Filipina Child Stars Turned Beautiful and Talented Teen Stars
10. Sandy Talag
This beautiful young lady started her showbiz career as one of the contestant of StarStruck Kids. Sandy is among the celebrities in the Philippines that mirror the real beauty of a Filipina. At a young age, she had appeared on various television programs and movies. Furthermore, she won her first international awards for the movie Lilet Never Happened (2013) wherein she played a young prostitute. Her acting in the movie is very convincing and helps her popularity. In the present, she last appeared in the teleserye Carmela and Niño.
9. Miles Ocampo
Who would have thought that this beautiful teen star is from Goin Bulilit and Mga Anghel Na Walang Langit? Miles is known for having a pretty-angelic-happy face. Unlike other celebrities that some fans considered as “masungit” because of their looks, Miles is like a person who is always smiling. I have watched her teleseryes and her current sitcom “Luv U” and yes, she is really gorgeous now as a teen star.
As a child actress, she is known for playing supporting roles to Kim Chiu, Sharon Cuneta, Sarah Geronimo and Lorna Tolentino. Currently, she is still active in showbiz and is doing print ad commercials. She is also a close friend of fellow celebrities Julia Montes and Kathryn Bernardo.
8. Joyce Ching
This chinita beauty was a member of the kiddie show Bubble Gang Junior (2005). During her early career in showbiz, she appeared on different teleseryes and commercial ads. Her “masungit” looks makes her popular as she plays different villain characters in First Time and Stairway To Heaven. Among all the child stars in her generation, I consider her as the best antagonist. She had also played protagonist roles but in my opinion it doesn’t fit her looks.
I don’t hate her anyway but I love her on how she portrays every role given to her especially evil roles. She will really get your attention by just looking at her face without even saying a single word. If only people will notice how great Joyce is as an actress, then I guess she will have more and more teleseryes and movies.
7. Mika dela Cruz
This gorgeous teen star is actually a sister of Angelika dela Cruz. By looking at her looks, I conclude that beauty really runs on their blood. She is one of the most popular child stars in the country who have won awards for her movies. She is truly beautiful and talented even if you watch her previous teleseryes and movies. She has this fierce looks that makes her more beautiful.
As a teen star, I guess playing the villian role in teleseryes will fit her. Her sister is also known for playing a very convincing evil role in teleseryes and movies. I have watch Mika’s character in Mirabella and yes just like her “Ate” she will become one of the most promising and convincing “kontrabida’s” in her generation. I guess this will be a battle between Joyce and Mika. Oh well, both of them are unique in playing their roles and even in beauty.
6. Sharlene San Pedro
No words can describe this teen star! I am not bias but she is actually my idol and I am following her career in the industry. She rose to fame after she won the first place in SCQ Kids along with Nash Aguas who is the ultimate winner. As a child star, Shar appeared on different teleseryes playing lead and supporting roles. Even before, she already has the charisma that captures the heart of her fans. She is very convincing on portraying roles that are given to her.
She is known for her tomboyish role in the Sunday sitcom “Luv U”. If you think that she only appears on pa-cute roles, then you are wrong because at the age of 13, she had played a character of a teenage mother in MMK and she was nominated in the 17th Asian Television Awards as Best Actress in the lead-drama role. Honestly, she is not only pretty but also a talented actress. Who knows? Shar will become one of the brightest stars in the entertainment industry. But before that, let’s support her journey and pray that she will have a teleserye with Nash Aguas as her onscreen partner.
5. Julia Barretto
She is one of the most successful child stars in the country. This beautiful teen star is a daughter of Marjorie Barreto and Dennis Padilla. She is actually perfect. During her childhood days, I’ve been saying this to myself that if this child will continue her career in the entertainment industry then she is one of the most beautiful stars. She has the looks and charm that will capture your attentions. Although, she comes from the Barreto clan’s but I cannot deny the fact that beauty also runs in their blood.
In addition to beauty, she is also known for having an award-winning “Titas” in showbiz. Hopefully, she will make her own name as Julia and not just a member of the Barreto’s. Well, she also has a talent in acting and she just need to improve it. I have watch her in Mirabella and her acting is okay. Let’s just wait for more projects and support her.
4. Bea Binene
This gorgeous lady also started her career upon joining StarStruck Kids. Although she only placed runner up on the said reality show, she was blessed as opportunities are coming to her. As a child actress, she had played in different dramas and movies. She also played a villian role in a drama. She became more popular on television when she was cast in First Time playing Nathalie Dimaculangan. And that was the first time I’ve seen Bea playing teen roles. What I like her is that she is very cute!
She also played her first major role in Alice Bungisngis and her Wonder Walis together with her real-time partner Jake Vargas. At present, she plays light roles in both TV and movies. Aside from acting, she is also a regular host of Good News Kasama Si Vicky Morales. Well, in the future, she can be one of the most popular broadcasters in the country.
3. Jane Oineza
This beautiful lady is also a mainstay of Goin Bulilit and is much known for playing one of the lead roles in Kung Fu Kids. Jane first appeared in television commercials before landing her first role in TV and that was in Sa Dulo Ng Walang Hanggan at the age of four. She was cast in different shows and movies but she was not as popular as her co-Goin Bulilit stars.
Until she joined Pinoy Big Brother, her popularity rises locally and internationally. She is known for being a family-centered person and works hard to support her family. It is the reason why fans love her more and supports her journey in showbiz. What people didn’t know is that she was nominated in World’s Best Actress certificate and International Emmy nomination for “Manika” (2012). This only means that even before, she already has a great talent in acting.
2. Julia Montes
This teen star is one of the most successful and bankable in her generation. Julia started her showbiz career playing supporting roles in TV and movies. Her beauty and attitude is actually her best asset in becoming successful. She rose to fame when she was cast in Mara Clara together with her fellow-Goin Bulilit Star Kathryn Bernardo. She was actually playing the villain role at that time which made her more popular in the country although she doesn’t fit in the antagonist role because I like her more on playing the lead role.
She became a household name when she was cast in the teleserye Walang Hanggan with Coco Martin. The age-gap between them is just a number as fans were all supporting them. The success of the said teleserye earned her the title of Phenomenal Primetime Princess and eventually named her as the Princess of Philippine Television. She really makes a good pair with Coco. How I wish that they will make another teleserye.
1. Kathryn Bernardo
The most successful and popular teen star in this generation is no other than Kathryn Bernardo. Just like others, she also started from scratch. By the way, I really like her character in Super Inggo as Maya. I really hope that she will appear again in a teleserye with Makisig Morales. She played the young Jenny in Endless Love which gained her fame because of her acting. After playing minor roles, she was chosen to play the lead role of Mara Clara. This time Kathryn’s talent was showcase in the said teleserye and some fans even said that she will become the next Judy Ann Santos in showbiz.
She became more popular when she was paired with Daniel Padilla. And she was dubbed as the reigning “Teen Queen” of the Philippines due to her numerous success and prominent beauty. She is a real beauty of a Filipina with a great talent in acting.
