Did you know that homegrown ABS-CBN actor John Lloyd Cruz once appeared in a GMA-7 show?
He did a guest appearance in GMA-7's horror anthology show Kakabakaba sometime in the year 2000.
He was a guest in the episode called "Sumalangit Nawa," with Rio Locsin, Danica Sotto, Danilo Barrios, and Janus del Prado as his co-stars.
The episodes of Kakabakaba are currently uploaded on GMA-7's YouTube channel as part of its SuperStream presentation.
Here are some of John Lloyd's scenes in the episode:
JOHN LLOYD cruz AS AN EXCLUSIVE ABS-CBN TALENT
At the time John Lloyd did a guest appearance in the Kapuso program while he was still doing his show with ABS-CBN, Tabing Ilog.
John Lloyd entered showbiz, and signed up with ABS-CBN Talent Center (now Star Magic), in 1997.
Back then, only a few artists had the exclusivity clause in their contracts.
This was most likely the reason John Lloyd was able to guest on GMA-7.
It was in 2002 when John Lloyd became an exclusive contract artist of ABS-CBN.
There were rumors then of his supposed transfer to GMA-7, but ABS-CBN gave him a counteroffer: the lead role in the prime-time series Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay.
Since then, he became a loyal Kapamilya, playing lead roles in several teleseryes and movies under its film outfit, Star Cinema.
In 2017, however, John Lloyd took a hiatus from showbiz.
Currently, there are rumors that John Lloyd is joining Crown Artists Management, a talent management company headed by Maja Salvador.
