Nadine Lustre's career didn't happen overnight. Like all celebrities, the former child host and performer worked hard to get to where she is at the moment. Check out our cover girl's beginnings in this career timeline we put together just for you.
At a young age, Nadine started out as a host on the RPN kiddie show, Storyland. Too bad we weren't able to find old videos or photos of her stint on this show, but we're pretty sure she's still the lovely girl we know now—only a little younger.
A few years later, the young TV host became the Philippine reporter for Disney Channel On Assignment, which showcased the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland that year.
Four years later, Nadine became part of the singing group Pop Girls (under the management of Viva Entertainment) and became a mainstay performer on GMA's Sunday variety show, SOP, until 2010. She also began acting and appeared in Vice Ganda's movie, Petrang Kabayo, where she played a minor role as the leading star's assistant.
There were more projects for Nadine two years later. After her stint as a performer on Party Pilipinas, Viva moved her to TV5 where she appeared on several shows like P.S. I Love You (where she was paired with AJ Muhlach), Hey, It's Saberdey, and Bagets: Just Got Lucky. She also had a minor role in the movie Who's That Girl? which starred Anne Curtis and Luis Manzano.
Of course Nadine's performing skills is something she'll never, ever let go. In 2012, she became one of the performers for the Sunday teen variety show, Sunday Funday, which also aired on TV5.
The following year, more projects came in for the rising actress. Nadine appeared on Wapak - Winner Ang Pakwela at Kulitan and the movies, The Fighting Chefs and When the Love is Gone.
Last year proved to be a big one for Nadine. She starred in two films with onscreen partner James Reid: Diary ng Panget and Talk Back and You're Dead. After proving that they're one of this generation's biggest onscreen pairings, the two then starred on Wansapanataym's My App Boyfie.
This year, our cover girl is set to return to the big screen with James as she's already working on the sequels of her movies: Diary ng Panget 2 and Never Talk Back to a Gangster. This is just two of her biggest projects announced so far, and we better brace ourselves for more because Nadine is one of the stars we should watch for this year.
