Ernesto Juan de la Cruz (better known by his stage name, Weng-Weng), was a Filipino action and martial arts film stars, best known for a series of spy films in which he played secret Agent 00.
Dela Cruz was photographed at a pro-Marcos rally in early 1986.
Dela Cruz was awarded a trophy during the Starlight Cultural Foundation's Pasig Cultural Affair, at the Marcos Stadium in Pasig, February 22nd, 1986, for being the "International Action Star of Showbiz World".
A contemporary pressbook cites the film as being another adventure of Agent 00, who, like Mr. Weng, is a government agent, practices martial arts, and is named Weng. It's thus a possibility that they ARE the same character.
Actor Nelson Anderson recalls shooting footage with Weng-Weng, who had what was essentially a cameo role. When questioned by documentary director Andrew Leavold as to whether the character was intended to be Agent 00, Anderson replied in the affirmative.
Common misinformation regarding Weng-Weng is that he starred in the films, "Go Tell It On The Mountain", "MoonBoy From Another Planet", and that he sang a duet with Imelda Marcos of the Frank Sinatra song "My Way". Andrew Leavold asserted that these had been false claims by a rival researcher, meant to mislead him, in his 2017 book, "The Search for Weng-Weng".
