"Maalaala Mo Kaya" Features The Life Story Of Miss International Queen 2012 Kevin BalotMartin del Rosario will play the role of Kevin Balot in "Maalaala Mo Kaya" this Saturday (May 18) as he tries to prove himself to his father and to society.
The episode will focus on Balot's life as he tries to fulfill his father's wish of becoming an engineer. However, he will soon come out as gay--something his father cannot understand at first.
Balot was not disheartened by the criticisms thrown his way. He instead pursued his dream of being a beauty contestant. Soon, he won in the Miss International Queen pageant in 2012.
Balot grew up as the only son in a brood of three. At first, he tried to keep his sexual preference a secret from his father. However, he soon found out how hard it is to portray someone you're not.
Del Rosario, who has been commended for his acting prowess, will give life to the role. Joining him are Al Tantay, Shamaine Centenera, Kokoy De Santo, Kristel Fulgar, Toby Alejar, Emmanuelle Vera, Cheska Billones, Louise Bernardo, Princess Freking and Dax Bayani.
The episode will be directed by Mae Czarina Cruz and written by Benson Logronio. It was researched by Agatha Lee Ruadap.
