Tuning into Goin' Bulilit every Sunday night was practically a tradition for many Pinoy households. The comedy-skit show was best known for its chuckle-worthy segments and its lovable set of cast members. After hitting a certain age and "graduating" from the show, a number of these child stars would go on to solidify their status as established actresses. Ahead, we round up 8 of them.
LOOK: 8 Goin' Bulilit Cast Members and Where They Are Now
1. Kathryn Bernardo
Before she earned the crown of Teen Queen, Kathryn Bernardo got her start as a cast member on the show in 2006. Her success quickly snowballed, with roles in Got to Believe, She's Dating the Gangster, and Hello, Love, Goodbye being some of her most memorable work. Presently, we can catch Kath in action in her newest teleserye, 2 Good 2 Be True, opposite her reel-to-real leading man, Daniel Padilla.

2. Belle Mariano
The endearing charm we adore Belle Mariano for stems from her days in Goin' Bulilit. Aside from taking part in the show, the 19-year-old started out doing gigs as the younger version of female leads. Today, she's most known as the headstrong Max in hit teen series He's Into Her.

3. Andrea Brillantes
Andrea Brillantes, fondly known as Blythe, has been a fixture on our screens since she was nine years old. She briefly appeared on Goin' Bulilit before fully becoming the superstar she is today. Her extensive body of work includes iconic characters in Annaliza, Kadenang Ginto, and soon, in iQiyi's Lyric and Beat.

4. Trina "Hopia" Legaspi
It was only last year when Trina Legaspi got married to businessman Ryan Legaspi, and her wedding looks were nothing short of breathtaking. Trina is best known by the public as "Hopia" on the kids' comedy show, and to say she's only matured inside and out is an understatement.

6. Julia Montes
We most probably know Julia Montes as the Clara to Kathryn Bernardo's Mara. The two are known to have grown close as batchmates on Goin Bulilit', and their friendship is still as strong as ever! After taking a break from show biz, Julia has returned to the small screen as Coco Martin's paramour in the ABS-CBN action-drama Ang Probinsyano.
