Jiro Manio (born as Jirō Katakura (片倉次郎 Katakura Jirō?, 9 May 1992), is a Filipino actor at ABS-CBN. He started acting at a very young age and became the youngest multi-awarded actor of his generation.
Life and career
He was born with a Japanese father Yusuke Katakura (片倉 裕介?) and Filipina mother Joylene Santos (who died in August 2007). He was raised by his grandfather and had a younger brother named Anjo Santos.
Manio graduated from San Eric Pineda School and plans to study HRM in culinary studies at the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. He recently starred in digital film “Tambolista (Drumbeat)” under Cinema One, and his latest film was “Ang Tanging Ina Niyong Lahat” with Ai-Ai de las Alas. In 2004, he won the Best Actor and Gaward Urian plus Best Child Actor at Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences Award for the movie “Magnifico.” On May 18, 2011, news program TV Patrol confirmed that Jiro underwent a rehab for drug addiction.
He became a drug addict and fathered two children out of wedlock. His acting career ground to a halt as his life spiraled out of control. He then entered a drug rehabilitation facility after realizing that he was throwing his life away. With the encouragement of his father, Andrew, and his manager, “Magnifico” director Maryo J. Delos Reyes, he committed himself to the Home Care rehabilitation center, where he underwent therapy for almost a year. After the initial phase of his rehabilitation, Home Care allowed him to finish his senior year of high school.
