-   It was in 1970 that the young Rudy decided to really plunge into showbiz while a Commerce student at the University of Sto. Tomas. Due to his hectic schedules that he missed a lot of his classes, he quit schooling.

-   He made his movie debut at the age of three, appearing in _Luksang tagumpay (1956)_ (qv), which his father directed in 1956. His follow-up movie, _Emily (1960)_ (qv) was also directed by his father.
