FERNANDO POE SR.

Fernando Poe Sr. BIOGRAPHY

Fernando Poe SrFernando Poe, Sr. (1916 - 1951) was a famous actor during the early cinema era in the Philippines. He was the father of the late Fernando Poe, Jr., who was an iconic and hugely popular actor, who had ran for the Philippine Presidency in 2004. He directed the first Darna film in 1951 before he died in the same year.

Poe, Sr. had been rumored to be the model of the University of the Philippines’ famous statue — "The Oblation", although it was later revealed that it was actually Anastacio Caedo.


Fernando Poe, Sr. had six children by his partner, Irish-American Elizabeth "Bessie" Kelley, namely Elizabeth, Ronald Allan (FPJ), Fernando (Andy), Genevieve (Jenny), Fredrick (Freddieboy), and Evangeline. Poe and Kelly were married in 1940 after Ronald Allan was born.

Filipino actor Conrad Poe was his illegitimate son by actress Patricia Mijares.

The original spelling of his surname was Pou (pronounced almost like Poe) via his father, playwright Lorenzo Pou, a Balearic immigrant from Majorca, Spain, who established a mining business in the Philippines.

During a film shooting, Fernando Poe, Sr. died in 1951 after he permitted a rabid puppy to lick his wound.
