Top 10 Best Actresses In the Philippines

The Top Ten
1 Angel Locsin Angel Locsin is a Filipina television and film actress, commercial model, film producer and fashion designer.

Angel Locsin is indeed a very versatile and beautiful actress inside and out. No other actress or actors could ever be compared to her as she is totally the best of the best. She can manage to act very well on different genres (like fantasy, drama, action, comedy, romance, etc.), whether her role is protagonist, antagonist, or deuteragonist.

She is the underrated Queen of Fantasy, Drama, and Action. When she acts, you can see in her beautiful eyes, her gestures, and voice all the feelings/emotions that she has to give to give justice for every role.

With the issues that she had been facing, she manages to be good even when people starts judging her goodness. For me, she is the perfect beautiful package with both undeniably inner and outer beauty.

I wasn't a fan before until I saw one of her movies. It was superb! She acts from the heart and soul. She made me really cry. The most-awarded actress in her generation. I'm so happy for her for receiving 4 Best Actress Awards in just one movie. That is, of course, just in addition from the previous awards she's received. She was also nominated in EMMY which really made me proud of her. And whenever I watch her, I can't help but telling myself "This person has a kind heart. No matter what award she gets, her true award has always been given to her. Her pure heart.".

She acts from the heart and eyes can tell how good actress she is. She is the only Philippines actress that can perform any kinds of roles. They said that she is the Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Hally Berry of Philippine movies at the same time the female version of Chinese superstar Jacky Chan.

Angel locsin deserves to be the #1 Best actress in the Philippines because she's not only good in acting she's also down to eart, honest, and loving person. Shher name really reflects her personality. She did'nt post expensive clothes, shoes, Jewelry etc. she's very down to earth that's why many Filipinos inspired of her. All her shows will remain for the heart of filipinos because of her good acting skills. In international Angel recognized her good acting skill that brings proud to our country and that's the reason should angel deserves to be the best actress in her own country.

2 Marian Rivera Marian Rivera Gracia-Dantes, known professionally as Marian Rivera, is a Spanish Filipino commercial model and actress, best known for her roles in Marimar, Dyesebel, Amaya, and Temptation of Wife.

Marian Rivera is the only actress I can spend my last penny to watch her show. She's everything a celebrity should be. A complete packaged. I love it when her haters are going crazy over her. They even created a website and put her name as the most hated in the world laugh out loud. I couldn't stop laughing over the lists. It really got me thinking that up till now she still a threat to other actresses and their so called fantards are so restless to resort to that. Hello people no one can bring a star down. Give up already. Marian Rivera has no haters outside philippine. In fact she's the only pinoy star that has a lot of fan-base in other continents/countries. Cambodia, Vietnam. Malaysia, Africa you name them. She's blessed in everything yet still humble. She treats her fans with utmost love and humility both young and old. Marian will remain the best of her generation for me no one else.

She's the only Primetime Queen in the Philippines and she' well-loved by her millions of fans from all-over the world.. Altho' she's very much misinterpreted by others especially those who doesn't like her and haters, she's still fun to be with and warm to her friends and fans. She is so compassionate to those who are not so well in health and often visits in hospitals or any place where the patients are and give moral support or items, food and medicines for help. She's Marian Rivera, our beautiful inside and out Primetime Queen, the #9 most prettiest face in the world, once an FHM #1 sexiest, very excellent actress(many wonder why she hasn't got any prominent award in acting)a very good dancer, music and dance hits, blockbuster movies, T.V. comedy hits(proven and tested a comedien), hits T.V. series and many many others to mention. She's Marian Rivera of the Philippines... Thanks a lot

Marian is a versatile actress, a good one. She is an Asian Superstar, she was titled Primetime Queen because all her soap operas in different genre were all hits not only in Philippines but also in other Asian's country. Majority of her rival shows lose in ratings, that includes the shows of Angel Locsin whose number 1 in your list and never become popular in Asian's country. Angel Locsin has a very bad diction that most of the time becomes distraction when she's acting. Marian Rivera not only a good actress but also beautiful on screen. Epitome of natural beauty.

She's the one.., well loved by everybody, inspite of her haters... Still she's still on top for God is her guide to everything she does.. She receives always good karma for she just leave eveything to good to whatever haters spread rumors about her.. She is the woman with a big, heart especially for the poor and the needy.. She inspires everybody by sending good smile, good vibes and happiness to all her fans, supporters, friends and even to her bashers.. As she said.. Good vibes labg palagi and spread the love.. So she is more blessed for that kind of character.. We love marian.. Our number one..

3 Nora Aunor

Nora Aunor is the number one living actress of Asia. She has proven it not only once, twice, thrice, many, many times in both local and international competitions. She is 3 years senior than me that is why I know where she came from to be become the only Filipino actress that beat foreign films during her prime times. Distributors of foreign films were afraid to open their films simultaneous with Nora. They normally started their films showings 2 or 3 days behind Nora's new film. For 2 decades she was the flag bearer of Filipino movie world. Her contemporaries were far behind at second or third place. Theaters have to use long, long ropes to guide movie goers. It was always like a procession was passing by. During mall or provincial tours, people could not be satisfied if they could not make a glimpse of the one and only superstar. At 60, she is still like a century-wine that even tastes better and better and better. Long live Nora Aunor and always the model of deprived Filipinos who ...more

Who posted these articles about the top actresses from #1-8? Look, the one who posted and voted top 1-8 are not familiar in terms of a quality actress. If we based a real quality acting no doubts #1 is Nora Aunor, because of exemplary acting locally and internationally. A brilliant one in terms of a real quality actress, the best among the best, the one & only superstar at all time. #2 Vilma Santos, an archrival of the superstar. One of the greatest actress in the phils w/ a quality acting. #3 Snooky Serna, #4 Hilda Koronel #5 Maricel Soriano, #6Lorna Tolentin0, #7 Sunshine Dizon, #8 Iza Calzado, #9 Judy Sta Maria and Marian Rivera, #10 Judy Ann Santos. KIm Chu, Angel Locsin, Ann Curtis, Maja Salvador, Bea Alonzo are not really a good actress. They do not have a deeper acting and can't act using their eyes. Let us not based on popularity but the real essence of being a good versatile actress.

The only Filipino actress directed by national artist directors, who can beat that? there are a lot of good actresses who acts their roles, but only Nora and only her lives her roles. When you watch her movies, you no longer watch Nora but the character of the role she is portraying. Only she can do that. Just what director Joel Lamangan said, Nora baptized him on the true meaning of being an actress. Nora will always be the only best actress of all time, of all generations. Long live NORA!

4 Kathryn Bernardo

Kathryn Bernard has been doing a good thing ever since. Even their films of her real life boyfriend Daniel Padilla hit the highest grossing Filipino film of all time. She's beautiful, everyone can see it. Her tantalizing eyes that makes you stare. Her fierce aura makes you amaze in her beauty. It feels like heaven seeing her. Many people idolized her real personalities and accepted her what ever she is.

I love her natural beauty and she has good morals and principles.
Watching her teaches good character and behavior. She is always humble and has a beautiful heart

I believe that Kathryn Bernardo, the Most Promising Female Star of Movies and Televisions, Princess of Phil. Movies and Televisions, Star Music Princess, Ultimate Kapamilya Teen Queen, and the Most Influential Teen Actress,is capable because she is one of the most, if not the most, bankable, influential and phenomenal artist of this generation. She has a very strong personality that can inspire millions and millions of people around the world.

Kathryn Bernardo is the epitome of true beauty and passion. She is not just your typical actress. She shows her wit and grit to every interviews and she puts in so much effort and determination in perfecting her craft as an actress to give the audience what they deserve. She may be neglected by others but she still stand strong. A perfect role model to all her fans.

5 Judy Ann Santos

Of course! She's unbeatable...she could be level with those veterans stars. Whoever will be pair with her for sure his career would be as shine as the stars. & I think ABS CBN did a wrong choice of taking away her teleserye because almost the new generations could only be famous in just a very short moment of their career. Unlike Judy Ann even she took a rest after some time but still she's still shining, the love & admiration of all people never been change.

All kinds of attitude as a model of every individuals here in the Philippines was carried by miss Judy Ann Santos in her attitude, actress, personality and most especially in her family she's a good sister, daughter mother and a wife as well if you compare the life or as an actress of miss Judy Ann Santos who would it be nothing. My pastor told me if I could have a inspiration aside our God savior, the life of Judy Ann Santos is the admirable one

She's the last big star to make it to superstardom in the Philippines cinema. She can make you cry and laugh and whatever roles she portray she always do it with flying colors. More so, she's a role model for mothers, daughters and a great chef. Kudos to you my one and only favourite actress in the Philippines.

Judy Ann Santos is the only Queen Of Pinoy Soap Opera and The Junior Superstar Of Philippine Showbiz, She is also an International Best Actress.

6 Maricel Soriano

Maricel Soriano is undoubtedly the Best Actress among her contemporaries, The third most awarded actress in Philippine Showbiz, no one can ever equalled the superb acting ability of the Diamond Star... Versatile as well, she can portray any roles with much aplomb... A consummate actress and A 1 list actress indeed... Hurray to the one and only Queen!

For me, Ms. Maricel Soriano should be included on the list simply because she's a versatile actress. She can do drama, action and comedy. Very rare for a celebrity to be able to excel in all genres. That's why she is the "Diamond Star" of Philippine Showbiz. No one comes close among her contemporaries. Hail to the Queen. One of the finest and consummate actress of all time.

The only one who can cross genres-drama, action, comedy, horror, commercial, indie- and finds success in all. The only actress of her generation who is still relevant today. Tenure, capacity, accolades, and tenacity. She's got it all. The other nine actresses on this list will easily bow down to her.

The most versatile actress in Philippine Cinema! No one can't argue with that. She can do both drama and comedy in the most significant way! She's always included in surveys for Top 10 All-Time Best Actress.

7 Anne Curtis Anne Ojales Curtis-Smith, also known as Anne Curtis-Smith or simply Anne Curtis, is a Filipina-Australian actress, television host, recording artist, and VJ in the Philippines.

She had lots of best actress awards as we all know unlike others who just ranked because of votes. She's got everything... For me she is perfect.

Box office queen, concert sweetheart, twitter queen, T.V.-endorser queen, billboard queen, platinum recording artist, national sweetheart, T.V. host, primetime goddess, award winning actress and host, international actress, angelina jolie in the country

Simple words to describe why she deserve to be the Best Actress in the Philippines. As of now, "ANNE CURTIS is the Philippines SUPERSTAR based from E!

She is also the "FIRST filipina actress to endorsed a well-known & expensive shampoo product that also endorses the likes of J.Lo, Beyonce, Penelope Cruz, etc., which is L'Oreal".

10 Vilma Santos

The top two spots should be a toss between Vilma Santos and Nora Aunor. They're the Philippine Cinema's best actresses. They're also the most awarded actresses in the Philippines--and they have the trophies to show for it. No other actress in the country can match or even come close to what these two actresses have accomplished in their career. They're the last two real queens of local cinema.

For the very simple reason that she is still on the limelight until now. She in indeed an icon in Philippine cinema proving worth in all aspects. She can be as great as what they say the universal actress Nora Aunor. Ms. Santos for me is one of the greatest for she combine acting & public service. She has a good reputation as a public servant...and this roles lead to perfection as a real actress in the world. Shes simply the best for me.

Vilma Santos is the Best Actress of Philippine Cinema of All Time! Her movies and the roles she portrayed are significant, memorable and varied. She is the only actress who is able to mix great acting, outstanding film and a box-office movie all at the same time.

The unsinkable, unparalleled, uncomparable and an unmatched female celebrity who outshines everyone not only in showbiz but also in politics... Her charismatic presence, ageless beauty inside and out, bankability, pure and clean heart are some of the words that best described The Star For All Seasons...
Ms Vilma Santos!

The Contenders
11 Bea Alonzo

She shows depth in acting even at a very young age when she started in the business, portraying roles older than her actual age. Every character makes a mark among the viewers. She keeps getting better and better, and even the veteran actors loved working with her. A magazine article years ago described Bea as having the "grace amd elegance of Gloria Romero and Susan Roces, the charm and acting prowess of Sharon, Vilma, Maricel and Nora". She is exceptionally talented and much deserving of the tilte 'This generation's movie queen'.

I am watching every movie of her! I love the way she talk, cry and especially the way she act. She have the talent of acting. She deliver her role's so fantastic and great! And honestly speaking I'm a fan of her! Bea, just continue doing a movie so fabulous and I will support you all over again...

Julia Montes is the best actress in her generation. She got her fame from talent and hard work. Her high caliber acting made her ready for mature and more challenging roles at a young age. She can get along with veteran actors and actresses. She is the youngest versatile actress.

She's pretty, kind, great actress. Maybe not for you but for me she's prefect.
I really love her so much. I think she's the next Claudine Barretto. Even she's not a barretto.

To be honest I just cannot get enough of her. I always love to watch her show and movies. So far she has a good reputation and beautiful inside and out.

She is one of the few stars who maintained good values in and out of showbiz. Others may have great achivements but their value as star will fade away soon. She is the orig Multimedia Superstar. They said other is Ultimate but where is the value? I look up for those who has a great impact to all generation not just once but for all time generation. Jolina has no best actress yet, but for millions outhere, she is one of the best actesses, though because of the new aspiring actresses, she gives way for them to shine but the real talent will remain at the end.. And she is the real ultimate survivor, the multimedia star icon and great person for her family. To identify an actress as best, look beyond of her... Not just what she is doing now

One the versatile actress... She can do anything
