Baron Frederick von Geisler (born 5 June 1982 in Clark Air Base, Angeles City, Philippines) is a multi-award winning Filipino actor, the son of a Filipina mother and a German American father who was stationed at the former U.S. military base in Angeles City. He is the brother of Donald Geisler, a retired Olympic taekwondo-jin.
Several of Geisler's accolades includes winning the Best Actor award in the 4th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival on July 20, 2008 and the 2005 PMPC Best Single Performance of an Actor in "Maalaala Mo Kaya" (Will You Ever Remember?).
Geisler entered show business as a child actor in 1994 through the phenomenal variety kiddie/teen gag show Ang TV. A year later, he became officially a part of ABS-CBN's roster of rising homegrown talents as a member of the elite Star Circle Batch 5. He was considered as one of the network's most promising young stars alongside John Lloyd Cruz and Marc Solis in the boy trio "Koolits", where he was once paired up with Kristine Hermosa.
Geisler is one of the most controversial young actors in his generation.

One of the said brawls is a bar scuffle, in fact, left him with two visible scars on his left cheek. His own mother eventually signed him up in a detox facility (for 10 days) thus helping him earn the nickname as the "Wild Child" of Pinoy Big Brother: Celebrity Edition 2 and recently as the newest "Bad Boy" image in Philippine Showbiz.
Geisler's is known to have had a past relationships with actress and former Tabing Ilog co-star Jodi Sta. Maria and Dionne Monsanto.
