Masaya ko. Kahit eto pa lang ako. Eto pinaniniwalaan ko. At sapat sakin to. Ayoko ng sobra. Dun ako sa sapat. Kaya masaya ako.”

(I’ve been in the industry for twenty-five years. You’d think, working that long, you’ve already learned a lot. Achieved a lot. Proved a lot. But here I am. I know this is still all I am. I’m happy. Even if I’ve only gone this far. I believe in this. And this is enough for me. I don’t want too much. I’m for what’s enough. That’s why I’m happy.)

Panganiban got her first regular show at the age of six when she joined the cast of the children’s variety show “Ang TV”. As she grew up, she took on more mature roles, such as her role in “Santa Santita” where she received Best Actress nominations in the Film Academy of the Philippines, FAMAS Awards and ENPRESS Golden Screen Awards. She also gained praise for her role in “A Love Story”.

As a comedienne, Panganiban has been famous for her funny catchphrases and one-liners, earning her the nickname “hugot queen.” Some of her funniest lines appear in the book “Para Kay Ex” by Beau Ang, for which she wrote the foreword. She’s currently one of the regulars of the gag show “Banana Split”.

Panganiban received Best Actress honors from the 2014 Cinema One Originals Film Festival and the 13th Gawad Tanglaw Awards, for her role in “That Thing Called Tadhana”, which was also a major commercial and critical success. A sequel for the film has been hinted at by Panganiban and co-star JM de Guzman. JB
