Abel Estanislao (born May 19, 1995, in Marikina City, Philippines) is a Filipino actor and model.


Abel Estanislao started his acting career when he landed the role of Jose Vicente "JV" Cortez in the youth oriented series of GMA Network called Teen Gen where he was paired with Sunyee Maluche, also a new comer.[1] Since then, he has appeared in a number of television dramas with his home network, GMA7.

It has been said that Estanislao's looks have a resemblance to veteran Filipino actor Ping Medina. Estanislao is the nephew of the late actor Jay Ilagan, husband of actress Amy Austria; and he is also the distant relative of actors Janno Gibbs and Dexter Doria.[2]

In 2014, Estanislao became a member of musical trio 3logy, along with his Teen Gen co-star and best friend Jeric Gonzales and Jak Roberto. Their first song is the revival of Jolina Magdangal's hit Maybe It's You.[3][4]
