Liza Soberano is currently making a name for herself in Hollywood as she stars in “Lisa Frankenstein,” and the Filipina actress said her global movie debut made her fall in love with acting even more.

Sitting down on Broad Ideas with Rachel Bilson and Olivia Allen podcast, Soberano detailed her experience working on the Hollywood set alongside the film stars, stressing she enjoyed the whole process given the warm welcome they gave her.


“I was just hoping that my first experience out of the Philippines would be something that I would really enjoy and like to carry with me forever but I can definitely say this film has made me fall in love with acting even more,” she said. 


“I just really genuinely enjoyed everyone on the set and how everyone had like so much to contribute and how everybody was just genuinely in love with the story and wanted to put their best foot forward,” added the actress. 

The “Alone/Together” actress admitted that she expected she would be making a lot of adjustments, knowing she and her co-workers would come from different work cultures.

““They’re all so humble. I was so nervous coming in because I know how successful and established each and every person is and Diablo Cody is an Academy Award winner and everything,” she began. 

“I was expecting them to like have a lot of comments about my acting or you know just the way I am in general because my work ethics may be different from everyone else’s so I was really nervous about that, but everybody was so quick to make me feel comfortable and like I belong there, so it was definitely the best experience ever,” affirmed Soberano. 

The 26-year-old Filipina actress previously opened up about her struggles transitioning from Philippine entertainment to Hollywood, considering the backlash she received from the Filipinos after speaking her “truths” to the local industry.

Soberano opened up that she also struggled with her mental health, which pushed her to do her own podcast during the pandemic, given the “taboo” that surrounds the topic, for her to be able to communicate openly.


“Before the pandemic I started kind of struggling with my own mental health and that was coming from like just years of focusing on work and not really getting to I guess fully be present in my child childhood and like maturing process and everything and I was dealing with a lot of things mentally,” she said. 

The “Dolce Amore” star also shared that she is making efforts to make the conversation on mental health more open as well as the therapy methods accessible to the less fortunate.
