Carla Humphries (born Madeleine Lauren Humphries[fn 1] on May 20, 1988 in California, U.S.) is a commercial model, vlogger (video blogger) and actress in the Philippines. In her acting roles, she is sometimes credited as Carla Humphries Loren or Carla Loren.
She most recently appeared on the January 2011 cover of FHM Philippines Magazine.
In 2015, she transfers to GMA Network via weekly teen-oriented show InstaDad starring Gabby Eigenmann, Ash Ortega, Jazz Ocampo and Gabb Garcia. This would be her first TV show.
Humphries was discovered in 1999 at the age of 11 by Johnny Manahan, the director of the ABS-CBN Talent Center (now known as Star Magic) She was invited to join the Talent Center's acting workshops and audition as a Talent Center artist after Msnahan saw her perform in her school's Recognition Day program.
Humphries attended workshops in various disciplines, including acting, singing, and personality development over the course of two years. She was accepted and launched as a member of Star Circle Batch 11 in May 2003.
After her launch, Humphries began appearing in one-time guest supporting roles on various shows on the ABS-CBN network. Her first recurring guest role came in late 2003, when she was cast as a fashion model named "Paris" in the youth-oriented TV show Berks. In the show, Paris subsequently became the girlfriend of Berks regular, Ketchup (portrayed by Ketchup Eusebio). The role would be the first time Humphries is paired with a comedian, a pattern that is later repeated in the TV show Qpids.
In 2004, Humphries appeared in a supporting role in her first movie, My First Romance, as a friend of the lead character portrayed by Heart Evangelista. She was also cast that same year in her first primetime recurring guest role as "Penelope" in the TV series Sarah, the Teen Princess where she was positioned as a romantic rival of the show's lead character portrayed by Sarah Geronimo.
In 2005, Humphries was cast in ABS-CBN's Reality Loveteam Search Qpids in 2005, where she and her loveteam partner Janus del Prado emerged as the Qpids Voter's Choice for receiving the most votes from viewers through phone calls and SMS text messages. Qpids was where the stage name "Carla Humphries-Loren" was first used, with the intent to eventually transition her stage name to "Carla Loren" ostensibly to improve her name recall among Filipino viewers. After Qpids, however, Humphries continued to be credited as "Carla Humphries."
In 2006, Humphries and loveteam partner Janus del Prado were cast in the Langis episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya, a drama anthology on ABS-CBN, where Humphries' performance garnered glowing reviews from the local entertainment press.
In the same year, Humphries was cast as "Rita Arguelles" in the primetime drama series Bituing Walang Ningning, which starred Sarah Geronimo and Angelika dela Cruz. The series ran for 21 weeks during which time one of her shampoo commercials also began airing in the Philippines.
Humphries was also cast as one of the four lead characters in the youth-oriented TV series Star Magic Presents: Abt Ur Luv, which began airing in November 2006. The show launched her new loveteam with Victor Basa, won Best Youth Oriented Program at the 21st PMPC Star Awards (2007), and aired a total of 57 episodes. The series finale aired on January 5, 2008.
In 2008, Humphries joined the cast of Palos—a primetime action / drama TV series on the ABS-CBN network where she was cast as a medical doctor who also happens to be the First Daughter of the Republic of the Philippines. The role is a departure from the teen and youth-oriented roles that Humphries has portrayed since her launch as a Star Magic artist in 2003.
After Palos ended, Humphries also appeared on Ligaw na Bulaklak, an afternoon drama series that began airing on the ABS-CBN network in May 2008.

Humphries is the second of four children born to a Filipina mother and an Italian-American father who grew up in France. Humphries and older brother Alec were born in the United States, while her two younger siblings Nicolas and Samantha were born in France and the Philippines, respectively.
Humphries studied in French schools until her mother transferred her to the ABS-CBN Distance Learning Center (DLC) in Manila, where she obtained her high school diploma.
She enrolled and attended one year at the University of Santo Tomas to study fine arts, before transferring to the Centre for International Education (CIE) to study entrepreneurship, whose more flexible schedule allowed her to pursue her acting career without giving up her studies.
Humphries also holds a Gemology Institute of America (GIA) Jewelry Design Certificate after completing the 9-week Jewelry Design class at the GIA in Bangkok, Thailand.
Humphries dabbles in both music and art, and at one point entertained the idea of working in a museum or a gallery. She has been painting since she was eight years old: "I have always loved drawing and was always best in drawing in school. After that, I did after-class painting workshops. I love painting abstracts and landscapes. My works either reflect me, or they're sceneries. But I don't consider myself a professional."
