The phenomenal love team of James Reid and Nadine Lustre, or JaDine to their adoring fans, is now officially a Kapamilya! After the stellar success of their movies, Diary Ng Panget and Talk Back and You’re Dead, James and Nadine signed an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN on Tuesday afternoon. The two stars are set to work on a new TV series and albums among other projects.
James was named as the Big Winner of Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash in 2010 and has appeared in several ABS-CBN shows after PBB but didn’t get the popularity he now enjoys until starring in the hit teen romantic comedy film, Diary ng Panget, alongside Nadine early this year.
For her part, Nadine started her showbiz career at the age of nine when she hosted a children’s show on RPN 9 in 2002. She eventually became part of an all-girl pop group and appeared in various shows in different networks. Her biggest break came when she was cast to portray the title character in the film adaptation of the best-selling Wattpad novel, Diary ng Panget.
After the box-office success of Diary ng Panget, James and Nadine were reunited in Talk Back and You’re Dead, another film based on a best-selling book. The success of their second film outing catapulted James and Nadine further to fame, establishing them as bankable stars and a love team to beat.
