Although TJ Trinidad claims that he is not really an exclusive kapamilya talent, he expresses his gratitude to the management of ABS-CBN for giving him good projects where he made a name for himself – Basta’t Kasama Kita, Krystala, Da Adventures of Pedro Penduko, Hiram Na Mukha, Rounin and Walang Kapalit.
“I was never under contract with ABS, it’s per project also. Kaya medyo matagal ako na nagkatrabaho uli after Prinsesa ng Banyera, kasi we just had to make sure that everything was okay. Si Tita Annabelle ang nakipag-usap sa ABS-CBN, nag-meeting kami and all that,” said TJ.
“It’s not like bigla na lang kaming lumipat nang walang abiso. Nagpaalam kami nang maayos. We prioritized ABS-CBN first. Eventually, nagpaalam kami nang maayos at nagbigay sila ng green light. Ako, I owe it to the management of ABS. Kami naman, we don’t wanna burn bridges. I don’t think it’s fair for people to speculate. I’ve proven my loyalty to ABS when I was there,” he added.
TJ has worked with GMA before via the Valentine movie “The Promise” topbilled by Angel Locsin and Richard Gutierrez. TJ said he was very happy when he did the said GMA Films Movie because the working atmosphere was nice.
TJ Trinidad will soon be seen in the Richard Gutierrez starrer “Zorro” where he will play Zorro’s nemesis.
He also change managers from June Rufino to Annabelle Rama.
