Sharon Cuneta

Sharon Gamboa Cuneta-Pangilinan, better known as Sharon Cuneta, is a multi-awarded Filipino singer, actress and TV host dubbed The Megastar of Philippine Entertainment, and fondly called "Mega" or "Shawie" by fans and people from the entertainment industry. Her success in the movies (53 starring roles), television (10 shows) and recording (40 albums) make her one of The Most Successful Filipina Actress. Her popularity has translated well into the field of advertising, where she is the highest paid and most effective Filipino celebrity endorser.[2][6] Cuneta's long list of endoresements run the gamut from fastfood chain to bank, from make-up line to electronics, from ice cream to tele-communication company. On November 22, 2011, following months of speculations, Sharon's big move to TV5 was made official by signing a staggering 1 billion contract with the Kapatid Network – the highest ever paid to a Filipino artist. She parted ways with ABS-CBN, her home network of 24 years, on a cordial note. Her daily afternoon talk show Sharon: Kasama Mo, Kapatid premiered on May 14, 2012 and has been hailed as an engaging program that aims to entertain and to inspire. The show provides the perfect platform for Sharon to be in touch with her audience, reaffirming her stature as a well-loved icon who is now more accessible to fans and viewers alike. In 2013, Cuneta returned to television with her very first comedy series in her 35 year career as an entertainer entitled, Madam Chairman, which premiered in October 2013 on TV5.
