Alyssa Alano (born Geramie Daud; 11 August 1987) is a Filipina-Australian film and TV actress. She was a former member of the popular Viva Hotbabes franchise.

Although she grew up in Tarlac, she was born Geramie Daud in Zamboanga City on 11 August 1987, to a Filipina mother and an Australian father of Spanish descent[1][2] (who later abandoned her and her mother).[3]

Notable appearances[edit]

"Keys Me"[edit]

During an appearance on GMA's late night variety show Walang Tulugan with the Master Showman in June 2006, Alano performed a cover of the song "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None the Richer. The performance would become a viral video in the country after a user uploaded a mondegreened version of the performance to YouTube, with karaoke subtitles of her accented lyrics, which among other things, rendered the title of the song as "Keys Me."

Alano did not know about the video until it was shown to her during an interview on 24 Oras' "Chika Minute" segment. After discovering the video, she reacted positively, and credited the video for her growing popularity.[4]

Una Kang Naging Akin[edit]

In 2008, Alano played the role of Maan in the afternoon drama Una Kang Naging Akin top-billed by Angelika dela Cruz and Maxene Magalona.[citation needed]
