It's been two decades since matinee idol Rico Yan's untimely death, but his family and fans continue to keep his memory alive. Just recently, fans came across photos of his nephew, Alfy Tueres, and they could not help but be *amazed* at their uncanny resemblance.
Alfy is the son of Geraldine Yan-Tueres, the late actor's sister.
Fans have been calling him "little Rico Yan," while others named him the "mini-me" of the late actor, noting that they have very similar smiles and facial features.
One netizen said that they are reminded of Rico whenever they look at Alfy's photos. "Pag nakikita kita, naalala ko Tito Rico mo," they wrote in a comment.
Others have expressed their desire to see him follow his late uncle's footsteps and enter the world of showbiz.
Rico appeared in numerous films and shows throughout his career, the most notable being Got 2 Believe, which starred him and then-onscreen and IRL partner, Claudine Barretto. He also appeared in shows like Mara Clara, Gimik, and Mula Sa Puso.
He died in March 2022 at the young age of 27 due to a cardiac arrest resulting from acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis.
