Richard Kristian Gutierrez, popularly known as Richard Gutierrez, is a Filipino actor and model. He is one of the sons of actor Eddie Gutierrez.


Gutierrez is the son of actor Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama, and the brother of Ruffa Gutierrez and the twin brother of Raymond Gutierrez.


Gutierrez began acting as a child with his twin brother. He has worked in many movies with his father and his brothers. He appeared on the GMA-7 show Click and primetime series Habang Kapiling Ka with Angelika dela Cruz. He starred in the TV fantasy series Mulawin which aired from August 2, 2004 until March 18, 2005, where he played the lead character Aguiluz. The series led to a feature-length film of the same name (Mulawin: The Movie). Since then he has played lead roles in other GMA-7 shows including Sugo, Kamandag, Codename: Asero, Zorro, Lupin, Full House, and Captain Barbell. Gutierrez signed a non-exclusivity contract with Viva Artists Agency in 2008, wherein he worked in a movie Patient X and where his ex-girlfriend Anne Curtis is a talent; in 2015, he, his twin brother Raymond and sister Ruffa signed an exclusivity contract with Viva Artists Agency.[1]

In 2012, Gutiérrez headlined GMA Network's upcoming Heavy Drama & Action Series entitled Makapiling Kang Muli. He is the host of the 2012 documentary show, Pinoy Adventure.

Gutierrez is currently a freelance actor following the end of his exclusive contract with GMA Network on June 26, 2013.[2] On August 7, it was reported by the Philippine Entertainment Portal that Guiterrez had fathered a child with actress Sarah Lahbati. The couple welcomed a boy whom they named Zion back in April 2013.[3] He later confirmed the news on the first episode of It Takes Gutz to Be a Gutierrez, a reality TV program that revolves around his family's life. The show began airing on June 2014.[4][5]


In 2009, Gutierrez was charged with reckless imprudence, arising from the death of his production assistant, Norman Pardo, who died in a car accident in May 2009. Gutierrez and Pardo were driving to Manila from Silang, Cavite. Gutierrez was injured, and Pardo, seated in the passenger seat, died on the spot.[6]

In August 2012, the Court of Appeals reinstated the charge of reckless imprudence resulting in homicide. The appellate court granted the petition filed by Pardo's widow seeking the nullification of the two resolutions that had been issued by former justice secretaries Agnes Devanadera and Alberto Agra, respectively. The appellate court stated, "To the mind of this court, if indeed private respondent was not driving fast, it would have been easy for him to stop his car and thwart any untoward incident."[7]
