WHERE IS – Just watched that beautiful film “Di Magbabago” on Cinema One, starring Carmina Villaroel and Rustom Padilla (now BB Gandanghari), when they were a loveteam on and offscreen.
Now, just asking: Where is BB? Nothing is heard from her now. Surely, wherever she is, BB must be proud and happy that a transgender from Bataan, Geraldine Roman, won a seat in Congress.
Also Charice, Aiza Seguerra, Liza Diño, Arnell Ignacio (ardent supporter of President-elect Duterte), Jon Santos (UP product like Ms. Roman).
WHATEVER HAPPENED – While at it, Highspeed wonders whatever happened to three former child-teenage actors. All talented.
Jiro Manio – Ai-Ai de las Alas spent a lot for his rehabilitation but it seems it didn’t really work. Is he back…
Whatever, may this supremely gifted actor bounce back. Think “Magnifico,” where he won an Urian, the youngest to receive the best actor trophy.
John Wayne Sace – Remember him as Vilma Santos’ youngest son in “Dekada ’70,” which gave him a Metro filmfest best child actor award?
Stefano Mori – Fil-Italian who acted in good films like “May Nagmamahal” with Lorna Tolentino.
HAPPY ENDING – Well, there are child actors with happy ending.
