Actress, singer, and TV host Karylle has been trending on social media after alleged beef with Vice Ganda. Viewers called out Vice Ganda for his sarcastic manner of speaking towards Karylle in a recent episode of noontime TV series Showtime. While the two have cleared up the misunderstanding, fans of Karylle are still calling for more support for the actress-singer. If you’re one of many who want to support Karylle, you should check out these films and shows that she starred in and get to watching them ASAP:
Encantadia (and the sequels)
Perhaps one of Karylle’s most memorable works (if not the most), Encantadia is one of the most successful fantasy series on Philippine television. Set in the mystical world of Lireo, four sister princesses are chosen as the guardians of the kingdom’s powerful elemental gems. Things take a turn for the worse when one of the sisters decides to work with an enemy kingdom to usurp the throne of Lireo. Karylle plays the role of Alena, one of four sister princesses who possesses the water gem. She also reprises the role in the sequels Etheria and Encantadia: Pag-ibig Hanggang Wakas and in the spin-off Mulawin: The Movie.
The series tells the story of revenge undertaken by Lily Cruz (later on known as Ivy Aguas) against the rich and ruthless Ardiente family. While she only made a brief cameo, Karylle’s appearance was quite memorable. She entered the series in the final episode, as Venus, a former street kid adopted and trained by a crime group mistress to be her successor.
Moments of Love
Photographer Marco from modern times finds an old telephone through which he can only converse with one person: Divina, a woman from the past. Karylle plays the role of Lianne, the granddaughter of the Divina and a woman with whom Marco grows close.

After the accident, Adrian becomes jaded about life and love, but when he meets Althea, he becomes curious and fascinated with their hearts’ reactions to each other. Karylle plays the dual role of Iris, Adrian’s former girlfriend, and Jade, a girl who strongly resembles Iris.
