Throughout her four decades in the local entertainment scene, Janice de Belen is undeniably one of the most sought-after actresses and television personalities, even at present.
But apart from her unparalleled acting and hosting prowess -- which we can see in her current stints as Dra. Ramona Joaquin in the primetime drama La Vida Lena, as guest co-host in the morning show Magandang Buhay, and as Reina ng Tahanan hurado in the noontime program It’s Showtime -- her fans and colleagues couldn’t help but gush over her youthful glow despite already being in her 50s and a hands-on single mom to her five grown-up children.
And it’s really evident in the throwback photos of her that can be found all over the internet and on Instagram as she shared some in her account that never failed to accumulate thousands of likes from her followers who truly admire seeing how adorable she was as a kid and a teenager.
Just in case you haven’t seen a single picture of her during her younger years and you’re curious how she looked then, we collated some of her throwback shots in this gallery!
Janice began her showbiz career as a child star, with her portrayal of the titular character in the top-rating and phenomenally successful soap opera Flordeluna, which ran from 1979 to 1984, as her breakthrough.
Starring in a slew of films and TV dramas, she was hailed as the “80s Teen Drama Princess” alongside the late Julia Vega, who became her co-star in a number of movies. Besides, her fascinating beauty graced the covers of various magazines as well.
She also got paired with different actors, such as Gabby Concepcion and Aga Muhlach, to whom she both had relationships with in real life.
