biography of Aunor, Nora

Maria Leonora Teresa Villamayor
Nora
21 May 1953, Iriga, Camarines Sur, Philippines
She was born Nora Villamayor to a large and poor family in Iriga City, Camarines Sur. At the age of five, she was selling water at the railroad station. The family lived in a nipa house with only one gasera to provide light, and sometimes Nora went to school barefoot. But then, tinseltown beckoned. She began to make movies, and was paired with Tirso Cruz III. As Guy and Pip, they were a popular pair for many years, but then came a professional parting of the ways. From musicals, Nora graduated to dramatic roles. And what an actress she turned out to be! She remains one of the very best.
