Joross Gamboa says Julia Montes still in fine form as actress
After his appearance on “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” last year, Joross Gamboa will return to TV work through the series “24/7” that sees him working with those he did so before.
Among them is Julia Montes, who will be back on the boob tube following a three-year sabbatical from show business.
Asked how it is working with her anew, Joross praised the actress.
“Sobrang walang hirap (katrabaho),” he said. “Parang tuloy-tuloy lang pag-arte niya, parang hindi naman siya nag-adjust. Nakapag-deliver agad siya ng maayos.”
According to reports, “24/7” deal with a health crisis. A teaser photo uploaded by Dreamscape Production shows Julia playing a security agent at a medical center. All around her are personnel in full protective suits.
On the series, Joross plays the ex of Julia’s character and they have a kid.
He teased the audience might slightly get annoyed at his character.
“Mahal ko ‘yung bata pero ‘di kami okay ni Julia. So nag-aaway kami sa custody ng bata. Bale may bago na akong ka relasyon — si Melissa Ricks, nag-aagawan kami (ni Julia) sa custody ng anak namin,” the actor shared.
It was 16 years ago when Joross met Melissa through reality-based talent competition “Star Circle Quest” where they both won.
“Kaya maganda dito eh lahat kami nagkatrabaho na before. So nu’ng nagkita-kita kami naging madali ang lahat.”
Joross is excited for the show to air as it tackles a timely topic, what with the outbreak of the nCoV in different parts of the world.
“Pero nagkataon lang na ganito ‘yung topic,” he cleared. “Hindi naman talaga ginawa ‘to para takutin ‘yung mga tao.”
Aside from 24/7, Joross is part of the iWant Original Series under Lonewolf Films, “Fluid.” His co-stars are Roxanne Barcelo, Al Tantay, and Janice De Belen, introducing Ms. Globe 2015 Ann Colis.
“Ako ‘yung ex ni Roxanne na nagluko sa kanya tapos humihingi ng second chance. Ang challenge paano ko siya ma-win back kung meron na siyang iba.”
