MANILA -- Teen actress Julia Barretto does not mind being compared to her aunt Claudine Barretto, who is known for her hit teleseryes during her younger years.
"Normal naman siguro siya pero on my side naman I won't let it affect me because my tita has been in the induustry for so many years. You can't compare somebody who's been in the industry for many years to somebody who has just entered. So hindi talaga mako-compare 'yon," Julia told reporters in a recent interview.
Julia said she's really excited that her debut soap "Mirabella" will be airing soon.
"Taping so far has been really fun. Madami na pong nakunan. It's showing next month na, this March 2014, so sana ay abangan niyo," Julia said.
"I am really excited, I am nervous, I am feeling everything all at once. Siguro mostly excited ako kasi ang tagal kong hinintay," she added.
As a newcomer in showbiz, she said she's enjoying learning new things on the set.
"Every taping day is a learning experience so ayaw ko din ma-pressure. I don't want to pressure myself na to be as in good na ilang year na ako sa industriya. I am allowing myself to improve, I'm giving myself time it's my first teleserye, launching teleserye," said Julia.
"Pinaka-challenging so far siguro just being Mirabella kasi I'm playing two charaters here. Kailangan mabigyan ko sila ng difference, that itself is very challenging," she added.
