Lalaine is an American actress, singer, songwriter, and bassist. She is known for playing Miranda Sanchez on the Series Lizzie McGuire. Her parents are Filipino, from Batangas and Pampanga, respectively.
She has said:
People ask me, ‘Are you Spanish?’… I say I have Spanish in me but I’m not just Spanish. I’m proud of my ethnicities and I will always be proud of being a Filipino.
According to her IMDB page her Ancestry is Filipino with Spanish and Chinese ancestry so I would change her ancestry from “Filipino [including some Spanish]” to “Filipino [Spanish, Kapampangan, Tagalog, and Chinese]. And due to her Spanish and Asian ancestry I would add Eurasian as well.
Spanish and Chinese should be put outside of the brackets though. They aren’t Filipino ethnicities so it makes no sense to write “Filipino [including some Spanish]” as it’s written now. It’s kind of like writing “Cherokee Native American, including English”.
Her eyebrows give her away as East Asian.
