There is a lot in store for actress Janine Gutierrez after she made the big move to ABS-CBN last month. In her first-ever virtual media conference on Tuesday, February 2, Janine shared her projects with the Kapamilya network.
“Ang sure for now, it’s that I’m going to be on ASAP Natin To. So I’m very excited about that. And in the very near future, isang teleserye, which of course, I can’t say much about yet pero excited ako, just the fact that meron akong gagawin teleserye at pelikula sa ABS-CBN.”
Janine also shared that she has many Kapamilya female idols whom she would like to work with, such as Anne Curtis, Angelica Panganiban, Angel Locsin, Jodi Sta. Maria, Iza Calzado, and Regine Velasquez. She also fangirled over actress Liza Soberano, saying, “I am a LizQuen fan, I love Liza. Sobrang fan ako.” For the men, she mentioned Paulo Avelino, Enchong Dee, Jericho Rosales, JC Santos, Carlo Aquino, and Gerald Anderson.
Meanwhile, since her transfer, some netizens have been saying that Janine would make a good Valentina – the iconic antagonist character in the upcoming Darna The Series starring Jane de Leon.
When asked to comment on the possibility of portraying the said role, Janine said, “It’s so interesting to me kasi of course, I’m a fan of Darna, I’m a fan of all the old films. Actually, parang mayroon akong napanood before na ‘yung lola ko, nag-Valentina. I’m not sure ah, pero parang ‘nung bata ako. So it’s interesting, at siyempre, flattered ako na nakikita ako ng ibang tao na mapasama sa gano’n klaseng proyekto so I don’t know, we’ll see.”
Veteran actress-singer Pilita Corrales, the grandmother of Janine, played the role of Valentina in the 1994 movie Darna: Ang Pagbabalik.
