Last seen in a Fathers’ Day episode this year of Channel 2’s Maalaala Mo Kaya, opposite Sam Milby, Leandro Munoz was one of the more serious young actors of his time who showed a lot of potential. He was a Close-Up toothpaste commercial model before he was launched in 1999 as a Star Circle member. That same year, he was the Philippine Movie Press Club’s Male Actor of the Year. He did a couple of big-hit movies before migrating to the US [in LA] in 2002 with his equally-cute brothers, Carlo and Angelo. Leandro has a pre-teen daughter from a previous relationship.
