Inah De Belen is the newest kapuso who signed a contract with GMA7. Her dad John Estrada reacts on the idea of changing her screen name.Friday, August 12, 2016
Inah Estrada, eldest daughter of ex-couple John Estrada and Janice De Belen, has signed up a management contract with GMA Artist Center - the kapuso network's talent management arm to build its own roster of stars.
But instead using her father's last name, Inah decided to use De Belen as her last name. She explained that it was the network that gave her the idea.
“Actually GMA suggested that I use de Belen talaga. Kasi sa industry, ang dami ng Estrada so 'pag may mga nagtatanong sa akin kung anong pangalan ko, I say Inah Estrada. Ang maiisip nila is 'relative ka ba ni former President Joseph Estrada?'"
When asked about her father's reaction on changing her last name for a screen name, Inah answered “Of course my dad understands. May blessing naman siya. Aware naman siya na ang magiging screen name ko is Inah de Belen but my real name is Inah Estrada. Nothing will change that.”
Inah will be co-managed by Popoy Caritativo's Luminary Talent Management - the one handling her mom's career, Dennis Trillo, Tom Rodriguez, among others.
She will soon star in an afternoon soap opposite Jeric Gonzales and Jake Vargas. They will be joined by senior stars like Gladys Reyes, Ryan Eigenmann, and Epy Quizon.
