Janella ripe for stardom

(The Philippine Star) - November 23, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - The mother-and-daughter tandem of Lily and Roselle Monteverde strongly believe that today’s Darling Teen Princess and latest OPM Pop Sweetheart Janella Salvador is ripe for stardom.

And so, they tapped her to headline Regal Entertainment, Inc.’s 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Haunted Mansion with no less than award-winning director, locally and internationally, Jun Lana handling her launching movie.

Among the current generation of young stars, many consider Janella to be a cut above the rest as she is bursting with talent in acting, singing, dancing and hosting.

Janella started as a darling of TV commercials at a tender age. Before entering showbiz, she was part of the musical play Paul! Paul, staged at the Meralco Theater in 2009 for a local food chain. By 2010, she was picked to be part of the ABS-CBN Star Magic Glee Club.

Because of her impressive talent, she landed the role of Nikki in the morning drama Be Careful With My Heart from 2012 to 2014.

Until she got her biggest break on TV as the lead actress in the inspirational series Oh My G!.

Aside from these, she has also appeared in other Kapamilya shows like Maalaala Mo Kaya and Wansapanataym.

Various award-giving bodies also took notice of the young gem — 17th Gawad Pasado Awards, which named Janella Pinakapasadong Dangal ng Kabataan this year; Most Promising Loveteam with Jerome Ponce and Most Promising Female Star (2014 Guillermo Awards); Candy Reader’s Choice Female Rising Star; German Moreno Youth Achievement Award; 27th PMPC Best Female Personality and Pop Breakthrough Star of ASAP in 2013.

Of late, Janella has earned herself a new tag, that of OPM Pop Sweetheart, due to her best-selling self-titled album from Star Music.

As singer, her rendition of Mahal Kita Pero placed third in the 2014 Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs and was adjudged Best Music Video on MYX.

Incidentally, Janella is a scholar of the Ryan Cayabyab Musikwela.

At 17, Janella has accomplished and achieved a lot of her dreams such that the Monteverdes are confident they have a winner in her launching pic, Haunted Mansion.

“She’s very fresh. Modern at siguradong papatok sa kabataan ngayon. At this age of social media, isa si Janella sa mga binigyan naming ng break sa Regal dahil malakas ang charm niya’t she’s very talented. Malawak na ang fan base niya and I believe that she will be a big name in the industry,” said Mother Lily.

Two of the country’s fast-rising young male idols — Marlo Mortel and Jerome Ponce — join Janella in the movie.

Haunted Mansion hits local screens nationwide on Christmas Day.
