Judy Ann Santos To Star In New Soap For TV And Big Movie Project For MMFF

Judy Ann Santos will be doing rounds in different malls in the Philippines particularly in several groceries to check or see the product she is endorsing, Lactum, milk for infants.

May 19, 2012, a live appearance of the actress was held in the Atrium of SM Megamall. In where, the “Build a 100% Panatag World” campaign was launched by Lactum and the press conference of Judy Ann has been opened for publicity. A number of present moms in the event got a chance to ask questions addressing the actress; in short they had a mini open forum.

Last May 11, the actress celebrated her birthday at Singapore together with her family.

“Nag-Singapore kami ni Ryan. With the two kids, parents ni Ryan, at kasama rin namin si Mommy.

“Ito pong linggong ito, magpupunta po kami sa Bataan. Para sa outreach program, para sa mga taong inaalagaan ko na mga Aetas. For the renovation of the school grounds, doon po ako naka-focus sa kanila.”

The birthday of Juday and the Mother’s Day were celebrated together when they had their Singapore trip. It was the gift given by her behalf, Ryan Agoncillo, together with a pair of dazzling shoes but Juday doesn’t want to give much detail of the shoes that was given to her.

“Palagi ko kasi siyang niyayayang pumunta ng Singapore. Kasi, si Yohan, gustong mag-Universal Studios at saka yung Sounds of the Sea.

“Bata pa lang si Yohan, memorize na niya yun and ngayon kasi, nakaka-appreciate na siya ng theme park. Tapos, malapit lang naman.

“Yun ang ni-request ko sa kanyang trip namin.  At saka, ang sarap kasing kumain sa Singapore. Kaya kumain ako nang kumain.”

Juday added, “Alam kasi ni Ryan na kapag out-of-the country, masarap din  na kasama mo ang mga magulang mo, ‘di ba?

“At tamang-tama rin, Mother’s Day, magandang kasa-kasama namin ang mga mommies namin at that time.”

They stayed for about 6 days and 5 nights in Singapore.

BACK TO SOAP WORLD. It was said that she will be going to start again in making and taping for a teleserye in ABS-CBN. Good thing is that they finally made her a ‘yes’ to tape again or do a soap again.

Juday said with a giggle, “Unang-una, kasama siya sa kontrata.”

She also added that, “Magsisinungaling pa ba ko sa inyo kung sasabihin ko na gustong-gusto ko?  Gusto ko naman.

“Hindi ko lang hinahanap yung puyatan. Hindi ko lang hinahanap yung schedule na araw-araw na halos hindi ka na makauwi, hindi mo na makikita yung mga anak mo.

“Pero yung ABS naman, guaranteed me na it’s not gonna be as hectic as before—noong dalaga pa ako.

“Sabi ko rin sa kanila, sa tunay na salita, wala namang pag-aarte na namumuo sa akin.  Hindi ko lang talaga kaya ang puyatan.”

It was said that Juday has a cut-off of 12 midnight.

Juday said, “Gumigising naman ako ng alas-singko para ayusin si Yohan sa school.”

It was Sam Milby whom she knows that she would be working with in the upcoming teleserye.

“Magkaibigan naman kami ni Sam.  Pero malalaman ko this week kapag halimbawa, natuloy ang storycon at look test, yun na siguro ang magiging final casting.”

“Siyempre, may mga tanong pa rin na kesyo ganito, kesyo ganyan.  Wala namang nahindian,” she said.

Aside from the time, are there any other requests in which she asked for before she accepted to do a teleserye again? Like, are there any demands?

“Actually, wala naman.  Yung cut-off lang talaga.  Ayoko lang noon yung ‘for airing’ palagi na taping.

“Kasi, parang buong buhay ko na-experience yan.  Memorize ko na yan kahit tulog ako.

“At saka kasi, kapag may airing na mamayang gabi, hindi mo na mapupulido yung trabaho mo.  Kasi, iniisip mo na kailangan, take one lang ‘to.

“Kakaisip mo nang kakaiisip, hindi mo na naitatawid nang maayos ang trabaho.

“So, yun lang ang nire-request ko na hangga’t-maaari sana, kung puwedeng i-can, naka-can siya para hindi ngarag, ‘di ba?

“Pag-uusapan kung hanggang anong month puwedeng i-can.  Kasi sabi ko, baka puwedeng ayusin muna natin ang istorya.

“Kapag okay sa management, saka natin i-shoot.  Para hindi rin tayo re-shoot nang re-shoot.  Kasi, ganyan ang nangyari sa amin sa Habang May Buhay.

“I-can natin, pero, huwag namang dalawang taon.”

CHOICE OF ROLES. In terms of doing a teleserye, does she requires a certain role or does she the one to choose in which role she likes most?

“Hindi, hindi. Lahat iyon under ABS, alam naman ng ABS kung ano yung mga carry kong gawin sa estado ngayon ng buhay ko.

“Sabi ko rin sa kanila, parang hindi na kakagatin ang love team sa teleserye lalo na kung ako ang gaganap.”

Juday is avoiding the possibility of losing time for her family especially with the project/s she is about to face in the near future.

“Kaya nga po kailangan na ano, naka-schedule nang maayos yung shooting kung saka-sakali mang mag-push through itong movie…

“Kasi iyon yung kailangan kong ayusin with ABS, kung paano ito magagawa nang hindi magpapatung-patong, kasi ang hirap pag wala ka ng choice.

“Ayoko namang magtrabaho nang malungkot ako, kasi hindi ko na nakikita yung mga anak ko.”

Judy Ann has an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN.

“Sa TV production? Exclusive ako.”

GUESTING OUTSIDE HER NETWORK. How come that she was permitted to be the guest in the shows of TV5 like Talentadong Pinoy of Ryan and Sharon: Kasama Mo Kapatid ni Sharon Cuneta?

“Ay hindi… with ABS naman meron naman kaming… ano na lang yun, parang respeto lang din nila sa amin ni Ryan na hindi na kailangan pang ‘barilin’ kung halimbawang, mag-guest ako kay Ryan or kay Ate Sharon.

“It’s given naman na hindi ako ang nagsimula ng show e, kumbaga guest lang naman.

“Even with GMA, ganun din naman, hindi naman ako as in super-exclusive ng ABS. For teleseryes, I am exclusive with them.”

MEGA MOVIE PRODUCTION. Aside from the Cinemalaya entry of Judy Ann which is Mga Mumunting Lihim, it is also possible that she will make a big production movie. At first, she doesn’t want to mention what’s the title of the movie.

“May isang malaking project na mangyayari this year.  Ang hirap po, hindi ako makapag-announce kasi, hindi ko pa rin po nakakausap first hand ang mga producers.

“But definitely, it’s going be a big project.  At least for me.

“With the big companies and big stars as well.

“Hindi Star Cinema. Parang tatlong production e, ang magsasama-sama. I think ha, I’m not sure, kasi hindi ko pa rin sila nakaka-meeting nang maayos.”

Is it for Metro Manila Film Festival?

“Maaari, maaari…kasi sabi ko nga noong una, ang hirap ng Filmfest, ang ngarag,” she said.

An entertainment press guessed that it is possible that the movie Juday is referring to is for Metro Manila Film Festival entry. A collaboration of Bong Revilla and Vic Sotto in which, she will probably replace Ai-Ai.

Juday mentioned, “Ako lang naman, wala namang problema.  Susmaryosep! Hello naman! Ako pa ba naman ang… nakakaloka naman ako kung sabihin ko na pag-iisipan ko muna.

“Ang sa akin lang, gusto ko lang makausap yung company para malaman ko kung ano yung timeline ng shooting.

“Para hindi mag-overlap sa taping.  Siyempre kasi ngayon, nakasalalay na sa pamilya.  Sa mga anak, sa akin mismo.  Hindi ko na kaya yung araw-araw, oras-oras.”

Have Juday and Ai-Ai talked about this matter?

“Actually, natanong ko na si Ai-Ai about it.  Siyempre, hindi ko naman puwedeng i-divulge ang napag-usapan namin. Pero nabanggit nga sa akin na ‘Kino-konsider ka, bakla!’

“Tapos sabi ko, ‘Ay iyon, bongga!’”

“Tingnan natin, sana maging maganda yung  project.”

Maybe, Juday and Ryan will also have rivalry?

“Wala naman kaming isyu kay Rye pagdating sa mga bagay na yan… basta may pera. Ay!” she said jokingly.

“Hindi naman… I mean when it comes naman to acting and career, wala naman kaming isyu sa ganyan.

“Lahat naman ito e, trabaho, di ba? Kung anu’t-anuman pareho naman kaming magbe-benefit sa resulta kung saka-sakali at wala naman kaming isyu pagdating sa trabaho, as long as yung time for the family hindi nakakalimutan.”

COCO AND JOHN LLOYD. Will the proposed movie of Star Cinema with Coco Martin and John Lloyd Cruz, will push thru?

“Hindi ko rin alam e, kasi mas busy pa sa salitang busy yang dalawang binatang yan, e.”

Is she interested?

“Oo naman, oo naman. Basta siguro two years from now,” she said.

“Pag natapos siguro yang mga projects na yan, magpapahinga muna ako sa bahay ng mga tatlong buwan siguro kung saka- sakali.”
