You may not have heard of Yasmien Kurdi before (kind of reminds me of Kristin Kreuk a bit) but in the Philippines, she’s kind of a big deal. And since we here at Ecorazzi are always big fans of expanding our international horizons, we’re showing you two of Kurdi’s new ads for PETA Asia-Pacific. From the release,
“Kurdi was the first runner-up in the first season of the GMA Network talent show StarStruck. But her acting career really took off in 2006 when she won the role of Charming, the ugly daughter of Bakekang in the TV series of the same name. Her second album, Love Is All I Need, was released last year to acclaim from both fans and critics, and Kurdi currently stars as Shayne on GMA’s hit dramarama Saan Darating Ang Umaga”
“I’m asking people to liberate their diet and give vegetarianism a try,” says Kurdi, who ranked among the top contenders in PETA’s search for Asia’s sexiest vegetarian. “With so many delicious alternatives now available, it’s easier than ever to enjoy great food without causing animal suffering.”
