From 2015’s “Just the Way You Are” to 2020’s Make It With You, Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil have starred in multiple movies and teleseryes together. Their love team has grown through the years. Now, they are reacting to their projects through the years!
Just the Way You Are
This 2015 movie was LizQuen’s first movie. Although, they could only cringe at their younger selves. Enrique was too distracted by the insane height of his hair which he compared to the animated characters Trolls. “Naalala ko ang sakit ng ulo ko dahil ang bigat ng buhok ko noon,” he joked. Their tandem was also shooting the teleserye Forever at the time. So, it was important that he looked different.
On the other hand, Liza recalled how awkward she felt because she was still getting to know Enrique. Aside from this, she was only 16 years old. “It was kind of a little too sensual for me,” she described the scene. She felt uncomfortable but the director insisted.
Everyday I Love You
“Mukha akong duling doon sa dulo,” she commented. The final scene was filmed in one of the studios at the ABS-CBN compound. Audrey had to audition for a project that Ethan was producing. “He’s mad at me, so I have to run after him and make him love me again. But he already loves me,” she explained.
My Ex and Whys
When talking about LizQuen movies, “My Ex and Whys” has their most iconic scene together. Although, Enrique only thought of one thing. “Oh my god ang taba ko,” he reacted. “Whenever I see that scene na-se-stress ako,” she revealed.
It took her two days to shoot the emotional scene. Eight hours on the first day and then five hours on the second day. Director Cathy Garcia-Molina was critical of her performance. “Hindi ko nararamdaman na naloko ka” was her comment. “Pinush talaga ko ni Direk Cathy,” Liza added.
This 2019 project was LizQuen’s last movie. Both described it as adventurous but challenging. Romantic comedy is their comfort zone, but this was full on drama. They made a lot of good memories behind the cameras, but they had one too many crying scenes in front of the camera.
In the end, watching the movie was actually fulfilling, especially because of director Antoinette Jadaone. Their tandem got to explore acting and do what they wanted for the role. “She’s the type of director that likes to collaborate with her artists,” Liza shared.
Make It With You
For this primetimes series, LizQuen got to work in Croatia. Liza will never forget the first ever scene she had to shoot because it involved flirting with a Croatian actor. “Hindi ako marunong lumandi,” she admitted. On top of this, she hated the outfit she wore for Billy and Gabo’s first encounter. Still, it was a memorable experience because of the scenery and food.
