Versatile and respected actress Manilyn Reynes remains a loyal Kapuso as she renewed last May 18 her exclusive contract with GMA Network, Inc.
Manilyn said she is happy to continue her journey as a Kapuso which has been her home network for many years, “Kasi po ang Kapuso talagang may puso ika nga. Hindi lamang sa kung ano pa man ang tinitingnan ng tao, it’s because it’s true. Kaya nga po, nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon ulit na maging Kapuso, kaya sabi ko, magta-trabaho ako ng buong pagmamahal at buong puso dahil ako ay certified Kapuso.”
The seasoned character actress added, “Actually yung first show na sinalihan ko nung 10-years-old ako, dito sa GMA. From that time on, every now and then, may show ako dito hanggang sa nag-That’s Entertainment ako, and the rest is history.”
Manilyn is currently part of the award-winning family sitcom Pepito Manaloto and the top-rating primetime series Meant To Be. Aside from these shows, she has been part of numerous GMA programs including Bakekang, Kwento ni Lola Basyang, All My Life, First Time, Destiny Rose, and Once Upon A Kiss.
Present in the contract signing were GMA Entertainment TV’s Senior Vice President Lilybeth G. Rasonable, GMA Senior Assistant Vice President for Business Development Department II Janine Piad-Nacar, Senior Program Manager for ETV Bang Arespacochaga and ETV Program Managers Enri Calaycay and Cecille de Guzman.
During the contract signing, Manilyn revealed that she really enjoys playing the role of Amelia ‘Mamay’ Bendiola in Meant To Be and she is very grateful for the netizens and viewers’ overwhelming support since it premiered in January this year.
“Nakakatuwa talaga yung support at love na ipinapakita ng ating manonood. Nakakaaliw sila pati na rin yung mga tweets at messages na ipinapadala nila. We are so happy dahil hindi lang pampakilig ang ginagawa natin gabi-gabi, kundi may lesson din tayo na naibabahagi tungkol sa pagmamahalan at tungkol sa family.”
Meanwhile, Rasonable said that she is very pleased with the new chapter of Manilyn’s career in GMA since she is one of the assets of the Network, “Manilyn started here in GMA. Dito na siya nagdalaga at dito na rin siya nakabuo ng pamilya niya. At hanggang ngayon ay loyal pa rin siya sa GMA. How can you not be happy with that? At si Manilyn kasi ang gaan-gaan katrabaho, napakabait na tao at napakadaling katrabaho bilang artista. So siguro, nadadala rin niya yung gaan sa trabaho and it shows in her work. She is also very versatile. She can do comedy, she can make you cry, and she is a great singer, that’s why her shows are successful.”
