Even though she’s a scioness of two of the most influential and biggest clans in the local entertainment scene, Janine Gutierrez has indeed succeeded in stepping out of the shadows of her famous family members and in creating her own mark in the industry.
Despite being among the brightest stars of her previous network, this did not stop her from switching to her new home and starting the new chapter of her life as an actress last January.
And beginning September 13, she’s about to have her Kapamilya teleserye debut in the romance-comedy drama Marry Me, Marry You, wherein she’s about to charm us as hardworking and family-oriented Camille.
But before that, let’s revisit first her appearances in ABS-CBN programs in this episode of Kapamilya Spotlight!
Her first-ever guesting as a certified Kapamilya was in ASAP Natin ‘To, wherein she was greeted by her beloved family and the directors of the movies he starred in, as well as welcomed by veteran mainstays Ogie Alcasid, Martin Nievera, and Gary Valenciano with a heartfelt serenade.
“I’ve always been excited to know what it’s like to be a Kapamilya and I’m so thankful to ABS-CBN for this opportunity. Sa wakas, mae-experience ko na ang pagiging isang Kapamilya,” she enthused in her VTR shown prior to her live stint. “It’s a new year, a new house, new challenges, and new opportunities. And I’m so grateful for this opportunity at sa pag-welcome n’yo sa akin bilang isang Kapamilya.”
When asked for her message to the Kapamilyas all over the world, Janine stated, “Sobrang excited ako na makatrabaho lahat ng Kapamilya -- all the Kapamilya actors, directors, staff. I’m so happy to be here. At siyempre, lalong-lalo na na makilala ko nang husto ang lahat ng Kapamilya sa buong Pilipinas at sa buong mundo. I can’t wait to spend the rest of the year with you, guys, and onwards and onwards. So, hello po ulit, Kapamilya!”
In her succeeding appearances in the weekly variety program, the 31-year-old actress was given the chance to exhibit her talents in singing and hosting alongside its mainstays.
She also guested in It’s Showtime as the guest contestant for its “Hide and Sing” segment. Initially nervous, she was able to successfully guess who among the singers in front of her is the celebrity “TagoKanta” -- who turned out to be Moy Ortiz of TheCompany -- and won in the end.
The Kapamilya newcomer then had the opportunity to show-off her world-class acting prowess in the “Quarantine Pass” episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya, wherein she was paired with sought-after Kapamilya leading man JM de Guzman.
Are you excited as us to see Janine star in her first-ever teleserye as a certified Kapamilya? Show your all-out support and warm welcome for her by watching Marry Me, Marry You starting this coming September 13, weeknights on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, A2Z Channel 11, and TV5.
