During the barangay elections on October 25, 2010, Revilla ran as Barangay Captain of Panapan VII in Bacoor, Cavite and was elected. He later became the President of the Association of Barangay Captains in Cavite, which automatically landed him a seat as an ex-officio board member in the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (Provincial Council).

He ran as vice-governor in the 2013 elections, with Governor Jonvic Remulla as his running mate. Together, they beat the rival tandem of Ronald Jay Lacson, son of Senator Panfilo Lacson, and 3rd District Representative Ayong Maliksi, respectively. He is the youngest vice governor elected in the history of the Philippines, surpassing the record made by former Senator Benigno Aquino, Jr. when he was elected to the same post in Tarlac in 1959.[2]

Entertainment career[edit]

He is notable for playing the role of Ramon Salcedo in the 2008 TV series remake of Kaputol ng Isang Awit. Revilla originally signed to GMA Network but later transferred to its rival network ABS-CBN. In 2009, he took the lead role in the TV series remake of Pepeng Agimat, which was originally topbilled by his grandfather Ramon Revilla Sr.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Revilla has one son with Grace Adriano, daughter of actress Rosanna Roces, named Jose Gabriel Bautista (born January 13, 2006).[4]

Alleged shooting attempt[edit]

On February 28, 2015, Vice Governor Revilla was cleaning his Glock semi-automatic pistol when he sustained an accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound at his father's residence in Ayala Alabang and was rushed to the Asian Hospital and Medical Center in Muntinlupa City. Revilla is currently under observation.[5] According to his mother's talent manager, Lolit Solis, Revilla had been suffering from depression.[6] Last March 28, he went back to work in his office. He said in an interview with Startalk (Philippine television show) that it was a "simple, pure accident."
