Yen Santos is being touted as the next leading lady to watch out for as she makes waves on prime time in the sultry soap Magpahanggang Wakas together with Jericho Rosales and Arci Muñoz.

Fans have raved about her much-improved register on the camera since coming out of the Pinoy Big Brother House in 2010.

In late 2015, Santos was also part of the soap All of Me together with JM de Guzman and Albert Martinez.
