Not everyone can have such a successful career in show business. Others can only be envious of Julia Montes’ resume which spans close to two decades as a Kapamilya actress. She started off with minor roles in the weekend anthology series Maalaala Mo Kaya and the 2004 teleserye Hiram. It was in 2015 when she finally got her big break in the industry after becoming part of the kiddie gag show Goin’ Bulilit.
In 2010, she snagged one of her most iconic portrayals—Clara from the remake of the 1992 classic Mara Clara. For this hit drama, she worked alongside today’s blockbuster actress Kathryn Bernardo. Their duo became popular and eventually led to Julia’s movie debut in 2011’s “Way Back Home”.
Julia earned many praises for her early work, but she actually had a lot more to offer as she grew on and off set. In 2012, she was partnered with FPJ’s Ang Probisyano lead actor Coco Martin for Walang Hanggan. Meanwhile, in the big screens, she starred in “The Reunion” and “The Strangers”. The following year, her performance in “A Moment in Time” beside Coco gifted her with her first nomination for Best Actress in the 62nd FAMAS Awards.
She continued to prove her acting prowess with roles in the 2014 teleserye Ikaw Lamang and the 2015 romantic horror movie “Halik sa Hangin”. When talking about Julia’s career, how can we miss Doble Kara. For this project, she portrayed two characters who were twins. As a result, she received a Best Performance by an Actress in the 14th Gawad Tanglaw Awards, and Best Drama Actress in the 30th PMPC Star Awards.
Now, the latest addition to her long list of accomplishments is the weekly action drama series 24/7. This is her television comeback after a yearlong hiatus. How excited are you to see Julia Montes on your television screens again? There is no doubt that this will be another memorable performance for the Kapamilya actress. So, make sure to look forward to every episode, Sundays after Rated K.
