Sofia Andres shares how she prepared for her role in the action-fantasy series.
Sofia Andres will star in her very first action-fantasy series titled Bagani slated to air next year along with co-stars Enrique Gil, Liza Soberano, and Makisig Morales. Though she admitted that it was challenging, the actress remarked she enjoyed the whole experience because she was working with her friends.
“It was really challenging because it was like action and I haven’t done an action teleserye ever, even film, so it was fun naman because I was with my friends like Enrique, Liza, and Makisig,” she said.
Sofia had to undergo martial arts training in order to prepare for her role in the series. “We had training for one month, Wushu training, and I had to lose weight because I was really kinda chubby lang naman kasi kailangan toned eh, ‘yun medyo nahirapan ako don because I love eating,” she said.
It is the second time that Sofia will be working with LizQuen. They first worked together on the hit series Forevermore. Asked about her reunion with the popular love team, she replied, “It was really fun kasi hindi sila nagbago and para lang kami naglalaro on set but sometimes ‘pag may fight scenes na that are really, really hard nandon pa rin ‘yung ‘kaya natin ‘to guys, tapusin natin ‘to’.”
The actress also remarked that working with Makisig is such a great experience. “[Sa] Super Inggo I watched him sabi ko, ‘Dati audience lang, ngayon I’m working with you.’ Ang bait niya sobra, he is really down to earth,” she stated.
