Early life and education

John Arcilla was born in Quezon City, Philippines to Filipino parents, Dominador Gil Alemania Arcilla and Eustaquia Gonzales, a descendant of President Manuel L. Quezon. Arcilla and his family moved to his mother's hometown in Baler, Aurora due to the declaration of martial law in 1972. Arcilla began to show interest in acting at age 7.[6][7][8][9]

He was a member of the community-based Philippine Educational Theater Association-Metropolitan Teen Theater League (PETA-MTTL).[10] In 1986 he graduated from Saint Joseph's College of Quezon City (SJCQC).[6] He was also an acting scholar of the Actors Workshop Foundation under Laurice Guillen, Johnny Delgado, and Leo Martinez from 1987 to 1990.[11]

Career

1988–1996: Theater debut and early television work

Arcilla joined Dulaang Unibersidad ng Pilipinas in 1988 and was a member until 1989. There, he was trained by stage director and National Artist for Theater, Tony Mabesa. From 1989 to 1990, Arcilla worked as a casting director for Foote, Cone & Belding.[12]

From 1991 to 1997, Arcilla was a resident actor and senior member of Tanghalang Pilipino's Actor Company, the resident theater of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.[13] At the Cultural Center, he played lead roles in several productions, including Orosman and Zafira, Walang Sugat, and Ryan Cayabyab's Rizal musical trilogy: El Filibusterismo in 1993, Noli Me Tángere in 1995, and Illustrado in 1996.[14][11] Arcilla was also part of the main cast of Rama at Sita, a 1999 Filipino musical adapted from the Indian epic Ramayana. In 2000, Arcilla became a guest actor for Repertory Philippines and played Valentin in Kiss of the Spider Woman.[15][16]

Arcilla has also been in various television commercials for brands including Tide and Gold Eagle, and companies such as National Steel Corporation and Development Bank of the Philippines. Arcilla gained exposure through a 1994 TV commercial for Purefoods with the slogan "Coffee na lang, dear" ("Just coffee, dear"), which led to his involvement in more projects outside theater.[17][11]

Arcilla appeared in various television shows in 1987, including the variety show Goin' Bananas as a "gag artist", as well as in the drama anthologies Lovingly Yours, Helen and Star Drama Theater Presents.[18]

1993–2009: Career expansion and recognition

One of Arcilla's early film appearances was as a photojournalist covering the release of political detainees in Lino Brocka's Orapronobis (Fight for Us, 1989). Arcilla had a bigger role in Raymond Red's first full-length feature, Bayani in 1992. Arcilla played General Mariano Noriel, who was a member of the War Council that oversaw Andrés Bonifacio's case in 1897.

In Sakay (1993), Arcilla played General Leon Villafuerte, the revolutionary chief of staff in Macario Sakay's Tagalog Republic. Arcilla's film break was in Sa 'Yo Lamang (1995), where he played Hector, the loving elder brother of Andrew (played by Richard Gomez). Arcilla won Best Actor at the 1996 Manila Film Festival for his role as Lino in the film Mulanay. A year later, he starred in Ligaya ang Itawag Mo sa Akin and won a Best Supporting Actor Award at the Gawad Urian.
