In September, Palawan News reported that the actor flew from Manila to the popular resort destination of El Nido, Palawan with his manager and architect to take care of things related to the house he is building and his other businesses in the town.

The report added that John Lloyd and his companions followed safety protocols such as undergoing COVID-19 RT-PCR tests and observed a 14-day quarantine for their month-long stay.

Meanwhile, fans have also been sharing pics of John Lloyd who gamely posed for selfies with them.

Nevertheless, this is not the first time that the actor was caught doing what ordinary citizens do.

John Lloyd was also spotted riding a jeepney, buying durian at a fruit stand, eating balut along a sidewalk, all after taking an indefinite leave from showbiz in 2017 “to attend to personal matters.”

It was later on revealed that he and Cebuana actress Ellen Adarna were having a baby they would name Elias Modesto.

They have since broke up and are co-parenting, according to reports. John Lloyd spent most of the coronavirus lockdown in Cebu City to be close to his son. (READ: John Lloyd Cruz emerges from hiatus to thank COVID-19 frontliners for their service.)

The actor-on-leave also made a rare public appearance to extend help to a local barangay amid the COVID-19 enhanced community quarantine. (SPOTTED: John Lloyd Cruz visits Cebu barangay checkpoint to offer help.)

Despite the indefinite hiatus from showbiz, he managed to do an experimental reunion project with former love team partner Bea Alonzo.

It turned out their kilig online exchanges were a scripted performance of Antoinette Jadaone’s Love Team, a love story designed to be told in one of the most-used platforms, Instagram, in this time of quarantine.

The Unconfined Cinema was founded on the idea of exploring what else cinema could be, freeing our stories to be told outside of the traditional spaces and conceptual boundaries set by the last century of the medium. In this unprecedented time of quarantine, in a time when movie production is impossible, we found it especially pressing to find ways to tell our stories. “Love Team” is a love story – whether romantic or in its other forms – told entirely within Instagram. It is a story of our times. Love stories have always had their place in Filipino cinema, and we wanted to bring the feelings that those movies inspire to a platform that has become more relevant and utilised in this time of quarantine – social media, specifically Instagram. The use of social media creates all sorts of new possibilities for storytelling. This was a story told over two weeks, adapting and evolving to real-life events, integrating our genuine sentiments over the state that we’re in. This is a platform where we all share little bits of ourselves. Through our images, this curated list of memories, we reveal what it is we want the rest of the world to see. Using the various features of Instagram, we attempted to tell a story of two people reconnecting in a trying time; separated by distance, but united in their memories. We are in a culture where the usually distinct line between reality and make-believe blur. We started this story by stating that “any resemblance to persons, living or dead, is intentional.” And that remains true. It was the only way this was possible. The Unconfined Cinema invites filmmakers and artists to join us in exploring the possibilities of our cinema. Not just on Instagram, but on every stage imaginable. #unconfinedcinema
