Rayver looked back on his early days at GMA and felt nostalgic seeing familiar faces. “Sa una medyo nahiya akong pumasok, pero nung nakita ko na yung mga tao, and winelcome nila ako tapos may mga nakita pa akong kakilala ko, na-excite na ako,” shared Rayver.
Early on in his showbiz career, Rayver’s shows included Best Friends, followed by his iconic 5 and Up stint and comedy series starring Joey De Leon entitled Kiss Muna.

He quips on the details of his character, “Ako si Gavin sa show, at first time kong gagawin ang role na pag-aagawan ng dalawang babae so, napaka-gwapo ng character ko.”
Meanwhile, Rasonable also feels excited to work with the new Kapuso star, “We are very happy to welcome Rayver back to GMA, where he started. He will be starting to work on a soap and of course, we will continue to give him projects that will showcase his many talents.”
