name: Juan Carlos Cuenca

Although Jake Cuenca started as a GMA Artist Center talent and was launched via Click, he was really noticed when he played the role of Kahlil in 'Encantadia' the son of Amihan (Iza Calzado) and Ibarro (Dingdong Dantes).

In 2006 he transferred to GMA Network's rival ABS-CBN, where he was launched as a an addition to Coverboys, an all-male group composed of Sam Milby, Zanjoe Marudo, Rafael Rosell, Victor Basa and John Lloyd Cruz.

Jake grew up in San Jose, California and the middle child in a brood of three. His career in the Philippines began when he was discovered by a talent scout for Cosmo Modeling Agency at the age of nine. Soon after, he made several television and commercials including endorsements for Safeguard, Coke and Globe Telecom.

By the time he was fourteen, Jake was taken under the wing of star makers, Neil de Guia and Douglas Quijano. In 2003, he auditioned for GMA Network’s highly successful youth program, Click, where he was included as one of the cast. His stint in the show contributed much to his growing popularity. When the show was defunct, Cuenca began portraying varied roles and was cast in several television outings including Hanggang Kailan, Forever In My Heart and Love to Love.

His career heightened in 2005 when he became part of the fantasy series, Encantadia, playing Dingdong Dantes's and Karylle’s invincible heir, Kahlil. He also appeared in the ninth season of Love to Love entitled Miss Match where he was paired with reality show winner and young actress Jennylyn Mercado.

He starred as one of the wizards in the fantasy-themed television series Majika. Jake, along with fellow male stars hailing from successful telefantasya's, was featured in the second issue of X-ray Magazine where he sheds off his boy-next door charm for a much more provocative and mature take on his image.

Jake Cuenca is now in the Kapamilya Network ABS-CBN after his contract with GMA-7 expired. In fact, he became a certified true Kapamilya when he appeared in the ABS-CBN 2006 Christmas Station ID entitled "Angat ang Ligaya ng Pasko".

Jake was part of the cast of one of ABS-CBN's highest rating soap opera entitled "Sana Maulit Muli" which garnered 36.1% nationwide ratings. The series was topbilled by Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson and was first aired on January 8, 2007. He was also in a Lovespell Episode called "Sweet Sixty", starring Sarah Geronimo, Oyo Boy Sotto, and Roxanne Guinoo. Roxanne Guinoo became his girlfriend.

Jake got a big break in his career when he and supposedly ex-girlfriend Roxanne Guinoo were given the chance to play the lead roles in the well-received 2007 TV series Sineserye Presents: Natutulog Ba Ang Diyos?. He was also a part of the fantaserye Mars Ravelo's Lastikman with Roxanne Guinoo, Vhong Navarro and Iya Villania. They played characters involved in a love quadrangle (square). He was removed from the sitcom That's My Doc starring Aga Muhlach to concentrate on the action-packed series Palos.

Bangs Garcia was supposed to be the leading lady of Jake in Palos, but due to public-demand, the character of Roxanne Guinoo, Anna, was resurrected after initially shown to have died during the early part of the show. Many felt that this was because the Jake-Bangs tandem did not have enough on-screen chemistry.

Jake admitted in one of the episodes of the TV talk show, Boy & Kris, that he has a framed picture of Roxanne in his bedroom. He also admitted that Roxanne had already met his parents. The couple call each other 'B' short for baby, detailed in Deal Or No Deal with Kris Aquino. As of May 2008, Jake and Roxanne have announced that they are no longer together.
