Screen actor Benjamin Alves renewed his ties to GMA Network by signing another management contract on Nov. 12.
Present in the contract-signing were GMA Senior Vice President for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable, GMA Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara, GMA Artist Center Assistant Vice President and Head for Talent Imaging and Marketing Unit Simoun Ferrer, GMA Artist Center Senior Talent Manager Daryl Zamora, and Benjamin’s co-manager and Empire PH President Jonas Gaffud.
Benjamin, who started his career as a Kapuso in 2012, expressed his gratitude for all the support he received from GMA all these years.
He said, “This has always been my home, I always felt at home here from the time that I started, never po akong nag-isip or nag-doubt na that I really feel like I belong here. From the start, when I signed my first contract, they never made me feel like I wasn’t welcomed or part of the family and that means a lot. I think I want to show that appreciation by doing well with the shows that they’re giving me and to stay loyal to the Network.”
Apart from exhibiting his acting caliber in various Kapuso programs, Benjamin is also an inspiration to the young generation.
Being the GMA Network Excellence Awards (GNEA) ambassador for four years now, he sees this platform to advocate his passion for learning and through this, he continues to discover more of the Filipino youth’s exemplary performance in academics and leadership, and to inspire them on social responsibility.
