Happy Siblings Day!
Have you given your sister or brother a tribute of sorts?
In celebration of the annual National Siblings Day in the U.S., here's a list of local star siblings who are still active and visible in showbiz.
In an industry filled with intrigues and issues, it really pays to have someone who has your back.
Did you know Arjo Atayde's bedroom is the masculine version of his sister Ria's.
That was because he trusts her taste and judgment.
For the 25-year-old actress' part, her recent Instagram message to Arjo was a clear indication of their closeness.
"It's been a tough couple of days...So shout-out to the best brother ever for being my confidante and my picker upper.
"Love you loser."
