Born in Manila, Philippines and raised in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, Manny Jacinto went from completing a civil engineering degree to dancing in hip hop competitions.  He found his passion for acting when he landed his first television co-star role in the Emmy nominated series, Once Upon A Time.  Since then, he has appeared in Supernatural, The 100, Bates Motel, iZombie, Wayward Pines and starring in the CBC television series, The Romeo Section where he was nominated for a Leo Award for Best Supporting Performance by a Male in a Dramatic Series.

These days, you can see him weekly opposite Kristen Bell and Ted Danson in the hit NBC comedy, The Good Place as ‘Jason Mendoza,’ a deceased Filipino DJ and small-time drug dealer from Florida who was mistaken for silent Buddhist monk from Taiwan, ‘Jianyu Li.’

The show has been renewed for a second season and will return with thirteen new episodes for the 2017-2018 television season, Thursday, September 28 at 8:30/7:30c on NBC.

In a June, 2014 interview with Asian Pacific Post, Jacinto was asked about his future goals as an artist…

My long-term goals involve being able to inspire other performers, especially those of Filipino or Asian descent. It seems as though in Asian households, especially in families that have newly immigrated to North America, the idea of being an artist or performer is uncommon and sometimes even frowned upon. I want to be able to serve as an example to those who may feel they have a calling to act, dance, or sing, and hopefully one day inspire them to follow their dreams, just as I did.” [link].
