I like Johnny Delgado as an actor. He was one of the best actors, the movie industry had. Today Thursday however, he succumbed to cancer.

Here is the news:

Movie and television actor Johnny Delgado has passed away after a year of battling cancer. He was 61.

Television host German Moreno said in his radio show on dzBB that Delgado, born Juan Marasigan Feleo, died at around 1:45 p.m. Thursday.

Delgado, husband of multi-awarded director Laurice Guillen, was diagnosed with lymphoma or cancer of the immune system in 2008.

Delgado is best known for being part of the television gag show Goin’ Bananas in the 1980s. He also gained recognition for his role in the family drama Tanging Yaman, where he won the FAMAS Award and the Metro Manila Film Festival Award for Best Actor in 2000.
