MANILA – Fresh from the success of "Doble Kara," Julia Montes could not believe that she is set to star in another promising television series.
“Yung totoo ko pong reaction, sabi ko lang, ‘Seryoso po?’ Kasi hindi man lang pumasok sa isip ko na sana mangyari ito. Lahat ng mga sinasabi kong dream role ko at dream ko na makatrabaho, laging nalalagpasan ng Dreamscape,” she told ABS-CBN News’ MJ Felipe in an exclusive interview.
With all the top actresses that she will work with in “Victims of Love,” Montes said this series is another one off her bucket list.
“Kinabahan po ako siyempre, hindi po mawawala 'yun. Inisip ko na lang na kapag nagawa ko na ito at kapag nangyayari na ito, marami kang matututunan sa kanila kasi napaka-generous actors nila. Napakagagaling nila sa kanilang henerasyon so another blessing for me,” she said.
Aside from Montes, the series will star Angelica Panganiban, Cherry Pie Picache and Lorna Tolentino.
Unlike her last soap, Montes said her role in “Victims of Love” is a lot more physically demanding. It was also for this reason that she did not think twice about doing it.
“Ang ginagawa ko na lang, super pinaghahandaan ko po. Ine-expect natin sometimes kapag may teleserye, emotional. Ito hindi lang emotional. Hahaluan talaga ng physical kasi kailangan namin ipakita kung ano 'yung character ko and kung ano 'yung tatakbuhin ng kuwento,” she said.
No other details about the project, such as the premiere date, have been revealed. Montes, however, shared that they will start taping very soon.
