Juday, hinasa ni Maricel?

On being a mom? She’s an inspiration. In the kitchen? She’s an idol. But on acting and crying on cue? Judy Ann Santos is a legend. 

No wonder younger actresses look up to her. She makes drama look so effortless and her tears look so magical on screen, it never fails to bring out ours. 

We got to ask the Queen of Philippine Soap Opera about it on an episode of Star Cinema Chat last Monday, January 15, and she replied, "Siguro mababa lang talaga 'yung luha ko 'pag dating sa trabaho. Lalo na nung dalaga ako.” 

Now, even touching TV commercials make her tear up. “Ngayon, makakita lang ako ng commercial ng mag-ina at mag-ama, naiiyak na ko. Nung dalaga ako, sadyang mababa lang talaga 'yung luha ko.”

It also helps that she has the ability to get into any character right away. “Siguro mabilis lang ako pumasok sa character. 'Pag lahat ng tao, nagta-trabaho na, automatic na sa akin,” said Judy Ann. 

But it’s definitely not something she learned overnight. The award-winning star noted that she just got lucky to have worked with other talented actresses like the Diamond Star Maricel Soriano when she was younger. 

“‘Yung biglang anak talaga ako ni Ate Maricel or anak niya ko. Nahasa ako sa kanya. Nahasa ako sa kanya, 'pag nasa set na siya, nagi-internalize na ko,” she explained. 

Judy Ann continued, “Kahit 'di ako kasama sa eksena, nagi-internalize ako. Siguro ma-swerte lang ako sa mga taong nakasama ko kasi tama 'yung mga nabigay nilang punto sa akin." 

Don’t forget to catch her in the film “Ang Dalawang Mrs Reyes” with Angelica Panganiban, now in 200 cinemas nationwide. 

It follows the story of Lianne (Judy Ann) and Cindy (Angelica), two very different women with the same goal; and that is to keep their husbands. 

But soon, they realized what they need to do is to keep them apart... from each other. 

Will they get their revenge or will the jokes still be on them until in the end? 

Directed by Jun Robles Lana, the film also stars Joross Gamboa, JC de Vera, Andrea Brillantes, Carmi Martin, and more.
