Janice De Belen's Kids All Grown Up So She Has More Time For Her Career

JANICE DE BELEN is doing one horror film after another. After starring in “The Healing” with Gov. Vilma Santos, she’ll now be seen as Andi Eigenmann’s weird mom in “Pridyider”. She has also completed “Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles” with Lovi Poe. She’s now shooting “The Strangers”, Quantum Films horror entry in the coming Metro-Manila Filmfest with Julia Montes, Enrique Gil and Enchong Dee. In “Shake, Rattle & Roll 14”, another horror entry in the filmfest, she’s reunited with Herbert Bautista (they’re both cast in the very first “Shake, Rattle” movie in 1984) in a special episode, “Ang Pamana”, directed by Chito Rono.

“The Strangers” producer Atty. Joji Alonso says everyone on the set, especially Direk Lawrence Fajardo, likes Janice because she’s so sweet and easy to work with.

“Horror actress na ako,” Janice laughs. “This is not new naman for me. Remember, ‘Tiyanak’ is known as ‘ang anak ni Janice’. Sa ‘Pridyider’, may markado kong eksena while chopping into pieces the body of one of my victims. Really scary.”

With her so many assignments these days, Janice says she’s having a second wind in her career. “I’m so happy kasi malalaki na ang mga anak ko. My eldest, Luigi, is now an accomplished chef at may cooking show na rin sa GMA with Jolina Magdangal. My youngest, Yuan, is a teenager. I now have more time to devote to my career kaya heto, dumami talaga ang movies ko at may bago pa kong soap na ‘Ina Kapatid Anak’. I’m having fun and I really can’t complain. Di ko kailangan ng lovelife.”
