Early life and beginning career
Vic Vargas was born on March 28, 1939. Vargas was a three-time Philippine judo champion at the age of 17.
He starred in well over 60 films between the late 1950s and early 1960s to 2002. Due to his swarthy looks he was often typecast in action and sexy comedy films. In the mid-‘70s, he was an on and offcam pair with 1969 Miss Universe Gloria Diaz. They starred in Ang Pinakamagandang Hayop sa Balat ng Lupa, which started the so-called wet-and-wild look.
He died on July 19, 2003 from a stroke at the age of 64.
