Her screen partner Elmo Magalona is already taken, but Julia Anne San Jose says “why not?" when asked about the possibility of turning their reel love into real.
At the launch of her collaboration with Team Manila, she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), “I’m not shutting my doors.
“Siyempre, darating naman talaga sa time na… like yung i-admire mo siya…”
What she likes most about the son of Francis Magalona: “He’s composed.”
Smiling, she also described her leading man in Just One Summer as “talented like his father.”
The young singer-actress added, “Idol ko talaga si Francis M, so parang nakita ko si Francis kay Elmo.
“Ayun, parang na-a-amaze lang ako.”
For now, she wants to focus on making the JuliElmo, the love team’s supporters, happy.
Julie Anne continued, “Kasi si Elmo is really a good friend of mine.
“As a love team, we’re really doing our best to entertain people, para pakiligin din sila.”
SINGING + ACTING. Singing was the launch pad of her career.
In 2005, she joined the Popstar Kids, where she emerged as one of the finalists.
“Ang passion ko kasi talaga is singing,” she affirmed.
And at the young age of 11, she was already aware of the fact that “obstacles” would be coming her way.
“Nung nagsimula ako sa Popstar Kids, maraming mga… like discrimination.
‘Tapos, of course, you can’t please everyone, so nandiyan yung mga bashers, mga haters, ganun,” she related.
Fast forward to present, she’s now one of the most popular teens in the country, and she’s been given the chance to act as well.
The Party Pilipinas mainstay said, “I had the chance to act and GMA-7 gave me the opportunity to act, so yun, I just grabbed the opportunity na makapagtrabaho ako sa GMA with acting.”
But her goal is to have “lots of concerts, shows here and abroad, then album.”
She will “work hard” to achieve this, and will not be put down by anything.
Julie Anne resumed, “Kasi although may mga nararanasan tayong mga obstacles, mga challenges, trials, whatever…it’s part of it.
And if there’s one advice she can give to those who want to become like her:
“Ako, marami rin akong napagdaanan, e. Just be yourself.
“And always ask guidance from the Lord.
“Always pray and ah…just do everything, just do your best…always to be successful, to achieve all your ambitions and dreams.”
