Model physique, charming face and signature long hair – these are the top three things that come into mind when Gil Cuerva enters the picture. The twenty four year old actor and host took care of his long locks for almost five years as it defined his identity in the glamorous world of show business. From his first romantic-comedy-scific drama series “My Love from the Star” to his first hosting show “Taste Buddies”, Gil’s signature long hair has brought him to where he is today. Finally, it’s about time he bids goodbye to it.
While filming GMA’s newest television drama series “Beautiful Justice”, Gil was caught on camera as he was sat on a barber’s chair and having his hair cut short. He is currently portraying the role of Agent Vin Ocampo in the said teleserye. However, Gil doesn’t want to spoil the story as to why he needed to cut his hair. He said in an interview that Kapuso viewers and fans will later on find out the reason why Vin Ocampo needs a haircut.
When asked about his new look, Gil wishes that both fans and tele viewers will like it as much as he does. He also added that he will keep the short hair for a while and play with it by changing the style every now and then.
Gil started a career in modeling in Hong Kong since he was a teenager. At the age of twenty one, he finally decided to audition for the remake of the South Korean teleserye “My Love from the Star”, in which he portrayed the character of Matteo Domingo. Gil also starred in other shows from then on such as “Dear Uge: K-drama Rama”, “Super Ma’am” “My Guitar Princess”, and “Sahaya”. In 2017, he was nominated as “Best New Male TV Personality” at the 31st PMPC Star Awards for Television.
