A lot of girls who grew up in the 90s probably had a crush on Baron Geisler, who was among the most popular heartthrobs of his generation. But aside from his façade that resembles the Prince Charming that we’ve seen in fairytales, he’s also admired because of his versatility as an artist.
As some of us probably looks forward on seeing him again on television and on the big screen, let’s look back on his journey as a teen heartthrob in this throwback feature!
Born on June 5, 1982 to a Filipina mom and a German-American dad, Baron entered show business when he was 12 years old by being cast in the phenomenal youth-oriented program Ang TV in 1994. Since then, he was considered among ABS-CBN’s fast-rising homegrown talents and eventually became a member of its elite Star Circle Batch 5, alongside John Lloyd Cruz, Serena Dalrymple, Shaina Magdayao, Marc Solis, and Thou Reyes to name a few.
He also comprised the teen boy trio “Koolits” with John Lloyd and Marc, and got paired with Kristine Hermosa in a movie and with Jodi Sta. Maria in the hit youth-oriented series Tabing Ilog, wherein he played the iconic role of Fonzy.
Baron went on to appear in several Kapamilya series, such as It Might Be You (2003), Vietnam Rose (2005), Maging Sino Ka Man (2006), Tayong Dalawa (2009), May Bukas Pa (2009), Noah (2010), Mars Ravelo’s Dyesebel (2014), and FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano (2015, 2019). He as well starred in few episodes of Maalaala Mo Kaya and bagged the Best Single Performance of an Actor accolade from the 19th PMPC Star Awards in 2005 for his remarkable portrayal in the “Trolley (Pasan)” episode.
At the same time, we were also astounded by his impressive acting prowess in “Ang TV the Movie: The Adarna Adventure” (1996), “Oo Na, Mahal Na Kung Mahal” (1999), “Anak” (2000), “Jologs” (2002), “Wag Kang Lilingon” (2006), “Supahpapalicious” (2008), “Noy” (2010), and “Just the 3 of Us” (2016).
His personal and showbiz life may be controversial in the past decade, but the 39-year-old actor has already been a changed man for years now after “graduating” from rehabilitation and meeting his now wife Jamie Evangelista in 2018. Besides, he’s also been active in acting again by starring in a number of movies in the recent years.
