Manny Jacinto

Born in Manila, Philippines and raised in Richmond B.C, Manny Jacinto is becoming one of Canada’s top young performers to watch. An unlikely entertainer, the shy student went from completing a civil engineering degree to dancing in Hip Hop competitions. Manny found his passion for acting when he landed his first television role as the episodic character, Quon in the Primetime Emmy nominated series, Once Upon A Time. Later, Manny would be cast and appear alongside high profile actors including Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga (A&E’s Bates Motel), Golden Globe nominee Dennis Haysbert (FOX’s Backstrom), and Oscar® nominated actor Terrence Howard (FOX’s Wayward Pines). Manny’s rising talent became clear when he was offered the role of a supporting character in Lifetime’s most talked about feature The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story. Additional television credits include appearances on Supernatural (The CW), Rogue (DirecTV), The 100 (The CW), Rush (USA Network) and Cameron Crowe’s highly anticipated television series, Roadies.
