I had followed Starstruck Batch 3 series in 2006 and I am impressed with a young actor named Marky Cielo by way of his intensified performance as a rebel teen in one of the screen tests of the reality talent search 'Starstruck'. This kid was very promising and I was hoping for Marky Cielo to star in a Lino Brocka-type of film that would showcase his talents. Sad to say he died in his sleep yesterday, a Sunday Dec. 7, 2008. The cause of death is still under investigation, some say he died of a sleeping condition known as 'bangungot'
Here's a video in 3 parts from 24 Oras which aired today Dec. 8, 2008
