In an interview with “The Buzz” that aired on Sunday, Julia Barretto said she is hoping to be given projects soon.

“Super ready na ako bumalik umarte ulit. Sana mabigyan na ako ng project very soon,” she said.

Julia, who is part of Star Magic, also denied that her mom Marjorie prevented her from going back to showbiz.

“It's always been okay with her na umarte ako. It's just really the timing,” she explained.

Asked who she wants to work with if given the choice, Julia said: “Anyone would be okay. I'm friends with Khalil Ramos so maybe to be able to work with him would be such a fun thing.”

Julia’s first taste of the limelight was via her TV roles in "Kokey" (2007), "Walang Kapalit" (2007), and "Palos" (2008).

With acting and celebrity very much a part of her DNA, expect Julia's star to shine even brighter in the future.
