name: Piolo Jose N. Pascual
bday: January 12, 1977 (Manila)
son: Iñigo

Piolo Pascual leads the cast of the Pinoy adaptation of the hit tv series 'Lovers In Paris' along with KC Concepcion and Zanjoe Marudo.  Today, September 28, 2009, is their pilot telecast replacing another hit tv-series 'Tayong Dalawa' which had a successful last week but received bad reviews for their last two episodes.  'Lovers In Paris' can be seen weeknights 8:30pm right after 'May Bukas Pa'.

Piolo Pascual's paternal grandfather was a German American and his paternal grandmother has mixed Spanish and Austronesian blood. He is a single father to a 9-year-old son named Iñigo.

Piolo's earliest acting experience was in the student theatrical group 'Teatro Tomasino' of the University of Santo Tomas. His early television credits include his stint as Kuya Miguel in ABS-CBN's educational show ATBP and as one of the many teen stars in GMA Network's musical variety show 'That's Entertainment'. His first big break on the small screen came via a weekly primetime series entitled 'Sa Sandaling Kailangan Mo Ako' (The Moment You Need Me), where he received an Asian TV Awards (1999) Best Drama Actor nomination for portraying the villain role of Raffy.

Piolo's early film credits include a brief appearance as Jussi Leino in 'The Untold Story: Vizconde Massacre 2 - God Have Mercy on Us'(1994) and a supporting part in 'Batang PX'(1997). His first big cinema break was the title role in 'Lagarista'(2000) where he received his first Gawad Urian nomination for Best Actor.

In 2002, Piolo played the role of Jules Bartolome opposite Vilma Santos and Christopher de Leon, in 'Dekada '70'(2002). He achieved a rare grand slam feat collecting a total of eight awards from all the existing award-giving bodies during the 2003 awards season in the Best Supporting Actor category starting with the Metro Manila Film Festival in December 2002 and culminating with the Gawad Urian in May 2003.

He has starred opposite the most celebrated female stars of his generation.  'Sa Piling Mo' last 2006 with actress Judy Ann Santos, last 2007 'Walang Kapalit' with Claudine Baretto, last year (2008) 'Lobo' with Angel Locsin and this year (2009) 'Lovers In Paris' with KC Concepcion.

In October of 2007, talent manager Lolit Solis published a tabloid story alleging that Piolo and fellow actor, Sam Milby, were homosexuals and were spotted to be fondling each other in the cafeteria of a famous hotel in Metro Manila. Both filed a libel suit at once. But after eight months, Solis officially retracted the original story and the libel suit was dropped. Piolo finally has been cleared of rumors that he is a bisexual having relations with Torotot leading man Yul Servo, champion-belter Erik Santos, PBB heartthrob Sam Milby, and recently Pop Heartthrob Mark Bautista.

Piolo has a coffee table book entitled 'Piolo: Believing' that showcases his career highlights with photographs from lens-master David Fabros.

He appeared in 'Land Down Under'(2008) with Angel Locsin for Star Cinema under the direction of Rory Quintos. His other film credits include 'Chopsuey'(2007), 'Paano Kita Iibigin'(2007), 'Kagat Ng Dilim'(2006), 'Don't Give Up On Us'(2006), 'D'Anothers'(2005), 'Dreamboy'(2005), 'Milan'(2004), 'Til There Was You'(2003), 'Dekada '70'(2002), '9 Mornings'(2002), 'Jologs'(2002), 'I Think I'm In Love'(2002), 'Bakit Di Totohanin'(2001), 'Mila'(2001), 'Kahit Isang Saglit'(2000), Pera O Bayong!'(2000), 'Lagarista'(2000), 'Esperanza: The Movie'(1999), 'Batang PX'(1997), and 'The Vizconde Massacre'(1991).
