As her first acting project, Mica shared how she got the role-of-a-lifetime.
She shared that a friend of hers told her about the go-see for the series, after which she was called back for an audition.
Mica revealed she had resigned herself to not getting the part since it took a few months for her to be called back after several rounds of auditions.
“My reaction was a non-reaction,” she said about finally getting the role. “My reaction was ‘Oh, okay. That’s cool.’ And then they were like, ‘Are you happy about this? You don’t seem excited.’”
“It took me a few weeks to realize na ‘Oh okay, I actually booked something cool,” she continued. “I think ‘pag matagal kang naghihintay ng opportunity tapos biglang bumagsak sa ‘yo ang opportunity na gaya nito, hindi ka biglang nae-excite.”
Mica is reportedly set to play Maria Lopez, a member of a group of CIA agents that pursue criminals all over the world.
“There’s a lot of action and a lot of layers of stories because the characters are also interesting and also very different,” she said about the series, reportedly titled “General Commander,” adding that it’s set to be released this year.
