WATCH: Liza Soberano talks about goals in first speaking engagement in the US

Liza Soberano had a "very surreal" experience in her first speaking engagement in the United States.

The "My Ex and Whys" actress made an appearance at the "Identity 2022," a Los Angeles-based festival held last Saturday, May 28, where she talked about her dream to pursue a career in the US.

Asked about her first on-stage experience, Liza admitted, "It feels very surreal. I am actually very nervous right now because this is my first time speaking on a stage in America. It has always been a dream of mine to come over here and being able to do work here and so I am really happy and excited, and feel incredibly honored," she told hosts Sherry Cola and Dumbfoundead.

 

 

Liza also gave advice to fellow Filipinas who aspire to pursue a career like hers someday. “A lot of times, it can be scary to kind of go outside your comfort zone and I myself, I am experiencing that right now,” she admitted.

“It would be so much easier for me to stay back at home and do the same thing that I’ve always been doing," she continued. "But my personal goal is to be able to bridge the gap between the Philippines and America and kind of help the younger generation, the little girls, who also dream of coming out here and making a career for themselves. I want to make it easier for them when they do that in the future and if that means me taking the first leap, so be it,” she added.

In the same guesting, Liza also opened up about her "fun" but "difficult" voiceover experience for the first time in the animated series “Trese,” as well as her journey to becoming an ambassador of Save the Children Philippines.

As to what her fans can expect from her US career: "Well there's a lot of exciting things in store. Nothing really to talk about specifically, [just] me trying to explore different opportunities out here and in the Philippines, stuff I've never done before so please watch out for that," she teased.

As per Ogie Diaz, Liza will be managed by James Reid and his team beginning June 1. The actor is also now in the US for his music career.
