There is no doubt that Dingdong Dantes is now at the peak of his career, which was greatly boosted by the hit movies he did with Star Cinema, ‘Dalaw’ and ‘Segunda Mano.’
Both movies won Dantes the best actor awards.
He said he consulted his family about renewing his contract and then he asked for a sign from the Lord while they were vacationing in Balesin Island in Quezon Province.
It was so hot but it suddenly rained and he took it as the Lord’s approval for him to renew his contract with GMA7.
The actor has been with GMA for 15 years now, which is almost half of my lifetime (he’s 33), and it is very important for him that they were always there to support him when he was just starting to dream.
They were always there helping him fulfill his dreams.
That support is beyond just being a company, a network and just a house that holds his talent, but a home.
He considers GMA as his home where his heart truly belongs.
How much is his new contract worth? Is he now the highest paid Kapuso actor?
He does not know about that and it is a classified information.
His manager (Perry Lansigan) will be in a better position to answer that.
For him he is happy with his first show in that new contract, ‘Genesis’, a big-budgeted sci-fi thriller with Rhian Ramos and Lorna Tolentino.
He pledges to give a scholarship program to support the education of 12 poor but deserving students.
Since his contract is for five years, that means he will be 38 when it expires.
By then, he should be married to Marian Rivera.
GMA approves of this, if ever, they are ready to support Dong.
