10 FACTS ABOUT TONY LABRUSCA
The name Tony Labrusca surely rings a bell! Well, there is really a reason why a lot of people, including men, have been talking about him these days. In fact, he could be the most talked about personality on social media and several gatherings right now.
When the trailer of his upcoming digital movie with Angel Aquino was released, it immediately gathered six million hits in just a matter of 24 hours. What everyone could exclaim was about the passion the two shared onscreen.
In the original film “Glorious,” which will be shown exclusively on the online platform iWanTV this month, Angel plays the role of a 50-year-old woman who fell in love with Tony, a young man who is three decades younger than her. The May-December affair is somehow seen by some as a taboo until now. They have probably failed to recognize that there is nothing wrong with it for as long as both of them truly love each other.
Along with the appreciation of many netizens of how the love scenes were done in the film, their curiosity about the veteran actress’ leading man also rose. Who is this good-looking guy passionately kissing Angel on “Gorgeous”? Here are some interesting facts about him:
