Boasting an impressive list of body of work, Judy Ann Santos is one of the few actresses in the Philippines who have achieved both critical and commercial success, easily making her a movie star. As a child, Judy Ann appeared in plethora of movies such as Sa Akin Parin Ang Bukas, Lost Command, Dyesebel, Impaktita, and Dog Tag: Katarungan Sa Aking Kamay. She then left a huge impact in film when her TV series Mara Clara was adapted for motion picture. Judy Ann enjoyed more success as a teen star with Paano Ang Puso Ko, Muling Ibalik Ang Tamis Ng Pag-Ibig, Gimik: The Reunion, Isusumbong Kita Sa Tatay Ko, Esperanza and more. In 2004, Judy Ann made a career turning decision when she starred in critically acclaimed movie Sabel, wherein she won Best Actress awards from Gawad Urian, FAP Awards, and ENPRESS Awards. It was a departure from her earlier work because Sabel tackled very mature topics. She was then recognized again for her acting in Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo, and Ploning, winning more Best Actress awards. In 2008, she co-produced and topbilled Ploning, which earned a total of 23 awards from both local and international award-giving bodies. She starred in fewer movies as she chose being a homemaker but still managed to appear in successful movies such as Si Agimat, Si Enteng, At Ako, Hating Kapatid, T’Yanak and more.

Television

At the tender age of eight years old, Judy Ann Santos started her career in the TV series Kaming Mga Ulila, where she played a minor role. Nevertheless, she earned her first break when she topbilled Ula, Ang Batang Gubat. But it was in Mara Clara where Judy Ann sent big waves in the Philippines, quickly becoming a household name. Mara Clara spanned for a total of five years and gave Judy Ann the moniker of Queen of Pinoy Soap Opera. The TV series was quickly followed by Esperanza, which was another iconic and successful project of Juday. She went on to star in high-rating TV series Krystala, Sa Piling Mo, and Ysabella. In 2011, Judy Ann shifted her career on TV by hosting reality show Junior Masterchef: Pinoy Edition, which proved to be a very good move. She hosted more reality shows and established herself as the Queen of Reality TV.
