Before being a mainstay in ABS-CBN TV shows and Star Cinema movies, did you know that Liza Soberano was first seen in GMA-7 and Eat Bulaga?



Everyone has to start somewhere and for Liza Soberano, her humble beginnings kicked off by being part of a live audience.

A Facebook fanpage called Filipino Vines uploaded old footage of GMA-7's noontime variety show Eat Bulaga!

A very young Liza could be seen holding a sachet of a popular shampoo brand.

This happened during the popular segment "Juan For All, All For Juan" which was hosted back then by Paolo Ballesteros and Jose Manalo.

When the camera zoomed out, it can be seen that Liza was part of a crowd that joined Eat Bulaga's shampoo giveaway contest.

Liza was even pushed around by other contestants who were trying get giveaways.


This appearance could have jumpstarted Liza's showbiz career.

Using her real name Hope Soberano, the aspiring actress signed up with GMA Network in 2010. However, she was only a Kapuso talent for a week.

There were projects, including a movie appearance, that were already lined-up for the then-newbie actress.

However, she admitted to ABSCBNnews.com in 2014, "After ko mag-sign sa GMA, tumawag ang Star Magic."

She then asked to be released from her contract.

Liza reasoned out, "Noong pumunta ako doon [GMA], alam mo yung... I didn't feel at home," she explained. "Siyempre gusto ko kung magtatrabaho ako, masaya ako.

"Hindi ko lang na-feel. Kasi dati pa lang, ABS na po ang pinapanood ko, so gusto ko talaga ABS."

In 2011, she made her first TV appearance on the Kapamilya Network via an episode of Wansapantaym. She was also included in the afternoon series Kung Ako'y Iiwan Mo (2012) as Jake Cuenca's younger sister.

In 2013, she changed her screen name to Liza Soberano and was included in the movie Must Be… Love as the third wheel to Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.

She was also included in the latest batch of Star Magic teens, which included Julia Barretto, Janella Salvador, Jerome Ponce, to name a few.

Liza was then cast as the kontrabida to Julia in her launching show Mira Bella. However, the series got delayed, and she was included in the second chapter in the KathNiel series Got To Believe, again as the third wheel.

In 2014, Liza got her big break when she was paired with Enrique Gil in the breakthrough series Forevermore.

Their team-up would later on spawn another teleserye, Dolce Amore in 2016 and three movies: Just The Way You Are (2015), Everyday I Love You (2015), and My Ex and Whys (2017).
