Edu Manzano is happy for his son, Luis Manzano, because he was able to achieve success in his career with the help from him or his mother, Star For All Seasons Vilma Santos.
Luis started as at TV VJ, then later on became a TV host. He also did several comedy movies, as well as a drama film with his mother and John Lloyd Cruz.
Luis is also active in print ads and TV commercials.
Edu said his decision to not allow Luis to enter showbiz until he finished college is the right one because his level of maturity helped him make the right choices in the industry. He never once heard Luis regret his move to enter showbiz. He can also see that his son is always focused on his projects.
Luis finished Hotel and Restaurant Institution Management at the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde.
In spite of the fact that Luis has a love life, he is still able to focus on his job. Luis is in a relationship with actress Angel Locsin.
Edu explained that a lot of actors get too distracted because of their relationships. Luckily, Angel is a “fine actress” while Luis is also an “equally-fine actor.” He knows they will be around for a while.
Asked if he’s ready to see Angel as a daughter-in-law because both of them said they are already talking about settling down, Edu said the decision is up to them. The worst thing any parent can do is to intervene in his child’s life.
Edu shared that his house is always open for Angel. Every Sunday, him and his children try to have dinner, and he encourages them to bring their girlfriends/boyfriends.
He will always support Luis with whatever he wants. He doesn’t need to encourage his son to get married because he can see that they are already a perfect couple.
“Ang dami na nilang pinagdaanan, alam niyo naman ang lahat ng kuwento tungkol diyan, and I think, I’ll be the happiest if they end up together.”
As a father, he will always be after Luis’ happiness.
