James Reid, Nadine Lustre sign with ABS-CBN-A A +A
Thursday, August 28, 2014
YOUNG actor James Reid and leading lady Nadine Lustre are the latest names to ink a new network deal with ABS-CBN.
The "Talk Back And You're Dead" stars signed a two-year contract last Tuesday at the station's compound in Quezon City.
Present during the signing were VIVA Entertainment's Veronique and Vic del Rosario, ABS-CBN TV Production head Laurenti Dyogi and president and CEO Charo Santos-Concio.
The two are set to do several shows with the network, including a television series and music albums.
The Filipino-Australian actor said he is happy to be back to his mother network after a short hiatus in show business.
"I always hoped to be back here in ABS-CBN. I started here and it feels good to be home," Reid said.
To recall, the 21-year-old actor was hailed as the Big Winner in reality program "Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash Edition" back in 2010.
Lustre, on the other hand, is excited with the projects lined-up for them. She said she still could not believe that she is now a Kapamilya.
"It feels good to be part of a new family. It's not yet sinking in that I'm finally here," she said.
Reid and Lustre are lead stars in teen romantic comedy "Diary ng Panget," a film based on the best-selling novel of the same title. (Sunnex)
