Selina Matias (Mula Sa Puso)
Portrayed by: Princess Punzalan (1997), Eula Valdes (2011)
Dubbed as the Philippines's version of Tormentor because of her nine lives, Selina Matias has always been known as the most evil kontrabida who made the life of the protagonist Via (Claudine Barretto/Lauren Young) miserable.
Selina has a daughter to her husband Ysmael (Efren Reyes, Jr./DJ Durano) named Nicole (Anna Larrucea/Sue Ramirez).
WHY WE HATE HER: Calling Selina evil is actually an understatement. In both installments. She plotted several ways to kill Via and get the riches of the Pereiras. The most popular one was when she planted a bomb inside a bus to kill Via.
WHY WE LOVE HER: Just like any mother, Selina would do everything for her child. In the 1997 version, Selina was so devastated when she saw the lifeless body of Nicole that she opened up her casket to hug her daughter for the last time. In the 2011 version, Selina got her biggest karma when Nicole was inside the bus that she blew up. When Selina learned about this, she immediately rushed inside the burning bus and sacrificed her life just to be with her daughter.
