JULIE Anne San Jose requested those who attended the presscon of her new show, “Together Forever” that starts airing this Sunday after “Party Pilipinas,” not to pressure her and Elmo Magalona to admit that they’re on just to help the promo of their Sunday show and also their forthcoming movie.
“We don’t want to resort to this kind of gimmick just to promote our projects,” says Julie Anne. “Palagay ko, even the fans of our love team will not appreciate it. Gusto naming maging totoo sa kanila, sa lahat.”
Julie Anne plays Toyang, a tomboyish girl, and Elmo is Ely, their neighbor. “Eventually, my character in the story realizes she has feelings for him, but he prefers Lexi Fernandez. Sobrang nakakatuwa talaga na may movie na, may bago pa kaming TV show ni Elmo. May pressure din kasi ang sinundan naming show, ‘Tween Hearts,’ toprater so mataas ang expectations sa amin. Kaya naman we try our best na paghusayin ang trabaho namin para hindi kami mapahiya sa fans namin at sa GMA Network sa pagtitiwalang ibinibigay nila.”
Despite her busy showbiz sked, Julie Anne is admirable and that she doesn’t neglect her studies. She’s back to school this June taking up communication arts at Angelicum College. Eventually, she wants broadcasting to be her major. “Pipilitin ko talagang makatapos kasi iba ‘yung may college degree ka.”
