Marky Cielo

Marky Cielo has Igorot blood. It's a fact that cannot be denied in his physical features. From day 1 of his Starstruck quest, I had a hint that he would emerge as a finalist, if not a grand winner. How many actors with native blood do we have in local show business? And if we have a pool of actors with native blood, are they proud of their heritage?

I lived in Baguio for five years. I mingled with different people of different ethnicities like Tagalog, Kapampangan, Ilocano, Visayan, Igorot, Kankana-ey, Ibaloi, Itneg and foreigners like Korean, Chinese, Nepalese, American, Indian, Malaysian, Indonesian, Pakistani and others.From my own experience, native inhabitants of the Cordillera region have this inferiority complex in terms of their physical appearance.What's wrong with being a native? It's a rarity to find someone with native blood who's proud of his heritage. Marky's success as a Starstuck grand winner could motivate other aspiring natives to join show business.
