What ever happened to Princess Punzalan?
This kontrabida has a new role.
(SPOT.ph) Folks who recall the '90s would probably remember Princess Punzalan as the evil Selina who tormented poor Via in the telenovela and later feature film, Mula Sa Puso. She's come a long way since the time her character bombed a bus and laughed maniacally about it.

In an interview with PEP.ph, Princess revealed that since disappearing from the limelight, she has found fulfillment working as a registered nurse in the United States. She described her newfound career as "masayang mahirap" and explained, "Masarap 'yong alam mo na meron ka pang puwedeng ibang gawin."
She admitted, however, that she missed showbiz, saying, "...Noong maliit pa ako, feeling ko, siguro magiging parang Mary Walter ako na hanggang sa pumuti na 'yong buhok ko ay mag-aartista pa rin." She also clarified that she hasn't entirely quit the business and that she would guest-star on shows every time she visited the country.
It's been a year since Princess started practicing in the States, but she previously returned to the Philippines in 2013 as a volunteer nurse to help Yolanda survivors.
