Robinhood Ferdinand Cariño Padilla (born November 23, 1969)[1] better known by his stage name Robin Padilla is a Filipino film director, screenwriter, producer, martial artist and actor. Padilla is both a matinee idol and cultural icon; he is sometimes referred to as "James Dean"[3] and dubbed as "Bad Boy" of the Philippine Cinema; as he portrayed 'protagonist gangster roles' in his films Anak ni Baby Ama, Grease Gun Gang, Bad Boy 1 & Bad Boy 2. Padilla is active in television series program. He played important roles in Asian Treasures, Joaquin Bordado, Totoy Bato, Guns and Roses, and Toda Max.

Both acting and the showbiz industry are not new to Padilla. He came from a brood of talent, performer, and political family. His father Roy Padilla, who was a film director, served as vice-governor of Camarines Norte in 1970s and assemblyman in 1980s;[4] while his mother was an actress,[1] and three of his siblings Rustom, Rommel and Royette are actors.



Padilla's movies with Sharon Cuneta in Maging Sino Ka Man, and Vina Morales in Ang Utol Kong Hoodlum series were blockbuster hits.[5] He figured accidents while filming Tulak ng Bibíg, Kabig ng Dibdíb when he was trapped inside a speeding car that flew into the air, flipped and landed on its roof.[5] Padilla's worst accident was when a blasting scene for Utol Kong Hoodlum burned him literally, which left scars around his tummy and arms.[6]

In 2009, Padilla did Sundo of Viva Films, before, he was opted out of his exclusive contract that allows him do movies for other film outfits including Star Cinema Productions, FLT Films, Millennium Cinema and GMA Films. On the same year he also did the title role of "Totoy Bato", which was an adaptation from a novel by Carlo J. Caparas.

Padilla crossed over movie film to television through the ABS-CBN comedy show Pwedeng-Pwede. He starred in the daily action-drama series, Basta't Kasama Kita. In 2005, he did two movies: the horror thriller Kulimlim and the comedy "La Visa Loca". He received Best Actor honors in the 2006 Urian Awards.

Padilla had transferred to GMA Network, after his contract with ABS-CBN, where he starred in the TV series Asian Treasures. He has also signed a two film contract under GMA Network's film outfit GMA Films; first was Till I Met You, the second one was the horror-suspense Sundo.

In 2010, Padilla returns to ABS-CBN, his projects with the network includes the sitcom TodaMax which was launched in November 2011 aired over ABS-CBN 2, this was Padilla's second over-all sitcom his last one with Puwedeng Puwede with his former co-star the late comedian Redford White.

In 2010, due to Willie Revillame's abrupt transfer to TV-5 Padilla temporarily hosted the noontime show Wowowee, and later hosted the show Pilipinas Win na Win which replaced Wowowee together with Kris Aquino.[citation needed]


Padilla is an anti-malaria advocate since 2004; he appealed for media support for his cause against the disease in the press briefing of Department of Health's 'Movement Against Malaria.' As a MAM spokesperson, he engaged television networks in the campaign for the use of mosquito nets.[7][8]

Padilla flew to Turkey to attend a conference concerning the Liwanag ng Kapayapaan Foundation,[when?][citation needed] a free preschool he built for Muslim children in Quezon City, which opened in 2007. On September 15, 2007 he donated 2.5 million Philippine pesos to the Muay Association of the Philippines.
