A perfect example of mixing between Filipino and Spaniard.
Not denying her spanish ancestry but it’s most likely really minuscule to the single digits. Filipinos like to overexaggerate their Spanish ancestry.

Juan was the son of José Pérez de Tagle and Carmen Domingo. Otilia was the daughter of José Álvaro Ortega and Hipólita Carvajal.
Remark: Though I believe that the surname Pérez de Tagle is of Spanish (Cantabrian) origin, I can’t verify that yet until José Pérez de Tagle’s ancestry could be expanded.
how much non Indigenous Filipino ancestry does she have?
I can’t explicitly say due to lack of documentation.
she is said to be related to Isabel Preysler on her father’s side (Pérez de Tagle line). I believe they both descend from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luis_S%C3%A1nchez_de_Tagle,_1st_Marquis_of_Altamira
Her Pérez de Tagle line came from San Juan, Manila (now Metro Manila).

If you don’t find his name in San Juan, try Binondo where his wife, Carmen Domingo, was born.
Start searching here in 1879 San Juan, Manila municipal census: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS72-HSW9-P
San Juan was a barrio of Santa Ana, Manila, in which its church survived during World War II. However, church records are not available yet as of now.
I am actually too lazy to do that research now. It’s pretty clear that she has some Spanish ancestry though.

I just met her yesterday and she was very pretty, but she didn’t seem very happy to meet everyone after her play. Probably because she was tired because she did a great job playing her part and was very funny. I wasn’t sure what her ethnicity she was though because I thought that her last name sounded Spanish but now I know. I also did think that she looked a little bit Asian.
