Top 10 Meanest Pinoy Contrabidas lists 10 Pinoy actors who are so good at being bad.
Published on: Aug 17, 2010 - 12:00pm

Paquito Diaz at his evil best in 1991's Batas ng .45.


When he was younger, Diaz played basketball for the Far Eastern University (FEU) Tamaraws in the 1960s. He went on to star in movies like Ang Pagbabalik ni Daniel Barrion (1968), Kamaong Asero (1981), and Magtago Ka Na Sa Pinanggalingan Mo (1987). His moustache alone made him seem like a bad guy. Diaz also specialized in acting manic (when agitated by the hero) and cowardly (when he's caught by the hero and is about to get a dose of his own bad guy medicine).

Romy Diaz harasses Efren "Bata" Reyes in 2003's Pakners.


Though he closely resembles older brother Paquito, Romy--who also played basketball for the FEU Tamaraws--made his own mark as a villain. Compared to Paquito, Romy is more adept at playing sociopaths. While Paquito wins in the moustache department, Romy takes home the "crazy eyes" title. He starred in movies like 1988's Dugo ng Pusakal and1993's Humanda ka, Mayor! He died in 2005.

    @mary_ann_lei: If the article is entitled "Top 10 Meanest Pinoy Contrabidas," it should mean that the author SHOULDN'T be confined to a particular decade and that he should poll for the meanest pinoy contrabidas EVER.

    bakit wala din po sa list si Etang Ditcher, Bella Flores, Zeny Zabala? Sila ang mga classic contravida na markado sa puso't isip ng mga movieviewers kahit itanong nyo pa yan kay Gov. Vi, mapipili nya ang mga tunay na artistang lutang pagdating sa acting....

    Really, Jay Manalo, mean contravida? And Gagamboy and Zaido were the examples? How's that for mean?

    Baron Geisler? He's playing himself all the time, so he's in character. Should be easy for him. Baron is best when he's playing gay or loser, like in Tabing Ilog, "Jay" and "Jologs". When he's a contravida, he's channels ER Ejercito.

    Kung nandiyan si Eddie Garcia at VIC DIAZ, dapat nandiyan din sina VAN de LEON, OSCAR KEESE at BERT OLIVAR. Mga ka-contemporary nila!

    Si Armida ang pinakamatinding kontrabida. Pinahirapan nya talaga si FPJ.

  • Valiente
    Johnny Delgado, George Estregan, Subas Herrero should have been included in the list..Johnny Delgado was one of the favorite contrabida of FPJ. His "kingping" like acting was really scary, he should be in the top 3 at least.

    Excuse me mga Kuya, sino ba yang mga sinasabi niyo? Siguro 90's-2000 lang mga sinali ng author kaya wala yang mga sinasabi niyo.

    the list should include Tony Santos Sr. and Joseph de Cordova, two great character actors in the same mold as Eddie Garcia.
