Tomorrow will be the much anticipated episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya” featuring the life of the 2015 Miss Universe title holder Pia Wurtzbach. It is much awaited because apart from opening the life of Pia Wurtzbach way back, Liza Soberano was also chosen to portray the young Pia Wurtzbach.
This day, news broke that Liza Soberano broke down in tears in the set. According to the young actress in her interview with MJ Felipe, she felt frustrated and gave in to her emotions when she was unable to properly copy the walk of Pia Wurtzbach. She explained that it’s her nature to feel frustrated when she’s unable to get the results she wanted. She got pressured and started crying.
Moreover, Liza revealed that she found playing Pia Wurtzbach is difficult because she had not met the beauty before which we thought very essential for Liza to be able to connect much better to the character and to know how to do some scenes right.
“Because I don’t know how she is in real life. I’ve never met her before that,” Liza said.
On a brighter note, Pia Wurtzbach was very much supportive to the young actress as she gave her some advice and encouragement. Pia told her that she can do it while Liza responded that she’s not confident as the Miss Universe 2015. Meanwhile, Pia continued encouraging Liza telling her, “No, Liza. I was never as confident as everybody thought I was before. I just gained the courage when I did Binibining Pilipinas.”
As seen in the upcoming MMK episode, Liza seemed to be wearing the same outfit worn by Pia Wurtzbach on all her pageants but Liza clarified that all the gowns were just replicas except for the Miss Universe sash she wore.
