Janine Gutierrez and 17 Kapuso-turned-Kapamilya stars

MANILA — Acclaimed actress Janine Gutierrez on Friday became the latest in a long list of Kapuso-turned-Kapamilya stars, who have each reached greater career heights since transferring to ABS-CBN.

Gutierrez’s network switch is notable, as it comes amid ABS-CBN’s migration to digital after it was denied a fresh broadcast franchise by Duterte allies in Congress.

Gutierrez, like many GMA-7 artists who moved to ABS-CBN, had been enjoying prime status with lead or main roles in their former network, but ultimately opted for “growth” on the other side of the fence, as most of them have reasoned over the years.

In photos, here are 17 other former Kapuso celebrities who are currently or recently seen in the Kapamilya network, including when they transferred, and how long they’ve stayed:
