Bugoy Cariño Plays an 8-Year-Old Parent to 7 Siblings in ‘MMK’

Internationally acclaimed child actor Bugoy Cariño will topbill ABS-CBN's "Maalaala Mo Kaya" this Saturday (May 3) to portray the character of Jose, an eight-year-old boy who stands as a parent to his seven younger siblings after their mother and father abandoned them.


Jose brings his one-month-old sibling with him when he goes to school. And everytime his youngest sibling cries, Jose, with his brother in his arms, runs to a room in the school and ask alms from his teachers.
