Anne Curtis couldn’t avoid getting the jitters.

The pandemic had kept her away from a live audience, and going back to work felt strange.

“It’s all part of coming back to this world, right?” said the Filipino-Australian performer at her launch as the face of Amazon Prime Video in the Philippines.

Recently she returned to her co-hosting gig on It’s Showtime! which now airs on the Kapamilya channel, A2Z and TV5.

“I did that [Luv-Anne] and It’s Showtime! to get into the groove again,” Curtis admitted.

Is she ready to go back into acting?

“I’m slowly getting there. Acting is the next thing I want to do again,” she said.

Curtis, 37, won’t mind being cast in a local Amazon Prime Video project. “I would say yes. If the script is something that would interest me, definitely,” she said.
