Albie, who’s been known for his role as Christian in the top-rating “Mara Clara” series, was supposed to star alongside Mara Clara themseleves–Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes–in the movie “Way Back Home” but he was replaced by Enrique Gil.
And now, Albie is being replaced again. This time by his bestfriend Daniel Padilla in the upcoming youth-oriented program “Growing Up” which is supposed to co-star him once again with Kathryn and Julia and other Mara Clara cast-members like Diego Loyzaga and Kiray Celis.
In an interview by PEP, Albie shared that he’s sad because of the unpleasant changes in his career. But more than losing the projects, he misses being with his friends.
“Hindi ko alam paano ko mae-explain. Of course, I felt sad kasi ang tagal ng Mara Clara. I bonded na with Kathryn, Julia and Diego Loyzaga. Kahit may ibang show na sila and ako rin, I’m still sad kasi yung bond na na-develop ko with them, wala ngayon. I miss them,” the controversial young actor said.
Albie Casino has one more project left with ABS-CBN and it’s the soap opera “Problem Child” where he is slated to work with Andi Eigenmann‘s aunt Cherrie Gil. Albie will also co-star with Yen Santos and Martin del Rosario for the TV adaptation of the classic film but there’s another problem that looms the young actor’s career.
Despite that fact that Albie has reportedly participated in the pictorial for “Problem Child,” rumor has it that he is going to be replaced by the new Kapamilya actor Paulo Avelino.
But of course, Albie will not give up easily without a fight. That’s why he’s working out daily to get buff because the role in “Problem Child” has some daring scenes that requires the male lead to be shirtless. And speaking of shirtless, the name Paulo Avelino will come to mind, right?
Albie is also filming the Regal Films horror movie remake “Aswang” where he plays the role of Jillian Ward‘s older brother. Also in the movie are Lovi Poe, Bembol Roco, Joem Bascon, Precious Lara Quigaman, Niña Jose, Marc Abaya and Paulo Avelino.
