Fearless and up for any challenge, Arci Munoz wants to be the best she can be in everything she does. And this boldness makes her quite the Jill of All Trades of showbiz. In this edition of Kapamilya React, the multi-hyphenate brings us back to her most well-rounded small screen portrayals over the years.
The gorgeous Kapamilya currently plays Sam in the primetime series Walang Hanggang Paalam alongside Paulo Avelino, Angelica Panganiban, and JC Santos. She takes on the role of a criminal investigative agent, thus the action-packed scenes.
This is quite an echo of her real-life penchant for physical activities. She’s been into boxing, kung fu, and muay thai since she was a kid that’s why she enjoys doing action scenes a lot. Although she’s no expert, Arci can make her physical scenes totally engrossing by giving them the right form and ‘attitude.’
“Pangarap kong makasapak talaga, eh,” she joked about punching JC for a scene. In that episode, Caloy (JC), drunk and in love, chided Sam (Arci) for still keeping her feelings for Emman (Paulo) who can’t love her back while he’s there willing to give her what she deserves. Hurt and humiliated, Sam knocked him out with a single punch.
Arci shared they were all trying to act drunk before that take, especially Paulo who wishes to trade characters with JC. “Si Pau, gustong-gusto niya ‘yung character ni JC. Gusto niya maging Caloy kaya tinuturuan niya si JC kung paano umarte nang lasing. Lahat kami nagta-try umarte nang lasing.”
