Julia Montes says she's comfortable working with Enrique Gil and Enchong Dee


070213-julia_main.jpgJulia Montes is determined to prove her worth as ABS-CBN’s Teleserye Sweetheart. After her remarkable performance in Walang Hanggan, she’s excited to be back on primetime TV as the lead star of Muling Buksan Ang Puso along with Enrique Gil and Enchong Dee. “Nag-start na kami magtaping. Kaming tatlo ang magkakasama sa set. Para akong first timer na artista kasi iniisip mo pa yung natural na gesture ng character mo. Unlike kapag mid-season na gamay mo na talaga kaya pupunta ka na sa set na ikaw na mismo yung character. Eto inaaral mo pa lang,” she said in an interview with Push.com.ph during their cast pictorial last Thursday, June 27.

What makes this project different is that she’ll be playing a role that suits her age this time around. “Ang name ko dito ay Sarah at ang ka-love team ko si Enrique. Maganda yung rapport ng character namin sa simula. Hindi siya love agad. Meron siyang growth. Yung type ng personality niya boyish na palaban na babae. Nagtatrabaho siya. Yung age namin sa simula high schooler kaya na-excite ako na young ako. Kasi sa Walang Hanggan, kahit bata yung character, nakalimutan ng viewers na bata ako. So eto more on young love.”

Julia happens to be good friends with Enrique off cam, which makes it easier for them to work together in the soap. “Sabi ko talaga sa kanya, ‘Brad, magkaka-love team na tayo.’ Hindi na kami naiilang. Sa aming tatlo, kahit anong ipagawa mo okay sa amin. Hindi kami nag-e-effort na kailangan pakiligin yung tao. Go with the flow lang. Hindi masyado scripted.”

Although she has gotten used to being romantically linked to her on screen partners, Julia maintained that she doesn’t have to fall in love with Enrique to add credibility to her acting. “Para sa akin normal lang na i-link siya sa akin. Pero enjoy muna sa work. Yun naman sinasabi ko na ang dapat abangan hindi yung personal life kundi mismong character namin. Hindi pwede pagsamahin yung totoo at sa TV. Abangan na lang nila kami bilang si Sarah at Francis.” 

At any rate, Julia’s more focused on establishing herself as a certified dramatic actress in the biz. “Siyempre dream at goal ko yun kaya kailangan ko magpursige para pag sinabihan ako ng ganon deserve ko talaga at worth it naman talaga. Every work naman na ibinibigay sa akin is an opportunity to learn. So in the future mabigyan man ako ng title at least alam ko sa sarili ko na deserve ko.”
