If he is not in front of the cameras, Luis Manzano is most likely under the sea.
Having started his love affair with the ocean and all the beautiful underwater creatures 13 years ago, Manzano says it is a natural progression for a water baby like him.
‘‘For me, it’s beach, beach, beach. Leave me on a boat and everything will be alright between me and my world. Kalmado lahat,’’ says the actor who has always been curious about the world underneath.
His passion for diving is so strong that he never lets a month pass without exploring the waters in Anilao in his home province Batangas, and indulge in underwater photography. Diving is what grounds him, Anilao is his happy place, he admits.
“My free time is spent on diving, if I could adjust my sked, I would for diving. If I have even a bit of a free time in my busy sked, larga na ko sa Batangas to dive. Even during ‘The Voice,’ after the show, diretso na ko,’’ Manzano exclaims.
