MANILA -- Teen star Liza Soberano has already started work on her first-ever movie project with leading man Enrique Gil.
Soberano and Gil are headlining Star Cinema's upcoming film "The Bet," which is based on the hit book of the same title written by Kimberly Joy Villanueva.
"The Bet" tells the story Drake who made a bet with his best friend that he can make Sophia fall for him in just 30 days.
In a recent interview, Soberano said she and Gil have started to bond with the rest of the film's cast.
"Nag-story con kami, nag-script reading at after that nag-bonding kami, nag-karaoke kami. Sobrang saya at nakilala namin ang isa't isa sa workshop. Nung una nahihiya ako, feeling ko hindi ko sila masyadong ka-close nung una, nung medyo tinutukso nila ako and everything medyo nag-warm na," she said.
"It's really fun to be with him especially on set kasi kahit pagod na siya ay nagapapatawa pa din siya so hindi ka din mapapagod sa kanya," Soberano shared.
Soberano said she's just happy to shoot her launching movie.
"I'm really, really happy and nervous at the same time, kasi nga I didn't start out as bida sa teleserye so it's going to be harder for me to adjust to this. Kasi, when it's a movie, it's a really big thing and people pay to watch. You really have to be good kasi ayaw mo naman na ma-upset sila kapag napanood nila," she said.
As part of her preparation, Soberano admitted that she's also working on her Tagalog.
"Matagal na akong nag-aaral, mahirap lang mawala ang American accent. Pero nag-aaral po talaga ako at nagbabasa ako ng Tagalog books," she said.
