Judy Ann Santos on first kontrabida role: "Ito na ata yung huli kong teleseryeng dapat mayaman ako!"


Judy Ann Santos is set to portray her first bida-kontrabida role on television via the fantasy series, Starla.

She divulged this in an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last March 16 at Shangri-La Hotel, Bonifacio Global City.

When PEP.ph asked her if she's excited to portray a mean role, Juday exclaimed, "Oo, oo, excited ako talaga!

"Happy ako kasi para may iba namang makita yung tao.

"Expectorant [expecting] na yung umpisa pa lang, mahirap ka na, inaapi ka."

In her past teleseryes, Judy Ann used to portray impoverished, kind-hearted characters, like her roles in Mara Clara (1992-1997) and Esperanza (1999-2001).

However, she said about her new role, "Pero magastos itong show na ito, ha!

"Magastos sa costume, magastos sa mga paandar, pero fashionista ka!

"On that note, parang ito na ata yung huli kong teleseryeng dapat mayaman ako!

"Balik na lang ako ulit sa api-apihan at mahirap para duster duster lang. Walang make-up, walang hair para kalma lang," Judy Ann quipped.

She added, "Pero for a change, ngayon lang ako umaabala sa look.

"Ang pinaka involvement ko na lang dito sa Starla is yung character ko, yung hitsura ng character ko.

"Mahirap pala maging maldita. Masakit siya sa leeg!"

Since the ABS-CBN show is targeted to children, Judy Ann looks forward to watching the show with her kids Yohan, Lucho, and Luna.

"Fantasy siya, pambata, so, excited ako na mapanood din siya ng mga anak ko.

"Yun nga lang, maninibago sila because mommy is not a good person doon sa simula."

NOT IN A RUSH

During Judy Ann's March 7 Live Q&A for her online show Judy Ann's Kitchen, a netizen asked about the airing date of her TV comeback.

She only answered with a smile, "Kung kailan po, only the management knows. So far, wala pa po akong alam sa part na 'yan."

PEP.ph asked Judy Ann during the exclusive interview if she is becoming impatient for the airing of Starla.

After all, they started taping last June 2018, and it has been six years since Juday did her last teleserye.

She answered, "Hindi."

Judy Ann then explained, "Palagi naman yun yung sinasabi ko, kasi ang dami ko nang experience sa ganyan—mahabang pagpopondo ng teleserye.

"Parang naging running joke na lang sa akin na kung ipapalabas, only the higher ones know."

It may be recalled that Judy Ann's 2010 teleserye, Habang May Buhay, took three years before being aired on ABS-CBN.

Right now, the 40-year-old actress is just enjoying each taping day, especially since it reunites her with her former co-stars in her previous teleseryes and films.

"I’m enjoying my taping kasi nga I’m working again with tatay Joel Torre, with Raymart Santiago.

"Iba yung character ko, as in sobrang iba yung character ko. as in bago siya sa akin.

"Basically, ang mga kasama ko dito mga lumang tao. Lumang tao kaming lahat.

"Ang pinakabago lang doon, yung bagong loveteam, yung anak ni Mark Anthony, si Chantal at yung dalawang bulilit pero yung rest, lumang tao."

Judy Ann is pertaining to Mark Anthony Fernandez's son Grae Fernandez and Star Magic Circle 2018 member Chantal Videla.

The two child stars who are part of the cast are Enzo Pelojero and Alex Baena.

Judy Ann continued, "Yun nga yung biruan namin, e, ang pagbabalik ng mga lumang tao!

"Pero masaya kami sa set. Ang happy happy namin sa set.

"Una, para kang bumalik sa pagshushoot ng Esperanza, kasi shoot kami ng Tanay, walang signal.

"So, lahat ng tao nag-uusap, lahat nagchichikahan. Para makakuha ka ng signal, parang 10 minutes away pa from the location.

"In-eenjoy ko siya, parang nasa posisyon ako na hindi ko istestress sarili ko sa isang bagay na wala akong hawak."

ABS-CBN has yet to announce Starla's airing date.

Judy Ann Santos will reveal more interesting stories and trivia about her old teleseryes in an upcoming PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) special feature to be published this April.
