John Lloyd Cruz reveals that he received a tempting offer to switch networks


103011-jlc_main.jpgJohn Lloyd Cruz remains a kapamilya with no less than ABS-CBN Chairman and CEO Eugenio Lopez III joining his contract signing together with President Charo Santos-Concio and Star Cinemja head Malou Santos last October 24. It was a significant event as John Lloyd confessed that he considered his other options before making a decision to stay with his home network.

Nagkaroon ng offer. Medyo tempting. Pero pinagaralan ko. Gaya ng kahit anong [trabaho], siyempre itong trabaho naming ito [bilang artista], business ito na kailangan mong pagaralan mabuti. Sa haba ng pinagdaanan, ito na ako, [certified Kapamilya pa rin]. Gagawa ako ng isa o dalawang pelikula a year at pinaka-mahina na yung isang teleserye a year.”

Although he was almost tempted to switch networks, the country’s three-time Box Office King shared that nothing could make him trade the sense of peace and comfort that he feels as a contract artist of ABS-CBN. “Of course, nanaig yung pagiging Kapamilya ko. Pagkatapos ng lahat ng pag-uusap, at the end of the day, na-realize ko na nandito ang lahat ng kailangan ko, nandito yung puso ko, nandito yung tahanan ko. Na kahit medyo mahirap yung pinagdaanan, very enlightening naman.”

In the meantime, John Lloyd said that he’s excited to resume shooting his movie with Angel Locsin anytime soon. “Nagbabalik ako sa movie. Hindi ko lang alam kung kailan yung magiging play date, pero yun muna ang gagawin ko. But I think very soon magbabalik na rin ako sa TV. Medyo na-delay lang yung movie kasi para tapusin rin yung kontrata, para maplantsa na lahatSana lahat ng plinaplano at iniisip, magawa at ma-deliver namin. Exciting ang project na ito para sa aming dalawa ni Angel.”

John Lloyd also mentioned a possible collaboration with newly returned Kapamilya artist, Richard Gomez. “Actually, nakarinig ako ng project na pwede naming pagsamahan. I mean, concept na maaari lang gawin. Siyempre nakakatuwa tsaka maganda na may isang dating kapamilya na nagbalik dito. At kung meron man hindi maganda na nangyari noon, ibig sabihin naayos. Kapag may bagay na naaayos, ibig sabihin, magandang bagay yun,” he concluded.
