Ronnie Lazaro is one this industry’s eminent character actors with notable roles in films such as Oro, Plata, Mata; Boatman: Misteryo sa Tuwa; Yanggaw; and most recently Heneral Luna.
Unknown to many, Ronnie is also a musician.
In his youth, the Ang Probinsyano actor was a Glee Club member and a rock-band front man.
While this passion didn’t propel into a musical career, the promise was later on transferred to his handsome unico hijo Gabriel, Ronnie’s only son with his Spanish wife Dolores “Lola” Pizarro.
The 18-year-old musician fell in love with music through his father’s old guitar.
He told YES! Magazine, “I picked up the guitar when I was little, and then, I just played anything.
“It was, like, the most amazing thing—to be able to create sound, and then claim that sound to be yours.”
His music is inspired by a mix of grunge, funk, jazz, and blues.
Admittedly, Gabriel has no keen interests in acting, but Ronnie doesn’t oblige him either way.
Read more about Gabriel and his love for music in the April issue of YES! magazine.
