A child star from Exmouth has been named as the best child actress on TV in the Philippines.
Xia Vigor, eight, moved to the Philippines around five years ago with her father Alan.
She received the accolade at the ALTA Media Icon Awards.
This followed her starring in the TV show Langit Lupa, a family drama which aired on Filipino channel ABS-CBN, and worldwide on The Filipino Channel.
Xia said: “I love acting because I feel so good when I can see that I really make people happy.
“It’s such a joy to put a smile on everybody’s face.”
Xia made international headlines earlier this year when a Taylor Swift impersonation she performed on TV talent show Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids went viral on the internet.
She has also appeared in other TV shows, adverts, and a feature film, and has amassed 290,000 followers on Instagram.
