All the challenging things Enrique and Liza did for 'Bagani'
Many have commented that the Star Creatives fantaserye “Bagani” feels like a movie from its trailers, with its great production designs and special effects, and Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano have expressed that they feel the same way.
 
“Para sa akin, we treated it like a movie,” Liza said in an interview with PEP. “Lahat ng scenes very detailed. The set-ups and everything, even our costumes, sobrang detalyado lahat.”
 
“Nung lumabas [‘yung trailers], parang pati kami nagulat sa kinalabasan,” Enrique told ABS-CBN News.
 
“It's very original. It's something new and something very, very close to our hearts kasi matagal na po naming pinag-iisipan,” the actor continued. “This is actually five years in the making. Last year lang po kami nag-start [mag-taping] pero matagal na siyang plano. Ngayon lang nae-execute.”
 
The two shared that they had to train and prepare for their roles very hard because of all the action required of them. This is both Enrique and Liza’s first fantaserye and action-packed series as the two normally star in romance-comedies and dramas.
 
“We had fight training, stunt training,” Enrique shared. “We started doing it before the show pero ngayon, we do it before the scene na.”
 
Enrique plays Lakas, a warrior from the desert region, while Liza plays Ganda from the farming region. The actor shared that working on sand in Ilocos Norte instead of solid ground has proven to be a challenge for him when filming.
 
“Sa Ilocos mainit,” he started. “Naka-sandals lang kami so 'yung buhangin mainit. Kapag nahuhulog kami, napapaso kami sa buhangin. And kapag sandals kasi, kapag tumatakbo ka sa buhangin, mas mahirap gumalaw.”
 
“Parang work out na din 'yun,” he continued. “But it’s fun.”
 
Joining Enrique and Liza are Matteo Guidicelli, Sofia Andres, Makisig Morales.
 
“Bagani” premieres this March!
