After achieving such high ratings of and going viral for “First Yaya,” Sanya Lopez is set to wow everyone in “Agimat ng Agila.”
She will play Maya, whom she characterizes as "tough and independent."
In an online interview with the press Tuesday, Sanya said that shifting from Yaya Melody to Maya was a challenge for her.
“That’s [First Yaya is a] rom-com, then this is action and fantasy so I still ask for help," she told GMA News Online in Filipino, sharing she consults with an acting on Zoom.
It's a big shift, too as “Yaya Melody is happy-go-lucky,” she added.
This is Sanya’s first project with Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. and according to the Kapuso actress, he’d been a great help in making her get into character.
“Even in my fight scenes, he’s the one guiding me to deliver the right punches and how to properly avoid them,” she said.
The Kapuso actress added that she also watched action movies and took notes to fully see how to portray the character.
While Sanya has been catching everyone’s attention with “First Yaya,” the actress said there's more to look forward to in "Agimat ng Agila."
GMA’s “Agimat ng Agila” will premiere on May 1. Directed by Rico Gutierrez, it also stars Roi Vinzon, Benjie Paras, Michelle Dee and Elizabeth Oropesa, among others. — LA, GMA News
