John Lloyd's bigger break is when he was casted in "Tabing Ilog", a Philippine adaptation of "Dawson's Creek" whre he won the Best Drama Actor in the 2001 PMPC Star Awards for TV. It was then followed by "Sa Sandaling Kailangan mo ako" as Daniel and "Sa Puso Ko Iingatan Ka" as Adrian Montecillo
John Lloyd Cruz is then again casted in "Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay" which runs from 2001 up to 2002. It is notable that this soap opera is the first team-up of the John Lloyd Cruz - Bea Alonzo love team. Another thing thing to note here is the awards of the said show - CMMA Best Drama Series and the PMPC Star Awards Best Primetime Drama Series, and the first local show to be nominated a finalist in the Best Drama Series category of the International Emmy Awards.

John Lloyd's success in Dubai is followed by "Close To You", "All About Love" and the monster hit "A Very Special Love" with Sarah Geronimo. The success of that film earned John Lloyd the distinction as the Philippines' Box Office King.
