EXCLUSIVE: Mich Liggayu says she is ready to go sexy
040816-MichLiggayu_PUSH.jpgAs part of the cast of the new horror comedy Echorsis, Mich Liggayu said she was happy to be offered the role of Alex Medina’s materialistic and demanding girlfriend in the film. "Sobrang excited ako sa screening. Nung in-offer sa akin yung role super excited ako kasi parang nag-step up ako from the usual short films. Ngayon makikita ko na yung sarili ko sa big screen. So I’m super-excited and happy. Actually nung binabasa ko pa lang yung script natatawa na ako tapos nung ginagawa ko na siya nakakatawa talaga. Kasi mabilis akong matawa na tao so parang kailangan ko i-compose yung sarili ko bago ako matawa kasi siyempre i-a-arte ko na siya dapat,” she told Push.com.ph.

The former member of the YouTube sensation Jamich said she had no problem doing scenes with co-star Alex Medina. "Yung role ko dito is girlfriend ni Alex Medina. Sobrang okay si Alex. Hindi niya pina-feel na parang maging awkward ako. Naging welcome ako sa set,” she recalled. Aside from some guest appearances on TV last year, Mich said she is getting busy with online projects again. "Ngayon nag-start ako ng bago sa YouTube. May dalawa na akong short films na nagawa. Yung first is horror siya and then yung isa inspirational short film na puwede niyong mapanuod sa YouTube ko. Ibang (team) na ngayon (from Jamich),” she added.

After the whole issue between her rift with Jam Sebastian’s family after his death, Mich said she is ready to smooth things over with him for good. "Ngayon hindi na ako nakakarinig sa side nila. Pero okay naman ako if ever makausap ko sila in the futrue or kung magkita man. Wala namang grudges. Sobrang okay lahat,” she admitted.
040816-MichLiggayu_PUSH.jpgFor her avid followers, Mich hopes they can continue to support her acting projects like Echorsis. "Yung mga supporters ko naman naintindihan naman nila yung mga ginagawa ko sa buhay. Actually excited sila sobra na mapanuod yung Echorsis kasi parang sinasabi nila na nami-miss na nila ako makita. Kaya sobrang excited din sila. Looking forward sila na makapanuod nung movie,” she said.

Admittedly still single and not dating anyone, Mich said she wants to focus more on work this year. "Actually dream ko talaga ever since is makapasok sa showbiz industry so sana kapag may opportunities sana ma-grab ko siya. And sana ma-explore ko yung showbiz industry din. Gusto ko din matutunan pa is yung pag-di-direct. Gusto ko din matutunan yung mga bagay behind the camera kasi passion ko talaga yung paggawa din ng film,” she shared.

The Echorsis actress also admitted she is ready to take on more mature roles that might have her showing more skin. "Hindi ko pa alam pero actually napag-usapan din namin ng family ko and ng iba kong friends na i-try namin. Kumbaga before kasi pa-tweetums tweetums, ngayon parang gusto naman nila parang try ko daw mag-step up naman somehow. Pero yung may pagka-wholesome pa rin naman. Yung kumbaga parang coming of age, ganun,” she revealed.

As a big fan of Angel Locsin, Mich said she wants to challenge herself by taking on different kinds of roles. "Kahit ano, gusto ko talaga basta sa pag-arte parang lahat gusto ko ma-try. Kasi yun talaga yung passion ko. Like sa Echorsis gusto ko yung horror comedy na-try ko siya. Next time gusto ko ma-try action naman, yung mga ganun,” she said.

Watch Mich Liggayu in Echorsis starting April 13 in cinemas nationwide. Also starring Alex Medina, Kean Cipriano, John Lapus, Nico Antonio, Bekimon, Chokoleit, and Kiray.
