Denise Maria Sanz Laurel (born September 30, 1987) is a Filipina actress and singer. She is best known for playing roles in various ABS-CBN dramas, such as Precious Hearts Romances series' Midnight Phantom[1] and Kristine,[2] Dahil Sa Pag-ibig,[3] and Annaliza. Laurel is currently a member of Star Magic.


She is the granddaughter of former Vice President, the late Salvador Laurel and her grandmother Celia Diaz, and the great-granddaughter of former Philippine President, the late Jose P. Laurel. She is the youngest daughter of David Laurel.

She is currently engaged to PBA star Sol Mercado.[4]


Laurel was discovered by Star Magic's big boss Mr. M (Johnny Manahan) in a play of Repertory Philippines. Luckily, she was given a break to be part of Ang TV 2, then she played as Ina Raymundo's daughter in Pangako Sa ‘Yo.

She then made a name in Singapore when she was fortunate to be part of MTV Asia's Rouge, which was shown all over Asia. Among the many who auditioned, she stood out and got the role of a smart lead vocalist named Pat. At the age of 16, her experience in working with other nationalities has taught her things that helped her improve her craft. After a season in Rouge, Denise decided to concentrate on her local showbiz career.[5]

In her return to the Philippines, she was part of the teen-oriented show Click, TAPE Inc.'s Walang Hanggang and Leya, and two telefantasyas Mulawin and Encantadia.

She went back to ABS-CBN. Laurel was starred on Abt Ur Luv, and in the fifth season of Komiks, where she plays an Engkantao. In 2008, ABS-CBN started the Precious Hearts Romances Presents series in which Laurel is prominently featured. Thus far, she has starred in four of the series' adaptation: Bud Brothers, You're Mine, Only Mine, Midnight Phantom, and Kristine. She started getting recognition when she did the series, most notably in Midnight Phantom and Kristine opposite her good friend Rafael Rosell. Her team-up with Rosell has been a hit with the viewers, thus they were teamed up again in Dahil Sa Pag-ibig. After Dahil Sa Pag-ibig, Laurel starred on her fifth PHR series entitled Pintada, where she played a teacher with a mysterious past.

In 2013, Laurel played an antagonist role in the last PHR series Paraiso, and later became part of the pre-primetime family drama series Annaliza that was aired for almost a year. She is set to star in the primetime melodrama series Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita in 2014. The said series will replace Angel Eyes in the last quarter of the year.
