Valerie Garcia (born May 26, 1987) is a Filipina actress. She is well-known for her role as Bangs, the mysterious punk rocker in ABS-CBN's sitcom Let's Go and Gokada Go. The nickname "Bangs" came about because her bangs cover her face.
Garcia was popular in her hometown of Davao City where she was one of the hosts of the local variety show, K.S.P. (Kada Sabado, Party) of ABS-CBN Davao. She was discovered by Davao talent manager Gatchi Gatchalian in the reality show Campus Crush where she emerged as the female grand winner.

She has pleased her burgeoning male fans with her appearance as Maxim covergirl in November 2008. While donning sexy outfits showing her very curvaceous figure, with no hint of brassiere or panties even, in the cover, in the attached poster, and some of the pictorials, the pictorial was very wholesome consistent with her very wholesome image.
Bangs is the 2009 calendar girl for Tanduay .
Her next project will be ABS-CBN's upcoming teleserye, "Habang May Buhay" starring with Ms. Judy Ann Santos and Derek Ramsay. She will play as Judy Ann's half-sister.
