Julia Clarete

digital portrait of a favorite Filipina singer/actress of mine.
Being and actor/actress in Philippine showbiz is a complicated thing. They don't usually promote new TV shows or movies by guesting on talk shows, partly because we don't really have those the way US audiences (or maybe most other audiences in the world) have The Tonight Show in the evenings and Good Morning, America in the daytime. They guest on variety shows or game shows to either sing or dance.
Julia is in a different league of cool -she actually does sing- and is a rocker chick at that. She started out mainly as a drama actress but as one of the many hosts of a noontime variety show she has shown more character with her bubbly, vibrant, and funny persona as well.
