Top 10 Best Actresses In the Philippines

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

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.

She performs very well in acting. In fact, she received 4 acting awards this year (june 2013), one of which was LUNA which is the most prestigious award giving body in the PHIL., and was hailed film actress of the year for 2 consecutive years from 2 of the most prestigious award giving bodies in the Phil. And was nominated in EMMY awards which by the way no actress or actor of her generation ever achieved. She's very beautiful inside and out.

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.

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 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.

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..

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

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!

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.

Kathryn Bernardo

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

Most succesful actress in the philippines history and no one came close One of the most beautiful filipina ever One of the best actress in philippines history.

Box office royalty. All of the movies she starred on on are box office hits: She's Dating The Gangster, Crazy Beautiful You and more. Primetime bida sweetheart. She have starred on many high rating shows: Got To Believe, Pangako Sa'yo and more. Teen Queen. She is the certified Teen Queen of the Philippines for her many successes not just on the big screen but also on television. She have captured the hearts of many viewers through her amazing acting skills, kind heart and good soul. She knows how to cry on demand and to make people cry on the scenes she do. She is one of the best teen actresses in the nation. She can do drama (Pangako Sa'yo), romantic-comedy (Got To Believe), comedy (Sisterakas), horror (Pagpag) and romance (ALL OF THE SHOWS SHE STARRED ON w/ DANIEL PADILLA).

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.

Judy Ann Santos

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.

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

Maricel Soriano

3rd most awarded actress in Philippine cinema. A certified movie icon as recognized officially by FAMAS and Eddy Award. She has starred in more than 100 movies spanning more than 3 decades of artistic excellence unparallelled by any other actress in the country.

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.

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.

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! News Asia where she will have a special documentary and the FIRST and ONLY filipina actress to be featured. 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". She is also the "FIRST filipina actress to reach 1 million followers on twitter and now it reached 5 MILLION FOLLOWERS and still counting". She is also the "FIRST filipina actress who is a non-singer but end to be successful one by having a Blockbuster Concert locally and internationally. She also have won several times as BEST ACTRESS for her movie No Other Woman. With so many first to mention. ANNE CURTIS deserves to be the "NO. 1 BEST ACTRESS IN THE PHILIPPINES" because aside from what I just said she also have the heart of an angel who cares for the ...more

Anne is a great performer at the same time she proved a lot in her career. I can say that Anne Curtis is the most popular star having 7 million twitter followers. #25 smartest twitter users lined up with the big names in Hollywood. First filipina actress who featured in e news Asia, People Asias National Sweetheart, An international star in a Hollywood indie movie blood ransom, won in Razzie awards in Hollywood as Best Vampire, She will be doing an international in cable channel, Multi Awarded Actress, Most awarded young fashion icon, Top covergirl, country's Leading endorser, Well known as a box office star in films has succesful album, T.V. shows abd concerts, cery indemand and commercially effective product endorsers, Countless billboard in Metro Manila.
Multi Awarded T.V. Host, Very popular in social media, Bankable actress. Most beautiful filipina

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

For me, anne deserves to be the best actress this time. Aside from being a top endorser, she is a very talented actress. She could lead in any role and will be suitable for her. 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.

Kim Chiu

Hey! My beauty queen, I love you so much. You are beautiful in and out. She is a game changer, there is something about her that gives all her movies vibes. Keep acting for me oh my Celyn beauty

She has proven to be a versatile actress. She's known to be a very good and wffective dramatic actress which earned her the title of the primetime proncess due to her serieanof top rating teleseryes but in her recent movie she showcased a different genre that is comedy which earned great reviews. She came out naturally very funny. She is considered one of the brightest stars and most successful artists of her generation.. She has one of the prettiest faces in showbiz and also a model figure.

Kim is the best actress for me because
She nails comedy movies
Romcoms
And drama movies and telesyres.
Only the best can act in those three categories plus she has won so many best actress awards.
The directors are not giving her a chance to prove herself in matured roles

Kim is a versatile actress, she had already everything whoever leading man to be paired with her, she knows how to bring the scene into best of the best also, when it comes to acting she naturally played every role that she would do and as you can see the rating kim's telerserye never goes down in top 3 most of it number 1'! She is really the best.

Maja Salvador

Maja is one of the big name in showbiz but inspite garnering the best actress trophies, she doesn't mind accepting supporting roles to help a series for someone or a friend. She maintained her feet on the ground and she's one whom you can't hear anything bad towards anyone, be it a comment or a joke. She is smart. Her simple but witty and happy personality draws her fans and others to like and love her.

Maja Salvador is one of the best actress on her generations. She is very versatile on whatever characters she portrayed. She is beautiful inside and out. I have seen her so many times and she never changed from the 16 yrs. girl looking for his dad Up to now. she remains humble and grounded. She Loves her fan and very Polite to every actors and actress she worked with. FOR ME SHE IS THE BEST ACTRESS...

When you can portray a character like she does, and with such emotions, now that's versatility. She is like a chameleon she transforms into her role and does it so well. She is not only versatile but also one of the prettiest actresses today. MAJA YOU ARE THE BEST!

Maja Salvador is so sweet cute beautiful out & inside very humble & greatful a versatile actress the next mega star or a superstar of her generation today honestly! Maja is love & adored by so many fans from all around the world. She is a star a talented dancer a singer a model an actress! Thank you! x

Vilma Santos

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 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.

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
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...

Well shes a very good actress, versatile when it comes to acting, shes very beautiful, the face and even her skin color, (flawless), everything in her is beautiful but importantly, she has a good moral values, at her age in showbiz shes consider as one that counts her reputation. Hurray for Bea.

She is the Drama Princess of the Philippines. ABS CBN gave her this opportunity. She's also considered the Philippines Sweetheart and the only Pinay Barbie Doll.

Jolina Magdangal

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
