Ever since she officially became a Kapamilya in 2015, Arci Muñoz has been unstoppable when it comes to showcasing her talents on television for she’s been truly blessed with a string of acting projects in the past five years. And this year, amid the pandemic, she’s about to astound us anew via her latest role as the gutsy Sam in the upcoming teleserye Walang Hanggang Paalam.
But before we get to meet the newest character she’s going to portray, let’s take a look back first on her previous remarkable appearances in Kapamilya programs through this feature.
Fresh from her transfer, Arci immediately showed avid Kapamilya viewers her acting chops when she was tapped to star in the “Spaghetti” episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya alongside Jake Cuenca and Andi Eigenmann. It was succeeded by her stint in the “Pagmamahalang Hinadlangan” episode of Ipaglaban Mo.
On that same year, she was given the plum role of Norma Elizondo, the love interest of Jake Cuenca’s character Juan Samonte in the Filipino incarnation of the Colombian telenovela Pasion De Amor which was also broadcast on ABS-CBN in the early 2000s.
In 2016, she was paired with Jericho Rosales in the primetime romance drama Magpahanggang Wakas, the TV remake of the 1980 film of the same title, wherein she astonished us with her dramatic flair as Aryann Castillo – a woman torn between her past and present love.
The 31-year-old actress took a break from acting for a while and joined the celebrity reality competition I Can Do That – an adaptation of the Israeli show bearing the same name – through which she had the opportunity to develop and showcase various entertainment acts alongside seven other “iCANdidates” in 2017.
She may not have won in the contest, but she’s able to score afterwards a role in the daytime series Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin as Alex Flores, the woman who tried to capture the heart of Gerald Anderson’s character Gabriel. A year after, she then became the leading lady of Ultimate Heartthrob Piolo Pascual in the primetime teleserye Since I Found You, playing the hardworking and family-oriented Dani Cobarrubias.
In 2019, she top-billed the iWant Originals series ”Jhon En Martian” opposite Pepe Herrera, amusing us with her portrayal of the extraterrestrial being named Princess 223 (a.k.a. Martina). It was then succeeded with her appearance in the “Taiwan” episode of Ipaglaban Mo as Baby, a wife who underwent a lot of sufferings in the arms of her abusive and womanizer husband Jess, played by Vin Abrenica.
Arci then had the chance to work with her longtime best friend JM de Guzman in the primetime drama Pamilya Ko, touching our hearts as Betty Palisoc, the outgoing and dependable best friend of his character Chico who was secretly in love with him. Many viewers were actually rooting for them, but that didn’t nor won’t happen anymore as her well-loved character was unfortunately killed.
Amid community quarantine, we’re still able to see her act again and get reunited with her “Always Be My Maybe” and “Can We Still Be Friends” leading man Gerald Anderson in the short film “Hook-Up”, which was part of the two-bill RCD Narratives digital special Love Unlock that also featured Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia.
