Child stars live in our memories forever.
Their adorable and cute faces always pop up when we remember their remarkable movies or TV programs. But as they grew up, their unforgettable facial expressions when they were kids continue to delight us when we chance upon their throwback photos in galleries or image searches online.
And when these former child stars graced Entertainment.ABS-CBN.com’s Kapamilya Chat recently, we couldn’t help but show them their childhood pics and ask them to mimic their throwback poses as child stars.
Makisig Morales had not lost his boyhood charm as he imitated his kid snaps, mostly from his popular lead role in Super Inggo.
Who could not be doting to such an adorable young girl named Matet de Leon as one of the most popular child actresses in the 1980s. And in this “challenge,” we asked Matet, who now appears in the rerun of The Legal Wife, to imitate her cutest photos ever as that four-year-old kid that shook the showbiz world.
Definitely, Zaijian Jaranilla is one child wonder we were all amazed watching as he grew up from being that inspirational, blessed kid in May Bukas Pa to being one of the most talented actors in the country. Duplicating those lovable poses as a kid, mostly from May Bukas Pa, Noah and Lorenzo’s Time, made us really ponder on the amount of time that has passed in our lives.
Jairus Aquino, who we currently see in Pamilya Ko, is again one child actor we always recalled as the “bestfriend ng bayan,” being the delightful and bubbly sidekick of Makisig Morales’ Super Inggo
, Jomar. He would also emulate his kid self in his many child portrayals onscreen.
And, of course, who would not forget the award-winning child actor Carlo Aquino, who uttered one of the most repeated and unforgettable lines in Filipino cinema in “Bata, Bata, Paano Ka Ginawa” with the Star for All Seasons Vilma Santos-Recto? The A Soldier’s Heart star definitely made us look back at those days he impressed us with his marvelous acting skills when he was a kid.
Check out more of the heartwarming, enjoyable, and fun poses these former child stars did in recreating their throwback kid photos in this video.
