Rayver Cruz Wants to Follow John Lloyd Cruz's Footsteps

Though not related by blood, Rayver Cruz and John Lloyd Cruz share the same surname.

Both are young, and are part of the country's small entertainment industry.

But Rayver, known for his dancing skills, wants to take this connection a notch higher -- he aspires to be known as a drama actor, just like Box Office King John Lloyd.

"Oo naman, lahat sa amin gusto 'yung serious role. Kaya nga pinasok namin ito para balang araw ma-achieve namin 'yung maging successful actor," Rayver said.

"Like John Lloyd Cruz, ang hirap, diba? Pero malay mo? Mangangarap na lang eh di dapat 'yung solid na."

Rayver said he wants to follow in John Lloyd's footsteps. In an interview with abs-cbnNEWS.com, the actor-dancer said he has been a fan of John Lloyd since he was little.

"Alam mo magaling talaga, magaling si Kuya Lloydie," he said.

Currently, Rayver is part of ABS-CBN's hit afternoon series "Reputasyon" with his real-life sweetheart Cristine Reyes.

He said he is happy that "Reputasyon" is receiving good reviews partly because of his performance in the show.
