Real Name: Rosemary Joy Garcia Screen name: Diana Zubiri
Diana Zubiri’s first movie was entitled Itlog in 2002 where she was paid only P50,000.00. Ten Thousand of which went to her manager Jaime Mercado for his commission.
Diana is not related to newly-elected Senator of the Philippines, Juan Miguel Zibiri, a known political figure in Bukidnon, a province in the northern part of Mindanao.
In October 29, 2002, her FHM controversial and almost naked photo shot on top of EDSA-Shaw flyover in Mandaluyong City, got severe punches from City Mayor Benhur Abalos who later filed charges against her and FHM Philippines. Abalos also later withdrew after Diana and her manager Jojo Gabinete issued apology. The controversy made Diana Zibiri an instant celebrity.
Zubiri auditioned at ABS-CBN Talent Center but was rejected three times before heading to Japan at 16 and work there as entertainer.
Today, Diana Zubiri is one of the lead women cast of Zaido, a superhero-kind of television program aired daily over GMA Network.
