Julia Montes' breakthrough role came in 2010 when she co-starred in the remake of Emil Cruz, Jr.'s classic soap opera 'Mara Clara,' a story about a teenage sister's rivalry with her off-screen best friend, Kathryn Bernardo. Because Bernardo plays the eponymous character Mara Clara, Montes changed her screen name to Julia Montes from Mara Montes to avoid problems. According to Kantar Media, the series' finale episode received 43.4% national ratings, making it the highest-rated teleserye episode on ABS-CBN that year.
