Jill started out doing television commercials and has appeared in several
commercials in the Philippines for Unilab, Splash, Smart Communications
and Western Union. After a year of being a commercial model, she
decided to challenge and explore her acting capabilities by doing
independent films like Romeo at Juliet (by Adolfo Alix, Jr.), Mayohan (by
Dan Villegas), The Grave Bandits (by Tyrone Acierto) and Marinduque
(by Rommel Luna and Justin Santos).
Working with DJ was an experience I will cherish forever. He is such a
warm and compassionate person as well as considerate and one of the
most down-to-earth people I know. Not only does he make you feel
comfortable when filming scenes, he also cracks up both the cast and
crew with his witty jokes between takes. Working with him was also a
learning experience for me. Thus, he helped me grow as an actor and
as a person. I feel lucky and I am truly honored to have been given the
opportunity to work closely with him.
Jill was born and raised in Metro Manila, Philippines. She is a reflection
of the pure Filipina beauty. Graduating from the University of the
Philippines with a degree in business management, Jill did not let her
lack of background about acting and film get in the way for her to pursue
her greatest passion. She attended workshops under Dulaang UP
(facilitated by Professor Tony Mabesa) and ABS-CBN Star Magic
(facilitated by Director Rahyan Carlos).
