JULIE ANNE SAN JOSE is aware that her fans are requesting GMA-7 would give a Book 2 to her primetime series, “Heartful Cafe”, that will have its last week of telecast starting this coming Monday. 

“Well, sana nga, GMA will grant their request because I really enjoyed doing this show,” she says at the zoompresscon of “All Out Sundays GMA 71st Anniversary” presentation. “I’m really so thankful that I did ‘Heartful Cafe’. 

"First time ko to do a romcom na may kakaibang twist in that it gave me the chance to do breaking of the 4th wall of being able to talk directly to the audience."

Doing lock in taping for the show is a memorable experience for her.  

“I am so thankful sa lahat ng mga nakasama ko sa show dahil pinaghirapan namin ang buong process of doing this. Sobrang saya naming lahat sa set. We treated each other as a family so I will miss them all.” 

Will she miss her leading man, David Licauco? 

“Oo naman. David and I got to know each other better during the taping and it’s a great experience working with him, also with our amazing writers, directors and the entire creative team. 

"I will miss ang friendship naming lahat and i will also miss the coffee we drink sa ‘Heartful Cafe’. Before the show ends, may special guest pa kami who’s close to me kaya abangan nyo. Bawal lang i-reveal ang identity niya para surprise.” 

Julie is taping right now for a musical entitled “Still” for an outside company called which is about the pandemic. 

“I’m very thankful to GMA for allowing me to be a part of it. Marami kaming singers dito, along with Christian Bautista, Bituin Escalante and other artists from the theatre. 

"It’s very inspirational and is about friendships and the strength and resiliency of the Filipino spirit. Katatapos lang ng first leg ng aming lock in taping and we will have the second leg soon.” 

She was bashed by Aldub fans then for being linked to Alden. How is their working relationship now in “All Out Sundays”? 

“We’re okay, we’re good. When we see each other in the show, we say hi, hello, usap-usap here and there. Walang ilangan kasi, for me, wala naman talagang issue or kaso at all. 

"Whatever issues before, ilibing na lang sa limot kasi 2021 na ngayon. We’re in good terms. Tigilan na mga intriga and let’s just all help each other lalo ngayong may pandemic. Let’s move forward and live a healthier life not only physically but spiritually and emotionally.”
