Presenting the newest hunk in town, Mikael Daez! He will be paired with Marian Rivera in two GMA-7 projects, first in the horror-comedy series, Ang Spooky Mo Presents Bampirella and in the epicserye, Amaya. Mikael Daez stands at 6’0″ and his shoe size is 11 inches (hmmm..LOL). Mikael Daez is 23 years old and is a true-blue Atenean. He studied in Ateneo De Manila University from grade school to a Business Administration degree in college.
Mikael Daez is also a ramp and commercial model from the country’s premier talent agency, Mercator, headed by Jonas Antonio Gaffud. And unlike the sprinkling of half and halfs in town, Mikael is pure Filipino, and admits to being a Lola’s boy, he lives with his grandmother in Makati.
Mikael is the second of eight siblings of six guys and two girls. Mikael Daez was discovered when he did ramp modeling for the Philippine Fashion Week in October 2009 which eventually led to him landing in roles in TV commercials starting in June 2010 for Jollibee Champ, Dole, SM, among others. Mikael Daez landed a much coveted role in Amaya which was reportedly offered to Zanjoe Marudo, Diether Ocampo, Tom Rodriguez, Derek Ramsay, Geoff Eigenmann, Mike Tan, JC Tiuseco, Luis Alandy, Jome Silayan, Benedict Campos and Marian Rivera ex-boyfriend, Ervic Vijandre.
Another Amaya leading man is reportedly Sid Lucero, who if true will make a jump from ABS-CBN to GMA. With the entry of Mikael Daez and being paired with Marian Rivera in two projects at that, may madevelop kaya? Magselos kaya ang boyfriend ni Marian Rivera na si Dingdong Dantes kay Mikael Daez? Abangan.
