Here's a first look at Francine Diaz in character as Thea in the upcoming iWantTFC Original series Bola Bola.
On Instagram Stories, Dreamscape Entertainment head Deo Endrinal shared photos from the look test for Bola Bola, showing the actress wearing a fat suit and joined by her leading men KD Estrada, Ashton Salvador, and Akira Morishita.
"Bola Bola is coming soon!" Endrinal captioned the photos.
In Bola Bola, Francine portrays a 220-pound late bloomer who falls in love with her older brother's best friend. The series is based on the book by Anna Geronga, and will be directed by JP Habac (I'm Drunk I Love You).
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Francine said her character in Bola Bola is far from the roles she has portrayed in the past.
She also shared what fans could expect from her latest acting project.
“Maraming puwedeng abangan sa ‘Bola Bola,’ maraming matututunan, good vibes," she said. "Hindi lang siya about love, about sa paghahanap ng kung sino ba ang magmamahal sa kaniya, it’s also about family and friendship."
Aside from Francine and her leading men, the cast of Bola Bola also includes Arlene Muhlach, Allan Paule, J-Mee Katanyag, and Vance Larena, who replaced Albie Casino for the role of Thea’s brother.
A target release date for the series has yet to be announced as of this writing.
