REMEMBERING JULIE VEGA: A superstar gone too soon!

yestoyesto Administrator PEx Admin
Once in a decade, the showbiz industry will meet a special name that would define what it takes to be a REAL STAR.. Naturally blessed with charm,talent and charisma; this face has the ability to capture one's heart by just a smile or a meaningful tear from a fictional scene. We tend to love these type of stars, who we considered as part of our daily lives as we watch and support them.Unfortunately, some names who are meant for stardom are taken from the industry way too soon!

jvega5.jpg

Julie Pearl Apostol Postigo or better known as Julie Vega started her showbiz career at the age of 6. She was known for her roles in Roberta,Mga Mata Ni Angelita, AnnaLiza,Daddy's Little Angel and could possibly her most controversial movie, Lovingly Yours, Helen: The Movie. She was said to be the biggest star during that decade, having Janice de Belen as her closest rival.

She also popularized the iconic song " Somewhere In My Past" .

At the peak of her career, she had this mysterious illness that caused her death. Doctors diagnosed her with a form of demyelinating disease. But speculations of her cause of death became noisier because of accusations of evil possession (her role in her last movie was a possessed girl)

She could have been a bigger star, she could have been the young superstar. All will just be a "COULD HAVE BEEN".

What do you remember most about her? What are the stories about her that fascinate (or haunt ) you until today?What made her a special star that will keep her name last for generations?

    Magbibigay pugay lang sa late Queen Julie Vega ng GMA! :lol:
  • ang ganda ganda talaga ni Ms. Julie. :handsdown: Kung hindi siya maagang namayapa, I am sure na mas lalo pa siyang naging sikat, I saw her clips sa youtube... ang daming naiyak at nagluksa noong namatay siya.

    Siya ang kino-consider na ORIGINAL SOAP OPERA QUEEN ng GMA via ANNA LIZA. *okay*

    ^Chiqy, may clips ka ba ni Ms. Julie? Paki-post naman oh! :D
  • Looking forward to the JULIE VEGA BOOK:
    source: Julie Vega's FB PAGE

    BOOK UPDATE: A great morning to everyone. Someone emailed me about Darling's upcoming book and when it will be released. Editing stage still but this we can assure you all - kaunti na lang talaga ang ihihintay natin! We are working doubly hard for the publication legalities while the editor is at work, I guess you can say we're hitting 10 birds with one stone. Alam kasi namin na everyone is eager to see it in the market.

    We've had some setbacks, yes. Actually, maraming obstacles pala, hehe, Pero it's a part of every writer's life na ma-turn down ang manuscript for so many different reasons. Parte talaga ng buhay ng manunulat ang rejection. Just count the number of rejections that J.K. Rowling got bago ma-release ang Harry Potter series! This is no different.

    But our assurance for everyone is that - we are on DOUBLE TIME if not quadruple time para matapos na ang project finally.

    The coming week, I'll be sitting down with the editor and I'm also meeting up with several printing presses. Don't worry, sabi naman ni Kuya Joseph Postigo, we'll make sure na yung abot-kaya pa rin ang price nung book. For the collectors out there, we're also thinking of a coffee table book format.

    So standby lang po tayo, MALAPIT na talaga.

    MAY 7, 1985: JULIE VEGA OF ANNA LIZA FAME DIES

    Julie Vega, well-known television teen actress, died at 6:30 p.m. yesterday at the Lung Center of the Philippines. She would have turned 17 years old on May 21. Julie was rushed by her parents, Drs. Julio and Pearlie Postigo, to the Lung Center 5 p.m. yesterday from the Quezon City Institute where she was under confinement for the last three days. She died of broncho-pneumonia.

    Julie (real name Julie Pearlie Postigo) had a heart attack sometime last February, but this has been kept from the public and from her, especially. She just graduated from high school at the St. Joseph’s College in Quezon City. Julie’s major role in the TV show Anna Liza had gained wide recognition for her acting ability as a child actress.

    At press time last night, Regal Film producer Lily Monteverde was reported seeing the funeral arrangements, Julie having been one of the earliest and the producer’s favorite Regal baby.

    We say goodbye to February - our Basang Sisiw month - as we post here a Jingle Extra Hot photo of Julie Vega, Janice de Belen, Che-che & Sheryl Cruz. This was taken from a scene in Basang Sisiw which toppled box-office records all over the country in 1981.

    I will quote DIWA_1's old post regarding the original BASANG SISIW so those of us who don't know the real version will get a fair idea on the content of the original box-office hit.

    Sadly, masyadong iba kasi yun version na ginawa ng KAPUSO. Disappointing. :shrug::bop:

    Si Che-che favorite ko dati, hehehe. Anak ni Sylvia La Torre. Sikat na child star dati noong late 70s at early 80s. Walang role na Maxene Magalona noon. Ibang-iba yung story ngayon.

    Mahirap lang sila sa probinsya. Yung Nanay nila pupunta ng Maynila para maghanap ng work, tapos naaksidente yung bus, nawala Nanay nila. Tapos namatay yung Tatay nila (as in inilibing kaya no comeback na), nasaksak yata kasi sinundan yung Nanay para hanapin. Hindi ko na matandaan kung sino ang Tatay dahil tatlong eksena lang yata pinakita. Lumuwas sila ng Maynila para hanapin nanay nila. Tapos ayun naging palaboy na sila. Nagkahiwa-hiwalay. Then nagkasama-sama. Yung bunso si Niño, baby ang gumanap dun, bitbit lang lagi ni Julie Vega. Then, isa sa kanila nakita yung Nanay nila may asawa ng iba, si Janice yata, tapos hindi na siya/sila kilala. Apparently, nagka-amnesia si ina. Later on, naalala na rin niya. Ayun, in the end nagka-sama-sama na sila.
  • Ang maikli, ngunit makulay na buhay ng dating 'Soap Opera Princess' na si Julie Vega
    MAC MACAPENDEG, GMA NewsJanuary 15, 2014 11:37pm

    Ang kaniyang maamong mata at mala-anghel na mukha ang imaheng iniwan ng isa sa mga "Regal Cry Babies" noong dekada 80 at kinilalang 'Soap Opera Princess' na si Julie Vega.

    Ang maagang pagpanaw sa murang edad na 16 noong May 6, 1985 ang pumutol sa tinatamong kasikatan ng teen star na si Julie. Maging ang dahilan ng kaniyang pagkamatay ay naging malaking palaisipan sa mga taong sumubaybay sa kaniya.

    Nakilala si Julie Vega sa kaniyang kauna-unahang lead role bilang "Angelita" sa pelikulang "Mga Mata ni Angelita" (1978). Sinundan ito ng kaniyang title role sa telebisyon na "Annaliza" (1980), at bilang anak nina Dante Rivero at Boots Anson Roa sa pelikulang, "Ang Pag-ibig Ko'y Huwag Mong Sukatin" (1974) noong siya'y anim na taong gulang pa lamang.

    "Napakalaking artista ni Julie Vega na may maraming fans and in demand sa movie at TV," wika ni Peter Ledesma, isang showbiz columnist.

    Sa isang episode ng "Tunay Na Buhay," nakapanayam ng host na si Rhea Santos ang ina ni Julie Vega na si Perla Postigo upang magbalik- tanaw sa naging buhay ng batang aktres.

    Bago maging 'Julie Vega'

    [CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]Isinilang si Julie Pearl Apostol Postigo o Julie Vega noong May 21, 1968. Isang dentista ang kaniyang ama at isang government employee naman ang ina. Siya ang nag-iisang babae sa anim na magkakapatid.

    Kuwento ng kaniyang ina, bibong bata si Julie at kumaway ang mundo ng showbiz sa batang aktres nang isama siya ng isang kaibigan para subukan mag-audition para sa isang advertisement.

    Sa murang edad na anim, sumabak sa pag-aartista si Julie na may screen name pa noon na "Darling Postigo" sa pelikulang, "Ang Pag-ibig Ko'y Huwag Mong Sukatin" (1974) kasama sina Dante Rivero at Boots Anson Roa.

    "Seryoso si Julie sa pag-aartista, naghahanda for a scene pero marunong din magbiro ang bata. Ang biruan namin parati non pagmalapit na siyang umiyak o kailangan siyang paiyakin, ang usapan namin 'O sige, buksan mo na ang gripo ng mata mo,' ganon," pag-alala pa ni Boots.[/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

    Unang acting award

    [CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]Mas nakilala ang aktres mula nang bumida na siya sa kaniyang title role na "Mga Mata ni Angelita" (1978). Dito, ginamit na niya ang screen name na "Julie Vega."

    Kuwento ni Nanay Perla, "Naghahanap sila ng batang babae na mahabang buhok, magandang mata, mestiza."

    Sa pelikulang ito, nakamit ni Julie ang "Best Child Address" award mula sa Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences Awards (FAMAS).

    Muli namang kinilala ng FAMAS ang kaniyang talento sa pag-arte bilang "Best Child Actress" nang makasama ang "The King" na si Fernando Poe Jr., sa pelikulang "Durugin si Totoy Bato" (1979). [/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

    Soap Opera Princess

    [CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]Unang inalok kay Julie Vega ang karakter ni Maria Flor de Luna na umere noon sa RPN-9. Ngunit hindi nila tinanggap ang proyekto at napunta kay Janice de Belen.

    "Prior to that, tumawag sa'kin ang Channel 9 [IBC], kukunin si Julie to play the role of Flor de Luna, si Janice noon wala pa. Hindi namin tinanggap 'yon, sabi namin, binabawalan kami ni Larry Santiago na tumanggap kahit saan sa TV," kuwento ni Nanay Perla.

    Ngunit hindi rito nagtapos ang karera ni Julie sa telebisyon. Sa taong 1980, bumida ang aktres sa soap opera na "Annaliza."

    "Nag-rate kami nang mataas at natalo namin ang Flor de Luna, hindi na namin pinabayaan. Every now and then, nagmi-meeting kami at kung ano ang gustong tao, 'yon ang binibigay namin. Talagang kung ano ang nakikita sa television, yon siya," pahayag ni Direk Gil Soriano, ang direktor ng Annaliza.

    Dahil din dito, kinilala ang aktres bilang "Soap Opera Princess" noong dekada 80.[/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

    Bigating mga artista

    [CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]Hindi lamang sa telebisyon napanood si Julie Vega sa taong 1980 dahil bumida rin siya sa apat na pelikula kung saan nakasama niya ang ilan sa pinakamalaking artista sa Philippine show business.

    Ito ang "Anak ng Atsay" kasama ang "Hari Ng Komedya" na si Dolphy; ang "Angelita Ako Ang Iyong Ina" kasama ang batikang aktres na si Susan Roces; "Kape't Gatas" kasama ang yumaong aktor na si Chiquito; at ang kaniyang title role na "Pompa."

    Sa pelikulang "Kape't Gatas," nagwagi ang aktres bilang "Best Child Performer" sa 1980 Metro Manila Film Festival.

    Ayon kay Nanay Perla, naging masaya si Julie sa kaniyang trabaho bilang artista.[/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

    Regal Cry Babies

    [CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]Sa edad na 13, napabilang si Julie sa mga prized talent ng Regal Entertainment o mas kilala sa tawag na "Regal Cry Babies."

    Kasama ni Julie sa "Regal Cry Babies" sina Snooky Serna, Janice de Belen, Maricel Soriano, dahil sa husay nila sa pag-iyak.

    Pagmamalaki ni Nanay Perla, "Sa kaniya lang 'yon, walang nagturo. Even her acting is her own. Talaga yatang ipinanganak siyang ganon."

    Maituturing umano si Julie bilang isa sa mga paboritong aktres ng Regal.

    "We signed up a contract with Regal and of course, masaya kami dahil kahit sa pelikula magkakasama pa rin kami, sa production, sa film production particularly sa Regal, kami pa rin ang magkakasama don," kwento ni PJ Abellana, isa sa mga nakatrabaho ni Julie.

    Dahil na rin sa mga nagawa nitong pelikula para sa Regal films na lahat ay certified box office hits, tatlong magkakasunod na pelikula pa ang kaniyang nagawa sa taong 1983. Ito ay ang "Don't Cry For Me Papa," "Where Love Has Gone," at "Daddy's Little Darlings."[/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

    Julie Vega bilang singer

    [CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]Bukod sa pagiging aktres sa telebisyon at sa pelikula, ipinamalas din ni Julie ang kaniyang talento sa pag-awit. Sa katunayan, siya mismo ang kumanta ng mga theme song sa ilang pelikulang ginawa niya kabilang na ang "Dear Mama" at "Where Love Has Gone."

    "Mahal niya [ang pagkanta] dahil pinag-aaral niya. Maski naliligo 'yan, kumakanta," saad ni Nanay Perla.

    Ayon naman kay Mon del Rosario, isang composer, "No'ng nagre-rehearse na kami, nagulat ako— ang ganda pala ng boses niya. Hindi siya belter pero malamig ang boses niya, makapal and I think, sabi ko maganda ang kalalabasan and ganun nga."

    Wika naman ni Imelda Papin, "Napaka-sweet ng kaniyang boses and nakita namin ang kaniyang potential na sabi namin na talagang maghihit siya sa recording."

    Sa kaniyang mga trabaho sa pagkanta, pelikula, at telebisyon, hindi raw kinakitaan ng pagkapagod si Julie. Katunayan, excited raw ang dalagita tuwing may bago siyang proyekto.

    "She is serious about her job. She never complains. Sabi niya, gusto pa raw niya and role na hindi pa niya nagawa," pag-alaala ng ina.[/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

    "The Untold Story of Julie Vega"

    [CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]Sa susunod na taon, nakatakdang lumabas ang librong "The Untold Story of Julie Vega" na isinulat ni Shella Villamor. Para umano ito sa mga tagahanga at sa mga taong gustong malaman ang istorya ng "Soap Opera Princess" na hindi pa nila napanood sa telebisyon.

    Ani Shella, "Doon pa lang sa title, marami tayong malalaman about Julie Vega na hindi pa napanood sa mga interview, hindi pa napanood sa mga pelikula, at saka kung ano mang mga katanungan na bumabagabag; kumbaga doon sa mga isipan ng tao ay mabibigyang kasagutan na, I might as well do her life story."

    Naisip umano ng awtor na sa libro na lamang hindi naikukuwento ang istorya ni Julie Vega. Nagkaroon na ng pelikula ang buhay ng aktres na may titulong, "Life Story of Julie Vega" at napanood na rin ito sa telebisyon sa "Tunay Na Buhay."

    Sa kabila ng kasikatan, hindi pinabayaan ng aktres ang kaniyang pag-aaral.

    Ayon sa kaniyang ina, hindi raw nila pinapayagan na magkaroon si Julie ng taping tuwing may pasok.

    "Hindi kami papayag na may taping siya on school days. Magtaping siya Friday afternoon at puwede pa siya magdamag, basta kinabukasan hindi na siya magta-taping," kwento nito.[/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

    Ang huling pelikula

    [CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]Ang "Lovingly Yours, Helen" (1984) ang huling naging pelikula ni Julie, kung saan ginampanan niya ang karakter ng isang babaeng sinapian ng masamang espiritu o may temang exorcism.

    Paliwanag ni Nanay Perla, tutol siya na gawin ni Julie ang pelikula ngunit nagustuhan daw ito ng anak.

    "'Yang 'Lovingly Yours,' ayaw ko 'yan e, nagustuhan niya— diyan siya nagkasakit. Siguro a month after that, doon na siya nagkasakit," ayon sa ina ng aktres.

    Dahil sa pagkakasakit matapos gawin ang pelikula, hindi naiwasan noon na may mag-isip kung may kinalaman ang tema ng pelikula sa nangyari sa batang aktres.

    Pero ayon kay Nanay Perla, ang pagsama ng kalusugan ng anak ay bunga ng naging problema nito sa kalusugan batay sa paliwanag ng sumuring duktor.

    "Sabi ng duktor sa'min, the spinal nerve, unti-unti daw nagninisnis. Kung lalakad siya sa ospital, hindi siya makalakad mag-isa kundi si-zigzag siya," pagbahagi ng ginang.

    Sa medical findings ni Julie, sinabing mayroong "Guillain-Barré syndrome" ang aktres kung saan nagiging paralisado ang kaniyang katawan at apektado rin ang peripheral nervous system.

    "Hindi na siya makagalaw. Ang last request niya, 'Mama, please bring me to house of prayer.' Dinala namin sa doon," wika ni Nanay Perla.

    Ang medical records na lang umano ang kanilang pinaniwalaan sa tunay na naging sanhi ng maagang pagkawala ni Julie.

    "We were praying na lang that time kasi we can't talk to her anymore because she was on coma," dagdag ng ina ng aktres.[/CROUCHING-TIGER-DISAPPEARING-SPOILER]

    Naging maikli man ang naging buhay ni Julie Vega, marami pa rin siyang mga magandang alaala na iniwan sa industriya ng show business at sa mga tao. Isang patunay dito ang pagbuhos sa burol ng aktres ng mga nais magpaabot ng pakikiramay at pagmamahal, na hanggang ngayon ay nananatili kahit wala na ang kanilang batang idolo. -- Mac Macapendeg/FRJ, GMA News

    Very informative 'tong thread ni Ms. Julie Vega.

    *okay* *okay* *okay*
  • MGA MATA NI ANGELITA and it's SEQUEL... ANGELITA, AKO ANG IYONG INA are now available in DVD. Thank you naman sa DVDs, at napanood ko na pareho, and I liked the message of the movies... a wandering child who ends up helping the people that she bumps with. May normal na tao, mayroon ding supernatural siyang na-encounter. She was a former blind girl na pinahiram ng mata ng MAHAL NA BIRHEN kaya nakakita siya. In effect, nagkaroon din siya ng special gifts/abilities, at yan ang nagamit niya para makatulong sa mga nakaka-encounter niya.

    The HIT MOVIE was adapted into a TV series by GMA in 2007 via MGA MATA NI ANGHELITA featuring KRYSTAL REYES as ANGHELITA.

    aaa11f7cf.jpg

    **Sadly, the TV SERIES didn't give justice to the content of the original FILM/S. Hindi maganda yun content ng adaptation. Masyadong iba, masyadong nabago. Lagi lang naaabuso si Anghelita ng sindikato, tapos ginawa pang apo ng mangkukulam si Anghelita sa TV series.

    Sana naman next time... pag gagawa ng adaptation ang TV NETWORKS, stick to the core content of the original source. :)

    Darling. On May 21, 1968, in Quezon City, Julie Pearl Apostol Postigo was born to dentist Julio Postigo from Zamboanga del Sur and Perla Apostol (nicknamed Pearl) from Iligan City, Lanao del Norte.

    The beautiful meztiza girl, Julie Pearl was nicknamed Darling by her parents and 5 brothers James (nicknamed Jimmy), Jeffrey (nicknamed Joey, 1960–1983), Jonathan (nicknamed Noni), Joseph (nicknamed Toti), and Jerry (nicknamed Steve). She was also called Tata (which means youngest child in the Visayan language).

    A Big, Big Child Movie Star. In 1974, while performing at a Christmas party at the Quezon Institute, where her mother then worked, the 6-year old Julie Pearl was discovered by renowned film and stage director Lamberto Avellana (1st National Artist for Film and Theater) and veteran actress Boots Anson-Roa. Julie Pearl was offered and became a commercial model of Purefoods hotdog and Band-Aid.

    The following year, in 1975 she was introduced as Darling Postigo in her first film entitled "Ang Pag-ibig Ko’y Huwag Mong Sukatin" as the young daughter of Boots Anson-Roa and Dante Rivero.

    Showing her good potentials in acting she got nominated as Famas Best Child actress from next movie "Mortal" with Dindo Fernando at the age of 7. She has done several movies as Darling Postigo in films like, "Mga Tinik Ng Babae" (as the young Alma Moreno), "Amorseko, Kumakabit, Kumakapit," an action movie with George Estregan and Vilma Santos and has done several other commercials like "Green Cross Alcohol", "La Germania" and a toothpaste commercials.

    FOREVER YOUNG: JULIE VEGA (continued...)

    But it was until she joined the search for "Mga Mata Ni Angelita" (a popular DZRH Radio Drama) whom she competes with over 200 other child aspirants. Despite placing only third, her angelic beautiful face had been chosen to play the role of "Angelita." In her first major lead and breakthrough 1978 film "Mga Mata ni Angelita," she started using the screen name Julie Vega upon the recommendation of film producer and director Larry Santiago, who owned Larry Santiago Productions which produced the film. She was supported by an "All Superstar Casts" in the movie and turned out as a "Blockbuster" hit.

    "Mga Mata Ni Angelita" won Julie as Famas Best Child Actress in 1979. Then came the remake of "Roberta" (1979), "Durugin si Totoy Bato" (1979) and movie adaptation of the popular comics series "Pompa" (1980), "Kape't Gatas" (1980) where she won as the Film Fest Best Child Performer and tied with Nino Muhlach, a sequel "Angelita, Ako Iyong Ina" (1980) with Susan Roces and "Anak Ng Atsay" (1980) with Nora Aunor.

    In 1981, she did 3 movies, "Milagro sa Porta Vega," "Flor de Liza," and "Mga Basang Sisiw" where she was again nominated for Best Child Actress.

    FOREVER YOUNG: JULIE VEGA

    Rejecting Flor de Luna. The fact is "Flor de Luna" (the popular TV series on Channel 9) was first offered to Julie but they couldn't accept it because of an exclusive movie contract with Larry Santiago and her hectic schedules in making films, shows and schooling. Later on "Flor de Luna" was offered to her best friend Janice de Belen.

    Julie-Vega-%2528Moviestar%252C-May-.jpg

    Anna Liza. She was 11 when the title role "Anna Liza" (aired on GMA network, 1979-1985) came her way. Barely 9 months later after turning down "Flor de Luna."

    "Anna Liza" became a "household" name. By 6 o'clock in the evening, people nailed in their television from Sunday to Friday cried, laugh and fell in love with her. The screen name Julie Vega was never used in "Anna Liza." She was simply billed as "Anna Liza" as commanded by her producer Larry Santiago. Nevertheless, her legion of fans made the series a top rater until the end. Julie blossomed as a competent actress of her generation and begged as one of the most "Angelic Beautiful Faces" in Philippine showbiz.

    FOREVER YOUNG: JULIE VEGA (continued...)

    First Love

    Aside from acting, Vega also became a successful singer in her own right. She initially refused to pursue a singing career of her own, but after repeated proddings from her older brother Joey, who noticed her beautiful singing voice, she finally consented to doing so. She took formal voice lessons under renowned songwriter Cecille Azarcon to further hone her singing voice. With the training she received, she was able to sing many of the theme songs of the movies she appeared in like Dear Mama, Where Love Has Gone, Don't Cry for Me Papa, and Iiyak Ka Rin.

    It was during one of her singing promotions for Where Love Has Gone that Julie Vega was discovered by Bong Carreon, who then offered her to be a recording artist for the then newly formed Emerald Recording Company owned by Carreon himself and his then wife, the famous Filipina singer Imelda Papin. Her debut single Somewhere In My Past, composed by Mon Del Rosario, was a major hit which became a certified gold record in only its first few weeks of release and would prove to be her most enduring hit and the one song she would be most identified with. The single’s success prompted Bong Carreon and Imelda Papin to launch Julie Vega as a full-time solo artist by coming up with the latter’s 1985 debut album "First Love," which included Somewhere In My Past and produced her further hit songs like Someone Special, The Memory Will Remain, and the title track itself.

    According to Julie herself, she particularly liked singing because it is through this medium that she is able to best express her inner thoughts and feelings. This became especially true after the tragic loss of her brother Joey, to whom she was particularly very close to. Joey was stabbed to death in a car by hired killers, who mistook him for another person they were hired to look for and then kill, while hanging out with his friends in 1983. His untimely death at the age of 22 proved to be devastating for the young Julie, who was then made to repeatedly wish to join him in death. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julie_Vega)
