The series marks Denise’s comeback with GMA-7 after being with ABS-CBN for 18 years.

Denise originally started as a talent of ABS-CBN as part of “Ang TV 2.” However, she transferred to GMA-7 in 2003.

She was part of the youth-oriented show “Click” and the telefantasyas “Mulawin” and “Encantadia.”

Denise then moved back to ABS-CBN where she was able to do different projects, with “Precious Hearts Romances: Midnight Phantom” as her big break. Her love team with Rafael Rosell was so well-received by viewers that they even had their own fan club called RafNise.

In 2010, Denise was doing the primetime series “Precious Hearts Romances: Kristine” when her character was suddenly written off. The following year, Denise successfully made a comeback and revealed that she got pregnant.

Since then, Denise would play lead and kontrabida roles in her TV projects like “Pintada,” “Annaliza,” “Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita,” “The Better Half,” “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” and “24/7.”

Her last project was the Piolo Pascual-Lovi Poe starrer “Flower of Evil,” aired in 2022.
