Taong Lego is back!
Christian Bables is set to topbill the CIGNAL-produced original series Born Beautiful.
This is a spin-off of the Metro Manila Film Fest 2016 entry Die Beautiful starring Paolo Ballesteros.
A 50-second teaser was released last Wednesday, July 12, on Die Beautiful's official Facebook page.
The spin-off is said to depict the life of Christian's character Barbs after the death of his transgender-bestfriend Trisha, played by Paolo.
The caption said, "To all the fans of "Die Beautiful" who ever wondered what happened to Barbs after Trisha's death, now you will know her story!
"Nagbabalik ang BFF Ng Bayan! Abangan ang bagong original series starring Christian Bables in the role na nag-trending at minahal ng mga manonood! BORN BEAUTIFUL! Coming soon on CIGNAL Entertainment!"
Christian's portrayal in Die Beautiful received good reviews and recognition from critics and moviegoers.
His character also became known as "Taong Lego" when Trisha teased him because of his full-bangs hairstyle.
In his Instagram account, Direk Jun Lana posted a photo of Paolo Ballesteros and Christian Bables together.
The director wrote in the caption: "Just bumped into these two. #sequel" This fueled speculations that Paolo could be part of the spin-off series.
Christian broke down in tears when he received the Best Supporting Actor Award at the Metro Manila Film Festival 2016 Gabi ng Parangal last December 29, 2016.
Currently, Christian is busy shooting three movies: Finally Found Someone with Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz, Ghost Bride with Kim Chiu, and his solo movie Recipe For Love.
He is also nominated as PEPster's Choice Breakout Star of the Year for The PEP List Year 4 and is also included in the list of YES! 100 Most Beautiful Stars 2017.
