Fernando Poe Jr.
fernando-poe➢ The late Fernando Poe Jr or FPJ was born Ronald Allan Kelley Poe on August 20, 1939 in Manila Philippines. Known as the Action King, Poe was an icon in the Philippine cinema considered to be one of its greatest actors. He starred in critically-acclaimed films like Mga Alabok ng Lupa (1967), Asedillo (1971), Durugin si Totoy Bato, Umpisahan Mo, Tatapusin Ko (1983), and Muslim Magnum .357 (1987). FPJ also popularized the cult-classic Ang Panday film series, Kahit Konting Pagtingin, Dito sa Pitong Gatang, Aguila, Ang Probinsyano, Iyo ang Tondo kanya ang Cavite (1986), and Ang Dalubhasa.

Poe started as a messenger boy in the film industry after he dropped-out from high school to support his family when his father died. Later on, he was given roles as actor and stuntman in some movies. His first lead role came in Anak ni Palaris (Son of Palaris) when he was 14. However, it was in the movie Lo Waist Gang where his star shined. He also shared lead role in international film The Ravagers. As his cult-following grew, he was later named the “King of Philippine Movies” or shortened as Da King or Action King. He had also accumulated the majority of Best Actor accolades in the history of FAMAS Awards.

He also dabbled in film direction under the name Ronwaldo Reyes. He directed nine films in all. Poe later founded FPJ Productions in 1961. Posthumuosly, he received the National Artist of the Philippines for Film award from former President Benigno Aquino III on July 20, 2012.

Politics:
Poe is unofficially the President of the Republic of the Philippines to a majority of Filipino voters. He ran for President in the 2004 Presidential elections but lost to Gloria Macapagal Arroyo via a slim margin of votes. However, it was later revealed that massive cheating was conducted in the ARMM and Mindanao region (remember the Hello Garci scandal?), particularly Maguindanao (a vote-rich territory), where he had very few votes. The same happened in Pangasinan province. Poe hailed from Pangasinan and was too popular in the Mindanao region to have had minimal votes. The NAMFREL quick-count showed a 34.3% vs. 56.5% in favor of Poe in the ARMM, but the final COMELEC canvass favored Arroyo with a 62% vs. 31% final tally. It was prima facie evidence of electoral cheating in the ARMM. As of present time, no action has been iniated by the PET or the SC to grant the presidency to the late actor posthumously.
Personal Life:
FPJ was born to a Filipino-Spanish father, former actor Fernando Poe Sr., and to an Irish-American mother Elizabeth “Bessie” Kelly. The name Poe was originally Pou, from FPJ’s Castillan grandfather.

He studied primary school in San Beda College, then took-up secondary school in San Sebastian College. He later enrolled in Mapua Institute of Technology and University of the East.

Fernado Poe married his on-screen partner Susan Roces in 1968. They also adopted a daughter, Grace Poe, who later became a Philippine Senator. Poe also had a son Ronian Poe (DJ and tattoo artist) with actress Anna Marin, and daughter Lovi Poe (multi-awarded actress), from former model-actress Rowena Moran.

Fernando Poe Jr passed-away on December 14, 2004 due to stroke or (scientifically) Cerebral Thrombosis with multiple organ failure.

  • Parents:
  • Fernando Poe Sr.
  • Elizabeth "Bessie" Kelly
