Julia Montes is flattered about being called the next Claudine Barretto


080611-julia-main.jpgKathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes are about to conquer the big screen via the upcoming Star Cinema offering Way Back Home. During the press conference for the film, Julia said that the story of the movie is very different from Mara Clara. “Sa movie namin, ibang-iba siya sa Mara Clara, ibang iba pong problemang pamilya ang ipapakita. Tina-tackle dito ‘yung forgiveness and acceptance ng magkapatid at sa family.”

Fans will still get to see the clash between Kathryn and Julia which became a hit because of Mara Clara. Though she currently doesn’t encounter any problems with playing kontrabida, Julia shared that she also wants to be given the chance to do other kinds of roles in the future. “Siyempre, magiging masaya po ako kung magta-try rin po ako ng ibang characters.”

With her impressive acting talent plus her mestiza beauty, the 16 year-old has been dubbed as the next Claudine Barretto. "Idol ko po si Ms. Claudine. Kung masundan ko man po yung yapak niya, sobrang saya ko po. Dream come true ko po ‘yun.”

She was further complimented for possessing the looks and height fit for leading ladies in the near future just like what Claudine experienced in her showbiz career. “Talaga po? Ano ba yan? Naku, po, speechless po ako, masaya po ako. Hindi ko po sinasadya dahil idol ko lang po si Ms. Claudine kaya natural lang na lumalabas. O kaya may traits po kami na magkapareho.

However, Julia admitted that she now feels very pressured because of this comparison to Claudine. “Siyempre po, malaking pressure po kasi mahirap naman pong i-compare sa isang aktres. Siguro po sila lang po yung inspirasyon ngayon, sila po yung pini-peg kumbaga.” Julia mentioned Anak and Dahil Mahal na Mahal Kita as her favorite Claudine movies.
