Biography

Born as Margarette Sunshine Cansancio Dizon on July 3, 1983 to Isagani Benzon Dizon and Dorothy Cansancio Dizon, Sunshine is the sister of drummer Mike Dizon of Sandwich, the youngest and only girl in their family. At a young age, her mother who was then a producer of films and TV shows, noticed her interest in show business. She entered Philippine show business at the age of three.

When she was six, her dad left for the States. After a few months, she and her mom followed. When they went to the States, she was then shooting for the movie "Kung Kasalanan Man" with Dina Bonnevie and the scene in the movie where she is flying to the States is actually true because after shooting that scene, they proceeded to the airport immediately. She spent her seventh birthday in the United States.

She entered elementary and spent her Grade 1 in St. Joseph College and she even ranked three in the entrance examination. The funny story is that she was able to make it when the truth is that she is does not know how to read during that time. She didn't go through pre-school because she is already acting during that time that's why she has no knowledge in reading and writing. What she did was she told the proctor that she left her eyeglasses that's why she can't read the test question and asked for the proctor to read it for her. The school was impressed by the results of her examination. During this time, her mother also decided to focus on her academics and take a break from show business, they rejected a number of movies and projects. Later, she was asked to read a phrase from their book, that was the time that they discovered the truth that Sunshine can't actually read.

Sunshine was doing well in her classes. She one of the brightest students in her class, but she can't resist the call for acting because of the many offers she has been getting. She got an offer to star with Dolphy which they could not resist.

She transferred school to Sunny Hill when she was in Grade 2. At her young age, she is juggling acting and schooling yet she managed to be in the list of honorees. Still, despite her absences she got good grades and was even running for honors in her last year in elementary. But she wasn't given the award because a parent threatened the school that he would complain if Dizon gets an award because of her absences.

Acting career

The Childstar

Sunshine Dizon started acting at the age of three. Her screen name then was simply "Sunshine". Her mother was a producer then, and her mom would always bring her in her meetings. Her mother's co-producers were amazed and delighted by her personality; that's why they told her that she could be a child actress. The first movie that she did was "God’s Little Children".

At a young age, she has already worked with some of the icons in the local industry.

The Award-winning Actress

She even got two Best Actress Awards from ENPRESS (Golden Screen Entertainment TV Awards) and Gawad Amerika and various nominations for Encantadia.

She continued showing her comic antics in the sitcom Bahay Mo Ba To? (2005). Her Encantadia stint was followed by Captain Barbell (2006) where she played a pivotal villain. She was later pulled out from the show to give way for her biggest break on Philippine television, she was chosen to be the title roler in "Carlo J. Caparas' Bakekang", a role which was once played by Superstar Nora Aunor.
