In California, Piolo worked odd jobs and even became an emergency room admitting clerk. In between his various jobs, he managed to attend acting workshops. Acting was his passion and it was in Manila that his chances were waiting. Even with his Mom’s opposition, he went back to Manila to pursue his dream. 

Back in Manila, Piolo started where he left off. Mr. M (Johnny Manahan) signed him as one of the Star Magic artists. He joined a series called Sa Sandaling Kailangan Mo Ako, playing Raffy. Later, he won a breakthrough role in "Lagarista" directed by Mel Chonglo which was brought to international film festivals. It was in the soap opera “Esperanza” that he was teamed with Judy Ann Santos. Even with the role of the villain, Piolo’s performance was noticed and his role was expanded till the end of the soap. “Esperanza” was the beginning of the "Piolo-Juday" loveteam, which is considered as one of the most successful team-ups in Philippine showbusiness. Their movies “Kahit Isang Saglit”, “Bakit Di Totohanin”, “Till There Was You” and “Don’t Give Up On Us” became box office hits and their soap operas “Sa Puso Ko Iingatan Ka” and “Sa Piling Mo” were top raters. He was also paired with award winning actresses in the likes of Claudine Barretto, Bea Alonzo, Maricel Soriano and Angel Locsin to name a few. His major achievement though came when he received the grand slam best supporting actor award from the movie “Dekada '70”, playing Jules, the son of veteran actors Christopher de Leon and Vilma Santos.
