It turns out that Benjamin Alves is also part of the cast of GMA Network’s new epic drama ‘Sahaya,’ which was expected to be promoted at ‘Sunday Pinasaya’ and ‘Studio 7,’ in which former lover Julie Anne San Jose is a mainstay.
Many are inquiring if the exes will meet face-to-face at the said gigs, or if they will greet each other and hold conversations for the duration of the promotion.
It was in November 2018 that reports were published about the couple parting ways, almost the same time when news of the death of the actor’s father broke out.
Before the year ended, the two unfollowed each other on Instagram. And Julie Anne even admitted in an interview with PEP.ph that she and Benjamin could not stay as friends after the break-up.
“I’m really, really focused pagdating sa mga bagay-bagay when it comes to my work, my craft, bettering myself my music. ‘Yun ‘yung important for me this year,” said Julie Anne.
‘Sahaya’ brights to light the inspiring story of a young Badjao woman who triumphed despite all life’s challenges. Throughout her journey, Sahaya remains true to her culture and beliefs as a Badjao, even defying the power of love. The series stars Bianca Umali and Miguel Tanfelix with Migo Adecer completing the love triangle.
Meanwhile, the drama starring Benjamin will start airing this March, under the direction of Zig Dulay.

As a mother to the lovely Amarah, Cristine Reyes is now more conscious to the roles she accepts.
In an interview during the BlogCon of OctoArts’ latest horror offering, Spirit of the Glass 2: The Haunted, Cristine bravely answered the issues being thrown at her, whether she will continue portraying sexy roles or not. She sets her own limitations, she said.
Even though, her husband, Ali Khatibi has always been very supportive of her, she has to keep in mind that everything she does will reflect to their daughter.
“Wala naman siyang binabawal,” Cristine answered if Ali is forcing her not to accept daring roles. “Ang sa kanya lang, parang kung gagawa man ako ng isang project, make sure na it’s something that Amarah (their daughter) will be proud of dahil iba na ngayon,” she added.
Is she missing her roles back then?
“Kung noon, kahit ano, kaya kong gawin dahil wala naman akong iniisip na anak at asawa. Pero ngayon, dahil kasal kami, may asawa na ako, may anak ako, siyempre, lahat ng desisyon na gagawin ko ngayon, kailangan ‘yung makakabuti rin para sa kanila,” Cristine answered.
The 28-year-old Kapamilya actress is truly grateful for the blessings being showered on her. With back to back films in a month, she cannot help but be thankful.
Prior to SOTG2, Cristine takes lead on Star Cinema’s Seven Sundays.
Spirit of the Glass 2: The Haunted will hit the theaters nationwide on November 1. Let’s see how Cristine will take us to the fright train with Daniel Matsunaga, Benjamin Alves, Janine Gutierrez, Ahron Villaflor, Ashley Ortega, Enrico Cuenca and introducing Maxine Medina, directed by Joey Reyes.
