Jaclyn Jose has shocked fans when she revealed that she will be retiring from acting, after decades of being in the showbiz industry.
The award-winning actress told fans about her plans to retire through a now-deleted Instagram post today, Sept. 1. Despite being removed from Jose’s page, the announcement has since been reshared by netizens, as well as GMA Network’s official Instagram page.
“I am retiring… maraming salamat po (thank you very much),” Jose said without elaborating.
Jose admitted through comments in the said post that retiring is a painful experience for her, then stressed that she decided to do so since she loves her children Andi Eigenmann and Gwen Garimond Ilagan Guck.

Jose, who has been an actress as early as the 1980s, recently appeared in the GMA series “Bolera” in which she portrayed the mother of Kylie Padilla’s character Joni.
She also starred in various other films and TV series including “Serbis,” “Tuhog,” “Patay na si Hesus,” “The Cure,” “Nagsimula sa Puso” and Brillante Mendoza’s “Ma’ Rosa,” for which she won the best actress award at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. /ra
