MANILA – The tandem of Julia Montes and Coco Martin will temporarily have to take the backseat as the actress is set to be paired with a new actor in an upcoming project.
“‘Yung makaka-partner ko ...may additional so hindi ko alam kung sino ang bago. Hiwalay muna kami ni Coco,” she told ABS-CBN News.
But Montes confirmed that actor Enrique Gil will definitely be part of this upcoming project.
“Hopefully mag-start na 'yung story conference. Wala pang title pero may mga nasasabi na sa aking makakasama ko. Si Enrique is parang sure na,” she said.
Without saying whether it is going to be a new movie or a television series, Montes said their first story conference is set in April and that’s when she’ll know more details about the project.
Montes’ most recent project with ABS-CBN was “A Moment Like This,” her first full-length movie with Martin after the phenomenal series “Walang Hanggan.”
While waiting for new opportunities to come her way, Montes said she will first spend quality time with her mother this coming Holy Week break.
Montes and her mom will be flying to Thailand on Tuesday for a four-day vacation in Bangkok. She will be back on Sunday.
