Mara Clara is probably the most popular teleserye of the past 20 years. This can be attributed to the main cast which included drama princess Judy Ann Santos and Gladys Reyes who easily became the most hated villain at the time. Aired from 1992 to 1997, Mara Clara was the longest teleserye in Philippine television. It was so popular that it was turned into a movie in 1996 under Star Cinema. The series is about two girls who, by a twist of fate, each lead the life that should have been the other’s, and only a diary can put an end to the mess. The conflict between the two protagonists, Mara del Valle (Judy Ann Santos) and Clara Davis (Gladys Reyes) influenced the acting styles for heroines and villains for years to come.
