MANILA - American actor Gabriel Macht, known for his role as lawyer Harvey Specter in the hit television series “Suits,” is in the Philippines.

The actor, who arrived in the country on March 8, is currently in Ormoc, Leyte, to help promote Globe Telecom's nation-building advocacy for the survivors of super typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan).

"Project Wonderful", the company's partnership project with the Department of Social Welfare and Development, aims to help grant livelihood opportunities for the survivors and beneficiaries identified by the government agency.

"Witnessing the devastation of typhoon Haiyan, I felt compelled to raise awareness and financial aid to help thousands of people still struggling to get back on their feet. There is so much work still to do. I’m excited to be part of rebuilding and I’m hoping that so many more will join the effort," Macht said in an earlier report.

Aside from his role as a lawyer in the hit series, Macht is also known for the movies "Love & Other Drugs", "The Spirit" and "The Good Shepherd."
