Of course, who would forget her depiction of the iconic Daniela Mondragon-Bartolome of the highly talked about afternoon soap opera Kadenang Ginto?

In her almost two decades in the industry, Denise has indeed already proven how a versatile actress she is through her teleserye stints. But among the characters she portrayed, it’s arguably in her kontrabida roles in which she shines brighter, such as playing Bianca in La Luna Sangre, Monica in The Haunted, and Delilah in 24/7.
She may be hated because of those roles, but it’s definitely a different story in real life for many people admire her with how she takes good care of and keeps her tight bond with her charming toy enthusiast son Alejandro.
Her entrance in the primetime series Pamilya Ko as Tina indeed came as a surprise, but more so when she figured in intense confrontations with Maris Racal’s character Peachy Ann.

And just like her character, she’s also willing to do everything for the sake of her beloved daughter, who she named Penelope in remembrance of her late father.
