Meet Piolo Pascual
As a film actor, Piolo Pascual first won an acting award as Best Supporting Actor for his role in the critically-acclaimed drama Dekada ‘70 during the 2002 Metro Manila Film Festival. The movie tackles how a middle-class family struggled with and faced new changes as they were caught in the middle of a tumultuous decade. Pascual’s role, the eldest son who (with the support of his father) attempts to rail against the government, requires him to shed off all his clothes and lie on a block of ice while a fan is switched on. He also won either a Best Actor or a Best Supporting Actor award for the same role from most, if not all, of the award-giving ceremonies in the Philippines.
As a TV actor, Piolo is a favorite leading man for ABS-CBN’s drama series. His past shows include Sa Piling Mo (2006), Mangarap Ka (2004), Sa Puso Ko, Iingatan Ka (2001-2003) and Sa Sandaling Kailangan Mo Ako (1998-1999).
Moreover, Piolo has several endorsements on his shoulder. These include Max’s Restaurant, Timex watches, Selecta ice cream, Bench overhauled jeans, San Miguel coffee and Banco de Oro.
