Maureen Larrazabal (born September 23, 1979) is a Filipina actress, singer and commercial model who is one of the regular mainstays of the TV sitcom Bubble Gang of GMA Network. Before venturing into movie and television, Larrazabal was with the Big Deal band who often performs abroad. She was with the band for 5 years.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Larrazabal is the daughter of Nestor Vera Cruz and Ana Marie Larrazabal. Mau, as she is fondly called, has two siblings: EJ Leonardo and Raine (Lorraine Ana). She got an AB Communication Arts in Interior Design from St. Paul University Quezon City.

Career[edit]

Before venturing into movies, Larrazabal made TV commercial appearances for Condura Refrigerators, Skin Reborn and Gilbeys Gin.[2]

Larrazabal started her film career via sexy-flicked movies such as Ekis (1999), Unfaithful Wife 2 (1999), Bulaklak ng Maynila (1999), Sugo ng Tondo (2000) and Blood Surf (2000). Showing her versatility, Larrazabal decided to shy away from doing sexy movies instead shifted to more wholesome projects. She began accepting TV projects. Her first break was playing the weather girl, Carrie in GMA 7's comedy sitcom, Mikee Forever. This was followed by more comedy sitcoms such as Iskul Bukol and Gags Must Be Crazy of Viva TV, Home Along Da Riles of ABS-CBN, and finally Bubble Gang.

Like some other actresses, both foreign and local, Larrazabal openly admitted that she had breast augmentation.[3] As a result, Larrazabal has graced the covers of some of the Philippines' most popular men's magazines such as FHM Philippines and Maxim Philippines. In 2010, she was voted as FHM Top 25 Sexiest Women of the Decade in Philippines.[4]
