Filipino-Canadian actor and 90s heartthrob Patrick Guzman has passed away. He was 56.
On Instagram, actress and acting coach Beverly Vergel shared a post by Patrick’s wife Liezle about his “sudden and unexpected passing” last June 15, 2023.
The cause of death was not mentioned, but details about the funeral mass and cremation were included in Liezle’s post.
In another post, Beverly paid tribute to him by sharing photos of them together.
“You are our very own and Canada’s Papa P!” she said, referring to Filipino heartthrob Piolo Pascual. Our deepest condolences to your wife Liezle, son, and the loved ones you left behind,” she posted.
Commenting on Beverly’s post, local celebrities such as Ruby Rodriguez and Jackie Forster also extended their condolences to Patrick’s family.
Tributes poured in for the former 1990s teenage heartthrob from his former colleagues in the local entertainment industry.
Comedian-singer Ogie Alcasid was among the first to pay tribute to Patrick, in now-deleted posts from his Facebook and Instagram pages.
“So shocked and sad that you have gone to heaven so suddenly. Rest now, brother. I will always remember the wonderful times we had while filming so many movies together,” wrote Ogie showing a photo of himself, Patrick, comedian Michael V., and Anjo Yllana during their photo shoot of the 1993 movie “Mama’s Boys 2: Let’s Go Na!”.
Other celebrities like Michael V., Amy Perez, Dennis Padilla, Gelli de Belen, and Dingdong Avanzado have also paid tribute to Patrick in Ogie’s original post on Instagram.
Patrick, who has been based in Canada for years, is known for starring in 90s movies such as “Sa Piling ng Iba” and “Koronang Itim.”
He was also part of ABS-CBN’s game show “Ready, Get Set, Go!” as well as the 2019 film “BROmance: The Movie.”
Patrick was the leading man of Sharon Cuneta in three movies: “Una Kang Naging Akin” (1991), “Ikaw” (1993), and “Kung Ako Na Lang Sana” (2003).
