Hero Angeles, the winner of Star Circle Quest Season 1, will make a TV comeback on ABS-CBN.
In time for Mother's Day, the 33-year-old actor will bring life to a transgender in the May 13 episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya.
Bugoy Cariño is Hero's co-star in this episode, which is dubbed #MMKTransMom, and directed by Dado Lumibao.
Hero's character would do anything for his son, including denying his own identity.
The young boy was teased because his parent is a transgender. For this reason, he told his son, "Para hindi ka na nila tinutukso, huwag mo na akong tawaging Mama mo."
Hero emerged as the Grand Teen Questor on Star Circle Quest while Sandara Park emerged as runner up on the reality show aired in 2004.
Hero and Sandara formed a popular love team in the past and they starred in several movies together.
In 2008, Hero transferred to GMA-7 after a falling out with ABS-CBN. He became part of Dyesebel and other teleseryes.
Hero returned to the Kapamilya Network to star in Nathaniel in 2015. This was followed by an episode of Ipaglaban Mo.
