Fans of Kapamilya star Alexa Ilacad were reminded of her role as young Bobbie Salazar in the film “Four Sisters Before the Wedding.” Like the character she played, Alexa also excels in academics and this year she will end college with a perfect GWA of 1.0 on her last trimester.
Alexa recently shared the good news with her followers on Instagram.
“Last hoorah for my last term in college. I am over the moon as I type this right now but finally… I AM GRADUATING!,” she captioned a photo of her with the announcement that she made the Dean’s List in her final trimester at Treston College.
“Despite all the obstacles thrown my way, I was determined to finish strong. I came, I studied, I conquered!,” Alexa proudly said.
Fans were quick to point out her similarity with Bobbie.
Congrats ulit sayo Alexa!!!

With some even quoting the iconic line from the hit 2013 comedy-drama.
Oo, Bobbie, ikaw. ... Ikaw yung matalino, ikaw yung maganda. Lahat ikaw na!"Four Sisters and a Wedding"
"Oo, Bobbie, ikaw. Ikaw yung wala lang, kahit anong gawin mo, ang galing-galing mo. Ako, kahit ano'ng kayod ko, kahit anong pagod ko, kahit kelan hindi ako lumapít sa galing mo. Ikaw yung matalino, ikaw yung maganda. Lahat ikaw na!” https://t.co/UEQdOYCU16

While it was Bea Alonzo who played the titular role in the original “Four Sisters and a Wedding", Alexa played the younger Bobbie in its prequel “Four Sisters Before the Wedding.”
In a Twitter post where a fan praised her hard work, Alexa replied that she lacked sleep and was a “high-functioning zombie.”
Ano muna yung tulog!?? Nakakain ba yun!?? 🥲 jk. pero to answer your question, madalas hindi talaga ako nakakatulog dahil sa insomnia ko. I’m basically a high-functioning zombie. https://t.co/MDa5eTsRkS
