Kiko Estrada is once again gracing us with his laudable acting prowess as he stars in the newest drama series Bagong Umaga, with Heaven Peralejo, Barbie Imperial, Michelle Vito, Tony Labrusca, and Yves Flores. Kiko will portray the role of Otep, the loving son of his step mom Diana (Glydel Mercado) whom he owes a lot for taking responsibility and care of him.
The young actor has proven that he’s worth all the opportunities given to him to star in huge drama projects. Let us walk you through the journey of Kiko as a Kapamilya actor, looking back at all the teleseryes he appeared in.
Kiko played the role of Bart Dimaguiba in Annaliza who has a secret admiration for his very good friend Luisa (Sue Ramirez). He kept his feelings for her for the longest time until it tore him apart to see that Luisa was already in a relationship with another guy, Jeric (Khalil Ramos). Deeply heartbroken, he decided to just focus on himself as he worked abroad. When he came back, he already would want to confess his feelings to Luisa knowing that it might break their friendship.
MMK (2019) “White Ribbon”
This was definitely a kilig-inducing episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya as Kiko and Janella Salvador portraying the love story of singer-songwriter Moira Dela Torre and her now husband Jason Marvin. This was actually the second time that Kiko and Janella worked together as they already starred in the movie “My Fairy Tail Love Story” where Kiko portrayed the rival of the character of Janella’s then partner Elmo Magalona. But in this MMK episode, you can definitely say that there’s an evident chemistry between the two as Kiko exuded enough charm in portraying the role.
Ipaglaban Mo (2019) “Alegasyon”
Kiko played the role of Michael, whose love interest was Lexa (Meg Imperial) in Ipaglaban Mo “Alegasyon.” He played that “knight-in-shining-armor”-like character in this episode as he gave comfort and consolation to Lexa when she was facing difficult times in her life as she felt like her mother was being over disciplining her by watching all of her actions. The two eventually became a couple but as soon as Lexa’s mother found out about it, she immediately commanded Lexa to end her relationship with Michael because of his financial incapacities. Lexa obeyed her mother but Michael disagreed with her decision and did not let her go. But she later on claimed that he took advantage of her when he saw an opportunity to do it. However, Michael defended himself and said what really happened during that instance.
Pamilya Ko (2020)
Kiko played the character of Bernardo "Beri" R. Mabunga, the “troublemaker” among eight children of Luzviminda (Sylvia Sanchez) and Fernan (Joey Marquez) Mabunga in Pamilya Ko. Most of the time, Beri is stubborn. This is why his siblings would get mad or irritated at him. He would also have misunderstandings or get into arguments with his older brother Chico (JM De Guzman) who just tries to discipline him. But when Chico left their family, Beri took the responsibility of being the kuya among his siblings.
Catch Kiko in what is expected to be his breakthrough role of Otep in the promising and riveting drama Bagong Umaga on October 26 on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z Channel 11.
