Sunshine Cruz is grateful and happy for a second chance for her acting career. The actress is now part of ABS-CBN’s afternoon series Love Thy Woman.
She plays Kai, the mother of Kim Chiu’s character in the Filipino-Chinese culture inspired series.
In a lengthy Instagram post last Sunday, the actress shared why she left the limelight before.
“I left showbiz year 2000 to focus sa binubuong family. I would have short appearances once in a while. Dapat ‘yung guest lang or mamamatay kaagad ang role but returned full time sa acting year 2013. Thankfully, I was given another chance in showbiz since then. I was able to provide for my little children (na ngayon ay malapit na akong abutan dahil ang lalaking bata),” Cruz said.
The actress felt overwhelmed by the new opportunities she received and thankful for the people who put their trust in her.
“Nakakatuwang isipin na kung kailan ako nagka-edad, siyang pasok ng maraming opportunities and blessings. Kaya lubos-lubos ang aking pasasalamat. I am forever grateful to those who trust me still. I promise to always be a better version of myself. Always thankful sa tiwala, pagmamahal at pagtanggap sa akin ng buong-buo. Hindi lahat ng artista nabibigyan ng another chance but thank God I got mine,” she added.
Cruz started her showbiz career at the Kapamilya network though she has worked with ABS-CBN and GMA Network throughout her career.
Her last project with ABS-CBN was 2019’s Hiwaga ng Kambat while she was last seen on GMA Network in the 2018 series Kapag Nahati ang Puso.
