After Mara, it is now Clara’s turn to become an action star.

Following the “La Luna Sangre” success of Kathryn Bernardo, who starred as Mara in the remake of “Mara, Clara,” it is now the turn of Kathryn’s “Mara, Clara” co-star, Julia Montes, to show prowess in combat scenes for upcoming ABS-CBN soap opera “Asintado.”

In an interview last Monday for her upcoming soap opera “Asintado,” Julia said that though she and Kathryn are no longer co-stars, Kathryn always tells Julia her experiences in doing fight scenes for “La Luna Sangre.”

“Nae-excite ako every time na nagkwekwento nga siya,” Julia enthused.

Julia admitted that she also now consults Kathryn on how to prepare doing battle shots for “Asintado.”

“Lalo na ‘yun si Kath, masyado ‘yung health-conscious… ilang beses na ‘yun nag-gygym, etc. Sa kanya ako mas nagtatanong ngayon.”

Julia affirmed that it is now the age of femme fatales in Filipino soap operas, with roles such as Kathryn’s Malia in “La Luna Sangre” and Maja Salvador in “Wildflower.”

“Siguro, ‘yan na nga po ‘yung trend ngayon na iba na ang woman empowerment, parang pinapakita natin na wala nang babae’t lalaki sa mundo – lahat tayo pantay-pantay at lahat tayo palaban!”

The actress saidshe and Kathryn are excited to be part of a new generation of actors that value gender equality.

“Ang sarap lang sa pakiramdam na ang management, ang ABS-CBN, open na ang babae iba lumaban na rin. Sakto na kami ni Kathryn nandun na kami sa line na ganun. It’s exciting for us!”
