Albie Casino is Alan Benedict “Albie” Lee Casiño in real life and was born on May 14, 1993 in Makati, Philippines. He is a Filipino actor who became famous after playing a role in “Mara Clara,” opposite Julia Montes, Kathryn Bernardo and John Manalo under the flagship of ABS-CBN Network. In May 2009, he starred in a TV show “Your Song Presents: Gimik 2010.” The show went on until the early part of 2010.
In June of 2011, ex-girlfriend Andi Eigenmann admitted that she was 5 months pregnant but did not give the details of the father yet. It was only in the later part of September 2011 that she admitted publicly that the father of her daughter was Albie Casino, being her first boyfriend. Albie was vehemently denying that he was the father of Andi’s unborn daughter by then, and created conflict between the families. The parents of Albie were even suggesting for a DNA test to prove that their son was indeed the father of the child, to which Andi’s mom, Jaclyn strongly disagreed.
The controversies did not end there, and there was an instance that Albie and Andi accidentally met in one of the bars sometime May 2012. He was allegedly thrown wine in his face by Andi followed by a slap in the face to his surprise. He immediately went to the restroom to clean himself up and decided to leave. On the way to the parking lot, he was allegedly followed by Andi’s companions Frank Magalona, Carlos Concepcion, Neil Arce, and Jeck-Jeck Lacson, son of a politician, Ping Lacson.
Albie Casino revealed that he was often misunderstood ever since he began to join the showbiz industry. The privacy of his life is the only thing that he really wanted but is impossible when in this kind of work. He says that people always judged him based on what they have read and heard about him only without even trying to know the real truth. This young actor had experienced things he did not imagine that could happen in his life, and most painful thing is that his family has already been dragged into various controversies against him.
Albie’s parents and siblings have always been supportive of him, especially in times like these. He was just so grateful that whatever had happened, his family stood by him especially in every difficult aspect of his life. Words are not enough to express how he feels about having a very understanding mother who only has good intentions for him.
Albie is open to work with his “Mara Clara” friends when the time comes. He said they had developed some special bonding during the TV series. Recently, Albie was said to have transferred to ABC5 to do some projects. He said that it was the best decision to do for the moment so that everyone can move on and be happy. He even mentioned that there was an effort to make amends to Andi and her mom to reconcile and hopefully everything will just fall into place again.
