Childhood and Education

Carlos was born at the Cardinal Santos Hospital in San Juan, Metro Manila. He took up a pre-school education in Marcellis School in Antipolo City.

In 2000, together with his mother Teresa, they moved to Australia. He studied at the St. Aidans Catholic School in Maroubra, Sydney and the John Forrest School in Perth during his stay in Australia.

Carlos Diego Loyzaga Montano studied high school in OB Montessori Center, Inc. - Greenhills.

Showbiz Career

In his first venture of show business, Carlos signed a contract with ABS-CBN to play a major role of hit tele-series movie "Mara Clara".

Before Diego accepted the major role in "Mara Clara", he underwent several trainings and acting workshops under Laurice Guillen and Malu de Guzman.

Kathryn Bernardo, the lead star of "Mara Clara", claimed she's a schoolmate of Carlos Diego but didn't personally know each other. Diego reportedly said that he would be happy to know Kathryn more while working in the teleseries movie.

Why Loyzaga and not Montano?

In showbiz, Diego uses the surname Loyzaga and not Montano. It's her mother's decision to do so and to enter in showbiz even if it's against the will of his father Cesar Montano. Cesar wanted Diego to study first before going to showbiz. But it was Diego's mom to push him to work in showbiz at an early age.
