'FPJ's Ang Probinsyano' viewers will see Julia Montes on the show soon

Julia Montes has started shooting her first scenes for the long-running series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. 

In a Facebook post by Dreamscape Entertainment on Saturday, August 14, the actress greeted the show’s fans, “Good morning, day one!” The behind-the-scenes exclusive video also features Julia riding a motorcycle along the streets of Ilocos. 

“Training done! Taping naman (Now, it’s taping)! FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano takes you to Ilocos with Coco Martin and the whole production family and Julia Montes shoots her very first scene,” Dreamscape Entertainment wrote in their caption.

Prior to her taping, Julia underwent different kinds of training, such as rehearsing for fight scenes and target shooting, to prepare for her role in the action series. In a TV Patrol report, stunt coordinator Erwin Tagle revealed that actor-director Coco Martin approached their team to assist in preparing for Julia’s action-packed scenes. 

“Gusto talaga ni direk Coco bumuo ng team for Julia na pagdating sa fight scenes ni Julia, kahit camera shots at angles, iba ang approach… (Coco really wanted to form a team for Julia that will focus on her fight scenes. He wanted to have her camera shots and camera angles to be approached differently),” he said. 

News that Julia would join FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano was first announced in July. She is set to play the leading lady role opposite Coco. Aside from Julia, Tommy Abuel, Rosanna Roces, Michael Flores, Vangie Labalan, Marela Torre, Chai Fonacier, Elora Españo, and Joseph Marco are also joining the show. 

Julia took a break from showbiz in 2018, to spend time with her father in Germany. In February 2020, she returned to the small screen in the series 24/7, but her comeback was short-lived after the show stopped production due to the pandemic and the loss of ABS-CBN’s franchise.

Aside from Ang Probinsyano, Julia and Coco are also working together on a Brillante Mendoza project filmed in Pola, Oriental Mindoro. – Rappler.com
