Coleen Garcia plays a ‘maldita’ in her next film


082316-coleen_main.jpgAs part of the upcoming Star Cinema project Extra Service, Coleen Garcia admitted she is happy to be working with Arci Munoz and Jessy Mendiola. "It’s an action-comedy film and it’s something new for all of us actually. Lahat kami hindi pa nakakagawa ng action. At saka yung comedy hindi pa as in full-blown comedy kagaya nito. So it’s something na talagang pag-aaralan namin and nabasa ko na yung script so the story is very cute. Cute na cute yung story pero ayoko muna magbigay masyado ng detalye kasi siyempre kailangan abangan din,” she shared.

For her role which has going under the alias of “Maldita,” Coleen said she already getting ready to do her fight sequences which is also a first for her ever since she entered showbiz in 2011 as part of Star Magic. "Excited talaga ako because it’s something we haven’t done and in this industry parang nakaka-excite din na palaging may bago na puwedeng gawin kasi parang mas nararamdaman mo na nag-go-grow ka rin, mas madami kang natututunan,” she admitted.

The 23-year-old actress admitted being funny while doing action is a big challenge for her. "Siguro naisip namin na to do action possible, to do comedy possible, pero yung parehong action at comedy sa isang film it’s something that isn’t very common. Ang dami naming iisipin sa film na ito. Parang ang daming kailangan alagaan kasi kailangan nakakatawa siya at the same time kailangan sexy siya tapos kailangan on point yung action moves namin,” she added.

Sharing screen time with two of the country’s sexiest actresses is not a coincidence as Coleen admits she is ready to show some skin in Extra Service. "Siyempre may sexy factor pa din pero kampante din naman kami kasi yung director namin we’re sure he’s going to make it come out very tasteful at saka maganda pa rin yung pagkakagawa. Kampante rin naman kami dun,” she said.

For those who wonder how she is able to maintain her enviable figure, Coleen said it’s all about being focused on your fitness goals. "Discipline siguro and balance lang talaga. Kasi I don’t believe that we should deprive ourselves sa mga masasarap na pagkain. Siyempre you only live once di ba? At saka sa work namin kailangan masaya kami at least sa pagkain (laughs). But you also have to eat healthy and keep positive lagi,” she shared.
