5 of Erich Gonzales’ most iconic roles on the big screen!

The true measure of Erich Gonzales’ quality as a screen darling is not by the number of lead characters she’s played but by the depth of every portrayal she’s made on the big screen! 

After showing her impressive acting chops as a supporting actress in romance films “Paano Kita Iibigin” and “Love Me Again”, Erich went on to make her own mark as a leading lady both in film and television. Take a look at Erich’s most memorable movie roles below, from her role as a confused bride in the romantic-comedy “I Do” to her conversion into a bitter monster in the psychological-thriller “Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang”! 

Yumi in “I Do” (2010) 

In addition to her undeniable chemistry with Enchong Dee, Erich’s ability to juggle an intense range of emotions drew us to her hopeless romantic (and unexpectedly pregnant!) character in the movie. See how Yumi (Erich) tries to get her happily-ever-after despite all the curveballs life throws at her relationship with Lance (Enchong)! 

Corazon in “Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang” (2012) 

When Erich top-billed this thriller masterpiece, she truly proved that she could shine not just in romance, comedy, and drama projects! Versatile is the exact word we would use to describe Erich based on her performance as Corazon, a resentful woman who puts an entire town under a fatal curse. 

Joey in “Suddenly It's Magic” (2012) 

This 2012 romantic-comedy marked a lot of firsts for Erich, including playing the role of a baker who’s unlucky in love, and being paired with Thai actor Mario Maurer in the first Filipino-Thai movie collaboration between the two countries. Watch more of Erich and Mario’s magical team-up in the Supercut below: 

Erin in “Once a Princess” (2014) 

Even as heartbreaker Erin, Erich still exuded innocent charm that made her character remain likable throughout the film. From the moment she blindsided Leonard (Enchong Dee) to her present-day reality of being Damian’s (JC de Vera) wife, Erin took us on a worthwhile journey of love! 

Nicole in “The Significant Other” (2018) 

It’s not the easiest thing to play the role of “the other woman”, but Erich did it with such class and heart that it’s nearly impossible not to root for her. Her character, Nicole, never meant to bear bad intentions, but when push came to shove, she fought for her right to love and be loved.
