“We made sure that the Regal trademark of excellence is carried through in our films that’s why I am proud to have the best actors and actresses, the best creative and production people; and even the best technical and special effects staff in our anniversary movie. We owe nothing but the best for our audiences who have supported our movies throughout our 48 years of providing topnotch entertainment to all the Filipinos worldwide,” declares Mother Lily Monteverde, the matriarch of Regal Films.
Judy Ann’s first project with Regal was the 1996 flick Sana Naman. This was followed by a string of movies with Regal and Judy Ann becoming a formidable combination.
“Malaki ang utang na loob ko sa Regal na siyang sumugal at nagtiwala sa aking very first bida role sa pelikula,” recounts Judy Ann, “although kasama na ako sa mga naunang pelikula nila as the young Dyesebel but it was really Mother Lily who trusted me with my very first starring role, and after that, nagsunud-sunod na ang blessings.”
Aside from the box-office teen flicks like Kulayan Natin ang Bukas and Nasaan Ka nang Kailangan Kita, Juday has graduated to mature roles with much ease, even winning her nominations and awards in the significant Regal movies like Sabel, Mano Po 2, Aishite Imasu, Nasaan ang Puso, and many others.
“Malaking bahagi ng buhay ko bilang actress ang Regal at masaya ako at nagbabalik ako through another acting challenge sa Mag-ingat ka sa…Kulam. Dapat nilang mapanood ito dahil pinaghirapan at pinaganda talaga itong pelikulang ito na siyang pagbabalik ko sa Regal after almost three years,” said Judy Ann.
Aside from Judy Ann Santos, Mag-ingat ka sa…Kulam stars Dennis Trillo, TJ Trinidad, Mart Escudero, Kris Bernal, and Sharlene San Pedro. Written and directed by Jun Lana, the film will usher in the Halloween month and will open on October 1 in theaters nationwide.
