Kapamilya actress Arci Muñoz can tick all these boxes- drama, comedy, action, romance, sexy roles. She’s done it all. So we’re taking the spotlight on her acting brilliance through this montage showing some of her most outstanding performances worthy of an accolade.
Arci made us cry buckets through the character of Betty in Pamilya Ko. She played the selfless friend of the Mabungas, in love with her best bud Chico (JM De Guzman). Depicting a woman friend-zoned and heartbroken many times, Arci delivered some of the most dramatic scenes in the series.
There’s captivating honesty in that scene where she subtly confessed her feelings for Chico but he retorted with lines hinting that she’s only a best friend. Arci closed her eyes, as though wanting to escape the hurt and at the same time swallow the bitter truth. Pretending she’s fine, she smiled through tears and made everything look so beautifully moving.
The sultry actress showcased drama peppered with sensuality in Pasion De Amor, her first assignment as a Kapamilya. She was effective in bringing out the trauma that cripples a victim of sexual assault.
Another scene mounted with fluid versatility is when her character had an intense argument with Sari (Ellen Adarna). But their mom meddled and she was told to compose herself because they have important guests to entertain. From the emotional Norma who just engaged in a sibling hullaballoo, Arci shifted to calm and graceful in a snap.
In a confrontation scene with screen veteran Teresa Loyzaga as Gabriela following leakage of the latter’s video scandal, the gorgeous Arci was fierce and empowered despite the strands of frustrations and pain. She was so effective that everyone will be rooting for her.
Her character Aryann in Magpahanggang Wakas is likewise an emotionally demanding role. It was also her first time engaging in violent rumble scenes with a kontrabida, played by Gelli de Belen as Jenna. Viewers will never forget that three-part jaw-breaking slaps served while calling her nemesis “ambisyosa,” ilusyonada,” and “desperada,” to spice up each strike.
Arci was on fire in that scene where she shoved her Gelli’s face in a cake topped with live worms. It was quite icky but totally satisfying for the viewers rooting for Aryann. Full-blown dramatic prowess is served when Arci slammed Jenna and Tristan (John Estrada) with lengthy, intensely delivered lines at her son Angelo’s wake.
Let Arci’s talent and sparkle captivate you even more in Walang Hanggang Paalam where she plays ‘astig’ investigative agent Sam. It airs Monday-Friday on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z.
