All Eyes On Janine Gutierrez With Her Breakout Role In “Dirty Linen”
Growing up, Janine had the privilege to experience entertainment, at least, through the lens of her actor parents Lotlot de Leon and Ramon Christopher. Acting runs deep in the family as industry veterans Nora Aunor, Pilita Corrales, and Eddie Gutierrez happened to be her grandparents, too.
“I’ve always wanted to carve out my own career and I’m happy kasi when I go out now, people know that my name on Dirty Linen is Mila or Alexa,” Janine started, an air of self-assurance encompassing her. “Parang ’yun talaga ’yung kinaka-happy ko na they’re starting to latch onto my work instead of who my parents are.” But bantering in turn to soften the tension, she quipped, “Sorry, mom!”
Her talent shone bright enough to be recognized as Best Actress in 2019 QCinema International Film Festival, 2020 FAMAS Awards, and 2020 Gawad Urian Awards all for Babae at Baril, and New York Asian Film Festival’s Rising Star Asia Award winner in2021 for Dito at Doon.
