Fred Galang, actor-pastor

REMEBER WHEN? - Danny Dolor - The Philippine Star

The late Fred Galang was an actor who turned pastor when his showbiz years were over. He died last July 18 when he visited relatives and friends in the Philippines. Fred was based in the US, where he preached the Word of God.

In the mid- and late ‘60s, Fred was a Nepomuceno contract star, appearing in, among others, Igorota, The Hunted and Pulubi. He won a FAMAS Best Supporting Actor award for Igorota, which starred Charito Solis.

After his stint with Nepomuceno, Fred starred in adult dramas and action pictures, including Fortress in the Sun with Tony Ferrer and Nancy Kwan.

Other actors and celebrities who became pastors include Eddie Mesa, Manny Pacquiao, the late Nestor de Villa and son Jeric Soriano. Phillip Salvador, Piolo Pascual and Hayden Kho hope to follow in their footsteps. — RKC
