In the daytime action-drama series Asintado, Julia Montes plays Ana, the loving daughter of Vicente (Lito Pimentel) and the caring granddaughter of Lola Puring (Gloria Sevilla). Just like her character, Julia is not afraid to show her love for her family.
In her previous interviews, Julia was very vocal that her life would be "complete" if she could only meet her biological dad. She believes that she wouldn’t be who she is today if things did not happen the way it did.
Julia, born as Mara Schnittka, emotionally revealed on Magandang Buhay that her German father named Martin Schnittka kept on apologizing to her when they finally met last December 2016. The two met at a restaurant in Cubao, Quezon City. On her Instagram account, she posted a photo of her meeting with her father and thanked her followers because their reunion was made possible with the help of her fans, friends and one of her cousins.
She shared that she never harboured ill feelings towards her biological father even if he left her with her mother when she was still a baby. She was raised by her deaf Filipina mother and her grandmother who’s very close to her.
Following their first meeting, Julia was reunited with her father again when they went on a trip to the beautiful islands of El Nido, Palawan last year. She went on vacation with her father and her two half-brothers, David and Kevin.
Today, let’s take a look at these rare and heartwarming moments of Julia with her one and only “King.”
