In a recent virtual mediacon, British-Filipino star Yassi Pressman said that she is happy for Julia Montes joining the top-rating Kapamilya teleserye “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” which is currently celebrating its 6th anniversary.

“Definitely a great move!” Yassi said.

Yassi previously played the role of Alyanna, Cardo’s wife, in the long-running primetime series.

“I am so excited. When I first saw the teasers, I said that this is the perfect time because viewers already miss Julia Montes and it’s about time for her to make this comeback in acting. I’m sure everyone’s excited for her character,” Yassi added.

The actress admitted that playing a character for a long time makes the audience identify the actor as his/her character. Yassi experienced the same, but she took this positively.

“I just wish them the best because I know whatever the ‘Ang Probinsyano’ family offers its huge audience, it will always going to be hard, action filled and always exciting,” she said

Yassi bid farewell to “Ang Probinsyano” innJanuary 2021 because of schedule conflicts.At present, she is active in hosting the game show “Rolling in It” on TV5.

“Happy Birthday again, Neybor! 58 years old na?! We met and started dating when you were 30! OMG. Time por a change na yata. Hahaha joke only! Looking forward to growing old (but not looking old cos I’m a vampire! Kahit bumili na ‘ko sa science ng pampahaba ng pagka-vampire ko. Hahaha!) with you, sungit! I love you even if we’re best frenemies! Hahaha! With all my wawa heart,” she said.

KC also shared on Instagram her sweet birthday message for her stepfather.

“Happy birthday dad! Thank you for disciplining me and guiding me so strongly in my teenage years and beyond. It’s because of you that I have a thirst for knowledge, am able to focus on and accomplish goals at work, achieve things with the courage that I can, with hard work, patience, and most especially the constant act of educating myself. You taught me that ‘you can learn ANYTHING’ and built that foundation of learning and applying to life,” she said.
