Also renewing his contract as an ABS-CBN artist is Pamilya Ko actor JC De Vera. When asked about what his fans can expect from him this year, JC answered, “They can expect a more diverse, more well-rounded JC. I’ve done drama, action, and now I’m still doing comedy. For this new contract, I’m sure ABS-CBN will still give me more challenges, which I like.”
Meanwhile, actor-model Kit Thompson shared how thankful he is on signing his first-ever three-year exclusive contract with the Kapamilya network, describing himself as “privileged” for the opportunity.
