Dingdong Dantes remains a Kapuso as he renewed his contract with GMA Network on Monday morning, April 21.
The Kapuso Primetime King sat between GMA chairman and CEO Felipe L. Gozon and GMA president and COO Gilberto Duavit Jr. as he signed his renewal.
GMA SVP for Entertainment Group Lilybeth Rasonable and Dingdong's manager Perry Lansigan were also present.
"Tayo’y really proud na hindi lamang siya dito na-develop and and now he’s now one of the most outstanding actors not only in GMA but in the whole country," Mr. Gozon said.
"There’s a great sense of happiness and pride, kasi hindi siya nag-iba, bagamat ang laki na ng tinaas sa industriya. He has remained the same, very humble, very professional, very consciencious and loyal person and friend. Kaya nakakatuwa and well lalo na ngayon padre de pamilya na. Time flies, and it’s great to continue working with a person who has remained to be an example to everybody," Mr. Duavit said.
"Nakakatuwa kasi actually halos magkasabay kami eh when I started here with GMA. At masasabi kong nakakagalak na makita siya na mag-develop as an actor, as a director, as a producer and also as a family man. 'Yong dalawang babies nila ni Marian, GMA babies yun.
"He’s such a versatile actor so ang sarap gawan ng mga characters na puwede niyang gampanan kasi kayang-kaya niya. Ang mga writers nacha-challenge din what to give him para every time he comes up on television may bagong mapapanuod sa kanya," Ms. Rasonable said.
"Higit kalahati ng buhay ko sa GMA. Dito ko nakilala yung asawa ko; nakilala ko siya, kinasal kami. Dito kami nagkaron ng panganay at ngayon nagkaron ng pangalawang anak, so practically lahat ng mga highlights ng buhay ko ay naganap dito sa GMA," Dingdong said, noting his 21 years in the Kapuso network. — LA, GMA News
