Corazón is the devout wife of the cabeza, Rafael Dacanay and the mother of rebellious Joaquinto.
Rio Locsin has been acting since 1978 when her mother, a former starlet under contract with Premiere Pictures, pressed her into show business. She was discovered by a family friend, Dr. Rey Dela Cruz, when she was just 14 years old. Because of her young age, they had to wait two years before she was formally launched in the movie, Disgrasyada (“Disgraced”), directed by Elwood Perez under Regal Films. The film stirred a great deal of controversy because Rio was only 16, and the movie was labeled as “too sensual”. Disgrasyada is considered to have started the “Bold Movie” trend in Philippine cinema.
Locsin continued to work in the genre, but eventually left those films behind when she began to work on the stage and with the Philippines finest film directors. Some of these signature Filipino films are Manila by Night/City After Dark by Ishmael Bernal and Ina, Kapatid, Anak (“Mother, Sister, Daughter”) by Lino Brocka. These movies earned her several acting nominations by the critics.
She has appeared in about 80 films and is a staple player in Philippine soap operas. She has played Joel Torre’s wife more than a few times.
