On May 5, actor Jake Cuenca shared a video on Instagram with Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin co-star Gerald Anderson showing a man who looks exactly like him.
In his post, he stated that he’s often imitated but never did he experience being duplicated and the guy in the video highly resembles the actor.
He is Gabriel Angelo Quitoriano. He is dubbed as Cuenca’s doppelganger because of their “almost identical” features. Some people may even think they are twins.
The two shared videos and photos of them together online and people are going crazy over their uncanny resemblance. Even director Dan Villegas didn’t quite notice that the guy is not Cuenca.
Quitoriano played extra roles in various tele-seryes both in ABS-CBN and in GMA.
According to Quitoriano, he met Cuenca during the taping of Ikaw Lamang. At the time, Quitoriano couldn’t be mistaken as Jake because of his beard.
But later on, it is hard to differentiate the two.
