Yes, we've got our slew of favorite celebs and love teams in 2016, but for 2017 we're all for a new breed of talent. Here, we have 10 celebs we know are on their way to superstardom. 

1. Gil Cuerva


The model-turned-actor will make his debut on primetime TV as Jennylyn Mercado's leading man in the much-hyped Korean drama remake My Love From The Star.

With or without the back-to-back Miss Universe crown for the Philippines, Maxine has proven she's got what it takes to make a lasting mark in the industry.
