Marky Cielo (1988-2008)

Mark Angelo Cadaweng Cielo in real life left his fans and went to glory on Dec 7 2008 for a still unknown reason. his mother, Mildred, stated that she was waking the actor but doesn't respond. he was rushed on nearby Antipolo Doctor's Hospital but declared dead upon arrival. his remains rest at St. Peter Memorial Chapel of Our Lady of Good Voyage Cathedral in Antipolo City and will be taken at the Benguet Province.

winning as Ultimate Sole Survivor, a reality artista-search on GMA 7, Starstruck, Cielo has become a crowd favorite and immediately rose to his stardom with a lot of showbiz projects. he had a role on Encantadia: Pag-ibig Hanggang Wakas, as a son of a Sang'gre and reigned over the legacy of his ancestors; rivaled on Mark Herras on the weekly variety show, SOP; teaming up and delivering a funny stint on Startalk; a lead role on the remake of Shaider, as Zaido Green in Zaido: Pulis Pangkalawakan and others. sadly, he didn't make it to continue his upcoming project with Yasmien Kurdi on GMA7.

proud of his native roots as an Igorot, he is dubbed as an essential part of regional consciousness by Mr. Butch Guerrero, a writer connected with the University of the Philippines’ Creative Writing Center and an observer of pop culture.

he will be missed.
