Vergel's film credits include Diwani opposite César Ramirez, MN with Carmen Rosales as her arch-enemy, Balisong with Ramon Revilla and Madam X with Gloria Romero as her daughter. She participated in the unfinished movie Bibingka'y masarap under Sampaguita Pictures in the late 40s. Her performance as Orang in Basahang Ginto won Vergel the first FAMAS Award for Best Actress in 1952.

In 1977, she starred as the widowed and retired principal and teacher coping up with the demands of aging in Lotus Productions' "Inay" directed by Lino Brocka. The film was an entry in the Metro-Manila Film festival and earned her an acting nomination for lead actress.

In 1987, she was seen in "Saan Nagtatago ang Pag-ibig?" and essayed the role of Señora Pacing as Ricky Davao's aristocratic and strict grandmother.

Personal life

She married Sampaguita Pictures' leading man César Ramirez. They had two children: Ace Vergel (known as "The Original Bad Boy of Philippine Movies"), and Beverly Vergel, actress, acting teacher and currently director of the ABS-CBN Center for Communication Arts, Inc. Vergel and Ramirez separated; Vergel married another man and had another child, Mike. During the late 80s until the early 90s, Mommy Alice as she was called was Barangay Captain in Sto. Domingo, Quezon City.


Vergel died of natural causes in 1992.


She was posthimously inducted to the Eastwood City Walk Of Fame Philippines in December 2006.
