Juan Miguel de Guzman (born September 9, 1988), popularly known by his screen name JM De Guzman, is a Filipino actor.
Life and career
JM de Guzman started his career as a print and TVC model. He was a cast in Ang TV 2 (as JM "Butik" De Guzman), where his batch mates include Sarah Geronimo, Shaina Magdayao and Denise Laurel. During his elementary and high school years, he studied at Lourdes School Quezon City.
In 2005, he was accepted at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, where took up Certificate in Theater Arts, majoring in Performance Studies. He apprenticed as an actor and production staff under the university's college-based theater group, Dulaang UP.
In 2006, he joined the UP Wrestling Club and eventually became its president and decorated athlete. He won medals in various competitions sanctioned by the Wrestling Association of the Philippines, wherein he represented the UP Wrestling Club or the Quezon City Wrestling Team. In 2007, he won a silver medal for Quezon City during the Philippine Olympic Festival – National Capital Region qualifying round.
He also competed in amateur mixed martial arts (MMA) as representative of S.P.R.A.W.L. - MMA Team. He logged not an 1-1 fight record: he lost his match in the 2007 URCC University and won in the 2009 S.P.R.A.W.L and BRAWL amateur MMA event.
He was also elected as the Deputy Grand Triskelion of the Tau Gamma Phi fraternity, UP Diliman chapter.
De Guzman auditioned and was later cast in the 2009 Cinemalaya film Last Supper Number 3. The independent film was where Direk Lauren Dyogi, business unit head of ABS-CBN, found him and asked to audition for Midnight Phantom. He passed the audition and starred as the best friend of Rafael Rosell who plays the title role.
His biggest break so far is playing the lead role as Gabriel Maglayon, originally played by actor Rico Yan, in ABS-CBN's 2011 remake of Mula Sa Puso. Upon getting the role, De Guzman has proven that he is one of the most-promising young actors these days, as he also present a very good chemistry with the cast, especially with Lauren Young, who plays Via Pereira, his character's love interest in the series.
