Biography[edit]

Anderson was born on March 7, 1989 in Subic Bay, Zambales, Philippines. He is the son of Gerald Randy Anderson, Sr. and Evangeline Opsima. His father is an American instructor in the Philippine Navy who travels back and forth between the United States and Zambales while his mother is a Filipina businesswoman from General Santos City, Philippines. He also has a younger brother, Kenneth Anderson (Ken) and two older sisters from his mother's first marriage Jennifer and Darling. When he was three years old, he and his family moved to San Antonio, Texas, and then to Springfield, Missouri when he was six. Finally, at 14 years of age, his family moved back to General Santos City.

Anderson is multilingual, demonstrating oral fluency in both English and Tagalog through his work; he also has some proficiency in Cebuano. He finished his Elementary Studies in San Antonio, Texas and his High School degree in General Santos City, Philippines.

Career[edit]

Anderson was discovered by Joross Gamboa when Gamboa performed in Anderson's hometown. Gamboa introduced him to his manager, Jhun Reyes, who brought him to ABS-CBN for the first season of Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition. Anderson and the other housemates entered the Big Brother house on April 23, 2006. After 42 days, he was named Teen Third Big Placer on the show.

Six months later, Anderson and screen partner/then-girlfriend, actress Kim Chiu, appeared together on several ABS-CBN shows (including Love Spell and Aalog-Alog) and in the film First Day High. In 2007 Anderson and Chiu starred in their first primetime TV series, Sana Maulit Muli; in September of that year they appeared in their first feature film, I've Fallen For You, produced by Star Cinema. That year, he was the Best New Male TV Personality (for Sana Maulit Muli) at the 21st PMPC Star Awards and the 38th Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation Box Office Awards (with Chiu). In May 2008 Anderson and Chiu were cast in My Girl, an adaptation of the South Korean TV series.

In 2009, Anderson starred in the primetime drama series Tayong Dalawa, winning the Best Drama Actor award at the NSUU TV Awards; Anderson and Chiu were the Most Popular Loveteam for the third consecutive year at the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation Box Office Awards. In August of that year, he appeared in Agimat: Ang Mga Alamat ni Ramon Revilla:Tiagong Akyat.

The following year, Anderson starred with Chiu in the film Paano Na Kaya. He was cast in the ABS-CBN primetime drama Kung Tayo'y Magkakalayo, and appeared in Your Song Presents: Isla with his Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited former housemates. Anderson and Chiu teamed up again in October 2011 for the film Till My Heartaches End. That month, it was reported that the couple had ended their romantic relationship.

In 2011 Anderson first worked with Sarah Geronimo in a film collaboration with Star Cinema and Viva Films entitled Catch Me, I'm in Love (shown on March 23, 2011), and in October he returned in the primetime series Budoy (his first primetime television series without Chiu). He starred with Jessy Mendiola; Chiu had an adjacent time slot with her drama, My Binondo Girl with Xian Lim. In November 2011 Anderson made another film with Geronimo, Won't Last A Day Without You. He reunited in a movie with Chiu titled 24/7 in Love, Star Magic's ensemble film in view of the agency's 20th year anniversary.[1] He is starring as Miguel Dizon in the 2013 teleserye, Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin alongside Dawn Zulueta.

Personal life[edit]

Anderson enjoys basketball. When asked what he would do if he had not taken up acting, he said he would be a basketball player. In 2011, inspired by his role in Budoy, Anderson organized a charity basketball game benefiting special-needs children.

In 2013 Anderson joined PETA campaign to free Mali from Manila zoo and have her transferred to Boon Lott's Elephant Sanctuary. Mali is the only captive elephant in the Philippines where she has lived over 3 decades alone, in a tiny enclosure and in need of proper care.[2]
