The show business industry has seen various child stars come and go after being in the spotlight for quite some time. These children start off at a very young age to pursue their dreams of becoming an actor or actress.
Children are very precious human beings who would always speak their minds and who would always do their best to get what they want. They grab opportunities presented in front of them because of their matching bravery and curiosity with what is happening around them.
Just like any other child, child actors and actresses go out in the open world and have decided to try out show business.
We have seen a lot of young celebrities who peaked their show business careers at a very young age, but decided to leave the industry at some point while they were growing up. One of them is Tom Taus, who was known for playing the lead role in Cedie: Ang Munting Prinsipe, who is now a known disc jockey or DJ.

While some child stars choose to leave the limelight, some of them choose to stay and we see them grow up before our eyes. One of them is Angelica Panganiban, who is now an amazing actress who has done many iconic roles and has done different TV shows and movies as well.
Another successful former child star is Kathryn Bernardo. Kathryn became known for her role as Mara in the remake of the classic teleserye, Mara Clara. She starred alongside Julia Montes, another former child star.
There are also child stars who come from reality talent shows who are now successful actors and actresses.
