José Rizalino "Joel" de León Torre[1] (born June 19, 1961) is a Filipino actor and producer who is best known for his numerous films such as the biographical film José Rizal (1998), crime thriller film On the Job (2013) and the historical drama Amigo (2010), with the latter winning him the Best Actor Award at the 17th Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival.[2][3][4][5] In television, Torre usually plays as a character actor

Torre studied at the University of St. La Salle in Bacolod, Philippines. The Dr. Pablo O. Torre Memorial Hospital of Bacolod City was named in honor of Torre's uncle.


Early career[]

At age seven, Torre was a member of the Bacolod-based Masskara theater group ran by director Peque Gallaga, where his passion for acting started. He was the youngest member in the group which composed of 13 people. He then played a small role in Lino Brocka's Gumising ka, Maruja which was shot in Bacolod in 1978. A few years later, Gallaga tasked Torre to play a role for his 1982 film Oro, Plata, Mata.[6][7]

Personal life[]

Torre's middle name, Rizalino, comes from the fact that he was born exactly 100 years after Filipino national hero José Rizal.[8] Torre is married to Christy Azcona in 1990 and had a daughter together.
