Who is Divina Cavestany?

Divina Cavestany was considered to be Maam Ella's heiress apparent in many roles because of her stunning similarity to the dame - the classic looks, the acting style. She played many memorable roles for Teatro, including Antigone (by Jean Annouilh), Laura (in The Glass Menagerie/Mga Laruang Kristal), and Regina in Ghosts/Mga Multo (Henrik Ibsen).

Divina is married to Marcelino Cavestany Jr., a former member of Cecile Guidote Alvarez's Philippine Educational Theater Association. The pair joined Teatro Pilipino while they were still in college.
