Remember Serena Dalrymple, the popular child actress in the late 1990s and early 2000s? The adorable kid whose role in a fast food commercial has long been an indelible part of our cultural memory? Well, she’s now 31 years old, a certified fur mom, and engaged to her non-showbiz partner.
Seventeen years after her retirement from showbiz, people are now being wowed by Dalrymple, the popular child star who appeared in several TV commercials (remember the Jollibee ad with Aga Muhlach) and films in the late 1990s and 2000s.
Serena shared a quick life update on her Facebook page that probably just carbon dated many millennials right now.
Dalrymple has certainly come a long way. Now based in New Hampshire in the US, she marked a new milestone as a technical program manager in a financial software company.
But that’s not all. The former child actress has also gotten engaged with her non-showbiz partner and became a fur mom to a fluffy Siberian Husky.
Back in June 2020, Dalrymple’s former Hiling co-star Paolo Contis posted a throwback photo showing them posing with fellow actors Carlo Aquino, Camille Prats, and Shaina Magdayao.
