In the year 2013, he was overwhelmingly elected for a Congressional Seat representing the newly created Fifth District of Quezon City.

Biography and Career[edit]

Alfred Vargas was born on October 24, 1981 in San Juan City. He is the son of Alfredo Vargas, Jr and Susana Dumlao Vargas.

Vargas graduated in A.B. Management Economics in Ateneo de Manila University. For his graduate studies, he went to the University of the Philippines Diliman to pursue a Masters degree in Public Administration. He began his career as a member of ABS-CBN Star Magic (formerly Star Circle) acting workshop Batch 10. From there, he had his TV role in the drama soap opera, Pangako Sa'yo, from the same network. But this Ateneo de Manila graduate was acting in theatre long before the talent scouts lured him into television.

His breakthrough role came in the film Bridal Shower. After this, Vargas moved to the GMA Network where he featured in three shows in Philippine television: the daytime drama series, Daisy Siete, the fantasy series, Encantadia (as Aquil), and its prequel series Etheria (as Amarro, Aquil's father).

He played the leading role on the GMA daytime series Muli, opposite the Malaysian actress Carrie Lee and Marian Rivera as well as being part of the cast of Impostora in 2007. In 2008, he worked again with Marian Rivera in Dyesebel. He is also part of the upcoming installment of Una Kang Naging Akin co-starring Angelika dela Cruz, in which he plays "Ronnie".

His most recent movie projects include Status: Single and When I Met U. He is set to do an indie film, Amamanhig. In 2009, he appeared in All About Eve where he is reunited with his Impostora castmates Sunshine Dizon, Iza Calzado, and Mark Anthony Fernandez. He then made a villainous turn when he played the pirate captain Lima Wong in Zorro. He went on to play "Gabriel" in Darna but had to leave the series as he applied for candidacy for councilor.

In 2010 Alfred Vargas was reappearing in "Darna", becoming a successful reporter.

In December 2010 he moved from the GMA-7 network to ABS-CBN and did projects for ABS-CBN, without contract as he is a public servant and cannot be exclusive.

Politics[edit]

In Quezon City local elections for District 2 on May 11, 2010, he was elected city councilor, with the second-highest number of votes in the district which the 1st place is the former news anchor and incumbent councilor and Congressman-elect Winston Castelo's wife Precious Hipolito-Castelo and along also actor-comedianne Roderick Paulate.[2]

Vargas won for the Congress in 2013, due to reapportioning from 2nd district to newly created 5th district of Quezon City which consist of whole Novaliches area, under the administration (LP/NP/NPC/NUP) coalition. His opponent is former old 2nd district Representatives Annie Rosa Susano (of Lakas) and Dante Liban (of the United Nationalist Alliance).[3]
