MANILA - Pia Wurtzbach is thrilled for her big screen comeback one year since she shot her last movie.
This time the beauty queen will star in a comedy film to be produced by Black Sheep.
“I am very excited. I have a lot of fun when I am acting, when I am playing a role, when I have to put Pia aside first and become someone else. That’s always interesting and always fun so I can’t wait to go back to acting this year,” the former Miss Universe told ABS-CBN News’ MJ Felipe on Wednesday.
Since she won Miss Universe in 2015, Wurtzbach has starred in two mainstream movies under Star Cinema.
The first one was “Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad” which was part of the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival; and the second film was “My Perfect You” with Gerald Anderson, which was shown in March last year.
About her new movie, Wurtzbach said she already knows the story, which she finds “really interesting.”
“Offbeat. And when I say comedy, it’s not just your usual comedy either. Dark comedy,” she said.
She also knows who she’s going to work with but she refused to disclose any details just yet. Nonetheless, Wurtzbach is very excited because her leading man in this film is “very good.”
“I feel the pressure. But I am excited. I feel like with this role, I will be able to really explore my acting abilities and show more of what I can do. This time, the script is really interesting,” she said.
“Apparently, when they were looking at the role and the script, they couldn’t think of a lot of girls who could pull it off but somehow, they thought that they could trust me with this role so I am ready to take on that challenge,” she added.
