Julia Barretto, on September 6, had to explain her own line in the trailer of TV5’s newest teleserye Di Na Muli after it kept viewers wondering.
The particular line in the trailer was this: “hindi lahat ng totoo ay kailangang aminin,” to which, the actress, in the show’s press conference, referred to it simply as a little bit “secretive” to avoid hurting someone.
“I think, ano s’ya, it’s the same as what you don’t know won’t hurt you. Siguro hindi lahat nang bagay kailangan malaman mo para hindi na rin masakit,” the actress said.
Before making such an answer, the Di Na Muli star had a long pause, “ensuring” that her statement would not make it into tomorrow’s headlines.
“Nag-iisip ako ng way na sagutin ‘to na bukas hindi s’ya ‘yung headline eh,” Barretto joked.
Aside from Julia, present in the virtual presscon were her leading men, Marco Gumabao and Marco Gallo, including seasoned actress Angelu De Leon. The show’s screenwriter, Noreen Capili, was present as well.
When asked how was her working experience with the two Marcos, Barretto shared how glad fun it was working with them.
“I have a good experience with… parehas naman mabait, parehas na madaling katrabaho, and siguro more than anything, I appreciate na we felt each other’s support.
“Dahil s’yempre iba rin yung taping style ngayon eh. Everyday halos ang taping, magkakasama kami nang isang b’wan. They made me really comfortable to be around them and to do the difficult scenes with them.”
But if it is about making comparisons, Barretto rejected the thought of who’s the better actor among the two, pointing that she does not compare but rather “appreciate.”
“I appreciate the two of them because nakita ko talaga yung commitment nila sa character, nakita ko yung commitment nila na bago yung taping day namin, aral na aral yung mga eksena, aral na aral ang mga emosyon.
“And I appreciate that they both have different techniques, and they both have different styles. And I’m just glad to be able to witness all of that from beginning to end. Kasi ang laking tulong sa’kin. Napadali ang trabaho ko,” she stressed.
Di Na Muli is about a young woman named Yanna (Barretto) who discovered she has a gift of determining a person’s lifespan. However, she considered it as a curse rather than a gift. But all changed when she met Mico (Gumabao) and CJ (Gallo), as the two finally opens her eyes on using her power to help the people around her.
The show includes Angelu de Leon, Bobby Andrews, Baron Geisler, Krissha Viaje, Andre Yllana, Lander Vera Perez, Katya Santos, and Joe Vargas.
Catch the teleserye coming September 18, every Saturday, 8 p.m., only on TV5.
