Erlinda Gaerlan Asturias (June 7, 1927 – May 20, 1992), popularity known as Alicia Vergel, was a Filipina actress noted for her roles as fighting women and amazons and, like Norma Blancaflor, for her heart-shaped face.
Vergel's film credits include Diwani opposite César Ramirez, MN with Carmen Rosales as her arch-enemy, Balisong with Ramon Revilla and Madam X with Gloria Romero as her daughter. She participated in the unfinished movie Bibingka'y masarap under Sampaguita Pictures in the late 40s. Her performance as Orang in Basahang Ginto won Vergel the first FAMAS Award for Best Actress in 1952.
She married Sampaguita Pictures' leading man César Ramirez. They had two children: Ace Vergel (known as "The Original Bad Boy of Philippine Movies"), and Beverly Vergel, actress, acting teacher and currently director of the ABS-CBN Center for Communication Arts, Inc. Vergel and Ramirez separated; Vergel married another man and had another child, Mike.
Vergel died of natural causes in 1992.
She was posthimously inducted to the Eastwood City Walk Of Fame Philippines in December 2006.
