MANILA — Elusive actor John Lloyd Cruz has become the subject of speculation anew, following the circulation of photos showing him apparently on a film set.
The photos, which are making the rounds among fan groups of Cruz on social media, sees the actor in costume as a ventriloquist and surrounded by a crowd while being filmed.
This wouldn’t be the first time Cruz has faced cameras since the announcement of his indefinite leave from showbiz in October 2017.
He was recently featured in an ad of a shawarma brand, which is expected to have a follow-up with his long-time onscreen partner Bea Alonzo, based on photos that similarly went viral a few months back.
Alonzo, in an interview, confirmed that she was indeed working on a project with Cruz, but was tight-lipped on whether it was for an ad, or their highly anticipated big-screen reunion.
Recent months have seen Cruz slowly returning to the limelight, after nearly two years of absence from the industry.
Despite his hiatus, Cruz has been a constant figure in headlines because of a low-key lifestyle distinct from his past leading-man image, and his new family with former co-star Ellen Adarna.
The latest batch of rumors, however, suggest the two are no longer together — but neither has confirmed this to be the case.
