A loving and supporting father, those are the perfect words to describe Joko Diaz. Francisco Diaz Jr. in real life, Joko started his acting career in the ’80s. He was one of the sought after leading men in many action films and also starred in many tv shows. Hector, a villain character in Kadenang Ginto was one of the epic characters he portrayed on television.
Aside from being a good actor, Joko is also a good father to his kids. He is married to a non-showbiz wife and has 2 kids, Ashley and Pacquie. Joko also has a daughter, Nicole, with actress Angelu de Leon. Coming from a family of celebrities, Joko’s daughter Ashley is now following his footsteps. Indeed, acting runs in their blood.
Just like her father, Ashley has great looks. The short hairstyle compliments her angelic face. She posted pictures of her new look on her Instagram and a lot of people were amazed by her looks. Netizens also noticed the sweetness between Ashley and her father Joko. She even gave a sweet message to his father on his birthday.
Meanwhile, Ashley is now ready to join the busy life of showbusiness. Joko is all out in supporting his daughter’s showbiz career. Acting comes very naturally since Ashley’s grandfather, Paquito Diaz, and auntie, Cheska Diaz are also great actors. Despite his very busy schedule, Joko makes sure that he has quality time with his family. His Instagram account shows a lot of family bonding pictures and fun times with his daughter Ashley.
At the age of 14, Ashley already signed a contract with Viva Artists Agency. Aside from acting, Ashley has a talent in singing and Moira dela Torre is one of her influences. The father and daughter tandem has appeared on several TV shows just like ABS-CBN’s morning talk show Magandang Buhay where Ashley gave his father a very sweet message. She said:
“I am very proud that you are my father. I want more bonding moments with you. I love you”.
I hope to see Joko and Ashley do a project together. More to come Ashley and good luck to your showbiz career.
