Darwin Yu is a Filipino actor, brand endorser, entrepreneur, and model. He was born in Manila, Philippines. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Tourism Management from Trinity University of Asia, Quezon City, Philippines.
Darwin remembers that at around the age of 7, he watched Filipino dramas which starred well-known artists in the Philippines and he liked to mimic their acting. Since then, he knew that he was destined to be in the showbusiness industry. In 2014, he was discovered around the compound of a major broadcasting company in the Philippines and because of this, he was asked to do a cameo in a local TV show. In 2016, he was cast in his first indie film entitled “1st Sem.” It was an official entry at the CineFilipino film festival and it paved the way for his Best Actor nomination at the Madrid International Film Festival in 2018.
