John Lloyd Cruz's Showbiz Comeback Might Be Sooner Than You Think
Piolo Pascual and Bea Alonzo have hinted at his "pagbabalik."
(SPOT.ph) It's been a while since we last saw John Lloyd Cruz. The actor took an "indefinite leave of absence" from showbiz so he could attend to "personal matters" in October 2017. But since then, eagle-eyed fans have been waiting for updates about the actor. Elias Modesto, his son with Ellen Adarna, was born in June 2018. But if posts on his Facebook page—as well as Piolo Pascual and Bea Alonzo's Instagram accounts—are any indication, Cruz is ready for his showbiz comeback.
On his Instagram account on April 2, Pascual posted a photo of a shadowy figure that resembles Cruz, along with the logo of a well-known franchise and the phrase, "Ang Pagbabalik." Pascual says, "If that's you, I’m happy [because you're] my brother." He adds, "Welcome to the family!" referencing the brand that he also endorses.
Alonzo also posted about the actor on her Instagram account. This time, it's a video of a man in a cap that starts off saying, "May nagbabalik..." But the biggest hint that Cruz is the man in the video is Alonzo's caption: "Poy, ikaw ba 'yan?" Poy, of course, comes from Popoy, the name of Cruz's character in One More Chance and A Second Chance, both of which he starred in with Alonzo.
And if fans still aren't sure, Cruz also posted the photo and the video that Pascual and Alonzo shared on his verified Facebook page. We'll just have to wait and see until a new ad rolls out. Until then, fans can stick to rewatching Cruz's classic movies and falling in love with his memorable roles.
