Fans of actor John Lloyd Cruz were delighted after reports about his showbiz comeback made it to the headlines, following his appearance in the teaser trailer of the movie ‘Culion’ starring Iza Calzado, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, and Meryll Soriano.
In the teaser trailer, John Lloyd appeared towards the end of the video where he was seen staring afar while removing his hat, sparking speculations about his role in the movie.
However, in an SMS message he sent to ANCX, John Lloyd clarified that he will only have a cameo in the film and will be appearing on only one scene.
John Lloyd who is currently out of the country stated: “I thought including me in the teaser was preemptive. It was the opposite of what I actually requested and agreed on.”
“But as much as I am drawn to the idea of letting my work, of any kind, have its own life and take its own course in terms of output (unmindful of how it mutates, grows and sometimes gets diminished) I am also wary of misleading an audience. That wouldn’t be fair. Hence, I felt compelled to clarify my participation in the film,” he continued.
‘Culion’ which is submitted for consideration to this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) is written by Ricky Lee and directed by Alvin Yapan.
