Randy Santiago has finally let us “see” what's behind his trademark shades.
Randy Santiago is a Filipino actor/comedian, singer and a performer. He is the brother of director Rowell Santiago and actor Raymart Santiago.
Santiago started his career by joining the Cicada Band touring club in Manila, Singapore, and Malaysia in 1980's. His musical talents brought him to the showbiz industry.
The actor earned his popularity by doing singer and acting in some movie project. His signature glasses was his trademark as an artist, but most people notice that he never removes them on screen.
During the show, the Momshies asked what is the story behind his eye.
Randy then revealed the real reason behind his sunglasses and said:
“actually, wala naman problema sa mata ko”.
“Nakikita ‘yung kanang mata ko. Pero wala namang pagkakaiba ‘yung dalawang [mata ko] eh, mas maliit lang ‘yung isa,” he continued.
Randy shared that is was because of cyst which first appeared above his eyelid. After a year, the cyst appeared again so he needs to undergo a surgery for the second time. Unfortunately, a vital part of his eyes was accidentally cut by the doctor, causing his left eye to be only half-open.
Despite what happened, he still remained very confident and his sunglasses was his ultimate trademark which made the actor known throughout the country.
