Dennis Trillo's career in entertainment started in 2001, when he was introduced as one of the young talents for the 10th batch of Star Circle, ABS-CBN Network’s artist machinery (now known as Star Magic). He was seen in the television soap opera 'Sa Dulo ng Walang Hanggan'(2001) as Jojo the confidante of one of the lead stars. Despite his exposure, Trillo’s career did not really take off.

An amusing trivia is that he was the voice of Steve Armstrong in 'Chôdenji mashin Borutesu Faibu'(1977) otherwise known as Voltes V.

He transfered to GMA7 and became a part of 'Twin Hearts'(2003), 'Kahit Kailan' and as Alfred in 'Love to Love.'

Dannis played Gabriel in the popular telefantasya (fantasy-themed TV series) 'Mulawin'(2004). He made his film debut in 'Aishite Imasu 1941: Mahal Kita'(2004) as Ignacio/Inya, where he received raves for his portrayal of a cross-dressing spy for the HUKBALAHAP during the advent of the Japanese invasion in World War II. For Aishite Imasu, he received several awards and citations including Best Supporting Actor from the '30th Metro Manila Film Festival' and Best Actor trophies from the 'Film Academy of the Philippines,' the 'PMPC Star Awards For Movies,' and the 'Young Critics Circle.' He was also in Mano Po 3: My Love.

2005 proved to be a more fruitful year for Trillo. He was part of the hit TV adaptation of the Mars Ravelo comic, 'Darna,' where he played Efren/Lalaking Ahas the love interest of both the titular super-heroine as well as her archenemy Valentina. He was later part of the drama anthology 'Now and Forever: Agos,' where he again showcased his acting prowess. That same year he reprised his role for 'Mulawin: The Movie,' and was also in the film 'Blue Moon' and "Blue Moon' as Kyle Pineda.

Dennis was again cast as a lead in 'Etheria'(2005), where he portrayed the Sapirian prince, Raquim. He also appeared in popular television fantasy series aptly called 'Majika'(2006) as Argo, a provocatively clad Salamanca (wizard) with finesse in archery who teaches his protégée Sabina (Angel Locsin) how to hone her craft and become a powerful sorceress. Aside from his television show, Dennis also starred in the horror-suspense film 'Pamahiin'(2006) as Noah.

Recognizing his passion for making music, GMA also included him as a co-host for the network's noontime show 'SOP' where he also displays his talent for drums as part of the show's Starband.

While playing Rod Henson in 'Magdusa Ka'(2008), he replaced Gabby Concepcion in 'I.T.A.L.Y. (I Trust and Love You)'(2008) as Paolo Guzman. After leading the soldiers of 'Zaido: Pulis Pangkalawakan'(2007) he is slated to take the lead in the tv series 'Gagamboy'(2008).

He is rumored to play Fernando Jose in the remake of 'Rosalinda' slated to run on 2009. And he has finished shooting 'Kulam'(2008) which is now in post-production as of this writing.
