Judy Ann Santos denies transferring to GMA-7



"Masaya,bonding kami sobra ng cast. Masaya sa Camiguin. Nangitim kami ng slight,nag-picture-picture... Wala kaming nakasalamuhang mga multo, in fairness.Napakababait ng mga tao sa Camiguin," says Judy Ann Santos about the shooting of her new film Ouija.


"Halfway through na kami," says Judy Ann Santos about herupcoming horror movie, Ouija, under GMA Films and Viva Films."Hopefully, mapalabas na siya within this year. Hopefully, end of summer ormid-year ng taon na ‘to."

Juday dispels rumors that the movie is a tell-tale sign thatshe is transferring to GMA-7, rival station of her home network ABS-CBN, in thenear future.

"Hindi pa naman. Wala pa namang ganung isyu kasi guestinglang naman. Naka-kontrata ako sa ABS-CBN sa mga TV shows. Itong ginagawa ko saGMA-7, clearly pelikula lang," asserts the Best Actress for Musical/Comedy inthe recently concluded 4th Golden Screen Awards.

She explains, "Ever since naman, I could always go to GMA-7and guest sa mga TV shows nila. Always naman akong welcome sa kanila. Ngayong nagsu-shoot ako ng movie sa kanila, hindi namannila pinaramdam sa akin na tumatawid lang ako. Very kind sila, very nice. Everybody'sbeen so nice to me from the cast to the crew to the staff to the big bosses—salahat ng shooting days, nandoon sila. Hindi nga ako makapaniwala na, ‘Eto palaang mga big bosses ng GMA-7!' Talagang 'andoon sila sa set nakikipag-chikahan.Nakakatuwa!"

Juday says she enjoyed working with the Kapuso cast andcrew.

"Positive vibes lahat," exclaims Juday. "Masaya ‘yongatmosphere namin sa pelikula. During ng shooting namin, kain lang, tsikahan,parang hindi horror ‘yong ginagawa namin!"

She continues, "Lahat kami relaxed kasi mayroon kamingprayer warrior na naka-antabay lagi sa amin, kasi since horror ang ginagawanamin, medyo delikado kasi may Ouija board talaga kaming ginagamit—bakamaka-attract ng negative spirits. Nakakatuwa lang sa GMA-7 kasi mas umabante sila sa safetyng artista at sa mga crew. Hindi sila nagpabaya sa ganoong aspeto."

The film, which also stars Juday's friend Jolina Magdangal,was mostly shot in Camiguin, an island off the coast of Misamis Oriental.

"Ang ganda! Ang ganda-ganda niya! Nagpunta kami sa WhiteIsland, ‘yon ang isa sa mga beautiful spots ng Camiguin. Ang daming puwedenggawin sa Camiguin, e, tapos babalik ka ng Cagayan. Marami ka pang puwedenggawin, so puwedeng malamang magka-chapter two pa ‘yong Camiguin namin," saysJuday.

She adds that they stayed there for four days. She was withher boyfriend, Ryan Agoncillo, and Jolina was also with her beau, Bebong Muñoz. Juday says that they weren't able to spend much time with each other.

She comments, "Talagang trabaho kami doon. Doon, walangchance. Hindi nga kami nagkita ni Bebong, e, kasi nagte-take ako, nagmo-motorsila... Noong paalis na si Jolina, nasa resort naman na si Bebong, so walangchance na magkita-kita kami.

"Actually, mas nakakaawa nga si Jolina kasi pagdating niyadoon, shoot kaagad tapos umalis sila ng madaling-araw ng Sunday para humabol saS.O.P., na hindi naman siya umabot sa opening. Siya ‘yong pinaka-kawawasa amin. The rest [of the cast], we're just relaxing. We're justenjoying the view. The cast and crew sobrang bonding lang talaga."

Will Juday be named the horror flick queen with Ouija?

She answers, "Siguro suwerte lang talaga ako. Nagkakataon na‘yong mga projects na ibinibigay sa akin, maganda, kakaiba ‘yong role, and maymga mahuhusay akong direktor na nagga-guide sa akin kung paano itawid nang tama‘yong eksena."

She quips, "Ano lang ‘yan, time-time lang iyan.Oras-oras lang ‘yan."
