The Kapuso heartthrob has just renewed his contract with GMA last June 27 in the presence of his manager Popoy Caritativo, GMA Network chairman and CEO Felipe L. Gozon, president and COO Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr., and Entertainment SVP Lilybeth G. Rasonable.
The actor said that GMA is both his home and playground.
“I feel very very much at home here… Ang gandang environment so feeling mo may playground ka (It’s a good environment, its like a playground) to stretch your arms and really feel the space. I love it,” he said in an interview with GMA’s 24 Oras.
He remains thankful that the network trusts him with some its biggest projects: “I’m very glad that GMA not only gambles on me continuously and trusts me, but [also] gives me the platform to spread my wings and not just enjoy my work, pero even to learn and grow from it.”
In closing, he said he is very happy to continue his career with the network.
“I really do feel like it’s the right fit for me kaya I’m very happy that I’ve been given another opportunity to cement my place here,” he said.
Tom Rodriguez’s 2013 transfer to GMA was made with a bang when he top-billed the hit first gay-oriented primetime TV series “My Husband’s Lover” with fellow Kapuso actors Dennis Trillo and Carla Abellana. His career skyrocketed to overwhelming heights when he played the closet king character of Vincent.
Since then, he has been a household name and a well-respected actor, especially by the LGBT community. He is currently in a relationship with Abellana. JB
