Julia Barretto Gets Heavy Training in Acting
July 10, 2013 by ABS-CBN
Kapamilya teen star Julia Barretto is grateful to ABS-CBN for getting her career off to a good start with the top-rating “Wansapanataym” special, which she topbills alongside child wonders Zaijian Jaranilla and Xyriel Manabat.
“I’m very thankful to ABS-CBN for giving me this opportunity to be a part of another ‘Wansapanataym’ special. Aside from being my training ground in acting, it also gives us the chance to teach and impart kiddie TV viewers with good values,” said Julia, who admittedly enjoys working with Zaijian and Xyriel. “I enjoy spending time with them on the set because they are like my younger siblings. They are fun to be with, kind and very professional.”
Meanwhile, unlike the good working relationship of Julia, Zaijian, and Xyriel in real life, the friendship of their characters in “Wansapanataym Presents Petrang Paminta” will be tested this Saturday (July 13), as Aya (Xyriel) tells the secret of her sister Petra (Julia) and the ‘prince of peppers’ Pampam (Zaijian) to others. Now that their world is in danger, dwarves decide to throw Pampam out of their kingdom and transform him into a human. How will Pampam’s friendship with the sisters change especially now that the love of his life Petra is getting closer with her childhood friend Sancho (Diego Loyzaga)?
Together with Julia, Xyriel, Diego, and Zaijian are Ruby Rubi, Kiray Celis, Atak Aranas, Maricar de Mesa, Epy Quizon, Jayson Gainza, Tess Antonio, Joey Paras, Jeff Luna, and Alora Sasam. Based from the novel of Pablo Gomez, “Wansapanataym Presents Petrang Paminta” is written by Noreen Capili, Joel Mercado, and Yam Tanangco, and directed by box-office director Wenn V. Deramas.
Don’t miss the continuation of the four-week special of the storybook of Pinoy kids, “Wansapanataym” this Saturday, 6:45pm, after “Kapamilya: Deal or No Deal” on ABS-CBN. For updates, log on to www.abs-cbn.com or follow @abscbndotcom on Twitter.
