Recently featuring in showbiz news is the upcoming comedy film that starred Judy Ann Santos and Angelica Panganiban entitled “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes.”

For Panganiban, it’s been a dream come true working with Santos, as she has looked up to the actress since childhood.

Of this, she says that she once wished that “Sana makatrabaho ko ‘yan katulad nila Ate Juday.” (I wish I could work with someone like Judy Ann.)

The two once worked together in a TV soap on ABS-CBN, Ang Sa Puso Ko Iingatan Ka, which aired from 2001 to 2003.

Back then, Panganiban stated that she was too shy to actually hold a conversation with Santos, saying that she merely laughed along with her (Santos) as she listened to Santos’ stories. Now, however, she says that she’s confident enough with herself to strike up conversations with her co-star.

Panganiban says that working with Santos is a huge honor, saying, “So, I’m sure, ang daming artista ngayon na gustong maglaslas, ‘Bakit hindi ako yung andiyan, bakit siya?’” (I’m sure that there are many actors that would want to work with her. They might be asking themselves, “Why her [Panganiban] and not me?”)
