    ABS-CBN: Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala [Judy Ann Santos, Sam Milby & KC Concepcion]

    Judy Ann Santos says she admires Sam Milby's efforts to learn Tagalog

    by: Rhea Manila Santos



    Although she is happy with the all the positive feedback on MasterChef Pinoy Edition, Judy Ann Santos admitted that it was also the reason why her teleserye project Against All Odds got pushed back to a later playdate. The talented host actress said she wasn’t disappointed by the news because it allowed her to focus and perform better on her projects.

    “Actually sa akin okay lang. In-explain ko rin naman sa kanila na kung ipapagawa niyo sa akin yung MasterChef, hindi ko kayang pagsabayin yun at yung teleserye kasi paniguradong may isang mag-su-suffer. Ayoko naman ng ganun. Ayoko namang mag-suffer yung performance ko doon. Ganun din dito sa pag-ho-host kasi bagong pasok lang ako dito, babarubalin ko na. So naintindihan naman nila,” she said.

    The 34-year-old actress said that despite the delay in airing the series, nothing has changed with regards to preparing for Against All Odds. “Tuloy pa rin, wala namang nabago and wala namang nadagdag, wala ring nabawas. Tuloy pa rin siya definitely. Nag-shoot na kami. Marami na. Naka-isang linggo na kami, naka-pilot week na kami. May mga considerations na kailangan gawin kasi pati sa production, maraming kailangan i-adjust with the teleserye. Hindi naman ma-de-delay masyado yung taping, yung airing lang,” she shared.

    Juday also admitted that she enjoys working with her newest leading man Sam Milby. “In fairness may acting si Sam ha. In fairness kasi kung wala naman siyang acting siyempre malalaman naman yun pag sinabihan siya ng director. May acting siya. Yun nga lang ang problema lang niya talaga ngayon is yung pagsasalita niya. Nahihirapan talaga siya pero natutuwa ako dun sa effort na pinapakita niya na gustong-gusto niya talaga mag-Tagalog, ayaw naman ng dila niya so at least may effort,” she said.

    Juday also commented on reports that Sam feels intimidated by her. “Sabi niya yun pero feeling ko naiintimidate siya kasi nabubulol siya. Pero kasi may effort siya mag-Tagalog. Gusto ko naman yung effort na yun sa kanya na mag-Tagalog siya. Kaya nakakatuwa naman din. Pero siguro natatakot siya. Hindi ko alam eh. Actually diri-diretso lang kami, wala kaming take one take two take three. Continuous roll lang kami kung may magkamali man basta diri-diretso lang kami,” she explained.

    The MasterChef host also talked about her relationship with her longtime manager Alfie Lorenzo. “Okay naman kami. Parang kaming mag-nanay na away-bati, tampuhan-bati. Si tito Alfie siyempre bilang pioneer sa industriya na ito siyempre meron siyang mga bagay na i-e-explain sa ‘yo na akala mo hindi nangyayari pero after a while maiisip mo na, ‘Ah oo nga ano, nangyari nga,’ yung mga ganun. Minsan matatawa ka sa mga panukala niya, may punto. Strikto pero marami kasi siyang alam dito sa industriya so makikinig ka lang din. Basta makinig ka lang at intindihin mo lang yung sinasabi niya, wala kayong magiging problema,” she explained.

    Jericho Rosales is excited to work with Judy Ann Santos in 'Against All Odds'

    Jericho Rosales happily announced that he'll be part of the teleserye Against All Odds which also top-bills Judy Ann Santos, KC Concepcion, and Sam Milby. Initially scheduled to air in 2012, the show’s premiere was moved to next year.

    According to Jericho, it's perfect timing since it will finally give him the chance to work with the country's teleserye queen again. "Finally, magkakasama na kami ni Juday. I remember before nagkatrabaho na kami sa Esperanza. Nag-long break ako after that. Yun yung nag-concentrate ako sa music nung na-burn out ako [sa acting]. After that, one of the soaps na hindi ko natanggap noon was with Juday. So I kind of feel like, finally, ngayon matutuloy na ulit, makakasama ko si Juday sa soap."

    Jericho refused to give details about his character, but it seems that he'll be Judy Ann's leading man in the teleserye. "Hindi ko muna ire-reveal mangyayari sa character ko. Kasi yung character ko papasok sa second week ng soap. It was originally for someone [else]. Pero unfortunately, parang the artist couldn't ano, parang hindi ma-handle ng ano, and then they offered me the role. In-explain nila kay Tita Angeli (Pangilinan, his manager). Sabi ko, 'Interesting. Okay game'. Iba siya sa mga characters ko noon. Sabi ko, 'Okay good.'"

    Although he wasn't exactly the first choice for the role, Jericho maintained that what's important for him is the quality of the material that they have for the teleserye. It's actually the reason why it takes time before he accepts a project. "Ako naman I choose my projects really well. Kapag malaking panahon ang igugugol ko, it's important to me [na maganda yung materyal]. Kasi hinahanapan ako ng mga tao na, 'Wala ka bang teleserye?' Kasi that's their gauge of being visible so I understand that. But for me, whether it's an album or a teleserye, or a concert, ganon ako e, mapili talaga ako."

    Sam Milby has no problem with the postponed play date of ‘Against All Odds’

    by: Rachelle Siazon



    Sam Milby admitted that it was refreshing to have Pokwang as a leading lady in the movie 24/7 In Love. Aside from the fact that he enjoyed shooting their comic scenes together, they didn’t have a hard time establishing onscreen chemistry since they’re also good friends off cam. “Six years na kaming nagkakasama sa concert tours and we did an episode for Your Song before so it made it a lot easier. Mas nawawala ang pressure sa akin kasi it’s comedy. Masaya lang sa set, very easy going lang,” he said during the press con of 24/7 In Love.

    The 26-year-old is also part of the teleserye Against All Odds together with Judy Ann Santos and KC Concepcion. It was supposed to start airing this year but was moved to 2013. When asked how he feels about the delay, Sam maintained that it’s all for the best since his other co-stars are also busy with different projects. “Kakaradating ko lang galing States. I don’t know, naghihintay lang ako. For the week we were put on hold kasi ang hirap ng schedule. I know Juday has a movie for Metro Manila Film Fest and she's also busy with her new show Pinoy MasterChef. Ako naghihintay lang ng schedule. Okay na rin kasi busy din ako. I’m doing a lot of shows for singing naman. But I just finished the indie movie Death March.”

    Sam previously shared in an interview with Push.com.ph that he was star-struck by Judy Ann during their first few days on the set. But he’s happy to say that he’s more comfortable working with her now. “First time na magkasama kami sa isang project. Friends naman kami pero may mga eksena lang na medyo na-intimidate ako pero naging kumportable naman ako after a while.” He added that his colleagues have been very supportive whenever he has a hard time with his speaking lines. “Noong una nahirapan ako sa mga lines ko na medyo malalim. Kaya minsan ang iniisip ko yung linya, hindi yung acting. Pero yun lang naman.”

    Does he feel threatened since Jericho Rosales was also tapped to be part of the soap? “Hindi naman maiiwasan na ma-compare kami. I’m actually glad naman na madagdagan ng cast, making it much more better. I’m excited.”

    ...

    ON HOLD. Naka-hold naman ang isa pang teleserye ni Sam [Milby], ang Against All Odds na dapat ay unang gagawin niya.

    Pero tiniyak ng actor-singer na tuloy pa rin ang teleserye nila nina Judy Ann Santos, KC Concepcion, at Jericho Rosales.

    Aniya, “Tuloy pa rin ang Against All Odds, na-move lang ng kaunti pero magre-resume na kami ng taping next week.

    “Siyempre mas masaya na may trabaho kaysa wala rin so kahit nagpupuyat ako.

    “Hindi puwedeng magreklamo 'coz it’s a blessing talaga na may nagbibigay pa rin ng tiwala sa akin, ng mga projects so I’m happy.

    “Siyempre na-miss ko, iba yung movie and TV.

    “Pag movie, unang-una yung mga kasama mo sa taping, mas malapit kayo sa isa’t isa kasi maraming oras kayo magkakasama.

    “Of course, yun talaga ang exposure mo, ang nakikita ka ng mga Kapamilya araw-araw sa TV."

    NEWS REWIND muna habang tuloy-tuloy lang ang taping ng AGAINST ALL ODDS

    PEP.PH

    August 18, 2012

    AGAINST ALL ODDS. Ano ba ang kuwento ng Against All Odds?

    “It’s about woman empowerment. A mother who is struggling to raise her son, and at the same time, fighting for her rights… yung ganyan.

    “Hindi siya yung normal na teleserye na love story, na magkapatid, o mag-dyowa na may Romeo and Juliet na drama, hindi.

    “It’s more of, telling the women or mothers to begin with, na you can fight for your own rights, na you can’t be a superhero but you can be a superhero on your own.

    “Hindi siya fantasy na teleserye pero may pakikipaglaban na involved.”

    SAM MILBY. First time daw niya niyang makatrabaho ang Filipino-American actor na si Sam Milby at, ayon kay Juday, “medyo nahihirapan ako pagdating sa part ng English.”

    Dagdag niya, “Medyo may push-and-pull na nagaganap dito, na pagod na ako.

    “Pero hindi, in fairness kay Sam, may mga efforts siyang magtanong ng, 'Ano ba ang ibig sabihin nitong Tagalog word na 'to?'

    “Halimbawa, may mababasa siyang, ‘Ano yung mandurukot?' 'Ay, alam ko ‘yan! Pickpocket ‘yan sa English.’

    “Basta may mga little words siyang tinatanong, na naa-appreciate ko yun kasi he really wants to learn to speak Tagalog.

    “And hindi ba nakakatuwang isipin na itong taong ito, nag e-effort naman?

    “Siyempre, bigyan naman natin ng kaunting time na ganun.

    “Ako nga, hirap na hirap mag-English, paano pa siya? E, di hirap na hirap din siyang mag-Tagalog.

    “So patas lang yung laban dito. Walang lamangan.”

    Hindi pa raw nila sigurado kung kailan ang airing ng Against All Odds, pero sa impormasyong nakuha ni Juday ay baka sa October ito simulang ipalabas sa ABS-CBN.

    Dugtong pa niya, “Yun ang sabi, hindi namin sure kung mami-meet namin.

    “Ang sama ng panahon, e, ang setting namin ay asinan.

    “E, sa pagkakataong ito, bumabagyo, wala ka nang magagawang asin, natutunaw na siya sa ulan, di ba?

    “Medyo mahirap, pero, at least, ibang setting.

    "Hindi siya yung talyer, hindi siya yung palayan or bukirin, at least iba naman.

    “Huli akong gumawa ng asin ay Ploning pa. So okay na rin yun.”

    Ang Ploning ay ang 2008 movie na pinagbidahan ni Judy Ann, na kinunan sa Cuyo, Palawan.

    September 4, 2012

    TELESERYE WITH JUDAY. Nadako naman ang usapan sa teleseryeng ginagawa ngayon ni Sam [Milby], ang Against All Odds, kunsaan kasama niya sina Judy Ann Santos at KC Concepcion.

    Naging kontrobersiyal ang pagsisimula ng teleseryeng ito, na hudyat din ng pagbabalik sa drama ni Judy Ann.

    Bukas ang manager ni Judy Ann na si Alfie Lorenzo na ayaw niyang makapareha ni Judy Ann si Sam, pero natuloy pa rin ang pagsasama ng dalawa.

    Kuwento ni Sam, “Nagte-taping pa rin kami, nag-taping kami kahapon [August 31].

    “Sobrang bait niya [Juday] to the staff, sa lahat, to everyone.

    "She cares for the whole production, sa amin.

    "She’s always bringing food para sa lahat... sobrang bait talaga," papuri niya sa aktres.

    September 13, 2012

    LATEST TELESERYE. Miyembro naman ng isang mayamang pamilya ang ang papel na gagampanan ni Sam [Milby] sa teleseryeng Against All Odds.

    “Gray character siya. Hindi siya yung tipong Sam ma-romantic o good boy.

    "Gray character siya—may good side, may bad side.

    Hindi naman siya kontrabida but he’s not the good guy.

    "Iba… iba yung Sam Milby dito sa mga ginawa ko.”

    November 10, 2012

    WORKING WITH JUDAY. Sa isang banda, may nagtanong naman kay Sam [Milby] kung totoo raw bang na-intimidate ito kay Judy Ann Santos, na siyang female lead sa upcoming series na Against All Odds, kung saan makakasama rin si Sam.

    “First time na magkasama kami sa isang project,” ani Sam.

    “Friends naman kami pero may mga eksena lang na medyo na-intimidate ako. And naging kumportable naman ako after a while.”

    Nahirapan daw siya sa kanyang mga Tagalog lines?

    “May mga lines na medyo malalalim, at dahil malalim, nahirapan ako sabihin. Iniisip ko yung linya, hindi acting. Pero yun lang.”

    November 24, 2012

    INTIMIDATED WITH JUDAY? Sa isang panayam kay Judy Ann [Santos], nabanggit nito na tila nai-intimidate sa kanya si Sam [Milby] sa tuwing magkaeksena sila.

    Obserbasyon tuloy ng mga nakakapanood kina Juday at Sam, ito raw siguro ang dahilan kaya minsan ay nagkakabulul-bulol ang Kapamilya actor sa kanyang pagta-Tagaog pag magkaeksena na sila.

    “Hindi naman. I mean naging mas kumportable na ako ngayon.

    “May mga eksena talaga na nabubulol ako kaya paulit-ulit ang mga eksena,” pag-amin ni Sam.

    “She’s very supportive though, sobrang thankful ako sa kanya.

    “Like yung sa mga ganyang moments, supportive siya, patient siya sa akin.

    “Tinutulungan niya ako, kaya I’m very thankful to her.”

    PRACTICING HIS TAGALOG. Tinanong namin si Sam kung may mga ginagawa ba siya ngayon para mag-improve pa lalo ang kanyang pagta-Tagalog, lalo’t ito na lang naman ang problema sa kanya.

    “Early this year, even last year, nagbabasa ako ng Precious Hearts Romances na booklets para masanay yung dila ko, and then nakakatulong din ang best friend ko na si Pratty na Tagalog din magsalita.”

    Ang Precious Hearts Romances ay brand ng mga romance books na nakalathala sa wikang Filipino, at siyang pinagkukuhanan ng mga istorya ng programang Precious Hearts Romances presents… ng ABS-CBN.

    Habang ang tinutukoy naman na “Pratty” ni Sam ay ang aktor na si John Prats.

    January 28, 2013

    ON WORKING WITH JUDY ANN SANTOS. Isa nga sa mga pinaghahandaan ngayon ni Joseph [Marco] ay ang teleseryeng Against All Odds na pinagbibidahan ni Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo.

    Magkapatid sina Joseph at Judy Ann dito.

    Makakasama rin nila sina Empress at si Bryan Termulo, na siyang bubuo sa bagong onscreen love triangle ni Joseph.

    "Thankful naman ako sa ABS-CBN na binigyan ako ng ganito kalaking break sa isang teleseryeng Against All Odds,” wika ni Joseph.

    “Feeling ko, isa ito sa mga biggest break ko.

    "Makakasama ko iyong mga malalaking stars tulad nina Ms. Judy Ann Santos at Sam Milby.”

    Tungkol saan nga ba ang teleseryeng Against All Odds?

    “Well, nandun na sa title mismo… Against All Odds.

    "Para kay Ms. Judy Ann iyong istorya na parang pasan niya iyong mundo.

    "Ang daming nangyaring mga bagay sa kanya, pero she will fight and parang sa kanya, everything will be okay.”

    Matagal na umanong naumpisahan ang production ng nasabing teleserye.

    Ayon kay Joseph, “Nag-start na kami before ng halos one and a half months na.

    "Pero, na-stop kami ng halos three months, kasi nga po may MasterChef si Ms. Judy Ann.”

    Ang tinutukoy ni Joseph ay ang programang MasterChef Pinoy Edition, hosted by Judy Ann.

    Kumusta naman ang experience ni Joseph na maka-trabaho si Judy Ann, na siyang kapatid niya sa show?

    “Actually, most of my scenes kasama ko si Ms. Judy Ann.

    "Grabe! Sobra! It feels surreal.

    "Kasi, that’s Judy Ann Santos, e, parang bata palang ako pinapanuod ko na siya, now she’s a big star. Nakaka-overwhelm.”

    Hindi ba siya kinabahan na makatapat sa eksena ang tinaguriang Young Superstar ng Philippine showbiz?

    “Noong una, medyo kinakabahan ako at masyado akong na-challenge, lalo na iyong mga unang eksena namin.

    "Pero, alam mo iyon, she makes me feel comfortable. Parang isang pamilya lang kami sa set.”

    February 26, 2013

    JOGGLING TELESERYES. Sam [Milby] talks about doing Kahit Konting Pagtingin and his teleserye with Judy Ann [Santos], Against All Odds, at the same time.

    He relates, “Parang dahil sa dalawang teleserye, every Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday, light na, di ba, KKP, Kahit Konting Pagtingin.

    “Tapos Monday-Wednesday-Friday yung taping for Against All Odds, na mas heavy drama.

    “Yung character ko dun, gray character na. Basta hindi siya yung tipong good Sam na ginawa ko dati. And, ayun, mahirap.

    “Eto ang first time siguro sa seven years na nasa business ako na may dalawang teleserye, sabay.

    “Pag may sabay na project, laging movie-teleserye. Never na may dalawang teleserye sabay.

    “So eto, mas mahirap pag teleserye kasi maraming eksena na nagsu-shoot sa isang araw.

    "Pag movie, mas konting emosyon, mas konting kailangan, di ba? So eto, ayun na talaga.

    “But sobrang happy ako na I get to have ganito kadaming blessings and I get to explore a different character din sa Against All Odds.”

    Sam admits shooting two teleseryes at once can get confusing.

    He says, “Uhm, mahirap nga. Sometimes, dumadating ako sa set ng Against All Odds or sa KKP thinking, ‘Sino ba ako?’

    “But at the same time, kahit sa set, iba yung feel. Sa KKP, very light kami dun, e. It’s a light, fun…

    “Si Ange [Angeline Quinto], siyempre, very naturally funny na very light na person.

    "Pati si Paulo, pag nagsu-shoot kami ng eksena and everything, very... it’s very light.

    “Pero sa Against All Odds, pag nagshu-shoot kami ng eksena, very... you could feel the heaviness of the teleserye and the scene.

    “So it helps talaga na yung mga kasama ko sa teleserye ay mga magagaling talaga na actors.

    “Sa Against All Odds, siyempre si Judy Ann, si Tito Pip [Tirso Cruz III], si Tita Coney [Reyes]. And they really helped me out a lot.

    “Nakakalito minsan but… minsan mahirap. But kaya ko naman.”

    Sam Milby says billing issue is not the reason why Jericho Rosales backed out from ‘Against All Odds
    2/24/2013 12:19 AM
    by: Rachelle Siazon



    Sam Milby denied that the reason Jericho Rosales backed out from the teleserye Against All Odds is because of billing issue. When Push.com.ph asked him about it, Sam explained that unpredictable shooting schedule was primarily the reason why there have been changes in the cast. “Si John Estrada na ang kasama [na gaganap ng role sana ni Jericho]. I don’t know kung dapat ko sabihin pero last year pa kasama na si John sa original cast. Yung role na ‘yan kay John Estrada. Tapos nagkaroon ng A Beautiful Affair kaya ‘di niya pwedeng gawin yung Against All Odds. Eh dahil tumigil na kami sa taping at that time [nagkataon na] natapos na yung A Beautiful Affair. Dapat nga si Jericho ang naging kasama sa teleserye. I don’t know what actually happened with that. Ayun, tapos na taping ng A Beautiful Affair, si Echo ‘di na kasama, at si John Estrada na ulit,” he said in an interview with Push.com.ph last Friday, February 22.

    Although he’s first to be tapped as the leading man of Judy Ann Santos, the Rockoustic Heartthrob maintained that the role that Jericho was supposed to portray was equally vital in the story. So he didn’t think that Jericho would back out of the teleserye because of billing or anything like that. “Hindi [yun ang concern]. Napakalaking role din yung kay John Estrada. Magkaiba yung roles namin eh. Ayoko lang i-spoil. Basta very important talaga yung role niya. It’s a leading man role din. Just like yung sinasabi ko, yung role ko very grey yung character. Basta ayoko na ikwento ng masyado. Basta parehong important yung role namin. Lalo na sa first part na mas nakikita yung character ko. Tapos after the first few weeks mas magiging strong character ni John,” he explained.

    Sam admitted though that he was not able to speak to Jericho about it. However, the latter had previously mentioned in an interview that he backed out from the show in favor of an opportunity to do a Malaysian TV series.

    Meanwhile, Sam happily shared that he has resumed taping for Against All Odds, along with his ongoing teleserye Kahit Konting Pagtingin. With his crazy schedule, the 28-year-old actor admitted that he rarely has time to rest these days. “Every T-TH-S light ang taping for Kahit Konting Pagtingin, tapos M-W-F Against All Odds heavy drama naman. Ito ang first time in 7 years that I’ve been in the business na may dalawa akong sabay na teleserye. Laging movie tapos teleserye. Mas mahirap kapag teleserye kasi mas madaming eksena ang kinukunan sa isang araw. Pag movie mas konting emosyon. Eto mahirap talaga pero sobrang happy ako na madami akong blessings and I get to explore different characters.”

    Although he’s yet to shoot scenes with Judy Ann, Sam is excited because his Tagalog has improved in the past few months. As it is, Judy Ann is all praises for his acting skills except for his lack of fluency in Tagalog. “Happy ako na kahit papaano tumigil taping namin sa Against All Odds tapos nag-start kami sa Kahit Konting Pagtingin kasi nag-improve Tagalog ko. I think malaking tulong sa Against All Odds kasi nag-improve na ako sa tagalog. Nung nag-start kasi kaming mag-taping last year, ‘di ako masyado nagaral nung time na yun. Ngayon todo na pagaaral ko sa Tagalog. May tutor na ako, si Daisy Carino. She’s the dubbing director. Siya rin nagturo kay Gerald (Anderson). So ngayon ngayon unti-unti na akong gumagaling, pero siyempre may times na talagang nahirapan ako dahil sa accent ko. But the important thing is nag-iimprove ako.”

    Sam added that he hopes Judy Ann will notice his improved Tagalog when they shoot in Pampanga next week. “Wala pa siyang nasabi sa akin. Sana mapansin niya. First time ko siyang kasama sa soap. Siyempre yung level ni Judy Ann magaling talaga. Ayoko mag-suffer acting ko dahil sa Tagalog. Kailangan talaga todo lahat ng concentration sa character at sa Tagalog. I can say na yung desire ko to grow as a person, as an artist, has never been this great. I just want to keep growing so much in everything. Happy ako,” he beamed.

    Judai on working with Echo: 'Sayang at hindi natuloy'
    By Reyma Buan-Deveza, ABS-CBNnews.com
    Posted at 03/08/2013 2:31 PM | Updated as of 03/08/2013 4:44 PM

    MANILA, Philippines - Young superstar Judy Ann Santos finally broke her silence on the issue that actor Jericho Rosales will no longer be part of her upcoming series on ABS-CBN, "Against All Odds."

    "Well, may mga project na para sa kanya at may mga projects na hindi para sa kanya. But then again, someday, we can't say. Sayang lang na hindi natuloy pero baka mas may magandang opportunity for him," Santos said in an interview on Thursday.

    "Naniniwala ako na si Jericho is a good actor and kaya niyang itawid kahit anong project na ibigay sa kanya," the actress added.

    Sam Milby, one of the stars of "Against All Odds," said in a previous interview that John Estrada has been tapped to replace Rosales in the upcoming series.

    Milby also denied that Rosales backed out of the series because of billing problems. He said the issue was never raised and that it was really a conflict in the actor's schedule that caused the change in the casting.

    Meanwhile, Santos shared her excitement as she resumed taping for the soap.

    "Nag-resume na kami, nakaka-3 times taping na kami last week," she said.

    "Masaya, masaya talaga. Blessed ako na palagi akong nakakahanap ng katrabaho na very comfortable at very professional, at 'yung mga director na kasama namin. Nakakatuwa at nakaka-miss 'yung may pamilya kang nakikita sa production every week. Nakakapanibago lang sa simula pero ngayon ko na-realize na ito pala yung na-miss ko," Santos said.

    Judy Ann Santos admits she feels nervous about her comeback teleserye

    Judy Ann Santos happily revealed that taping for her comeback teleserye, Against All Odds is now in full swing after being stalled for a time so she could focus on the cooking show MasterChef Pinoy Edition, which had its grand finals last month. Juday, who is wife to Ryan Agoncillo and mom to kids Yohan and Lucho, had previously said that she would only do one project at a time so she could devote enough time to her family

    She added that they were able to tape three times last week for the upcoming teleserye. The Teleserye Queen will be starring with Sam Milby and KC Concepcion in the said series.

    Juday had only has good words for her co-stars. “Alam mo masaya… masaya talaga… blessed ako na lagi akong nakakahanap ng mga katrabahong very comfortable and very professional,” she explained in an interview during the summer station ID shoot for of ABS-CBN. “Siyempre ‘yung mga direktor na nakakasama namin, nakakatuwa na nakaka-miss din naman. Kahit paano na meron kang kapamilyang nakikita every week, so parang nakakapanibago lang nung simula, pero ngayon ko na-realize na, oo, eto nga ang na-miss ko.”

    Last February, it was announced that Jericho Rosales had to back out of the project to focus on his career in other parts of Asia. Juday said that maybe she and Echo are not yet meant to work together at this time. “Well, may mga projects talaga na para sa kanya at may mga projects siguro na hindi talaga para sa kanya… but then again siguro someday [we can work together]. We can’t say [what is going to happen in the future]… sayang lang na hindi natuloy pero baka may mas magandang opportunity for him and naniniwala ako na si Jericho is a good actor and kaya niyang itawid kahit na ano’ng project na ibigay sa kanya,” Juday explained.

    It has been three years since Juday did a teleserye, Habang May Buhay (2010), which is why, admittedly, she somewhat feels nervous about her comeback. “Oo naman, may kaba. Hindi lang naman ako kinakabahan sa mga pelikulang ginagawa ko, lalo na ngayon, medyo may tatlong taon din na akong di nakita ng tao sa teleserye. Sana ‘yung expectations hindi masyadong matindi,” she said, followed by a nervous laugh.

    “Pero sa kabila ng lahat ng ‘yon, dahil pinagkatiwalaan ako ng ABS-CBN at ni Sir Deo (Endrinal, business unit head) ng isang magandang-magandang project, ang trabaho ko lang talaga ngayon is [patunayan na] kaya kong maitawid itong teleseryeng ito.”

    The actress also revealed that she is slated to do a movie later this year. When prodded for additional details about the said project, Juday took a step back. “Surprise na muna, kasi… actually excited na nga akong sabihin, pero, di ba nga sabi nila huwag mo munang bilangin ang mga [sisiw] hangga’t di pa nagha-hatch. Pero for this year, ito ang pinakanakaka-excite na part ng career ko ng 2013. Sana… sana matuloy,” she related.

    Sam Milby: The actor is busy again
    By Isah V. Red | Posted on Mar. 07, 2013 at 6:02pm | 844 views

    After almost two years of being inactive in movies and television, 2013 will be an exciting and hectic year for Sam. With multiple projects on his hands, he is as busy now as he was when he first came out of the Pinoy Big Brother house.

    Sam is headlining the top rating romantic comedy primetime soap Kahit Konting Pagtingin, with Angeline Quinto and Paulo Avelino on ABS-CBN.

    Do you know that he now has a tag and it is “Comedy Romantic Heartthrob.” He only smiles when we tease him.

    Sam is also starring in Against All Odds—another primetime soap with Judy Ann Santos. “It’s a dream come true,” says Sam. “You will see a totally different Sam, the reason why it is very challenging and exciting for me at the same time.

    Sam finished shooting his scenes in Death March, his fourth independently produced film, to be released in cinemas this year. The film also brought out another challenging yet refreshing character for Sam. Co-starring with him are Zanjoe Marudo and Jason Abalos, among others.

    In a few months time, Sam will start shooting for a new movie project with Anne Curtis under Star Cinema.

    Despite his busy schedule, he still manages to record the theme song of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla’s upcoming movie, Nasa ‘Yo Na Ang Lahat. He was Star Cinema’s first choice to sing the theme.

    Last year (2012), “Hindi Kita liwan” his first single from the album Be Mine (Star Records) won Best Ballad in the 26th Awit Awards. It was one of Sam’s greatest dreams, to have an Awit Award trophy. His music will soon be heard overseas, as he prepares to release another solo album for Star Records to be released in other Asian countries.

    Sam’s solid fan following consists of various groups that stretch from the Philippines to countries around the globe making him one of the most followed Filipino male celebrities on Twitter (2.2 million followers as of January 2013).

    The Philippines’ one and only “Rockcoustic Heartthrob” remains to be one of the most versatile and most admired male personalities in the entertainment circle.
