Philippine Actor. Philippine Entertainment.
Marc Nelson arrived in the Philippines in the late 90’s for a diving holiday but ended up staying for good, working the catwalk, hosting TV shows and teaching a step or two in Eezy Dancing. He soon became the face of Bench Underwear.
Born Marc Saw Nelson on Valentine’s Day in Sydney, Australia, Marc admits that modeling is something he never even considered doing.
There are a lot of things people don't know about Marc Nelson. He studied in Australia and graduated with a Science degree in Human Geography, a course similar to Social Anthropology.
He has taught gymnastics, sold hi-fi audio-video equipment, tutored Bulgarians in English and worked as a bartender, concierge and newspaper boy.
With genes he inherited from his multi-racial parents, complemented by his interest in sports and outdoor activities, Marc became a favorite for ramp, TV and print ads and as host for TV shows and events. (His mom has Burmese and English blood, born in Scotland and raised in Burma and Thailand; while his father is of Chinese and Burmese origin but migrated in Australia).
