After being with ABS-CBN for several years, actor-comedian Smokey Manaloto returned to GMA to join Alden Richards’ The Gift TV series as ‘Bradley’.
He’s a connection of Helga portrayed by Sophie Albert and will bring a huge change to Sep’s life. It’s still unknown whether he will be an antagonist or the other way around.
To confirm Smokey’s role for The Gift, the network’s official website released some behind the scenes photos of him with Alden.
His last show for ABS-CBN was in Ipaglaban Mo’s Tatay episode with Aleck Bovick directed by Ian Flores.
Smokey was one of GMA Network’s SST: Salo-Salo Together hosts with Randy Santiago, Dennis Padilla, and Liezl Martinez which aired from 1993 to 1995. He also appeared in Family Feud way back in 2010 along with his SST co-hosts.
Since then, the 41-year-old actor has done both leading and supporting roles in movies while with ABS-CBN such as Home Along da Riles with Dolphy, Every Breath U Take with Piolo Pascual and Angelica Panganiban, and In the Name of Love as Patrick.
