Arjo Atayde Says an Emotional Goodbye to Pepe Herrera's Character on 'Ang Probinsyano!'


Did you know that Arjo Atayde, the actor who plays Joaquin in primetime series 'Ang Probinsyano,' wrote an emotional letter to Pepe Herrera's character, Benny? 

According to Kami.com, Herrera's character died on the series protecting Cardo, his friend. In the series, both characters hated each other from the start but in real life, Atayde and Herrera are very close friends. 

Atayde wrote a long, open letter to the actor when Herrera's final episode was aired on TV last Monday night. 

He uploaded it on his Instagram, with two separate posts. One was paying tribute to Herrera's gift in music through the form of a video, and the other one in a silly photo booth where Coco Martin was also part.

(1/2) It's been a journey...of love, laughter, drama, comedy, and friendship. Benny has personally been one of my favorite characters on Probinsyano and will remain to be till the end. The first time I had a scene with Benny was hard for me because of the way he delivered his lines...it was just so real. His character was a good contrast of mine...full of happiness while mine was angsty. And well, beyond the cameras, I got very close to Pepe that ending his journey on the show, our last scene together, was the hardest for me to do because it was hard to act angry at someone who has easily become not only one of my best friends but my brother. Benny was a happy-go-lucky type of person, one who knew the meaning of camaraderie, and the value of family. I'll have you know that Mr. Pepe Herrera, my brother and best friend, is just the same in real life. I'll never forget the time we talked once and we were talking about how FPJ's Ang Probinsyano helped both our careers and that thanking them or showing them gratitude will never be enough. @pepe.herrera (1/2)
