MANILA – It’s not every day that impersonators get to meet the people they imitate, and even get their approval.
Luckily for Chino Liu, he was able to experience both from Kris Aquino during their brief encounter, a video of which was shared on the actress-host’s Facebook page on Monday.
The 24-year-old was in character as he shared bits of his personal life with Aquino – from his parents and educational background to why he is not in a relationship.
“You’re super gorgeous. God, para akong nananalamin. O di ba, I love it,” said Liu, who carries the screen name Krissy Achino.
Visibly impressed, Aquino told her impersonator: “Thanks for doing a good job, kasi alam ko inaaral mo talaga ako. I like you because you have the correct diction. It annoys me ‘pag mali ang diction.”
Liu went viral in 2017 for mimicking possible Filipino celebrity voices for the navigation app Waze.
His impersonations of Aquino stood out, paving the way for a career in content creation.
