- Rico Yan died at the age of 27 in 2002
- Judy Ann Santos revealed her plan with Rico before he died
- She also revealed whose idea it was
The late actor Rico Yan is mostly associated these days with Claudine Barretto, his ex-girlfriend. However, he was also a love team partner of Judy Ann Santos.
KAMI learned from PEP.ph about what Judy Ann was supposed to do with Rico before his sudden death.
It turned out that they were supposed to bring back their love team with a comeback movie.
“At that time, before Rico passed, dapat comeback movie namin ni Rico yung part 2 ng Isusumbung [Kita sa Tatay Ko]. Yun yung original…
“Pero yun yung narinig ko na parang pagbabalik ng love team namin and then part two nga ng Isusumbong,” she revealed.
(At that time, before Rico passed, my comeback movie with Rico was supposed to be part 2 of “Isusumbong Kita sa Tatay Ko.” That was the original plan… But that is what I heard, that our love team would sort of have a comeback and then follow that up with Isusumbong part 2.)
She also revealed that Rico’s casting was the idea of legendary actor Fernando Poe Jr., who has also passed away.
“Si tatay Ran [Fernando Poe Jr.] actually yung nakaisip na dapat si Rico yung maging partner. And then Rico passed and then FPJ passed.
“Ako na lang yung natira. So, wala nang magsusumbong, wala nang pagsusumbungan. Baka i-remake na lang ‘to!”
(Daddy Ran was actually the one who thought that Rico should be my partner. And then Rico passed away and then FPJ passed away. I was the only one left. Maybe this would just get a remake!)
