Modeling and acting career
Mai Lee Ang entered the showbiz industry in the 20th century. Initially, she used the name Gwen Garcia, but as a result of her manager Jessica Rodriguez’s suggestion, she dropped the last letter “a” in Garcia to adopt the name “Garci.” There were a lot of celebrities using the name “Garcia” in the Philippines showbiz and so by having a unique name, she would quickly push her brand forward.
By the age of 16 years, she was already modeling! Young Garci participated and won in a local Body Shots contest. Her long career can be broken down into the following parts:
1. Gwen Garci and Viva Hot Babes
In 2001, a girl’s group consisting of s*xy up-comers was formed by Viva Entertainment. Maui Taylor, Kristine Jaca, Sheree, Mykes Hermandez, Hazel Cabrera, Jen Rosendani along with Gwen, joined it. It was later branded “Hot Babes.”
The band was officially launched in 2003’s January edition of the FHM Magazine. The girls were introduced to all the Filipinos in a much-publicized copy of “Hotstuff” Magazine. During the first month, lots of copies were sold, forcing the company to print 4 million pieces for the following months.
The group members, including Gwen, were marketed as a pool of s*xy screen sirens. Soon they released the first special Hot Babes film with Garci, Jaca, and Cabrera starring along with Ella V, Anna Leah, and Agcaoili, who had supporting roles.
2. Gwen Solo ventures
Despite being loved by many, Garci's career never took off as she only appeared in softc*re film scenes. This forced her to adopt other solo ventures such as wedding modeling from which she churned out some earning and also built her name.
3. Gwen’s new life in Las Vegas
The sensual starlet embarked on a new life in 2013. Speaking in an interview with ABS CBN News, the Hot Babe former member cited that she left the group to venture into other opportunities such as the Real Estate industry.
She, however, disclosed that she would rejoin the girls in the future. Gwen added on and said that she would go back to Philippine’s showbiz industry anytime she wants.
