Judy Ann Santos doesn’t want people to think there’s something more than meets the eye in her rejection of the role of Hilaria Aguinaldo, Emilio Aguinaldo’s first wife in ER Ejercito’s production of “El Presidente, the Emilio Aguinaldo Story.”
It’s just that she can’t relate to her character since Judy Ann would rather play someone she can observe and see in the flesh.
“Malaking proyekto ito. Malaking pelikula ito. Pero bilang artista,naniniwala ako na dapat may pinagbabasehan ang karakter ko. Kasi hindi na naman siya buhay,” she said at the presscon sponsored by Kraft for Eden Cheese, which Judy Ann and daughter Yohan are endorsing.
Judy Ann admits she can’t relate to the character because she doesn’t know Hilaria personally. And because of this, she might not do justice to the role.
“Ayokong mapulaan ang trabaho ko. Ayokong mapulaan ang craft ko kasi mahal ko ang trabaho ko.”
