The Kapamilya Network's newest Primetime teleserye ''Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala,'' starring the ''Queen of Pinoy Soap Opera'' Judy Ann Santos, will have its much-awaited premiere tonight. She's been doing teleseryes for a long time now, ever since she was a young upstart but Juday said she still feels nervous and excited every time she starts a project.

''Yes, I'm feeling nervous and excited at the same time. I'm really flattered to be given this kind of project, and I'm very thankful to ABS-CBN because they have been supporting me and giving me wonderful projects for the longest time,'' Juday said.

She added that she did not think twice when offered the project as her comeback teleserye because of its beautiful and extraordinary story. ''The story of 'Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala' is about women empowerment. It fights for the rights of women and shows the strength of every human to fight for the principles that they believe in,'' the actress said.

Juday has done numerous teleseryes and she said the key to her success is her love for the craft. ''For me, there is no real secret on how to maintain your status in showbiz. If you love what you're doing and if you love and respect the people you're working with, the support of the people for you will never go away.''

On the teleserye, which is part of ABN-CBN's celebration of its 60th anniversary in Philippine Television, Judy Ann plays the role of Anessa Panaligan, a strong woman and a loving daughter who would do everything for the sake of her family. Amid all the trials that she is facing, Anessa will meet and fall in love with Eros Diomedes (Sam Milby), a rich young man who will turn her life into a nightmare.
