Diego Loyzaga is now ready to make a showbiz comeback after he took some time off from the spotlight.
This was the exciting announcement of Viva Artists Agency (VAA) to fans of the actor, as it introduced Diego as the latest addition to its growing family on Tuesday, August 11.
“We are excited to announce that Diego Loyzaga is back and he'll be the newest addition to our growing family!” said the agency.
An online media conference for Diego is scheduled on Wednesday, August 12, at 6 p.m. on Viva’s official Facebook page, it added.
Prior to joining VAA, Diego, the son of Cesar Montano and Teresa Loyzaga, was a contract artist of ABS-CBN’s talent arm Star Magic.
The 25-year-old, who started acting in 2011, is best known for his lead roles in numerous ABS-CBN teleseryes, including “Pusong Ligaw” and “Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Los Bastardos.”
In 2018, Diego took a hiatus from showbiz to deal with his depression.
His mother Teresa publicly spoke about Diego’s recovery from depression in a “Magandang Buhay” episode that aired in July 2019.
“Right now, Diego has decided na wala muna akong gadgets,” the actress said at the time. “Talagang lahat 'yan out. He is maturing and he's realizing what little things actually mean.”
"Now he wants to go to school. He wants to study directing. Sabi ko why not? Kasi he has an eye, magaling siya sa camera talaga. Alam niya ang shots, alam niya 'yung codes, sabi ko good on you. So refocus, 'yun lang 'yon. It's a good thing you stop muna, take a break, reassess, refocus and then go," she added.
She also assured fans of Diego that he would soon return to showbiz, as she extended her gratitude to those who had been patiently waiting for her son’s comeback.
“Ayaw namin kayong i-let down,” said Teresa. “Soon we will be able to give you a date and we will be able to say yes… I promise you the day will come when he returns, hindi namin kayo bibitinin. Hindi namin kayo pagsu-suwapangan ng panahon, oras at talento. Babalik siya.”
