Julie Anne San Jose Optimistic Her Love Team With Kristoffer Martin Will Click

JULIE ANNE SAN JOSE was supposed to co-star with Lauren Young in the Sunday afternoon show “Dormitoryo” and she was surprised when she was yanked out of its cast. It turns out she’ll be given her own primetime soap, “Kahit Nasaan Ka Man”. It’s meant to be her reunion with “Party Pilipinas” ka-love team, Elmo Magalona, but Elmo declined, just like what he did when he was being included in “Sunday All Stars”. What did she feel when she was paired with Kristoffer Martin instead?

“Okay naman po siya,” she says. “We first did the music video of my song ‘I’ll Be There’ as a duet at ang bilis niyang nakuha nang tama ang kanta. First primetime show ko po so I’m very excited about at siempre, ninenerbiyos din dahil bago ang tambalan namin ni Kristoffer. Mas nasanay yung fans na nakikita ako with Elmo.”

So why did Elmo beg off from the show? “I really don’t know at ayoko ring magtanong. Hindi naman siguro ako ang dahilan. Whatever his reason might be, let’s all just respect it. Hindi rin naman siguro magiging issue sa viewers na Kristoffer is really on with Joyce Ching off cam. Alam naman nilang we’re just playing our respective roles in the show. I think I’ll learn a lot from Kristoffer kasi he has more experience than me when it comes to acting at nanalo na siya ng acting award for his movie, ‘Oros’. Alam kong marami ring akong matututuhan sa senior co-stars naming sina Ronaldo Valdez, Tessie Tomas, Rita Avila, Eula Valdes, Yayo Aguila and Michael de Mesa na puro veterans na sa larangan ng acting. And I’m willing to learn from all of them.”

“Kahit Saan Ka Man” will really be a test case for her. If it would click, then that means viewers accept her not only as a singer but also as an actress. There’s a possibility she might star in other TV dramas later on. Who among current Kapuso actors would she like to be paired with in the future?

“Sana sina Aljur Abrenica and Tom Rodriguez kasi, like Kristoffer, they’re also both good singers. Mas makaka-relate siguro ako sa leading man ko kung nakakakanta rin siya.”

How about the rumor that she told GMA she doesn’t want to be paired with Alden Richards after their alledgedly aborted romance? “Ay wala pong ganun. I don’t want to go into the details of what happened between us. Siya na lang ang tanungin nyo. Civil naman kami when we see each other sa ‘Sunday All Stars’.”
