Did you know that Dimples Romana was part of Judy Ann Santos's prime-time series, Esperanza?

Last March 9, Dimples posted a screenshot of her character from the credits of Esperanza's final episode.

This was accompanied by a caption about her realizations in her stay in showbiz.

Dimples wrote, "Showbusiness is a tough business. It is ever changing and there’ll always be new ones and it’s not easy to keep up. You may lose your way or worse lose yourself along the way.

"But I am grateful na pag-abot ko sa araw na ito, ako pa din ito.

"Yung dalagitang minsan nangarap na magkaroon ng oportunidad na umarte at tumagal sa industriyang kinalakihan ko na.

"Proud akong sa journey ko bilang artista, nandito pa din sya. Hindi sya nawala At hindi din nabago."

Apparently, it was also on March 9 when Dimples was first launched as part of Star Circle Batch 4.


Star Circle is the former name of the batches of new talents launched by ABS-CBN's talent arm, Star Magic (formerly called Talent Center).

The Kadenang Ginto actress continued, "On the same day 22 years ago, I was launched as part of Star Circle Batch 4 and as Kapamilya. Been acting and hosting every since.

"This photo is my 12 year old self playing Paola in my first ever teleserye, also my first kontrabida character.

"My director then is also my director now Direk Jerry Lopez Sineneng with Direk Don Cuaresma and Direk Rory Quintos.

"Grew up working with the best mentors, and now 22 years later, still learning and more importantly, still here.

"Thank you Lord for keeping my dreams alive. Sometimes it’s now how high you soar but how long you can keep soaring. Keep going."

Dimples also wrote a message of thanks for those who mentored her for the past two decades.


"My heart is so grateful for all those who generously gave me guidance, shared their knowledge and were kind to me. Salamat po!

"And for all the dreamers out there, hard work always pays off, be patient with yourself and your journey and kindness goes a long way.

"@starmagicphils love you my Star Magic Family, Mr M, tita Mariole, Kuya Alan my handler and all my past and present road managers, mahal ko kayo.

"And to my batchmates, Star Circle Batch 4, Happy Anniversary po sa atin!!!"

Among Dimples's batchmates are Kristine Hermosa, Dominic Ochoa, Nikki Valdez, and Jericho Rosales.

Other Batch 4 members who are not active anymore in showbiz are Carol Banawa, Anna Larrucea, Julia Clarete, and Vanessa del Bianco.

Dimples currently plays a kontrabida in the Kapamilya afternoon series, Kadenang Ginto.
