Actress and singer Sunshine Cruz has signed with ALV Talent Circuit, a talent management company founded by Arnold Vegafria. On Sept. 14, Thursday, Cruz and Vegafria were joined by the press during an official contract signing event at Full Belly Craft Kitchen in Quezon City, Metro Manila.
During an interview, Vegafria said ALV Talent Circuit will repackage Cruz not just an actress but also as a singer and a product endorser. The "Wildflower" star has an upcoming product endorsement, which they cannot reveal yet, according to Vegafria.
Fans of Cruz may expect her to hold a concert in the near future. According to the ALT Talent Circuit founder, one of their dream projects is a concert with her and her cousins Donna Cruz, Geneva Cruz and Sheryl Cruz.
Sunshine is not the only Cruz under ALV Talent Circuit. Angelina Cruz, one of Sunshine’s three daughters, and Geneva are also signed with the talent management company.
Among Sunshine, Geneva and Angelina’s fellow ALV Talent Circuit artists are Billy Crawford, Jay R, Kris Lawrence, Iya Villania, Carla Abellana and Asian MMA star Mark "Mugen" Striegl. Miss World 1993 second runner-up Ruffa Gutierrez also signed with the talent management company on Sept. 15, Friday.

Now that Sunshine is 40 and a mother of three, she has some non-negotiables when it comes to accepting acting roles and projects. She said she may still do kissing scenes and bed scenes but she will not accept projects that may be too controversial such as an indie film about incest that she recently turned down.
Still, Sunshine is looking forward to starring in an indie film as Vegafria is also interested in working with young filmmakers. The last film Sunshine starred in was “Mang Kepweng Returns,” a comedy film starring Vhong Navarro and Kim Domingo.
On the small screen, Sunshine currently plays Camia Cruz in “Wildflower.” Among her co-stars in the ABS-CBN series are her uncle Tirso Cruz III, Maja Salvador, Aiko Melendez, Joseph Marco, Vin Abrenica, RK Bagatsing and Wendell Ramos.
