Just a few days after sharing her thoughts on Liza Soberano’s Tagalog voice acting debut in the new Pinoy animated series Trese, Filipina voice talent Inka Magnaye took a shot at her own dub in the opening scene of the latest animated Netflix series. Inka went viral last year after revealing that she is the current voice talent behind the in-flight safety announcement of Philippine Airlines (PAL), the same job her mom Lindy had in the ‘90s for the flagship carrier of the country.

Having worked as a voice talent for two decades, Inka said that Liza Soberano’s voice was a better fit for the role. She wrote, “Here’s my modest try at doing Trese! I feel like my voice sounds a little too ‘mature’ for the role, but this was fun to do!”
Last June 13, Inka shared her thoughts after watching Trese amidst all the different reactions to Liza’s Tagalog dubbing for the series. She wrote, “First note: Liza Soberano’s voice is perfect for the character. It’s got a great balance of youthfulness and grim. A bit more exaggeration could have added more dimension, even an exaggeration of a deadpan delivery (think Daria). But other than that, I’m liking it so far!”
The voice talent and radio deejay also defended Liza from those who were not impressed with Liza’s work on the series.
“Ok Liza Soberano ISN’T monotonous. She has dynamics in her delivery. However, she DOES tend to deliver her lines in almost the exact same cadence, and people confuse that with monotony. I believe this could have been a direction thing. Seeing as she is an actor and not really a voice actor, whoever was directing her during the recording sessions could have guided her a little more to explore different deliveries, but that’s just what I think. We don’t know din,” she said.
