Rhian Ramos renews contract with GMA Network
Versatile actress Rhian Ramos reaffirmed ties with GMA Network as she renewed her exclusive contract with the network last February 19.
Present during the contract signing were GMA Senior Vice President for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable, GMA Vice President for Drama Productions Redgie Acuña-Magno, GMA Vice President for Business Development Department III Darling de Jesus-Bodegon, GMA Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara, GMA Assistant Vice President for Drama Productions Cheryl Ching-Sy, Senior Program Manager Charles Koo, and Rhian’s manager Michael Uycoco.
Following her string of successful projects and impressive portrayal of diverse roles, Rhian conveys her gratitude and loyalty to the network saying, “I feel so lucky that I get to live my dream and continue to live my dream with the station that supports me and it feels so right because GMA is my home, they’re my family. I feel comfortable here. I feel well-guided and taken care of. I’ve been here for 15 years already and loyalty is a value that I really appreciate in others and I also try to emulate it myself. I feel that GMA has also been so loyal to me through the years with all the opportunities and guidance they’ve given me.”
Having first graced the small screen in 2006 with her acting debut in “Captain Barbell” and further establishing her name in the industry after her iconic role in “Stairway To Heaven,” Rhian has truly evolved into a fine actress. At present, she is one of the lead stars of the top-rating primetime series “Love of My Life” where she plays the role of Kelly Generoso.
The talented Kapuso actress shared that she is likewise excited to do more hosting projects in the future. “I am looking forward to doing more hosting. I’ve done many hosting shows in GMA before, but as I’m getting older and as I grow, I feel much more comfortable and confident with myself that it’s really fun to just experience something with the audience kasi that’s what hosts do.”
Meanwhile, Rasonable recalled Rhian’s humble beginnings with the Kapuso Network and expressed her admiration on her growth as an artist.“’Yung television career niya, dito talaga nag-umpisa sa GMA. We saw her first in a TV ad and then we looked for her. Since she was 16, she has been with GMA and we consider her our GMA baby. Over the years, it makes me proud na makitang nag-grow talaga siya bilang isang artista. We try our best na higitan kung ano ‘yung nagawa na namin at bigyan ang ating mga aktor ng roles that will challenge them more and improve their craft.”
