Albie Casiño not part of new Kapamilya teen show

It's confirmed, controversial young actor Albie Casiño is not part of ABS-CBN's upcoming teen-oriented series “Growing Up.” He was reportedly ‘replaced’ by newcomer Daniel Padilla, his “bestfriend,” as Kathryn Bernardo's leading man.

Daniel will play the role of “Patrick - ang ‘heartthrob na badboy’.”

The show's cast include Julia Montes, Diego Loyzaga, Neil Coleta, Yen Santos, EJ Fallurin and Kiray. Read more about it and watch the trailer here.

Although it has never been confirmed, netizens over the social networking sites, forums and blogs point to Albie as the one who purportedly got Kapamilya actress Andi Eigenmann pregnant.

Some fans who were dismayed on Albie because of the controversies said he is not a good role-model for the youth.

Also, past issues hurled against him, which include among others his supposed offer to Andi to take abortive pill, the alleged hitting incident at Greenbelt, as well as his slamming of Andi online by saying that she was a “cheater,” have enabled netizens to pressume that his career is “over.”
