Actor and dancer Rayver Cruz if officially now a Kapuso artist again. The 29-year-old actor signed his contract with GMA 7 this Thursday morning in September 6. After 18 years of working on the other network, Rayver is now back to where he really began his career in the showbiz industry.
Not everyone knows that Rayver used to be a child star at the Kapuso network. When he was just 11 years old, he became a part of the show “Kiss Muna” in 2000. On the show, Rayver worked with celebrities like Joey de Leon, Ara Mina, and Jomari Yllana to name a few.
He also became one of the casts of the ‘90s informative program “5 and Up.” Rayver then worked with Maxene Magalona, Atom Araullo, and Chynna Ortaleza among others. Then in 2004, he decided to sign a contract with the Kapamilya network under Star Magic as his talent management agency. Rayver’s last project with ABS-CBN was the drama fantasy series “Bagani.”
Rayver personally said goodbye to his co-workers on the Kapamilya Network. Now that Rayver is back with GMA, there are a few Kapuso artists who want to welcome the actor too. One of them is young actress Bianca Umali. Bianca said she already knew Rayver and his family even before she was just a little girl. She also shared that they used to be gym buddies.
Another Kapuso actor wants to welcome Rayver to the network. It is the newbie Kapuso Manolo Pedrosa. Like Rayver, Manolo also came from the Kapamilya network before transferring to GMA. Manolo was a former Pinoy Big Brother contestant. Just two months ago, he signed his contract with Kapuso.
Surely, there are also two other Kapuso artists who want to give Rayver a warm welcome. One is his older brother Rodjun Cruz and lastly, his rumored girlfriend Janine Gutierrez. Fans of Rayver Cruz are definitely excited to see the actor in his upcoming projects with GMA. We hope we get to see him work with the mentioned artists close to his heart.
