THE ANGELIC JULIE VEGA: CHILD STAR OF THE 70s

Orig Showbiz Magazine / April 21, 1983


Julie Vega was discovered at a Christmas party in Quezon Institute by renowned film director and National Artist Lamberto Avellana and veteran actress Boots Anson-Roa, thus starting her showbiz career at the age of six as a telivision commercial model of a hotdog brand. She first used the screen name Darling Postigo and appeared in her first film entitled Ang Pag-ibig Ko’y Huwag Mong Sukatin as the young daughter of Anson-Roa and Dante Rivero. It was not until she appeared in her first major lead role in the 1978 film Mga Mata ni Angelita that she started using the screen name Julie Vega through the recommendation of Dr. Larry Santiago . She had been chosen from over 200 applicants to play the role of Angelita despite placing only third among all applicants. It would prove to be the role that would launch her to full movie stardom.
Vega won two FAMAS acting awards --- Best Child Actress for Mga Mata ni Angelita and Durugin si Totoy Bato and was nominated for Best Child Actress for Mga Basang Sisiw and Best Supporting Actress for Isang Bala Ka Lang!. see link

other than julie, there were other popular and competent child performers during her time. janice de belen as "flordeluna" was of course julie's tv (and later, movies) archrival. herbert bautista came into his own as reneboy in "flordeluna" and bistek in "2+2" not to mention the impish boy in "kaluskos musmos". before she became known as nasty wilma in "flordeluna", marites ardieta had been in movies like maligno (with susan roces), little christmas tree (with fpj-nora) and kamay ni hilda. and just take any of those talented kids from "kaluskos musmos" like lovely rivero, maila gumila, etc. etc. who later branched out into the movies.
