Jean Garcia Renews
Exclusive Contract with GMA Network
Seasoned actress and television host Jean Garcia remains a loyal Kapuso as she signed today (July 2) another three-year exclusive contract with GMA Network.
Present during the contract signing were GMA Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe L. Gozon; GMA Entertainment TV's Senior Vice President Lilybeth G. Rasonable; GMA Vice President for Drama Productions Redgie Acuña-Magno; and Jean’s manager Director Manny Valera.
During the contract signing, Jean revealed that she is very thankful with the way GMA has been taking good care of her career all these years, “Maraming, maraming salamat sa GMA talaga. Hindi sila nawawalan ng tiwala sa akin. Fourth year ko na sa kanila na natapos na, tapos ito, may blessing na naman at nagbigay na naman ng tiwala ang GMA sa akin. We are proud kasi member tayo ng Kapuso family at nakakapagpasaya tayo ng mga tao.”
Jean is likewise very proud for the continued success of The Half Sisters in TV ratings and its remarkable achievement as the No. 1 daytime program nationwide, “Gusto kong magpasalamat, hindi namin alam kung paano ba nangyari na patuloy pa rin ang pagiging No. 1 ng The Half Sisters maybe because yung commitment and love and passion sa work. Plus siyempre maganda ang storya, ang mga writers pinagpapaguran lahat ng paggawa, ang director, ang bumubuo ng produksyon staff and crew, at mga artista hindi tumitigil sa pagtatrabaho ng 101%. We are very blessed and grateful sa audience dahil hindi sila bumibitiw sa The Half Sisters and GMA.”
Aside from The Half Sisters, Jean is also the host of the relationship-advice program of the network, Love Hotline.
Atty. Gozon has nothing but praises for Jean and considers her as one of the most versatile stars in the country, “Actually matagal nang nasa bakuran natin si Jean at isa siya sa mga pinakamagagaling na artista na kilala ko at tayo ay very thankful na nadesidihan niya to stay with us. Napakagaling na dramatic actress ni Jean. Kahit ano naman ay pwedeng gampanan ni Jean, whether comedy, serious drama, so walang problema diyan.”
Rasonable said that Jean is a very talented artist and the network will continue to provide good projects for her, ”Sabi nga ni Atty. Gozon kahit ano ang ibigay nating role sa kanya, gagampanan niya. She delivers. And not only does she deliver, she delivers it well. Bakit naman hindi natin gugustihin na makasama pa siya at mabigyan pa siya ng magagandang projects na napapaganda pa niya because of her performance? Kasi she is very versatile. Kaya, more great drama projects for her.”
Valera, on the other hand, said he is looking forward to a stronger working relationship with the network, “We are truly happy that GMA again renewed the contract of Jean for three years. We are looking forward to more good shows from GMA 7. The network has been very supportive of Jean as far as roles in their soaps are concerned. Maaasahan din na ibibigay ni Jean ang kanyang 100% best para sa mga characters na ipo-portray niya in the future. Nagpapasalamat kami dahil patuloy ang pagbibigay ng break sa kanya as a talk show host. Iyon nga ang matagal na niyang hinihiling. At napatunayan naman niya na mahusay siyang host.” /MP
