LIFE has changed quite a bit for the newly-mar­ried Che Puan Ju­liana Evans.

Last April, the 27-year-old ac­tress mar­ried Tengku Shar­if­fud­din Shah Tengku Su­laiman, 29, who is a mem­ber of both the Se­lan­gor and Jo­hor royal house­holds.

Ju­liana says the dif­fer­ence be­tween sin­gle and mar­ried life is that now she has to con­sider more than just her own needs.

“It’s not just about me any­more. Be­fore, it was about me want­ing to do this and that for my­self. Now, it’s more about us, my hus­band and I, and our new big­ger fam­ily,” she shares.

Ju­liana was at a press event in Kuala Lumpur pro­mot­ing the Ba­hasa Malaysia-dubbed ver­sion of The Se­cret Life Of Pets.

Wak­ing up next to her hus­band is an­other thing she is get­ting used to. “Be­fore this, I slept with my mum and sib­ling; now I wake up with my hus­band by my side.”

The ac­tress, who is of Malay and English parent­age, now lives with her in-laws. Although there is pro­to­col to fol­low, Ju­liana re­veals that life in the royal house­hold is pretty laid­back.

“His fam­ily is very wel­com­ing. They’re very ca­sual peo­ple; not too strict, not much pro­to­col,” she notes.

Look­ing ahead, Ju­liana says she still plans to stay ac­tive in the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try.

“My in-laws are very en­cour­ag­ing (of my act­ing ca­reer). And no I’m start­ing to ven­ture into (t fash­ion and ac­ces­sories) busi they’ve also been very en­cou about that. They’re not askin stop work­ing.”

She adds that she is se­lecti about the projects she takes o some­thing she has been pract even be­fore she got mar­ried.

In the Ba­hasa Malaysia-du ver­sion of The Se­cret Life Of P Ju­liana voices Katie, owner o pro­tag­o­nist, a ter­rier named M x an­i­mated film chron­i­cles the t and turns in Max’s life when takesinanew­pet.

“I’ve done voice-overs for and com­mer­cials be­fore; this first an­i­mated movie. It was fun. The only chal­lenge is ma sure my voice is in sync with char­ac­ter.”

Next up, view­ers will get to Ju­liana on the big screen in t Bella Dan Jamie, which is slat an Oc­to­ber re­lease.

The film cen­tres on the rel ship be­tween two best friend played by Ju­liana and Liyana Jas­may.

“Even though we are actin real life, Liyana and I are bes friends. So that friend­ship co nat­u­rally on screen.

“The first time I acted, I wo with Liyana. That’s why we a close that way and we love to with each other.” The Se­cret Life Of Pets, dubbed i Ba­hasa Malaysia, pre­mieres on at 8pm on HBO (As­tro Ch 411).
