By definition, optimum means “best, finest, flawless.” Dubbed as “The Optimum Star,” Claudine Barretto’s take on her darling performances in film could very well be described in those words.
From comedy to drama to romance, Claudine dominated the early 2000s with the charisma of a sweetheart and with the skill of a seasoned actor. As she nabbed numerous Best Actress awards and nominations left and right, Claudine kept her appeal to the masses on a steady rise. Audiences were witness to Claudine’s versatility: from her unmatched performance as Vilma Santos’ rebellious daughter in “Anak” to her iconic team-up with her late ex-boyfriend Rico Yan in “Got 2 Believe”. She breathed a different life into every character yet made all of them distinctly her own.
