For teen star McNeal “Awra” Briguela, there’s always something to be grateful for. “I’m happy that my Kuya Coco (Martin, his costar in ‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano’) takes care of me. He and Dreamscape have given me the chance to work on ‘Super Ving’ for ‘Wansapanataym,’ and Kuya Coco has included me in the cast of the MMFF entry, ‘Ang Panday,’” said the 13-year-old actor.
“When he sees me, he always wishes me luck or says, ‘Congrats!’ But, what I’ll always be thankful for is the chance to continue schooling through the scholarship that he gave me. He’s truly a blessing to me.” —MARINEL CRUZ
