Diego Loyzaga Says He Wants To Be Like Action Star Dad Cesar Montano

DIEGO LOYZAGA – Hunk actor Diego Loyzaga admitted he wanted to be like his action star dad Cesar Montano.

Born on May 21, 1995, in San Juan City, Metro Manila, Philippines, Diego Loyzaga is a Filipino actor and model. He is the offspring of the well-known actors Cesar Montano and Teresa Loyzaga.

Diego made his mark in the entertainment industry, gaining acclaim for his acting skills. He has made appearances in various Philippine TV programs and movies, securing noteworthy roles in teleseryes like “Pangako Sa ‘Yo,” “Growing Up,” and “Los Bastardos.”


Diego Loyzaga became emotional as he talked about his relationship with his father, Cesar Montano, in Fast Talk with Boy Abunda. Now a father himself, Diego shared his experiences in the talk show episode this Friday, marking his first TV interview in many years.

During the interview, TV host Boy Abunda asked Diego what it was like being the child of a famous action star.

“Gaano kahirap ‘yung anak ka ni Cesar? Alam mo ‘yun? You take on a role, expectations are high. How do you survive that?”  Abunda asked.

Diego answered, “I think, Tito Boy, for the earlier part of my career, I was really trying to you know? Fill those shoes.”

He added, “I was trying talaga to be more like him. Then, I think, recently, parang kumalas na rin ako e. I’m just trying to be Diego. I know, they’re very large shoes to fill, kaya hindi ko na pipilitin ang sarili ko na maging isang Cesar Montano. Gusto ko na lang maging isang Diego Loyzaga.

“Of course, I wanna achieve ‘yung mga na-achieve niya sa career niya, but one day at a time.”

After this, Boy asked again, “Sinasabihan ka ba niya ng ‘Good job’ or wala talaga or sinasabihan ka niya ng, ‘I like the way you attack that.’ May mga pagkakataon na ganun?”

Diego shared that he really cried when Cesar praised him for their confrontation scene in a project. He said, “Ang una namin kasing naging proyekto na magkasama kami, ‘yung scene namin talaga is magkaaway, parang in a way medyo magkaaway, nagsusumbatan kami. So, I treated it as if I were just talking to my dad, and that was the first time na sinabihan niya ako na, ‘I like that.’ Hindi ako iyakin na tao, pero naiyak ako dun.”

“Everyone knows naman my story, for the people who don’t, I didn’t grow up naman with my dad. Not blaming him, not throwing shade on my father. It’s just that those are the circumstances, and to get affirmation from your dad, ang sarap sa pakiramdam.”

At present, Diego mentioned that his relationship with Cesar is good. In fact, they often talk about his daughter, Hailey.
