A proud Kapuso for over a decade:
Alden Richards is a name that needs no introduction. With an impressive thread of local and international recognitions, box-office hits, top-rating series, and chart-topping albums, the Kapuso actor has proven worthy of his title as Asia’s Multimedia Star.
Last October 15, Alden renewed his contract with GMA Network, proudly continuing his more than a decade-long journey as a Kapuso.
“I’m a homegrown Kapuso at isa yun sa pinagmamalaki ko because my dreams came true sa tulong ng GMA. It’s an honor to be part of people’s lives and I get to do it because of GMA,” Alden shares.
He added that he has always considered GMA his second home. “I’d like to celebrate this kasi every year na nadagdag sa taon ko with GMA is a milestone for me and it made me feel that I am in the right place. Isang malaking karangalan po talaga maging parte ng GMA for 10 years. Here’s to another 10 years and I’m really looking forward po to more beautiful projects and opportunities with the Kapuso network.”
During the contract signing, top GMA executives showed their full support to Alden via Zoom, video messages, and their presence at Edsa Shangri-La Hotel.
