Arjo Atayde finally bid farewell to his villainous character Joaquin in ABS-CBN's primetime series FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.
This was after he kidnapped Cardo's (Coco Martin) wife Alyanna (Yassi Pressman) at the night of their wedding.
Cardo came to the rescue of his wife and had a face-off with his mortal enemy.
In the episode aired on May 24, Joaquin finally met his death when Cardo stabbed him on the neck using a knife.
Arjo posted on Instagram a photo of his last look as Joaquin.
In the caption, the 26-year-old actor gave his final goodbye to the character he breathed life to for almost two years.
He wrote, "You will forever be a part of my life. I will miss you Joaquin. You've done so much to me.. i love you Joaqs. Till we meet again [cry emoji] #JoaquinTuazon #TeamPromdi FOREVER!"
Prior to Joaquin's death in FPJ's Ang Probinsyano, Arjo had been posting behind-the-scenes photos of his character's last few days in the teleserye.
Arjo's portrayal in this series received good reviews from audiences and critics alike.
In fact, Arjo won the Teleserye Supporting Actor of the Year in The PEP List Year 3 held in August 2016. In his acceptance speech, he dedicated his award to Coco.
The death of Arjo's character signifies the start of the action-drama series's Book 2.
