If there’s something worth celebrating next month for the two, it’s definitely their love for their craft
Alone/Together. This was the last film of Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil in 2019, but it could also be the perfect description of their career trajectories five years later. Alone and kicking it with their individual activities, but still together in the mission of honing their craft.
This February, their fans are in for a back-to-back treat from the two with their own projects showing in the same month and sharing the comedic genre. Liza, Enrique, and LizQuens fans, are you ready?
Liza in Lisa Frankenstein
Lisa Frankenstein, Liza’s Hollywood debut, is set to hit Philippine theaters on February 7. The 26-year-old stars as Taffy, the stepsister of Lisa, played by Kathryn Newton. In a previous interview with MEGA Entertainment, the actress revealed that her character is someone everyone would be able to relate to. “Taffy is a genuine person who wants the best for everybody. She just doesn’t know how to put that into words, she said.”
The movie’s director, Zelda Williams, personally asked Liza to audition for her role. “I really wanted someone who could play [the role] so [earnestly] and like, sweet and loving. Truthfully, I asked her myself, I was like, ‘Please, will you tape for this? I think you’re right for it.’ Everyone fell in love with her. She’s most people’s favorite part of this movie,” Williams spoke. Cole Sprouse also joins Kathryn and Liza in Williams’ directorial debut.
Enrique is not big bird
Ten months since he signed another exclusive contract with ABS-CBN, Enrique Gil is bolder and braver in this new season of his career. On February 14, the actor will be back on the big screen with I Am Not Big Bird. Gil’s character travels to Thailand for a boys trip after a failed wedding proposal. Things go differently for their crew when they realize that Enrique carries a resemblance to a famous porn star in the country called Big Bird. Directed by Victor Villanueva, the movie also stars Pepe Herrera, Nikko Natividad, and Red Ollero.
“I think it’s really meant to be watched as a group, lahat ng barkada,” the matinee idol said, commenting on the film. “Nag-enjoy kami na parang hindi kami nagtrabaho.”
