Phillip "Ipe" Salvador (born Phillip Mikael Reyes Salvador; August 22, 1953) is a three-time FAMAS award-winning Filipino actor.
Salvador was the son of the athlete and film/stage producer Lou Salvador. He is the brother to Alona Alegre, Leroy Salvador, Lou Salvador, Jr., Jobelle Salvador, Ross Rival (born Rosauro Salvador), Deborah Sun (born Louise Salvador) and the uncle of actress Maja Salvador.
Salvador made his film debut in 1971 with Adios Mi Amor. He toiled in minor roles in Philippine movies until he became a protege of director Lino Brocka. Together, they made more than ten films in a row, including Ang Tatay Kong Nanay (1978), Mananayaw (1978), Gumising Ka, Maruja (1978), Hayop sa Hayop (1978), Init (1979), Jaguar (1979), Bona (1980), Kontrobersyal (1981), Cain at Abel (1982) and PX (1982). Jaguar, where Salvador played the lead, became the first Filipino film to be entered into competition at the Cannes Film Festival. Salvador played the leading role in another Brocka film, Bayan Ko: Kapit Sa Patalim (1985), for which he won his first of three FAMAS Best Actor awards. In 1989, Salvador again starred in another Brocka film, Orapronobis, which was critical of the human rights record of the administration of President Corazon Aquino. That film was banned by the local film censors, the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board.
Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Salvador headlined several biopics, including Balweg (1986), Boy Negro (1980), Kumander Dante (1988), Joe Pring: Homicide Manila Police (1989), and Ka Hector (1995). For his portrayal of Senator Robert Barbers in Bobby Barbers, Parak, Salvador won his third FAMAS Best Actor Award; he had previously won his second such award for Padilla: Bala Lang ang Katapat mo! in 1993.
He is now married to Emma Ledesma. He has a son named Josh (born 1995) with Kris Aquino.
