Julia Montes talks about her first love scene with Coco Martin in 'Walang Hanggan'


011212-julia_main.jpgSixteen-year-old Julia Montes admitted that she has been getting a lot of negative comments on Twitter because of her team-up with Coco Martin, who is 13 years her senior. But she implored people to give her a chance to prove herself as an actress in ABS-CBN’s latest primetime soap, Walang Hanggan.

Nagwo-worry din ako kasi iba-iba yung opinion ng tao. Kung yung iba nagagalingan sila dahil na-portray ko yung role ni Katherina, may iba na against kasi bata nga ako. Pero sana naman maintindihan nila yung side ko kasi gusto ko din talaga i-improve yung craft ko. Iba yung acting ko dito,” she said in an interview after the grand press con of Walang Hanggan, Tuesday, January 10.

Based on the Emily Bronte’s novel Wuthering Heights, the series will bring to life the passionate but doomed love between Katherina (Julia) and Daniel (Coco). Asked to describe her first love scene with Coco, Julia said that it was really intense but he made sure that she wouldn’t feel awkward at the time.

Talagang kinakabahan ako, nanginginig ako ng literal. Pero bago nag-take, nagbibiruan kasi kami na ako daw ang mag-guide sa kanya. Kaya wala talaga kaming ilangan at mas madali para sa amin umarte. Tsaka inisip din naming na ginagawa namin yun para sa show so naitawid naman naming ng maganda yung eksena.”

Julia added that it helps that she’s emotionally prepared for the project. “Kasi sa age ko, masasabi ko na medyo mature din ako magisip, medyo naging factor din yun. And nanonood din ako ng ibang films. And siguro yung lahat ng kilig na eksena dito, yun din ang dream ng babae na mangyari sa kanya sa totoong buhay. And siguro nagkaroon na ako ng idea sa bawat nangyayari sa character ko na what if ako yung nandudun.

While she’s not ready for a serious commitment at this point in her career, Julia revealed that she’s the type of girl who’d fall for a man much older than her. “Masasabi kong oo kasi mature ako magisip, so gusto ko mas mature sa akin magisip. Gusto ko tutulungan ako mag-grow as a person. And sa relationship din, gusto ko hindi ako yung tutulong sa kanya paangat, kundi siya yung tutulong sa akin.”

But does she agree that Coco is boyfriend material? “Kung titignan mo naman siya oo, maalaga siya, at mabait naman. Ang best quality niya yung pagiging maalaga niya on and off cam—maalalay sa role, sa kilos… Tsaka ‘pag naka-skirt ako sasabihan ako niyan, ‘O yung upo mo.’ Ganon siya.
