  1. Miss Nova Villa has always been a great dramatic actress. Some people seems to forget that Miss Villa has started in drama/action films in the 60’s when she was a teen-ager. Most of her movies at the time were with Mr. Fernando Poe Jr. as her leading man. Being a great comedianne, as most viewers knew her now, is only a big part of Miss Villa’s versatility. Her versatilities are one of the main reason Miss Nova Villa is being considered as one of The Philippine Cinema’s finest actresses. A true cinematic Legend.
