John Lloyd Cruz talks about his leading ladies


John Lloyd Cruz is one of the most bankable and sought-after leading men in showbiz today. The good looking and talented actor possesses a magical command on TV ratings and movie ticket sales regardless of whoever his leading lady is.

Kaye Abad was John Lloyd'rsquo;s first ka-love team. Their tandem was born in the weekly youth-oriented drama Tabing Ilog which aired from 1999 to 2003. John Lloyd said about Kaye, "Kapag naiisip ko si Kaye lagi kong naaalala kung paano ako nagsimula. Kung paano ako tine-test during my younger days in showbiz. Siya 'lsquo;yung kasama ko nung nagsisimula ako."

In 2002, John Lloyd was finally given a breakthrough role opposite Lorna Tolentino in the primetime teleserye Kay Tagal Kitang Hinintay. He was also paired with a then newcomer Bea Alonzo. The John Lloyd-Bea love team was born and figured in numerous teleseryes namely It Might Be You, Maging Sino Ka Man Book 1 and 2, and I Love Betty La Fea, plus the box office movies My First Romance, Now That I Have You, Close To You, All About Love, One More Chance, and Miss You Like Crazy. "Bea is the most complex I'rsquo;ve probably met. Mahirap siyang basahin," John Lloyd said.

John Lloyd was chosen to star as the big screen prince to Pop Star Princess Sarah Geronimo in the romantic comedy film A Very Special Love. When the film scored big in the box office, John Lloyd and Sarah reunited for the sequel You Changed My Life, which again was a huge success. "She'rsquo;s intriguing. Meron siyang charm o charisma sa pag-please ang pagpapangiti ng mga fans niya. Para sa akin she'rsquo;s a real star," he said about the singer-actress.

John Lloyd is currently seen on primetime TV playing a vampire in love with a shewolf played by Angel Locsin in the teleserye Imortal. On their first project together, John Lloyd got firsthand experience of how caring Angel is toward the people around her. "Si Angel 'lsquo;yung pinakamaalaga sa mga babaeng nakilala ko. Feeling ko tuloy ako 'lsquo;yung leading lady. Marami akong natutunan sa kanya."

Now, in his new big screen project entitled My Amnesia Girl, John Lloyd is paired with the multimedia star Toni Gonzaga. Even before the shooting of the film started, John Lloyd had often talked about being a fan of Toni'rsquo;s talent as a singer, host, and actress. "I'rsquo;m a fan of Toni. Lalo na siguro pagkatapos ng My Amnesia Girl. Dito kasi nabuhay 'lsquo;yung pagiging fan ko ni Toni."
