Liza Soberano on new manager James Reid: 'He has a lot to offer'

Liza Soberano is nothing but grateful for her new family under the management of James Reid and his record label Careless Music.

In an interview with the press during her contract signing on Monday, June 20, the "My Ex and Whys" actress shared what it was like working with James as a manager in her first few weeks with Careless.

"It’s weird because he’s my contemporary. I always saw him as a co-actor or co-artist of some sort, so whenever we work together, it’s like I didn’t take him too seriously. But honestly, he has a lot to offer," she said of the actor.

Liza was also "surprised" to see how hands-on and professional James is in terms of managing her career.

"He’s very smart. He goes through all my contracts and really guides me on how to go through them which I was very surprised to find out about him," she said.

"He has a great perspective on how to like go about things, where to check my career, and everything so I respect him for doing the research and everything," she continued. "We’re trying to understand what it is that I’m on and how I want to express it."

On top of it, the actress added that Careless has also been very supportive in her goal of exploring different opportunities as an artist.

"He’s just very supportive of the way I want it to be because that’s what Careless is all about, giving the artist the creative freedom to take control of their own careers and do things the way they want," she said.

Liza was officially introduced as an artist of Careless on June 20, weeks after the actress' former talent manager Ogie Diaz revealed that she will be managed by James and his team starting June.

In the past month, she was spotted attending various events in Los Angeles, including the Gold House Gala, the Asia Society Southern California 2022 Annual Gala, and the Identity 2022.
