We’ve known her as one of the successful graduates of "Goin' Bulilit," along with Kathryn Bernardo, Jane Oineza, and Miles Ocampo to name a few. From being a cute bubbly mestiza – we witnessed her transformation as she took the titular villain role in the 2010 remake of "Mara Clara."
Soon after, she became a certified household name with major roles in primetime teleseryes such as "Walang Hanggan" and "Ikaw Lamang." Both programs even earned her recognition as Princess of Television and Gawad Tanglaw awardee for Best Actress.
Eventually, she also received her second Gawad Tanglaw Best Actress award for her role in the former Kapamilya Gold hit series "Doble Kara." Definitely an artist who has proven time and again that she is more than just a pretty face!
