A Family Man

Representative Alfred Vargas’ blessings do not start and end with the hats he wears in public. Rep Alfred also enjoys a truly happy home life with his beautiful, loving and supportive wife Yasmine, their two lovely daughters; Alexandra, Aryana, and a recent addition to their family, a beautiful baby boy; Alfredo Cristano.

The hands-on parents raise their children together, instilling values of love, fear of God and the importance of family by the example they show them. His busy schedule is never a deterrent to Alfred’s finding and dedicating time for them – even in simple things like eating dinner or lunch at home as much as he can or attending to simple activities for his kids. At home, the actor and the congressman is simply husband and Dad.

From Actor to Public Servant

Despite his busy life as a public servant, his acting career is still in the upswing – capturing the hearts of the public in his leading man role opposite Carmina Villaroel and Jean Garcia in the top-rating soap opera “Kambal Karibal” on GMA network.

The handsome actor is a household name once again with the moniker “Allan” and “Bebe Ko,” Jean Garcia’s term of endearment to his character in the GMA show. Alfred said, “everywhere I go now, they call me Allan or ‘Bebe ko.’ Nakakatuwa. It shows that they do watch the soap,” he said acknowledging the fact that not everyone gets the gift of loyal fans. “My heart is happy. I am truly grateful to all my fans,” he said.

Alfred made an astonishing comeback on television via the remake of “Encantadia” in the role of Amarro (father of Aquil) two years ago. His presence was so well-received that another project became inevitable. “Kambal Karibal” was that project and the show continues to enjoy top ratings in the network in its time slot.

Alfred is pleasantly surprised at how his audience has patiently followed him and his career even after he took a hiatus from show business in 2010 to pursue politics. “I am just so grateful and lucky to have very loyal fans since my Encantadia 1 days. They have been with me throughout my journey as a young actor, a councillor, a congressman, and now as a part-time actor and producer. I love my fans so much. They are like family to me already,” he expressed.
When Alfred left the showbiz scene to try politics, that arena certainly made a winner out of him, too. He was elected Quezon City councilor in 2010 and went on to easily become the first representative of the newly-created fifth district of Quezon City in 2013. He won over his opponent with a staggering difference of 45,000 votes and was unopposed during the subsequent elections in 2016.

He credits that to the hard work he puts into doing his job, and the genuine service that was the backbone of his programs for his constituents. To this day, Alfred remains to be at the top of his game, loved by his people. Come election time in 2019, it will not be a surprise should the young, vibrant, and hardworking congressman wins handily to reclaim that congressional seat.
