AFTER a controversy-plagued two-year hiatus from showbiz, Claudine Barretto is finally coming back.
The 33-year-old actress invited ABS-CBN News to the birthday party of her daughter, Sabina, held Saturday afternoon at Blue Water Day Spa in Quezon City, where she made the announcement.
“Nagpe-prepare na ako. Puspusan na ang pagpe-prepare. Actually mga one week palang ako nakakapag-prepare. I’m very excited. I’m very, very excited,” she told ABS-CBN News and other members of the press.
Barretto confirmed an earlier report of ABS-CBN News that she is set to star in two films — one under Viva Films, where she is under contract, and the other, a project involving Star Cinema.
Star Cinema is the film production outfit of ABS-CBN, where Barretto was an exclusive talent for 17 years, before she signed with GMA7 in 2009.
“Hindi ko alam kung ano ang mauuna [sa dalawang pelikula], magmi-meeting palang kami. Magmi-meet palang kami hopefully this week, and doon ko malalaman,” she said.
Barretto’s last regular role in a TV series was “Iglot” in 2011. Her last film, a co-production of Viva Films and GMA Films, “In Your Eyes,” was released in 2010.
“So now finally, sa lahat ng mga Claudinians, malapit na malapit na po. Magpapa-kundisyon lang, dahil medyo maraming pinagdaanan, pero eto na. Eto na rin. Malapit na malapit na,” she said. (ABS-CBNnews.com)
