Ysabel Ortega is out to show an astig Jamie Robinson in ‘Voltes V: Legacy’

We already know Ysabel Ortega as someone who exudes strength and grace, but she is out to show her badass side in “Voltes V: Legacy.”

The Kapuso star is playing Jamie Robinson, the only female member of the Voltes V team. She is the team’s voice of reason with a cool demeanor. Jamie also pilots the Volt Lander.

In a recent virtual press conference, Ysabel was asked by GMA Network’s Aubrey Carampel just how astig Jamie is.

“Kaya pong talunin si Big Bird, let’s put it that way,” she said with a laugh. “And mas astig kay Ysabel.”

But despite that, Ysabel is out to show some moves and do her own stunts in her first action series.

“It really was a challenge for me, and I took it as a challenge po talaga so nag-train po ako ng ilang buwan. Talagang pinagbutihan ko po talaga,” she said.

Ysabel added that they only have a double when the scenes would be too dangerous.

“Siguro po 95% of the scenes talaga po of Jamie, it really was me kasi pinaghirapan ko rin po siya for more than a year and pinagsikapan ko po talaga para ma-perform ko po ng mabuti yung mga fight scenes ko na meron si Jamie.”

Before its TV premiere, “Voltes V: Legacy: The Cinematic Experience” will exclusively be shown in SM Cinemas from April 19 to 25. This film will include material from the first three weeks of the much-awaited series. — Nika Roque/LA, GMA Integrated News
