GMA-7 actress-TV host Pauleen Luna looked back on her days with ABS-CBN.
Yesterday, June 24, Pauleen posted on Instagram a photo taken in 2002 together with fellow ABS-CBN Talent Center artists Glaiza de Castro, Carla Humphries, Sarita Perez de Tagle, and Pia Wurtzbach.
ABS-CBN Talent Center is the former name of Star Magic, the Kapamilya network's talent arm.
Pauleen wrote in the caption, "YOUTH. Taken with a film camera. 2002. ABS Canteen."
Glaiza was the girl standing at the back while seated on the couch were (L-R) Pia, Sarita, Carla, and Pauleen.
Glaiza, who was tagged in the photo, reacted to the post and said, "Grabe!"
Sarita, who is now inactive in show business, commented, "@pauleenlunasotto where did you get this! Look at us! We were oh so young! Hahahaha reminds me of abs days and @glaizaredux the haunted cupcake in the 3rd floor wahahaha"
Former Star Magic talent Karel Marquez and ABS-CBN actresses Denise Laurel and Vina Morales also shared their reactions in the comments section.
As of now, Pauleen, Glaiza, Carla, Sarita, and Pia are no longer talents of Star Magic.
Pauleen transferred to GMA-7 in 2005, while Glaiza followed in 2006.
Pia, despite remaining with ABS-CBN after her Miss Universe win, is now managed by Aces & Queens.
Carla, on the other hand, became a freelance actress active in indie films and Kapamilya TV shows.
