Kris Bernal

Many fans describe Kris Bernal as the ultimate girl next door, perky, sweet, simple and able to liven up any room. With her fresh-faced good looks and pleasing personality, it’s no wonder why this princess of daytime drama shows has continued to gain fans ever since she first hit the scene in 2007.

Kristine Ann Tan Bernal or simply Kris Bernal was born on May 17, 1989 and began her showbusiness career through GMA-7’s hit reality talent show StarStruck. When asked what prompted her to enter showbusiness, she mentions that it’s always been her dream and it’s also a great way to help out her family. As the reality show ended, she won the award for ultimate love team along with her StarStruck batchmate Mart Escudero.

Mart and Kris would actually be paired with each other after the reality show in the GMA superhero series Zaido. However, it seemed that even early on, fellow StarStruck contestant Aljur Abrenica would be the actor whose pairing with the pretty actress would register as a hit to many. Her character figured into a love triangle with the two other actors’ roles and ultimately, it would be the tandem with Aljur that would win out.

In her next series, Dyesebel, which was a remake of the hit movie and comics series by Philippine comics great Mars Ravelo, Kris Bernal would once more be paired with Aljur in supporting roles.

In her next series, Dyesebel, which was a 2008 remake of the hit movie and comics series by Philippine comics great Mars Ravelo, Kris Bernal would once more be paired with Aljur in supporting roles. The series was a hit with Filipino audiences as it also showcased Marian Rivera who was quickly making her name at that point.
Aljur and Kris would also work together in their next series, Luna Mystika where they also play supporting roles. More of Kris’ acting chops are showcased as she plays the role of Malou, a tomboyish girl who figures in a romance with Aljur who played the supernatural role of a mythical tikbalang.

2009’s All My Life had the two actors in lead roles as they played Jules and Romina, childhood friends who grow up estranged but who soon find a reason to fall in love. In an interview, Kris expressed a lot of gratitude towards her home network upon being given the chance to head a primetime TV series of their own.
But their network clearly saw the success of their tandem and in January of the very next year, the pair were once more given another primetime series. The Last Prince was their foray into headlining a romantic fantasy series with the fanciful conceit of interweaving elements of popular fairy tales such as Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast into its plot. The two would also be joined by the beautiful Bianca King who was the main antagonist in the story. The program would end up running for 118 episodes—longer than the pair’s previous shows All My Life and Luna Mystika.

However, it soon came time for the Aljur and Kris tandem to end and for the two actors to move on to other projects. Kris recalls that after their show The Last Prince, management had explained to them that new shows had been lined up for each of them. When she heard the news, she couldn’t help but tear up as the two had worked with each other for three years already.

But the change soon proved a fruitful one as her next TV work would earn her the moniker Princess of Daytime Drama. With her new show Koreana which premiered on October of 2010, her acting talent and capability to carry a show without her partner Aljur came into the forefront. Many fans were pleased with her performance and the nuanced character of a Filipina-Korean which she portrayed.

After Koreana, Kris has proven to TV audiences that she could carry both primetime and daytime acting work which is why Kris’ next two projects are Machete, once more with Aljur and Time of my Life which would be with a new partner, Mark Herras. This just goes to prove that this sweet, charming Princess of Daytime Drama is a princess of primetime as well.
