Monday, November 17, 2014
THE PHILIPPINE STAR -- Impressive. May be the first thing that comes to mind upon reading his curriculum vitae. He earned his Associate’s degree in electrical electronic engineering from City College of San Francisco and his Bachelor’s in Liberal Arts or Inter-Disciplinary Arts minor in Music (classical guitar) from San Francisco State University. He has appeared in a total of 56 productions, two of which are Italian and one a Hollywood film, “The Great Raid,” starring James Franco and Benjamin Bratt. Anson has long ceased to be known as the brother of award-winning actress Boots Anson-Roa and the son of legendary film star Oscar Moreno. Anson is no longer just an actor. The 52 year-old is now focused on producing and shooting both indie and mainstream films in the Philippines. He also offers services for international companies that want to film in the country.
