After seven long years, Judy Ann Santos is set to star once again in an episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya. The actress will be part of the Mother’s Day special of the drama anthology, sharing that her episode will be packed with heavy drama scenes.
“Una kasi Mother’s Day special siya, it’s really a story about a mother na hinanap ang apat na anak. Special kasi after seven years ngayon ako ulit gagawa ng isang heavy drama na episode and at the same time medyo nakaka-putol litid yata ‘tong episode na ‘to. Ihanda niyo ang mga tuwalya, ‘yan lang ang masasabi ko talaga,” she said.
Juday remarked that this is one of her most challenging roles to date. “Oo talaga kasi I must say na ito yata ‘yung isang buong araw na ako ay iyak ng iyak ng iyak, papunta na ako sa pagkakataong wala na akong nararamdaman.
Aside from headlining an MMK episode, the actress is also set to star in an upcoming teleserye alongside Richard Yap titled Someone To Watch Over Me. Also, there are rumors going around that she will be starring in a movie with Claudine Barretto. When asked to confirm it, Judy commented, “Alam mo sa totoo hindi ko rin alam and I’m still waiting kung ano ‘yung decision ng Star Cinema. Wala silang binigay na... may concept na, na ibinato pero wala pa akong instructions or directions from Star Cinema kung ano ‘yung next steps so naghihintay muna ako.”
Juday is also open to be working again with Sharon Cuneta who expressed her desire to star in a soap with her. “Naku go, bakit hindi? Maganda ‘yan, I’m sure it will be fun, I’m sure it will be a memorable one and masarap siguro makatrabaho si ate sa isang teleserye kasi ito ‘yung balwarte ko, ito ‘yung alam kong gawin, ito ‘yung alam kong mahahawakan ko ‘yung kamay niya at aalalayan siya every step of the way.”
With an equally successful professional and personal life, Judy remarked that she is truly contented and she feels totally “complete” at the moment. “Yes I’m definitely happy, I’m contented with my life. I can still do the things that I want to do and I still have time for myself na hindi ko rin alam kung papaano ko nagagawa. Maybe because everything fell into place. I have the perfect partner, na nandiyan ‘yung perfect staff na would fix my schedule, I have people who understand what I’m going through kung meron man.”
