Jaclyn Jose and Alden Richards finally signed their exclusive contracts with GMA Network today, October 25, 2013. These stars were last seen together in the hit Telebabad soap Mundo Mo’y Akin as Doña Charito (Jaclyn) and Jerome (Alden).
Present at the said event were GMA Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe L. Gozon, President and COO Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr., GMA Films President Atty. Annette Gozon-Abrogar, Entertainment TV Group OIC Lilybeth G. Rasonable, Entertainment TV Vice President Marivin Arayata, AVP for Corporate Communications Angel Javier-Cruz, and AVP for Alternative Productions Gigi S. Lara.
“Bihira sa isang araw na dalawang magagaling artista ang pinipipirma natin kaya it's a special day because today we signed Jaclyn Jose and Alden Richards. Parehong magagaling na artista,” said Gozon.
This is the first time that Jaclyn Jose decided to have a bond with a certain network. “For a change, try natin na to stay in one house. I feel secure. Siyempre, you have a tuloy-tuloy na work. And looking forward sa mga next projects. Gagalingan ko pa,” she shared.
According to Jaclyn, she is ready to work with any Kapuso actors and any projects that GMA will offer. She added, “basta siyempre, I’ll give only the best. Ako naman lahat naman ng ginagawa kong projects, ‘yong best ko ‘yung binibigay ko eh. So I will work very hard, I will make sure na kakapit ‘yung audience sa character. Like what I always do.”
On the other hand, Alden Richards is very thankful because after 3 years in showbiz, GMA finally decided to include Alden in their roster of exclusive Kapuso actors.
“Sobrang happy po! Parang ang bilis po ng nangyari at nabigyan ako ng chance na makapirma ng isang network contract na it would take years para mapatunayan ko pa ‘yung sarili ko in this field pero GMA trusted me. It's not a risk for me pero ‘yung risk nila sa’kin ay hindi ko sasayangin,” he added.
“My career now with GMA is moving forward ever year. Moving forward with good projects, and good image and opportunities po na naibibigay sa'kin so siguro sana po magpatuloy yung ganito kagandang relationship with me and GMA. And sana po tuloy tuloy po ‘yung suporta ng network sa'kin. I'm just so proud to be a Kapuso,” Alden shared.
When asked about the plans for Jaclyn and Alden, Rasonable answered, “Si Ms. Jaclyn, mayroon na rin siyang follow up soap. Hindi pa lang namin naipe-present sa kaniya. We'll sit down with her soon. Si Alden, abangan niyo, he's coming out in a very big primetime soap na talagang magugulat kayo sa makakapartner niya at saka ‘yung scope nung story ay napakalaki at napakaganda.”
On the other hand, GMA's President and COO Gilberto R. Duavit Jr. shared what he envisions for the two Kapuso stars. “Hindi na kaila na si Jaclyn is one of the finest actresses [we have]. Si Alden naman, kung potential ang pinag-uusapan at husay na rin eh walang kaduda-duda. So ang nakikita natin are great opportunities for both Jaclyn and of course Alden.”
