Former ABS-CBN actress Myrtle Sarrosa is now a Kapuso. She signed an exclusive contract with GMA Artist Center today, February 21.
In a report of GMA Network, the actress and cosplayer said she couldn’t believe that she’ll now work with GMA Network. “Kasi bata pa lang ako, nanonood na talaga ako ng iba’t-ibang fantaserye sa GMA and ngayon na first time ko nakapasok dito sa GMA building, surreal pa siya sa ‘kin. Pero I’m so excited sa mga mangyayari dito,” she said.
Present during the signing event were Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara and GMA Artist Center Senior Talent Manager Daryl Zamora.
