From a certain angle, they actually do look like brothers that could be from the same mother.
“#BrosForLife”, FPJ’s Ang Probinyano star John Prats used in the captions of an Instagram post featuring him and the bro for life Sam Milby. There’s no question that their friendship is as solid as it gets. Sam, who was one of the lead stars in the recently concluded teleserye Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin, was one of John’s best men at his wedding. The two actors are also business partners, and even a tandem of director and editor. Sam is so close with John’s family that he’s practically part of it.
There was even a time, when they were both single, that John would sleep at Sam’s place for days. “Tumatambay ako doon para hindi siya malungkot,” he explained on Magandang Buhay. Because Sam’s house was too big for just two people and two dogs, John took it upon himself to keep his bro company. “Tambay o magsho-shopping?” Sam joked. Turns out, John took this opportunity to raid his best friend’s closet. “Baka hindi mo na nagagamit,” he explained. Luckily, Sam did not mind sharing with his best bud but he was surely lucky that they did not have the same shoe size.

When Isabel Oli came into John’s life, Sam was there as the welcome third wheel and wingman. Now that the couple are married, however, Sam has been promoted to their “baby boy” because Isabel always thinks of him as their baby. Although, John prefers to personally call him “babe”.
More than having nicknames for each other, Sam is truly part of the family. When he first came here to the Philippines, he didn’t have any relatives in the country which is why he was grateful to have made a brother in John.
