Jay Ilagan (January 20, 1953 – February 3, 1992) was a Filipino actor. He hosted Stop, Look and Listen and starred in My Son, My Son and Going Bananas, and starred and participated in a number of movies.
Born Julius Abad Ilagan on January 20, 1953, his good looks eventually made him a matinee idol, starring in the films Maruja (1967), Tubog Sa Ginto(1970), Pinoy Crazy Boys (1974), and Hinog Sa Pilit. And because the looks came with deep talent, Jay survived the transition from teen star to adult actor - winning a Gawad Urian Best Supporting Actor trophy in 1982 for the movie, Kisapmata, another Gawad Urian Best Actor in 1985 for his role in Sister Stella L, and 1988 FAMAS and Film Academy of the Philippines Best Actor for his acting in Maging Akin Ka Lamang.
His acting was not confined to drama.
The son of Sampaguita star Corazon Noble and director Angel Esmeralda started out as a child actor, originally using "Angel" as his screenname. He was married to fellow actor, Hilda Koronel, they will eventually separate, and he and another fellow actor Amy Austria would live-in together. Jay had remained with Amy until his sudden death on February 3, 1992. On that fateful night in Quezon City, Jay lost control of his motorcycle and skidded to his death. Reports claimed that the actor was not wearing a protective helmet. He was 38.
