Alfredo Paolo Dumlao Vargas III (born on October 24, 1981 in San Juan City) is a Filipino actor and model. He was elected councilor in the 2nd District of Quezon City in 2010.
Alfred Vargas was born on October 24, 1981 in San Juan City. He is the son of Alfredo Vargas, Jr and Susana Dumlao Vargas.
Vargas graduated in A.B. Management Economics in Ateneo de Manila University. He began his career as a member of ABS-CBN Star Magic (formerly Star Circle) acting workshop Batch 10. From there, he had his TV role in the drama soap opera, Pangako Sa'yo, from the same network. But this Ateneo de Manila graduate was acting in theatre long before the talent scouts lured him into television.
His breakthrough role came in the film Bridal Shower. After this, Vargas moved to the GMA Network where he featured in three shows in Philippine television: the daytime drama series, Daisy Siete, the fantasy series, Encantadia (as Aquil), and its prequel series Etheria (as Amarro, Aquil's father).
He played the leading role on the GMA daytime series Muli, opposite the Malaysian actress Carrie Lee and Marian Rivera as well as being part of the cast of Impostora in 2007. In 2008, he worked again with Marian Rivera in Dyesebel. He is also part of the upcoming installment of Una Kang Naging Akin co-starring Angelika dela Cruz, in which he plays "Ronnie".
His most recent movie projects include Status: Single and When I Met U. He is set to do an indie film, Amamanhig. In 2009, he appeared in All About Eve where he is reunited with his Impostora castmates Sunshine Dizon, Iza Calzado, and Mark Anthony Fernandez. He then made a villainous turn when he played the pirate captain Lima Wong in Zorro. He went on to play "Gabriel" in Darna but had to leave the series as he applied for candidacy for councilor.
In December 2010 he moved from the GMA-7 network to ABS-CBN and did projects for ABS-CBN, without contract as he is a public servant and cannot be exclusive.
