Yam Concepcion is Viva's 'newest sweetheart'

MANILA, Philippines -- The "future headliner" of Viva Entertainment's sexy flicks is being launched in a big way -- via a debut appearance on the cover of men's magazine FHM.

Dubbed as "Viva's newest sweetheart," upcoming actress Yam Concepcion is featured in the October 2012 issue of FHM, where she is seen posing nude on its cover.

A relative newbie to showbiz, Concepcion, according to FHM's official website, is being groomed by the talent management arm of Viva Entertainment to headline its upcoming sexy films.

Now intent on making a name for herself, the "rakista" (she is a drummer for a grunge band called Ursa Minor) is also described as "[Viva's] Anjanette Abayari look-alike" on the production company's profile page for the sexy starlet.

Abayari is a beauty queen-turned-actress who gained popularity in the '90s, notably for portraying the fictional superhero Darna in 1994.

Apart from sharing a resemblance to the former beauty queen, Concepcion may be remembered by some for having appeared on the cover of the defunct men's magazine Maxim in February 2010, and for starring in a number of music videos, including Mayonnaise's "Sinungaling."

Concepcion's appearance on FHM is one of the magazine's more daring covers in recent memory, as it features the first nude cover girl after a string of "bikini" outings.
