Mark Gil during his younger days


  1. I was really shocked when I saw Andi Eigenmann post because I have no idea that Mark Gil has cancer. Napanood ko pa nga siya sa Legal Wife. RIP

  2. Me too, I was really shocked. I think no one outside their family and friends knew about his sickness. May he rest in peace.

  3. I remember reading about his health problem before, but didn't know it was cancer. RIP Mark Gil.

  4. I was shocked, I really love his old 90's movies. I love old movies. I'm sure he's happy now with the Almighty.
