Jane Oineza (birthname Elizabeth Jane Urbano Oineza, born on July 22, 1996) is a Filipina actress. Oineza's career began at the age of four while appearing in television commercials and the primetime drama Sa Dulo Ng Walang Hanggan (2001–2003). She came to prominence as a child star on Goin' Bulilit (2005–2008) and Kung Fu Kids (2008). In 2013, she gained an international award and Emmy nomination for her portrayal in Maalaala Mo Kaya's Manika after supporting roles in Maria la del Barrio (2011), Oka2kat (2012), and Muling Buksan Ang Puso (2013). In 2014, Oineza joined Pinoy Big Brother: All In as a housemate. She is a talent of Star Magic.
Oineza was born in the town of Bani, and lived with her parents along the Ilocos region, until she was scouted to join the entertainment industry. The oldest among three siblings, she is multilingual, fluent in Tagalog, English, and with some proficiency in Ilokano. Her father, Erwin, who came from a long lineage of Ilocandia ancestry, was a businessman, and her mother, Jen (née Urbano), who is of Filipino-Spanish descent, held a succession of office jobs. They both resigned from their lines of work to assist their daughters’ career and moved from the provinces to reside in Pasig and later Quezon City. As a result of insufficient funds when she did not receive acting opportunities, her family lived off financially unstable. Due to career, she has also been in intermittent home-study since age five. Until now, Oineza is acknowledged as the breadwinner of her household, with her mother recognizing her daughter's efforts in an interview: “very dedicated in everything she does”.
Starting at the age of four, Oineza's career began when she appeared in television commercials for various product brands. A talent manager urged her to venture into acting. She made her television debut in the primetime drama Sa Dulo Ng Walang Hanggan (2001–2003). In 2002, she had her first film role as a Powerpuff Girl in Bakit Papa?, headlined by the SexBomb Girls, from their hit song with the same name. Oineza then joined the cast of Sana'y Wala Nang Wakas (2003–2004) playing the role of young Ara to Kristine Hermosa, and Marina (2004) as young Marina to Claudine Barretto. She came to prominence as a child star on popular kiddie gag show, Goin' Bulilit (2005–2008) as herself and live-action fantasy series Kung Fu Kids (2008) as Moira, one of seven kids holding different personalities to be united by a prophecy. Since then, Jane has been a staple of local soap operas, appearing in Prinsesa ng Banyera, Ligaw na Bulaklak, Oka Tokat, Maria la del Barrio and featured multiple guestings on drama anthology series Maalaala Mo Kaya and Wansapanataym. She also starred in the movies Miss You Like Crazy, I Do (2010) and psychological horror film Amorosa (2012).
In 2013, Oineza gained international recognition for her controversial role in Maalaala Mo Kaya’s Manika (lit. Doll) (2012); with a Best Actress - Finalist Medal at the prestigious New York Festivals, Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Single Drama nomination at the Golden Screen Awards, and Best Drama nomination at the International Emmy Awards. Noted to be her first-starring role on TV, Doll broke barriers as one of the most-talked about episodes of the MMK series, reaching a 40% national viewer rating via Kantar Media/TNS. Later that year, she was relaunched as part of Star Magic 2013. Separately, she appeared in another Maalaala Mo Kaya episode entitled Bimpo where she played a young girl with cerebral palsy. Her portrayal garnered her a second nod for Best Single Performance by an Actress at the 27th PMPC Star Awards for Television alongside acclaimed veteran Nora Aunor.
In 2014, Jane joined Pinoy Big Brother: All In as a housemate. Rumored to be groomed as ABS CBN's next leading lady, she is pending consideration to star as Esperanza in the 2015 remake of the teleserye classic, Esperanza.
