This would be the beginning of a long, brilliant acting career including nationally-aired commercial campaigns with Ford Motors, All Laundry Detergent, and Shake ‘N Bake Bread Crumbs. Philip also was the very first spokesman for Jell-O pudding snacks when he was 9 years old. Philip also landed rolls on TV movies including, "A Place to Call Home,” a story that was shot on location in Australia starring Linda Lavin, about a woman who moves from Texas to Australia to re-establish her roots with her 11 children.
