MANILA -- Young actress Julia Montes will star in the upcoming "Doble Kara" with leading men Edgar Allan Guzman and Anjo Damiles, Dreamscape announced on Wednesday.

Montes, whose last teleserye was "Ikaw Lamang" in 2014, said she feels "super happy and blessed" to be cast in the series, which also stars Alora Sasam, John Lapus, Allen Dizon, Patricia Javier, Ariel Rivera, Mylene Dizon and Gloria Sevilla.

"Sabi ko nga po parang God's perfect time kasi hindi lahat ng bagay kailangan mabilis. Ang sarap ng pakiramdam kasi after a long time ito ang ibibigay na next project," Montes told ABS-CBNNews.com and other entertainment media.

Montes considers her role in the upcoming soap to be her most challenging role yet.

"Siguro nasanay sila sa akin na kapag sinabing Julia, 'Naku ano kaya ang gagawin niya?' Medyo 'di normal sa age ko or medyo challenging nga. This time I can say na ito ang pinaka-challenging for me. So hindi lang puso't isip ang kailangang i-dedicate dito kung 'di buong ako kasi ganoon talaga siya kahirap at the same time," she explained.

Asked about her new leading men, Montes said: "Nakaka-excite din at siyempre kinakabahan at nahihiya din, kasi 'di pa kami masyadong kumportable sa isa't isa po. Pero excited po kasi lahat ng nakakasama ko at nakatrabaho ko, natuto ako sa kanila. So this time nae-excite ako kung ano ang matututuhan ko."
