MANILA—After an eventful week on "Ang Probinsyano" where Cardo (Coco Martin) almost died, the cast of the hit show took some much-deserved time off to catch the musical, "Rak of Aegis."

Martin, brothers Rowell and Raymart Santiago, and John Prats were among those from the series who watched the PETA production Friday night. Check out some of the photos below:

The surprise visit meant that Martin had a chance to reunite with Pepe Herrera, who is part of the musical. If one can remember, Herrera played the beloved "Ang Probinsyano" character, Benny.

In one of the most fondly remembered scenes of the long-running primetime drama, Benny sacrificed his life to save Cardo, his best friend, from being shot at by several gunmen during an ambush.

This was after Herrera had asked to be written off the show back in 2017, citing that he needed the rest for health reasons.

"Na-miss kita! Mabuhay ka Pepe," wrote Martin as the caption to a photo of him with Herrera that he posted on Instagram.
