She starred with award-winning Kapamilya actor John Lloyd Cruz in a hit trilogy which started with “A Very Special Love” in 2008, “You Changed My Life” in 2009, and concluded with “It Takes a Man and a Woman” in 2013. Recently, their hit tandem reunited in another box-office hit, “Finally Found Someone”.
