“Tubig at Langis” is all over social media for the past few weeks. Videos of the controversial scenes are being shared, as well as memes and reenactments of certain scenes. Irene, Natoy and Clara have become trending topics on Twitter several times making Cristine Reyes, Zanjoe Marudo and Isabelle Daza the newest afternoon teleserye royalties. Aside from the three lead characters, Dionne Monsanto, who plays Lucy, Natoy’s younger sister, also got the attention of the televiewers.
Dionne first appeared on national television through “Pinoy Big Brother”. She was a housemate of the second regular season of the reality show, alongside Bodie Cruz, Wendy Valdez, Bruce Quebral and Saicy Aguila. She was evicted on Day 77 and in that season, Bea Saw became the Big Winner.
Even before her entry to the PBB house, she was already a local celebrity in the Visayas and has appeared in “For Life”, a Cebuano drama series of ABS-CBN’s Regional Network Group.
After PBB, she appeared in several Kapamilya shows such as “Super Inggo 1.5” (2007), “Lobo” (2008), “Ang Lalaking Nagmahal Sa Akin” (2009), “Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin” (2011), “Maria la del Barrio” (2012), “Be Careful With My Heart” (2012), “Paraiso” (2013) and “The Legal Wife” (2014).
She also did several movies like “When Love Begins” (2008), “The Healing” (2012), “Suddenly It’s Magic” (2012), Sinag Maynila’s “Swap” (2015), “Always Be My Maybe” (2016) and CineFilipino’s “Ned Project” (2016).
She has been in the industry for almost ten years and has portrayed several roles in movies and TV shows, but her role as Lucy in “Tubig at Langis” is her biggest break to date. She has proven that she can not only receive the strong slaps of Irene well, but she can also be an effective kontrabida that people will love to hate and hate to love.
This is only the beginning for this talented woman, there’s so much more to come for the newest kontrabida of this generation.
Watch out for more exciting and slap-packed scenes of Dionne as Lucy in “Tubig at Langis,” Mondays to Fridays after “Doble Kara” in ABS-CBN Kapamilya Gold.
