Liza Soberano nervous to be working with Gerald Anderson
TEEN star Liza Soberano is “both nervous and excited” to be working with “a more experienced actor” like Gerald Anderson in her latest movie that will also feature Enrique Gil.
“Gerald has been in the industry for a while and I know I will pick up a lot of things from him. It’s always fun to work with new people,” said the lead star of the popular ABS-CBN series “Forevermore” which ended last May.
“Everyday I Love You,” to be directed by Mae Cruz-Alviar, will be shot in Silay, Bacolod. Liza and Gerald will be required to speak Ilonggo.
The 17-year-old actress said she was worried “because Gerald and I didn’t have any workshop together prior to shooting the movie. I’m not used to this. We also don’t have bonding time because he is doing (the primetime drama series) ‘Nathaniel’ and I will leave for Canada for a month.”
Liza plays 21-year-old Audrey in the movie. “She lives in the modern world, but has an old soul. She is very romantic. She believes that if you patiently wait for something, you will be rewarded.”
In the movie, something happens to her boyfriend Tristan (Gerald), which changes their lives. Ethan (Enrique) then comes into the picture and he and Audrey become closer, complicating things even more.
Before leaving for Canada, Liza participated in Johnson and Johnson Philippines’ “Camp Courage” advocacy event held recently at the Sen. Renato Cayetano High School in Barangay Ususan, Taguig City. “Camp Courage” is a movement that aims to help teens overcome the many difficult challenges they go through.
“It is during the teenage years when girls start to feel different emotions that translate into their actions and decisions in life. We developed Camp Courage to empower them to celebrate their teenage years and realize their full potential by building their confidence,” said Karen Co, J&J Philippines group brand manager for teen brands.
Liza, as a Camp Courage senior scout, led the event that was attended by “teen experts” and over a hundred students.
“Just like any other teenager, I go through a lot of insecurities. Not many people know this but every time I face a large crowd, I get stage fright,” Liza admitted. “However, I’ve learned from the women I look up to that the teenage years are a very exciting phase. That is why I am one with Camp Courage in empowering girls like me to be more confident.”
Camp Courage will try to reach out to 400,000 teens in 500 schools nationwide, said Co. It will conduct workshops and activities that will enable girls to understand their bodies and help them find opportunities where they can enhance their talents and skills even more.
It is also set to launch the website www.ourcampcourage.ph—a safe place where girls can share their feelings and receive the much-needed support from friends.
