Breakthrough (2004-2012)[edit]

In November 2004, at the age of 18, after portraying several supporting roles, she landed the lead and the title role in the movie, Santa Santita[7] opposite Jericho Rosales. The director of the film, Laurice Guillen and the producer, Tony Gloria of Unitel Pictures requested Johnny Manahan of ABS-CBN Talent Center to audition his talents for the role. “We auditioned 30 of them,” Guillen said. “Some of them had played supporting roles in films already. But we couldn't find what we were looking for among them. Then one day, Angelica Panganiban came to audition. And we found in her the actress we wanted.” Her performance in that film earned her three Best Actress nominations in the FAMAS,[8] FAP Luna, and ENPRESS Golden Screen Awards.[9] Eventually in the same year, she played a lead role in the soap opera, Mangarap Ka with Piolo Pascual. In 2005, she starred in drama series, Vietnam Rose with Maricel Soriano.

That series made her the Villain of the Year in the 1st Supreme to the Extreme Awards (Philippine Star),[11] and she earned Best Drama Actress nomination in the 23rd PMPC Star Awards for Television.[12]

In October 2008, Panganiban pioneered a comedy gag show, Banana Split in ABS-CBN. The show also featured Valerie Concepcion, Roxanne Guinoo, Dianne Medina, and Cristine Reyes. She's the only one who remained from the original cast when the show started its second season in 2009 up to the present.

Later that year, she also starred in the drama/romance movie, I Love You, Goodbye with her then boyfriend Derek Ramsay.

In the same year, she also received Best Comedy Actress nomination in the PMPC Star Awards for Television through Banana Split.[15]

The following year, Panganiban starred in Here Comes The Bride, a 2010 comedy film with Eugene Domingo, Tuesday Vargas, Jaime Fabregas, Tom Rodriguez, and John Lapus. The movie gained positive reviews from viewers and critics and enjoyed box office success. Panganiban won the Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role (Musical or Comedy) award in the 8th ENPRESS Golden Screen Awards for Movies.[16] Because of this film, Panganiban was hailed as the Comedy Actress of the Year in the 42nd Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation.[17] She also won as the Best Comedy Actress through Banana Split in the 24th PMPC Star Awards for Television.[18]

Panganiban topbilled a horror-comedy film, Bulong together with Vhong Navarro in February 2011. It was Star Cinema's opening salvo for that year and was directed by Chito Rono.[19][20] She also consistently demonstrated her comedic antics onscreen through Banana Split as she earned another Best Comedy Actress nomination in the 25th PMPC Star Awards for Television, and won the Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Gag or Comedy Program award in the ENPRESS Golden Screen Awards.[21]

Panganiban proved her versatility in acting when she received her second Best Supporting Actress award through the horror suspense film, Segunda Mano in the 60th FAMAS Awards.[22] The movie also starred Kris Aquino and Dingdong Dantes. It was an official entry in the 2011 Metro Manila Film Festival of Star Cinema with the AgostoDos Pictures, and MJM Productions.

Recent roles (2013-present)[edit]

The year 2013 is Panganiban’s late night TV domination doing both drama and comedy. February 11, 2013 marked her comeback in Philippine Primetime via television drama, Apoy Sa Dagat alongside Piolo Pascual and Diether Ocampo. It was Panganiban’s first time to play dual role in the series and first in the history of Philippine TV to have billed the lead star twice. Also, aside from her weekend Banana Split, a version of the gag show entitled, Banana Nite is now airing at weeknights after Bandila which she topbills together with fellow Banana Split stars: John Prats, Zanjoe Marudo, Jason Gainza, Pooh, Melai Cantiveros, Badjie Mortiz, Ryan Bang, Sunshine Garcia, Aiko Climaco with Alex Gonzaga, Boom Labrusca, Kim de Guzman, Jef Gaitan, and Kean Cipriano as additions.[23]

In 2014, Panganiban topbilled a comedy-satire film, Beauty in a Bottle with Angeline Quinto and Assunta de Rossi.[24] She also starred in a romantic comedy film entitled That Thing Called Tadhana opposite JM De Guzman. This was one of the entries in the 2014 Cinema One Originals Film Festival where Panganiban was hailed as Best Actress for two consecutive years.[25]

It was revealed during the ABS-CBN Trade Launch that Panganiban will play the iconic character of Madam Claudia Buenavista, originally played by Jean Garcia, in the 2015 remake of Pangako sa 'Yo. [26]

Personal life[edit]

Panganiban only learned about her adoption on January 5, 2010 after the taping of her gag show, Banana Split. She however, confessed she already had doubts about her identity even before that revelation.

In a tell-all interview with The Buzz, Panganiban disclosed that her biological mother died in 2008 and was buried in Singapore. She added that she did everything to find her biological father, Mark Charlson, whom she said did not try to find her because he thought that she and her mother had died in a car accident.[27] In November 2010, she was reunited with Charlson in Los Angeles, California after 24 years apart, when ABS-CBN gave her a week-long break from work.[28]
