When asked if Julia Montes has already closed her doors on Enchong Dee, the actress was quick to respond, “Wala namang nagsarang puso. Kasi siyempre ‘yun nga wala naman kasi sa aming naputol. ‘Yun lang nagka-ilangan lang naman. ‘Yun lang naman ang naging problema.”
Julia stressed that it was the lack of communication that caused their indifference to one another; There was no third party involved. “Naging busy ako, naging busy siya, nagka-tour, nagka-soap. Kumbaga ‘yung communication ang nag-cause eh. Wala namang involved na ibang tao.”
The young actress revealed that they already have rebuilt their friendship now that they are working together in ABS-CBN’s upcoming teleserye Muling Buksan ang Puso. “Good thing nga because of this project nawala kung ano man ‘yung naging ilangan sa amin noon. ‘Yun ang nawala at ayon lagi naming sinasabi wala naman talagang nagbago, ‘yung ilang, yun ‘yung unang-unang nawala,” she remarked.
Now that the issue is behind them, Julia said she is staying focused on her new teleserye, which according to her is far different from her previous soaps. “Iba kasi ‘yung sa Walang Hanggan, iba ‘yung dimension dito. Kumbaga dito more on teenage love. Maraming kilig, love na teenage love, ‘yung normal sa age namin, ‘yung pattern sa age namin,” she commented.
Julia relayed that she is giving her character in this teleserye a different take. “Siyempre bagong karakter, paano namin aatakihin together, ‘yun ‘yung dapat nilang abangan kasi medyo mature ‘yung atake namin, hindi typical ‘yung makikita nila. Kumbaga ibang dimension,” she commented.
Julia is set to star with Enrique Gil as well in Muling Buksan Ang Puso. “Siyempre panibago naman na magkakasama kami and as love team na ‘to at hindi na ‘to parang barkada lang. Kasi ang role lagi naming tatlo ay laging magkakabarkada, ngayon iba na,” she commented. She never thought that they would work altogether on such roles so she’s thankful for the chance given to them. “Kaya tinanong ko, ‘Seryoso po, talaga kami po?’ Kaya thankful sa another opportunity na ibinigay sa amin ng ABS-CBN”, she said.
