The cute little boy from a detergent commercial in the early 2000s is now a man. Remember “Tolits”? Bernard Joecel Forbes in real life and when he entered the showbiz industry, they called him BJ “Tolits” Forbes. His first appearance on TV was when he joined Eat Bulaga’s “That’s My Boy” in 2003. Although he didn’t win the grand prize, his cute face, wit, and talent made him a co-host of the said noontime show for three years.
Joining Eat Bulaga opened a lot of doors to this young talent. BJ “Tolits” appeared in many TV shows in GMA like Mulawin, Etheria, Fantastikids and even starred in ABS-CBN’s teleserye Ngayon at Kailaman in 2019. He also did a project with Bianca Umali and Miguel Tanfelix entitled “Sahaya” in 2019 as well.
He also did a lot of acting stints on the big screen just like Urduja, Enteng Kabisote, Exudos: Tales from the Enchanted Kingdom, and Tales from the Enchanted Kingdom where he won Best Child Actor award in the 24th Luna Awards. Aside from acting on screen, BJ also joined the theater arts and also became a TV host of “Lakbayin Ang Magandang Pilipinas.”
While doing some acting gigs, BJ continued his studies and took Computer Science at STI. Just like other local celebrities, he is now starting his own Youtube channel and aspires to become a famous Vlogger. He is also in public service, serving as SK Chairman in his hometown in Angono, Rizal.
At 22, we can say that he has done a lot. He started working at a very young age and has surpassed a lot of challenges in life. On his Instagram account with more than 5,000 followers, he posted a picture of his family, including his cute baby daughter. He has done so many roles in television, but the best role so far…the the role of being a proud father to his little angel.
