Who is the young guy that played Katrina Halili’s leading man in Magpakailanman? Netizens are amazed at his take on the very challenging role given to him.
Choosing the right actors for crucial role has always been the top priority of every casting team in every show. The look, the age, the ability to bring the character into life—all these are important aspects that must be satisfactorily pulled off by an actor.
For Magpakailanman’s production team, Bruce Roeland checked off every single one of them. This budding young actor recently got his biggest break as one of the people headlining the latest episode of Magpakailanman. The drama anthology features the real story of a family with complicated relationships that was impossible to navigate.
For this episode, Bruce played the role of a young boy who unintentionally fell in love with his father’s live-in partner. The woman who he fell in love with is none other than Katrina Halili, one of the most brilliant Kapuso actresses of her generation.
As described by GMA Artist Center, this episode was about the complicated nature of relationship of a grown woman and a teenage boy. “Paano kaya kung ang isang anak ay magkagusto sa kinakasama ng kanyang ama? Panoorin ang isang kakaibang kuwento ng kanilang pamilya…”
After watching the said episode, followers of the young actor can’t help but sing praises to him for his wonderful portrayal of the character. It was not a typical role that he can relate to, and the dynamics of being partnered to a more mature actress is definitely not something he is used to. But Bruce was able to prove his worth as an actor, now this break gave him the chance to show the industry that they should look out for him.
Can you believe that this talented boy is only 14 years old? That’s right! At his young age, he was able to impress the public with his talent. His Instagram page is full of comments of admiration from his fans, and how they appreciated his work on Magpakailanman’s Asawa ng Ama Ko episode.
For Bruce, this is the most challenging role he has ever done so far. He wrote in an Instagram post, “Ngayong gabi mapapanood po natin sa Magpakailanman ang first ever challenging role na gagampanan ko as a teen. Kung paano kinaharap ng isang bata ang isang naiibang damdamin para sa kanyang madrasta.”
Surely, we can expect more amazing work in the future from this young actor. Look out for this rising star, Kapuso fans!
