Jhong Hilario posts throwback Mara Clara scene with Julia Montes


This Mara Clara scene might just serve as an early warning to Jhong Hilario’s month-old daughter not to disobey her parents when she grows up. 

On his Instagram account, the actor-host posted a video of his scene with Julia Montes from the 2010 Kapamilya series Mara Clara with a special message to his baby girl Sarina.

To recall, Jhong played the role of Gary, the father of Julia’s character Clara.

“Alam mo na Sarina. ??? Diba Clara @montesjulia08 ? Hahaha,” wrote Jhong as caption. 

The scene showed Gary asking Clara to get up, take a bath and get ready for school. Clara, however, acted stubborn and refused to report for her classes.

Fed up by Clara’s behaviour, Gary splashed a pail of water on her head and warned her not to test his patience. 

The throwback video brought laughter to netizens, as well as Julia who also left a comment. 

“Hahahaha naku baby Sarina ❤️❤️❤️ Tatay Gary lang ang ganyan, ang Tatay Jhong super mag-love,” said Julia. 

Jhong welcomed his first child with non-showbiz girlfriend Maia Leviste Azores last month.

The 44-year-old announced his departure from It’s Showtime late March and from the show Your Face Sounds Familiar to focus on his family.
