7Her first screen name was Darling Postigo when she appeared in her first film Ang pag-ibig ko'y huwag mong sukatin (1975) where she plays as daughter of her discoverer, Boots Anson-Roa.
8When she was launched, her screen name was changed to Julie Vega upon the recommendation of Dr. Larry Santiago.

But Santiago wanted her to star in the movie.
