MULING pumirma si Alden Richards ng exclusive contract sa GMA kaya 11 taon na siyang Kapuso.
“Limitless” ang salitang ginamit ni Alden para i-describe ang kanyang career sa ngayon.
“Of course, GMA first trusted me. Of all the people, of all the networks. GMA gambled on me. Hindi sila sigurado, pero they decided na bigyan natin ng risk ‘yung Alden Richards.
“So parang ako naman, being a newbie during that time, sino ba naman ako para to take that opportunity for granted? The only thing I can do is to work hard wholeheartedly, passionately and parang it’s the least I can do for the trust, eh.
“’Yun kasi siguro ang isa sa pinakamahirap makuha when it comes to relationship, ‘yung trust. Because it’s the basis of all relationships.
“So for you to be able to be given that kind of trust by one of the biggest networks in the Philippines… I mean, the biggest network in the Philippines… parang ‘yun na lang ang puwede kong ibigay na kapalit.
“And I said limitless because throughout the years that I’ve been in GMA, ‘yung mga nagagawa kong trabaho under their wings and outside their wings is also limitless.
“And what I appreciate about my bosses in GMA and all GMA Artist Center, they really gave me an opportunity to fly further by doing projects outside the wall of the network.
“At hindi nila ko, kumbaga, nire-restrict na ‘rito ka lang.’ Walang ganoon.
“Hindi po ako nare-restrict with the potential that I can give because I can give more. So, pinayagan po nila ako to do projects even outside.
“So with those kind of moments na nangyayari sa akin, lalo talagang natatanim sa puso ko na tama ‘yung desisyon ko to be with GMA and to stay with GMA.
“Siguro until the end of my career.”
Samantla, magbabalik na sa Nobyembre sa GMA ang The World Between Us nina Alden (as Louie Asuncion), Jasmien Curtis-Smith (as Lia Libradila), at Tom Rodriguez (as Brian Libradilla).
