FROM the 14-year-old boy that first captured the hearts of televiewers in the talent search Protégé, Ruru Madrid has come a long way in the entertainment industry as an actor, model, and performer. The homegrown talent remains a loyal Kapuso as he renewed his contract with GMA Network last Friday, October 4.
Ruru expressed his gratitude to GMA for believing in his potential from day one up to now, “I’m very thankful, grabe ‘yung tiwala na binigay sa akin ng Network. From the very start of my career, sila na ‘yung unang naniwala. Bilang ganti sa tiwala na binibigay nila sa akin, everytime na may ginagawa akong projects, sobrang pinagbubuti ko.”
In his first six years in showbiz, Ruru already showcased his charm and talent in notable shows such as Let The Love Begin, The Half Sisters, My Destiny, Encantadia, Sherlock Jr., Inday Will Always Love You and TODA One I Love. Last August, he also launched his first-ever single entitled ‘Nawawala’ under GMA Music. He also stars in the upcoming film ‘CaraXJagger’ alongside Jasmine Curtis-Smith.
Present in the contract signing were GMA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Atty. Felipe L. Gozon, GMA Senior Vice President for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable, GMA Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara, and GMA Artist Center Senior Talent Manager Vic del Rosario.
