Award-winning Kapuso actress Therese Malvar is actually related to Philippine national hero Jose Rizal.

As written in the book by Rizal’s grandniece Asuncion Lopez Bantug called “Lolo Jose: An Intimate and Illustrated Portrait of Jose Rizal” a page shows that the “Inagaw Na Bituin” actress is one of the descendants of Rizal.

According to GMA Network, this is because General Malvar’s son married one of Rizal’s sisters.

Do you know other celebrities who are relatives of our national heroes?
