Actresses portray action roles

Gone were the days when female teleserye characters are portrayed as helpless damsels. In this modern age, they have evolved into fierce heroines taking on action scenes when needed. Here are some Kapamilya actresses who can throw a punch!

 

Jane De Leon

This generation’s superhero is ready to take flight. As the titular character in Mars Ravelo’s Darna, Jane De Leon underwent months of intense physical training to get into shape aesthetically and for the intense battle scenes against the forces of evil. Before this, Jane made a guest appearance on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. As a member of the Black Ops, fans got to see her using a gun.

 

Angel Locsin

Dubbed as a real-life superhero, Angel Locsin has a track record of four Kapamilya action series to prove her supremacy in the said genre. She did it first in Lobo, her earliest series as a Kapamilya until its second and third instalments Imortal and La Luna Sangre, respectively. In her most recent teleserye, The General’s Daughter, Angel underwent physical and mental training with the Armed Forces of the Philippines for her role as 2nd Lt. Rhian Bonifacio. There was no stopping her from doing death-defying scenes including rappelling down a 15-floor building and hanging under a moving truck, without a stunt double.

 

Julia Montes

From an adorable ‘bulilit’ to a woman with badass strength and jaw-dropping beauty, Julia Montes first displayed her natural flair for action via afternoon series Asintado wherein she had to take on firing and muay thai training for her role as Ana, the personal nurse with a vengeance. After a year-long hiatus, her comeback project, 24/7 also showcased her fighting skills as she portrayed a security agent on a dangerous course towards finding a cure for her child falling ill due to a viral outbreak in the country.

 

Kathryn Bernardo

From naturally sweet and romantic, the Queen of Hearts unleashed her tough side as Malia Rodriguez, the Chosen One in the fantasy series La Luna Sangre. Dressed like a Hollywood action heroine in her physical scenes, Kathryn fought against blood-sucking creatures using instinct, speed, power, and fighting skills polished by her intense Filipino martial arts training. 

 

Liza Soberano

Considered a major part of her evolution as an actress, Liza Soberano played warrior fighting for the ‘Sansinukob’ in the action-fantasy Bagani. She was baptized as Ganda, a name she effortlessly gave justice to. But more than just being the mystical muse of their epic world, Liza’s character was fearless, powerful, and equipped with savage fighting skills using her bow that can transform into a sword. 

 

Sue Ramirez

Exuding a strong personality and feisty feminine appeal, Sue Ramirez was the perfect choice for the lady sniper role in A Soldier’s Heart. Even if she was the only rose among the thorns, Sue carried the torch of female soldiers and proved that we need women in the defense forces. She showcased how women warriors slay in combats and crucial decision-making. Of course, she also had to undergo intense military training for her role.

 

Denise Laurel 

Action has never looked so sexy until Denise Laurel showed her smooth yet biting moves coupled with a killer stare as the black werewolf leader Soraya Laurent in La Luna Sangre. She also wowed us with ‘major’ fighting (and cooking) skills as Major Alessandra Romero in the long-running primetime series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. 

 

Angel Aquino

Angel Aquino is known for looking gorgeous despite her age. But it’s not just her looks that’s youthful. She is also physically fit enough to film action scene as Diana in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. From being one of the few female members of Vendetta to one of the few female members of Task Force Agila, she never backed down from a fight.

Don’t be fooled by their sweet demeanor! These Kapamilya actresses have ‘astig’ fighting skills and stunts to show off!
