Alden Richards has just signed a new contract with GMA-7 today, October 15, 2021.
And in a few months, he will be celebrating his 11th year in show business.
In all those years, Alden has been a happy and loyal Kapuso.
He described the journey as “so far, so good,” saying being loyal to GMA-7 has been for him his "greatest accomplishment."
The 29-year-old actor expounded, “There were times na parang hindi ako sure sa mga ginagawa ko sa buhay, pero nag-stick lang ako doon sa principle ko to be loyal sa GMA.
“I guess iyon iyong isa sa mga factors na nagdala sa akin into where I am right now.
"I am really proud to say that GMA has been there every step of the way from day one na pumasok ako sa industry.
“Actually, parang hindi lang naman sa network iyong loyalty, e.
“Actually, in all aspects of life, loyalty is a big factor for everyone kasi that shows how genuine you are to this certain commitment.
"And doon mas nakikita iyong test of attitude ng taong iyon towards a certain relationship.
”So ako, being loyal with GMA for the past 11 years has been one of the, kumbaga, greatest accomplishments of my life.
“Parang sa school, di ba, kapag ga-graduate meron tayong loyalty awardees, pati sa kumpanya?
“Parang ang sarap lang magkaroon ng ganun kasi isa iyong loyalty ko sa GMA na masasabi kong paninindigan ko sa buhay.
"Na napanindigan ko iyong pagiging loyal ko sa GMA for this long, and I’m very happy with that decision.”
Alden faced the editors of PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other websites of Summit Media for this exclusive interview after his contract signing today.
Present during the Summit Exclusives interview were Smart Parenting, SPIN Life, Esquire, Top Gear, and Top Bikes.
FAVORITE KAPUSO MOMENTS
Alden revealed that contract renewal events have been his favorite Kapuso moments.
He explained the occasions remind him of all his achievements as an actor, which he is prone to take for granted.
He shared with the media groups, “I always look forward to contract signings kasi iyong contract signings, sina-summarize niyan iyong journey mo prior to that moment, e.
“So isa-summarize nila iyon, gagawan nila ng AVP (audio-visual presentation) and then you yourself will see na, ’Ay, ito pala iyong mga nagawa ko.’
“Kasi everything’s happening so fast in the industry, very busy iyong schedule ‘tapos ‘di mo na namamalayan iyong mga mangyayari.
“Those moments, iyon iyong talagang nilu-look forward ko na kapag contract signings na iku-compile na lahat ng mga achievements and accomplishments as an actor and as an artist of the network.
“So ayon, that would thicken the trust and loyalty I have with GMA so happy ako when I have those kinds of moments with them.”
Alden is set to celebrate his 11th year in show business on December 8, 2021.
He is currently focused on his teleserye, The World Between Us, which is expected to return on November 22 after a season break.
