RJ Padilla, 24, is from the Padilla clan of actors. He is the half brother of teen star Daniel Padilla and nephew of action star Robin Padilla and the controversial Bebe Gandanghari.
RJ first thought of entering show business when he was in elementary/primary school but was forced to set aside his plans when his parents disapproved of the idea. RJ’s parents, especially his father Rommel, wanted him to finish his studies first so he would a have a “fall back” in case he won’t find luck in the showbiz industry. Now RJ is ready for the spotlight and in fact, he is part of the morning light-drama series, “With A Smile.”
