As one of the main characters of a fantaserye in ABS CBN, Anne played the role of a mermaid named Dyesebel in 2014.

This is where she had an encounter with a box jellyfish which nearly killed her.

The 33-year-old star recalled the headline-making incident in her Instagram stories Wednesday, saying, "About this time four years ago, I almost lost my life to a box jellyfish."

The incident happened in the taping venue in Batangas.

She was in so much pain from the sting while being rushed to different hospitals to get proper treatment.

Anne was confined in a private hospital in Taguig.

According to a research from the United States National Science Foundation, the box jellyfish which is considered one of the world's most poisonous creatures kills 20 to 40 people in the Philippines every year.

"The venom of the box jellyfish is so overpoweringly painful that victims often go in shock and drown or die of heart failure before reaching shore," a 2010 report from The Telegraph, about a British victim, reads.

Anne shared her photos showing her rashes from the sting.

She wrote in the captions of the pictures, "I am very thankful that I got stung by only half a t3ntacle. So, even if I experienced all the symptoms -- vomiting in a span of one minute, extreme pain, and delirium -- the venom was not enough to put me into cardiac arrest and turn into [a] fatal sting."

She then reminded the beach goers to be careful in swimming.

"This summer, be careful in our waters. Because, yes, we do have one of the world's deadliest jellyfish in Philippine seas -- the box jellyfish.

"The ocean is their home. We are merely visitors. So it is our responsibility to be careful and ask locals if we should be on the lookout for jellyfish in their waters when going for a swim."

Curtis is half-Filipina half-Australian with an Ilocano descent.

Curtis was born in Yarrawonga, Victoria, Australia, the daughter of Carmencita Ojales, a Filipina from Bolinao, Pangasinan and James Ernest Curtis-Smith, an Australian lawyer.

Her father is a World War II veteran and married Carmencita Ojales in 1982.

Her younger sister, Jasmine, is also an actress. On their father's side, they had a half-sister named Clare who died in 2007 due to a cardiovascular disease at four months old.
