In 2006, Salvador made her film debut as one of the supporting characters in the horror movie Sukob[7]
wherein she portrayed the role of a clairvoyant young girl. This earned her several accolades including

the "Regalo" episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya.[9] For the latter, Salvador earned a nomination for Best
Single Performance by an Actress at the Star Awards for Television[10] but lost to co-star Vilma Santos,
who played as her mother in the said episode.[11]

Salvador reunited with John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo in the 2007 box-office movie One More

"luminous".[13] The role gained her a Star Award for Movies nomination for Movie Supporting Actress
of the Year. During this year, she was also cast as one of the three leads in the TV series Pangarap na

Salvador, in 2011, was cast as one of the main characters in the critically acclaimed family-military
drama series Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin.[19] That same year, she also co-produced the independent film
Thelma,[20] with which she also starred in the title role. Her performance in the film was praised by
Philippine Entertainment Portal's Bong Godinez, stating in his review that Salvador gives an "impressive
performance" and that she "brandished her depth as an actress without going overboard".[21] He also
added that she "[dishes] out the emotions in an understated manner". However, Tessa Guazon of the
Young Critics Circle - Film Desk criticized Salvador's performance by saying that there are failures in
"conflict and depth".[22] Furthermore, she mentioned that Salvador was out of track in the movie and
that she "missed [the] subtle leap". Despite mixed reviews on the film, Salvador went on and bagged the
Gawad Urian Award for Best Actress as well as the Film Academy of the Philippines Award for Best

In 2012, Salvador starred in the afternoon drama series Lumayo Ka Man Sa Akin as Janine Castillo, and
