Lovingly referred to as “AshCo” by their fans, Ashley Sarmiento and Marco Masa were initially launched as part of Sparkle Teens. Their natural chemistry brought them closer together and birthed a pairing of their own.

Now, Ashley is dubbed as a leading lady in the making and a charismatic actress having starred in Kapuso shows such as “Nakarehas na Puso,” “Tadhana: Ligaya,” “Happy Together,” “Magpakailanman: The Power of Love,” and “Luv Is: Love At First Read.” Now, she’s cementing her stance as an artist with range as she stars in the hit GMA series “Black Rider.”

Marco has been eyed as a drama actor-in-the-making having starred in Kapuso shows such as “Magpakailanman: A Christmas Miracle: The Madrid Family Story,” “Start-Up PH,” “Tadhana: Hanggang Kailan,” “Luv Is: Love At First Read,” and “Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko: The Chinese Lion.” Together with Ashley, Marco is securing his mark in the industry as he stars in “Black Rider.”

Like AshCo, these two were initially launched as part of the Sparkle Teens. But as they grow out of their comfortable shell, Princess and Bryce are trying their hand at being a love team.

With the voice of an angel, Princess is hard to resist. Her vocals know no bounds being cast in the prestigious London West End production of "The Sound of Music." But apart from singing, she’s also making a name for herself in the realm of acting. She has starred in various Kapuso shows such as “Sherlock Jr.,” “Daig Kayo Ng Lola Ko: Ang Kuwento sa Likod ng Bahay Kubo,” “Onanay,” “My Special Tatay,” “Start-Up PH,” “Magpakailanman: The Mother Who Left: The Fralei Gabor Story,” and “Royal Blood.” She even landed a role in the 2020 Metro Manila Film Festival entry titled "Magikland."

Bryce effortlessly captivates everyone with his charm and kind smile. But it’s not just his pretty face and attractive height that keep the attention on him, it’s also his knack for acting. He has starred in hit Kapuso shows such as “Destined to be Yours,” “My Special Tatay,” “I Left My Heart in Sorsogon,” “Raising Mamay,” Nakarehas na Puso,” “Happy ToGetHer: Heart,” and “The Missing Husband.” Alongside veteran actress Iza Calzado, Bryce also starred in the recently released horror film “Shake Rattle and Roll Extreme.”
