Newbie actor Diego Loyzaga joins the cast of Mara Clara


Diego Loyzaga will be introduced in Mara Clara as Derrick, a friend of Mara (Kathryn Bernardo). The son of Cesar Montano and Teresa Loyzaga will reprise the role originally played by Rico Yan.




In 2008, PEP blogger Giselle Sanchez wrote about Cesar Montano’s reunion with his son Diego. Back then, his son with Teresa Loyzaga was living in Australia. Now, Diego wants to make his own mark in showbiz by signing up with ABS-CBN and starring in Mara Clara.
