The acclaimed actor lands the lead role of Julian, a handsome mechanic and single-dad who strives to give his son a better future and to even find his one true love.  

The 38-year-old was not afraid to admit that this new adventure in the Kapuso network challenged him.

“Siguro, mas malaking challenge na nasa bagong bakuran tayo. It’s challenging kasi nangangapa kaming grupo. Kaya napakaswerte namin dahil iyong assistance, paggabay, at pagtulong ng GMA sa amin ay talagang hindi matatawaran,” he told the press during the show’s online media conference.

Cruz was thankful to his new home network for giving him and his co-stars the opportunity to work even with the ongoing pandemic.  

He shared: “Yung opportunity na galing sa GMA executives, araw-araw namin ipinagpapasalamat. Sa bawat araw na nasa loob kami ng bubble, mayroon kaming opportunity na makapagtrabaho and we can all move forward from the current situation of our nation.” 

Not just a lead actor on set, Cruz is also a co-producer and creative consultant on the program. When asked what was the biggest hurdle in co-producing a sitcom, he shared it was coming up with something fresh every day for their episodes.  

“Mahirap actually bumuo ng bagong kwento. I think that’s the most challenging part every episode. Siyempre kailangan binigyan mo yung audience natin, yung ating mas matalinong audience sa panahon ngayon ng angkop sa panlasa nila, yung akma dun sa tema ng mga pangyayari sa panahon ngayon,” he explained.  

Aside from Cruz, Happy ToGetHer features a star-studded cast led by Miles Ocampo, Jayson Gainza, Ashley Rivera, Jenzel Angeles, Eric Nicolas, Janus Del Prada, Kleggy Abaya, Vito Quizon, Leo Bruno, Wally Waley and Carmi Martin. 

Happy ToGetHer airs Sunday before Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho on GMA.
