Judy Ann Santos hopes her movie project with Coco Martin will push through


060911-juday_main.jpgFans of Judy Ann Santos continue to wait for her to become active again on television and in movies. The actress is preparing for her newest TV project, ABS-CBN’s reality show Junior Master Chef where she will serve, for the first time in her career, as host. However, in terms of other projects, Judy Ann said her comeback is still dependent upon discussion with different producers and the material to be offered to her.

As early as now there are talks that the Young Superstar is set to star in a movie opposite Coco Martin. Judy Ann clarified that the said project is still under discussion. Nevertheless, the actress expressed her admiration for Coco as an actor. “Hindi ko man siya kilala personally, wala man kaming direct connection, alam kong pinaghirapan niya kung ano man ‘yung narating niya ngayon. Nakikita ko ‘yung pagka-intense niya bilang aktor kaya gusto ko rin maranasang makatrabaho siya.

Judy Ann was further flattered when told that Coco looks up to her as an actress. In return, she praised the actor for having achieved so much at a young age, one of which is being recently named as Aktor ng Dekada by the Gawad Urian. Judy Ann said, “Para sa akin naman kung talagang mahusay ang isang tao wala namang imposible. Nakikita ko kay Coco kung paano niya pinagbubuti ‘yung trabaho niya, magaganda ‘yung mga projects niya.”

She promised that once the movie with Coco is finalized, she will quickly fill everyone in on the details. For now, all that is in her mind is her first venture into hosting with JMC, produced but the same team that brought us Pinoy Big Brother and The Biggest Loser: Pinoy Edition. How does the Filipino version of JMC differ from the other ones shown abroad? Judy Ann explained, “Siyempre may mga ginagawa sa abroad na hindi mo pwedeng gawin dito sa Pilipinas kasi we have a different culture. Itong version natin for sure makaka-relate ang maraming Pilipino habang nanonood sa mga bata.”

JMC Pinoy Edition is already in the process of trimming down 60 young hopefuls to the official contestants who will make it to the competition proper. The 60 kids from all over the Philippines were recently gathered together in general assembly held at ABS-CBN’s Dolphy Theater last May 23. Judy Ann talked about how she is very much excited about meeting these kids and bonding with them over culinary activities. “Gusto kong makita ‘yung reaction nila kapag nakita na nila ‘yung kitchen. Masarap kasi sa pakiramdam ng isang bata na mahilig magluto tapos makakakita ng isang professional kitchen. Magandang experience ‘yun para sa mga bata. Feeling ko magiging super close ako sa mga bata kasi almost everyday kaming magkakasama sa taping.”
