When it comes to memorable performances only one actress top my list. Five decades, from being a child phenom to an a-1 caliber actress, Vilma Santos is no doubt the Meryl Streep of the Philippines. And maybe more. Maybe because Ms, Streep, didn’t start her illustrious career as child star.
Trudis - The year…an actress was born! Vilma acted like she’s been doing this craft for a long time eclipsing the dramatic tandem of Luis Gonzales and Lolita Rodrigues. Her most memorable scenes were with villainous Bella Flores which secured her winning the FAMAS best child actress of 1963!
