MANILA - ABS-CBN is searching for the next child actor who will follow in the footsteps Zaijan Jaranilla, Raikko Mateo and Izzy Canillo, who have each top-billed a top-rating primetime series.
Dubbed "The Next Little Bida," the search is open to boys aged 5 to 10 years old. The auditions will take place on August 9 and 10 at the ABS-CBN Center Road in Quezon City.
The TV plug for the search features scenes from the respective hit series of child stars Jaranilla, Mateo and Canillo.
Jaranilla, whose career was launched via the 2010 series "May Bukas Pa," was recently part of "Ikaw Lamang" and now co-stars with Piolo Pascual in "Hawak Kamay."
Mateo endeared viewers as the titular character in "Honesto" early this year, while Canillo portrayed the young Coco Martin in the afternoon series "My Little Juan."
