Child Actor Bugoy Carino Wins An International Acting Award For 'Alagwa'

BUGOY CARINO is one of the most talented actors we’ve ever met. He’s fantastic on the dance floor and as an actor, he’s tops. His real name is Roger Kyle Carino and was born on Sept. 3, 2002. He started dancing when he was 4 and appeared in various TV commercials. In 2009, he joined Star Circle Quest Kids and won. He then joined “Goin’ Bulilit” and did other TV shows like “Agimat”, “Kokey at Ako”, “Agua Bendita”, “Imortal”, “100 Days to Heaven”, “E-Boy”, “Anna Liza” and “Wansapanataym”. He played Jericho Rosales’ son in “I’ll Be There” and now, they’re together again, in “Alagwa”, where they both won awards. Bugoy won as best supporting actor at the Asean Filmfest in Sarawak, Malaysia while Jericho won best actor at the Urian and in three foreign filmfests. Prior to this, Bugoy also won as 2011 Metro Filmfest best child actor for “Shake Rattle and Roll 13”. He didn’t expect to win an international award in Sarawak. “Big stars daw sa kanilang sariling mga bansa ang mga nakalaban ko, kaya nakaka-proud talaga,” he says. “Sayang lang nga, wala ako roon kaya binigay na lang sa’kin yung trophy later on.”

He’s happy to be part of a movie like “Alagwa”, which is about human trafficking. “Sa story kasi, nasa mall kami, jumingle akong mag-isa, tapos may nagsabi sa’king sumama ko sa kanya dahil bilin daw ng tatay ko, yun pala kikidnapin ako. So, tinuturo nito sa mga bata na wag basta sasama kahit kanino, lalo’t di mo kakilala.”

He wants to thank Jericho Rosales for really acting like his real dad. “Mabait siya. Binili pa ko ng toy helicopter at ng basketball shoes. Napakagaling niyang artista kaya mahahawa ka.”

“Alagwa” is now showing in theatres nationwide. Since he’s turning into a teenager in two year, our wish for Bugoy is to grow big and tall and not stunted in growth like most child stars. Also, he might want to change his name. Bugoy is okay for a child actor, but for a future teen matinee idol, such a name doesn’t sound very promising.
