Star Cinema. Dun sa una kami ni
Julia ang magkasama. Pero dun sa isa wala pang nasasabi sa amin. Ngayon ang

Jerry Sineneng na. Iniba na lahat.
The former Goin’ Bulilit
star still couldn’t believe that she is now being dubbed as an up-and-coming dramatic actress. “Dati sa Goin’ Bulilit kami ni

big break namin ni
Julia. Dito namin naipakita na kaya rin naming umarte. Ito talaga ‘yung matagal naming ipinagdadasal kaya nung dumating, talagang ibinigay na namin lahat.
Viewers who loved the endless catfights between Kathryn and Julia on Mara Clara
can still expect more clashes in their upcoming movie. But Kathryn was quick to clarify that contrary to their roles, she and Julia are best friends in real life. “From the start friends naman kami. ‘Yung mga tao iniisip nila na pati sa totoong buhay magkaaway kami ni
