Derek Ramsay is now a Kapuso! The actor officially inked an exclusive contract with GMA Network on Wednesday, April 3.
"It’s surreal right now. It’s unbelieveable," Derek told the media. "I’ve been waiting all my life for this day."
According to Derek, it was easy to make the move. "The way they approached me and my family, it was again with so much respect."
Derek narrated how the Kapuso Network reached out to get to know, not only him but his family. "I was shocked they reached out to my folks and we had a great meeting. No negative talk, they just wanted to get to know me and my family.
"And my family, they said 'you should do this.' And I was like wow, they are really so close to me so when I felt so comfortable, sabi ko perfect fit na talaga to. They gave me the time to prepare my mind, my body."
