Lourdes Virginia Poe—or Lovi Poe to everyone—started as a shy and timid showbiz newbie back in mid-2000. Back then, she was simply known as the daughter of movie royalty Fernando Poe Jr. But by 2006, when she was given her breakthrough role in the hit GMA-7 primetime drama, Bakekang, that she proved her mettle. She hasn’t stopped acting since delivering one fine performance after another, both on TV and in films. Possessing a roughish sexy voice, matched with a sulty onscreen presence, Lovi has also thrown in a few album and single releases in between.
By 2008, the once timid Lovi started reaping acting nominations and awards starting off with New Movie Actress of the Year award for Shake Rattle and Roll 9 by the PMPC Star Awards for Movies and Best Drama Actress, by the same award-giving body, which recognized her performance in the TV show, Kaputol ng Isang Awit,.
Today, Lovi is known both as a bankable leading lady and as a sexy-dramatic actress versatile enough to churn out different characters for both mainstream and indie viewers.
Off-cam though, Lovi likes to keep it low key. And it’s evident in her simple yet elegant home. At home, the fashionista actress turns into a coffee and book lover self as well as into her work-out enthusiast and pet momma personas. Her choice of the color turquoise as decorative theme color, mixed with the generally white backdrop, reflects her innate sophistication and calmness.
Here’s a glimpse of Lovi’s neat and elegant domestic life.
