Phillip "Ipe" Salvador (born Phillip Mikael Reyes Salvador on August 22, 1953) is a three-time FAMAS award-winning Filipino actor. Salvador made his film debut in 1971 with Adios Mi Amor. He toiled in minor roles in Philippine movies until he became a protege of director Lino Brocka. Together, they made more than ten films in a row, including Ang Tatay Kong Nanay (1978), Mananayaw (1978), Gumising Ka, Maruja (1978), Hayop sa Hayop (1978), Init (1979), Jaguar (1979), Bona (1980), Kontrobersyal (1981), Cain at Abel (1982) and PX (1982). Jaguar, where Salvador played the lead, became the first Filipino film to be entered into competition at the Cannes Film Festival. Salvador played the leading role in another Brocka film, Bayan Ko: Kapit Sa Patalim (1985), for which he won his first of three FAMAS Best Actor awards. In 1989, Salvador again starred in another Brocka film, Orapronobis, which was critical of the human rights record of the administration of President Corazon Aquino. That film was banned by the local film censors, the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board.
