LOOK: John Lloyd Cruz meets with ABS-CBN chief Carlo Katigbak
John Lloyd Cruz was spotted in a meeting with ABS-CBN President and CEO Carlo Katigbak, sparking speculations that the network is setting up a project with the actor.
Cruz met with Katigbak apparently with Marilen Roa Nuñez of Crown Artist Management, who now handles the actor’s career. The network’s chief can be seen putting his arms around Cruz and Nuñez’s shoulders in a photo on the publicist’s Instagram Stories on Sunday, July 18.
Nuñez only accompanied the photo with white heart emoji, not revealing the reason behind Cruz and Katigbak’s meeting. Crown Artist Management, headed by actress Maja Salvador, started handling Cruz’s showbiz career last May.
Cruz and Katigbak’s meeting sparked speculations that the actor may be returning to ABS-CBN, which handled his career for over 20 years.
“Sana hindi pa huli ang lahat at babalik din si [Maja Salvador] and Sir John Lloyd Cruz sa ABS-CBN!” one @DaqueCristine said. (I hope it’s not too late for Maja Salvador and Sir John Lloyd Cruz to return to ABS-CBN.)
