After his revelation, friends of the actor organized a dinner in Quezon City to raise funds for the needed treatment.

An alumnus of the University of Santo Tomas, Bernardo first started acting in theater before venturing into film. He bagged the Gawad Urian Best Supporting Actor award for his performance in Ishmael Bernal’s classic “Manila By Night”. But for televiewers, he is more fondly known for playing the role of Steve Carpio, the archenemy to Dolphy’s character Kevin Cosme in the sitcom “Home Along Da Riles”.

He was last seen in the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival Best Picture winner “Ang Larawan” and Joel Lamangan’s “The Significant Other”. JB
