I know, I know. He’s not Filipino. But he is surely popular in the Philippines. Mario Maurer became an instant sensation in the Philippines after the release of The Love of Siam, wherein he played a gay role. Since then, he developed a fan base among the gay market and eventually hitting mainstream with another Thai movie, Crazy Thing Called Love.
Mario had graced the cover of many sexy magazines but unfortunately for us, a full-blown sex scandal has not happened yet. I guess, we'll keep waiting.
