Who is Julia Montes?

Julia Montes is a Filipino actress of German descent. 

She is one of the most sought-after actresses in the country and has been hailed as the “Royal Princess of Drama” for her acting prowess and versatility.

Julia Montes is 27 years old (as of August 2022) and was born Mara Hautea Schnittka on March 19, 1995, in Pandacan, Manila, Philippines, to a Filipino mother, Gemma Hautea, and German father, Martin Schnittka.

Schnittka left them when Montes was still a baby, and only her deaf mother raised her with the help of her grandmother, Flory Hautea.

In June 2015, Montes completed a culinary course at the Center for Culinary Arts, Manila along with her fellow actress Yam Concepcion. She is a practicing Catholic.

In December 2016, Montes was reunited with her birth father, Martin Schnittka, at Bellini’s, Cubao, Quezon City. She revealed via Instagram about her encounter with her father and expressed gratitude towards her German cousin Michelle Lloyd and CocoJul Bukayo fans for paving the way to meet him.

She has two younger brothers, Patrick and Paolo. Montes has other relatives in Germany.

She describes education as one of the tools to have a good life and she hopes to continue work not just for herself but for her family as well. 

In 2011, she finished high school with good grades at the Blessed Hope Christian School.

At the age of 5, Montes began attending auditions and modeling agencies.

She recalls the struggles she and her grandmother went through: commuting to castings, hurrying from school to shoots, and missing a lot of family time in the process until she was cast in a milk brand, chocolate snack, and fast food chain endorsements.

However, she said she never competed with anyone and was just in the entertainment industry out of need.

Describing her ambitions as a child, Montes has said, “Since I was a child, I only had three dreams: to become a soldier, a chef, and a flight attendant.”
