A new Sunshine Cruz
After being under the wing of the late veteran talent manager Alfie Lorenzo, actress Sunshine Cruz now ventures into new borders, as she joins the roster of stars under ALV Talent Circuit.
Officially signing under the new talent company today, she was accompanied by her new manager and good friend Arnold L. Vegafria.
“Iba pa rin ‘yung may nag-aalaga sa akin at maganda rin naman na kahit 40 years old na tayo, meron pa ring tao na magbibigay direksyon sa ating career (It’s still different when someone takes care of my career. It’s also good that even if I’m already 40 years old, someone can still give direction to my career). Especially now that I’m a single mom,” said Cruz at her press conference earlier today.
Looking back at her beginnings, she particularly remembered how Lorenzo accepted every project that was offered to her.
“There was a time nga ‘nung single ako muntik na ko ma-ospital kasi talga wala ng tulog and I have to transfer to another taping tapos maliligo na lang. Before kasi diba ‘yung mga matatanda, you have to grab the opportunity, kasi hindi naman lagi ganyan, ganun ang style dati ni Tito Alfie,” she added.
(There was a time when I was single, when I almost got hospitalized for lack of sleep because I always had to transfer from one taping to another. I just had to take a bath and off I go. Before, the older ones would usually grab every opportunity, because there will be no opportunities always. That used to be the style of Tito Alfie.)
She however, remains thankful for Lorenzo and swears eternal love for him. As for her new manager, while Vegafria is likewise open for all opportunities for the beautiful mom of three, he will also be discerning of the projects he will accept for the actress.
“Strike while the iron is hot, yes, but still you have to choose the right projects,” said Vegafria.
Relaunching Sunshine Cruz
Vegafria is bent on repackaging Cruz.
“I want her to be a product endorser, she’s qualified. She’s still maintained her looks, her body. She will definitely make a good endorser of quality brands,” said Vegafria.
“We’re gonna go into movies, I had to repackage her that’s why naging ganyan siya. Sabe ko sakanya magpapayat ka, magpa ganda ka, mas lalo ka magpakinis para when we launch you again marami projects,” he added.
(… I had to repackage her that’s why she all the more improved physically. I told her to slim down further, to be more beautiful and more flawless, so that when we launch her again, there will be more [opportunities for more] projects.)
Besides her new management, her kids and a booming career, Cruz is happy-at-heart because of her love life. She is in a relationship with Macky Mathay, the half-brother of actress Ara Mina. She currently appears in the Kapamilya afternoon teleserye, “Wildflower”. JB
