Profile Bio Text
José Sixto Gonzales Dantes III, popularly known as Dingdong Dantes was born August 2 , 1980 in Quezon City. He is a model, host, director, television and film actor from the Philippines.
Dingdong first attended college at San Beda College and took up Marketing Management. He was kicked out from San Beda College and transferred at the Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU) as an Interdisciplinary Studies and Communication Arts major.
He first became popular as a child star appearing in several commercials. He was part of the male dance group Abztract. As an actor, he debuted on GMA Network`s youth-oriented show T.G.I.S. (Thank God It`s Sabado), afterwards embarking on a promising career in show business.
Dingdong Dantes began as a print and commercial model and appeared in a famous dairy product commercial when he was nine years old. He was then part of an all-male dance group called Abztract Dancers. By the time he was seventeen, Dantes made his first television appearance when he was introduced as one of the lead cast in the second season of GMA Network’s highly popular youth-oriented flick T.G.I.S. (Thank God It’s Sabado). His role as the dashing boy-next-door Iñaki was massively well received and contributed much to his growing popularity. Almost immediately, Dantes was already a growing sensation. His pairing with Antoinette Taus, whom he was romantically involved with, spun films like Honey My Love So Sweet and I`m Sorry My Love and other television outings including Anna Karenina. It wasn’t long before Taus left to pursue a film and recording career abroad, by that time, their relationship had ended and Dantes ventured as a solo artist.
In 2002, Dantes was paired with actress Tanya Garcia as they top-bill in GMA-7’s primetime soap opera series entitled Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga. Their pairing was received satisfactorily but the show raked meager ratings. Dantes and Garcia also headlined in another primetime romance-drama billing in 2003 entitle Twin Hearts. Dantes then took on several hosting stints and has emceed for Binibining Pilipinas Pageant in numerous occasions. His flair and spontaneity in the field eventually led him to be selected as host for GMA Network’s reality artist search, StarStruck in 2003 and has since hosted in the seasons that followed.
Aside from his television stints, Dantes also appeared in several chartbuster films including Magkapatid and Pangarap Ko Ang Ibigin Ka and has starred with big wigs like Sharon Cuneta , Christopher de Leon, Regine Velasquez and Judy Ann Santos .
Dantes hosts the suspense-thriller program Wag Kukurap, for which he also occasionally serves as director. He is well-known for his role as King Ybrahim in the Encantadia fantasy-themed television saga, where he co-stars with his on-screen and off-screen romantic interest, singer-actress Karylle. The couple also co-star in the 2006 film Moments of Love.
