Pia Wurtzbach couldn’t have asked for a better role to return to acting than as Kweenie in “Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad.”
The beauty queen described her character as a dream come true for her, since it’s something she’s never done before.
She told PEP, “Medyo matagal ko nang gustong gumawa ng something na medyo challenging na may mga combat scene.”
Pia continued that she really had to give her all while stunt training, which is very different from the pageant training she’s used to.
“I had to have... harness training and some MMA (mixed martial arts) training na hindi ko talaga akalain na kaya kong gawin,” she said. “Parang ang layo naman dun sa nakasanayan ko nang gawin, ‘di ba? Na nagbu-beauty pageant noon tapos ngayon nananapak ako ng tao.”
As for her projects after “The Revenger Squad,” Pia shared that she wants to stick to movies first.
“Walang teleserye anytime soon... [May next movie ako], hopefully next year we’ll start working on it,” she said.
“Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad” also stars Vice Ganda and Daniel Padilla. It opens in cinemas on Christmas day.
