Nilo: Von Arroyo

“Pera-perahang Lata” is the debut film of singer, TV host, Pinoy Dream Academy (Seasons 1 and 2) Diction Master, John Robert Powers instructor, and V-Factor Events and Promotions project manager Von Arroyo.

Amidst the extensive auditions, Von is Rianne’s only choice to play the role of Nilo. Professional and good-natured as he is, he had that look that she found solely on him among the roster of talented actors vying for the role.

Von is best known for his musical talents with his very early and yet successful singing career. He was a Ryan Cayabyab music scholar and member of Cayabyab’s 14K. He had a number of music hits under his belt: his first self-titled album “Mr. Lonely” under Viva Records; “Maisip Mo Lang Ako” and “Reborn” under Prime Music and distributed by Viva Records; and the 14K Music album from 1989-1993. His hit singles include “If You Leave Me,” “Single Rain,” and “Through the Fire.”

He appeared in TV commercials for Coke, RCBC, Toyota, and PLDT. He also had his share of theatrical performances including the musicals “Princess of the Moon” at the Aliw Theater from 2002 to 2004 and “Belen” at the Star Theater, Star City from 2002 to 2004. He hosted PAGCOR’s Spin2win Magic 5 and also starred on “Fidel,” his second independent short film.

Von also attended ABS-CBN acting workshops and the 11th batch of Ricky Lee’s scriptwriting workshop.

He is an instructor for Conversational English, Voice and Communications, Believability, Acting, VTR and Eye Contact for John Robert Powers International.
