MANILA -- From esktra to the "next big thing."

That's the story of Phoebe Walker, as told by FHM when she graced the magazine's cover last April. 

The young actress started in supporting roles in "Moron 5 And The Crying Lady" and "The Trophy Wife." In 2015, she and her ex-boyfriend Matthew Edwards won "The Amazing Race Philippines," which came with a house and lot, a new car, and P2 million in cash. 

Then in last year's Metro Manila Film Festival, the sexy actress went home triumphant with a Best Supporting Actress award for her performance in "Seklusyon," in which she portrayed an enigmatic nun. The film took home a total of seven awards, including best director for Erik Matti. 

This year, she is part of another indie film project "Double Barrel" from "Ang Probinsyano" director Toto Natividad, which opens this week. 

In the film, which tackles drug-related issues, Walker plays leading lady to AJ Muhlach. In an interview on "Tonight With Boy Abunda," she admitted that she was nervous while shooting the steamy love scenes for the movie. 

"Nakakakaba siya when we did it," she said, explaining that only six people including the director was allowed to stay at the set. 

And although she is proud of the outcome of the love scene, Walker added that there's more to her than her sexy body. Get to know her more through these photos:
