"When I saw Julia joining ‘Ang Probinsyano,’ I said that is definitely a great move,” Yassi said in a virtual conference with ABS-CBN News. "Sigurado ako na-miss ng mga tao si Julia. Ang tagal niyang nagpahinga. I don’t know what she did, but it was definitely great for her."
Yassi also believes Julia's comeback would make fans really happy.
"For her to be coming back and be seen in ‘Ang Probinsyano’ will make so many people happy. I just wish them the best. Alam ko na kahit ano’ng gawin ng ‘Ang Probinsyano’ family, it’s always worked on hard at laging pinag-isipan nang mabuti,” she said.
It was in January this year when Yassi bid goodbye to her character Alyanna in the series.
According to her, she had a hard time letting go of her character especially since she portrayed it for five years.
“It was hard, opo. Sobrang mahirap po to take myself away from Alyanna kasi po parang naging ako na po siya dahil sa araw-araw po naming pagte-taping, dala-dala ko na po talaga siya. Hindi ko po siya makakalimutan pero kinaya ko na po siyang itabi for now to play new characters, new experiences, and new projects,” she said.
