ALDEN Richards is a name that needs no introduction. With an impressive thread of local and international recognitions, box-office hits, top-rating series, and chart-topping albums, the Kapuso actor has proven worthy of his title as Asia’s Multimedia Star.

On Oct. 15, Alden renewed his contract with GMA Network, proudly continuing his more than a decade-long journey as a Kapuso.

“I’m a homegrown Kapuso and that’s something I’m very proud of because my dreams came true with GMA’s help. It’s an honor to be part of people’s lives and I get to do it because of GMA,” Alden shared.

He added that he has always considered GMA his second home.

“I’d like to celebrate this because every year with GMA is a milestone for me and it makes me feel that I am in the right place. It’s a huge honor to be a part of GMA for 10 years. Here’s to another 10 years, and I’m really looking forward to more beautiful projects and opportunities with the Kapuso network.”

Last June, “Alden’s Reality: The Virtual Reality Concert” earned a finalist slot at the prestigious 2021 New York Festivals (NYF) “World’s Best TV and Films” Competition.

On top of being a trusted brand ambassador, Alden has been recognized as one of the 10 Most Influential Celebrities of the Decade at the 10th EdukCircle Awards.

He was recently given a plaque of appreciation for his participation in the benefit concert, “Awit sa Pandemya,” at the 12th Star Awards for Music, and “Movie Actor of the Year” at the recently held 36th Star Awards for Movies by the Philippine Movie Press Club.

Alden is currently gearing up for the return of GMA’s top-rating series “The World Between Us” on GMA Telebabad on Nov. 15. Fans are also looking forward to his exciting movie team-up with fellow Kapuso actress Bea Alonzo. (PR)
