Before he goes off on his mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, singer David Archuleta is getting a little acting experience overseas.
The pint-sized performer from Murray, Utah, is in Manila, filming a miniseries, "Nandito Ako," for Filipino television.
It's the first time he's appeared on TV as a character other than himself. (He has appeared on "iCarly" and "Hannah Montaha," making him the Switzerland in the great kiddie cable TV war.)
Archuleta tweeted this message on Monday: "And it's a wrap for the 1st day of filming! Man, what a learning experience it's been already, haha. It all starts again tomorrow."
He also posted a quick message to fans on YouTube. (Click the image above to watch.)
