It has already been a year since the last we saw her in action through her starring role in the weekly action-drama series 24/7. Thus, we couldn’t help but be excited to see Julia Montes back on television as she joins FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano on its upcoming new chapter.
And a few weeks after the grand announcement that truly delighted her fans and the avid shippers of her team-up with Coco Martin, who plays the titular character Cardo Dalisay, the seasoned actress has already begun her preparations for her arguably most challenging gig to date!
Last August 9, an online exclusive video of her first day of training as Coco’s newest leading lady Mara. And on Wednesday, August 11, they uploaded a sneak peek of the second day of her training, which was comprised of kickboxing and fisticuffs.
Compared to the first one, this one seemingly had a skit. It started off with Julia lifting some weights while two women were having a fisticuff on the ring. Upon seeing that one of them got knocked out, she stopped what she was doing and stepped on the ring, asking the winner for a bout through her fiery stare.
With her powerful punches, she was able to topple down her opponent. Three spectators, which were all men, hopped on the ring as well, only to be knocked down by Julia. As all her challenges were laying on the floor, she immediately stepped out of the ring and ran.
In the recent exclusive interview with Coco-Jul, it was revealed that Coco has been very much hands-on with her training, not just for FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, but with the 26-year-old actress’ action stints in her previous series Asintado and 24/7.
While we’re anticipating the arrival of Julia on the next chapter of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, let’s not miss an episode of the long-running primetime series, weeknights on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z Channel 11
