom, Charry Lising-Dasovich, is first cousins with the Kapamilya news presenter.
