Hopefully people will get interested and it can open doors to many more projects or other things in the Philippines, ”Liza shared. Here are a few more tidbits about Liza’s experience working on Trese. Liza understands how passionate, protective graphic novel fans are. “When I first learned that I was going to voice the character Alexandra Trese, I was very nervous and hesitant. I was scared. It’s something new to me. It’s something I’ve never done before. Of course, I don’t want to let anyone down. I know in the comic book world a lot of comic book fans are really persistent, they are really passionate about protecting the characters they love and the stories they love like any fan would, ”Liza said. She said that when she accepted the role, she “did everything in her power to prepare for it.” Avoiding speaking English at home with her friends or during phone calls or Zoom meetings, she spoke in Tagalog instead to get used to it, and some tips, techniques, and warm-ups to do when you’re in start the speech output. I also requested a workshop with my voice trainer and he sort of walked me through the process and helped me breathe life into the character. “Liza believes that” Trese “is relatable to everyone” I think people should “Trese” because it is so rich in Filipino culture and mythology. I think it’s a very good portrayal. Even though it’s based on fiction, it still has a lot of truth in it. There are so many scenes that we can all relate to. I’m just happy that more people can immerse themselves in our culture and learn more about us. Filipino culture is so rich and colorful. I feel like it’s not showing much on the global stage, ”said the young actress. “Trese” is Liza’s “second chance” “I’ve always wanted to portray someone who is a superhero. Unfortunately, I couldn’t prevail with “Darna” beforehand, ”Liza told the press that she wasn’t able to play the Filipino superhero in a television series. “When I was offered that, I thought, maybe? , in a way, it’s a substitute for what I couldn’t do before, ”she said. Liza is looking forward to “Trese” as she has the feeling that many Filipinos can look up to a “brave and evil” Filipino detective. “I’m so excited and honored to speak out to Alexandra Trese because she is such an amazing character, and the story is such an amazing story. It definitely makes me proud.” Liza on her ‘Kapre’ encounter “As me First came to the Philippines when I was 10, my family here in the Philippines somehow introduced me to these mythological creatures like the Tiyanak, Aswang, Kapres and The. “, Liza said.” I had an encounter when I was in the province was because I studied there for a year in Pangasinan. There was a time when I got sick every now and then. I remember one day I woke up with a big scratch on my thigh. My father took me to an albularyo (witch doctor). The albularyo performed all these rituals on me. She closed her eyes and said, “There’s a caper. A caper looks through her window in her room. The caper has a crush on you.” Albularyo said, “eri the star reckoned lightly. “Trese” premieres on June 11th on Netflix.
