Judy Ann Santos is finally back in the acting department. The Young Superstar is currently busy taping for her upcoming teleserye, Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala, with KC Concepcion, John Estrada and Sam Milby. The drama series was previously titled Against All Odds, until Concepcion announced on her Twitter account that it was retitled toHuwag Ka Lang Mawawala.
Production for the said drama series started last year but was stalled when the lead stars got their hands tied with other projects: Santos for Pinoy Masterchef, Concepcion for X Factor Philippinesand Milby forKahit Konting Pagtingin. Now that everyone has found time for the series, taping for Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala is in full swing.
Aside from the schedule and title, the series alsoencountered changes in the cast members. The role Estrada will be portraying was previously signed to Jericho Rosales who had to beg off from the series because of the delays. He decided to give priority to an acting project in Malaysia (read related story) instead of waiting for his co-stars to finish their other commitments.
Santos said that she is both excited and nervous about her latest TV project. It has been three years since she starred in the teleserye, Habang May Buhay, before laying low in showbiz to take care or her new born son, Lucio. Now that she is back to acting on television, Juday hopes that she could still meet the viewers’ expectations when it comes to drama.
Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala is slated to premier later this year. The cast also includes Mylene Dizon, Empress Schuck, Joseph Marco, Bryan Termulo, Tirso Cruz III, Coney Reyes, Louise Abuel, Susan Africa and Blythe Gorostiza.
