IN PHOTOS: Liza Soberano's bohemian-inspired debut
MANILA, Philippines – A day before her 18th birthday, Liza Soberano's loved ones surprised her with a debut on Sunday, January 3.
Thankful for this chance to be part of this BiG surprise debut party for Liza. She is one of the nicest, most down-to-earth sweetest girls I have ever met. I first met her thru Tito @ogie_diaz who has been my friend for years. Then had the privilege to shoot her Ad campaign for Mega Tuna & from then on we planned the party with Tita Joni. Thank you Ogie and tita for the trust. We love you Liza! Happy 18th birthday again!
The party was held at a beach – Club Balai Isabel Hotel in Batangas, according to the event stylist's Instagram photo – and it had a bohemian theme. It was styled by Gideon Hermosa.
Liza's first name, Hope, was incorporated into the party decorations. Her real name is Hope Elizabeth Soberano.
The young actress' siblings flew in from the States to surprise her.
Liza's brother, Justin, also danced with the debutante.
In the clip below, Liza thanks Justin and her dad, and tells them that she loves them.
Liza rose to fame when she starred in the TV series Forevermore opposite Enrique Gil. The onscreen tandem has also done two movies together – Just the Way You Are and Everyday, I Love You.
Enrique was present at Liza's debut as well.
