Valerie "Bangs" Garcia (born May 26, 1987 in Davao City, Metro Davao, Philippines) is a Filipina actress in ABS-CBN. The nickname "Bangs" came about because her bangs/fringe covered her face.


Valerie Garcia was in the reality show Campus Idol where she emerged as the female grand winner. She is popularly known as her stage name "Bangs Garcia" so she is usually credited on that name.

Her first appearance on national TV was on the reality search Close-Up To Fame where she was one of the runners-up to female grand winner Carine Cabebe. Valerie Garcia is a member of ABS-CBN's circle of homegrown talents named Star Magic.

Following her stint on the said reality search, Garcia debuted as a Kapamilya talent and joined the youth-oriented sitcom Let's Go and Gokada Go.

One of her first major project is ABS-CBN's teleseries Kambal sa Uma as Ynez Ocampo, one of the main antagonists in the story.[1]

In 2010, the management gave her a leading role in Magkano Ang Iyong Dangal?, where she played the role of Carmela Bautista-Morales as the main protagonist.

She also graces multiple cover of magazines such as FHM, Maxim, and many more.
