Most of us know Robin Padilla as either the hot-headed action star or the mellowed-down, awesome actor that he became later in his career.

But for those who are unaware of it, the man’s political pedigree is also quite impressive.

On this Instagram post, the actor talks about his father, the late Roy Padilla Sr. who for a time served as Camarines Norte Governor.

Robin then hailed Carlos Roy Padilla (Roy Padilla Jr.) as a politiko who was “undefeated in all his political campaigns with exceptional organizational skill and acumen winning landslide victories”.

If he really puts his heart into it, we think Robin the actor can also become Robin the politiko.
