When maverick filmmaker Eduardo Roy Jr. saw promising young actor Jun-Jun Quintana, he knew right away that he had his perfect Uno, the most important male character for his Cinemalaya New Breed entry about the life and loves of the transexuals and the transgenders, Quick Change.
“Jun-Jun is a perfect fit for the role,” enthused Roy adding,” and he delivered effortlessly.”
Patient and persevering in the crazy showbiz jungle, Jun-Jun Q’s acting potential was first noticed in Adolfo Alix’s Haruo, the Young Critics Circle Best Film of 2012. Critics wrote glowingly of Jun-Jun’s felt performance.
Recently, Jun-Jun played the lead role in the stage play Imbisibol, one of the more successful one-act plays of the Virgin Labfest at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
Up for him is another lead role for the coming CinemaOne Originals Independent Film Festival in November and the green light has been turned on for his first ever soap opera, Hanggang Kailan Kita Mamahalin for ABS-CBN.
