The Breakout Loveteam of Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano, collectively known as LizQuen, is definitely influencing the romantic folks all over the country. From a talk-of-the-town TV series, Forevermore, Enrique and Liza are set to conquer the big screen in another romantic flick by Star Cinema, Just The Way You Are.
Based from the best-selling book The Bet by Kimberly Joy Villanueva (ilurvbooks on Wattpad), Just The Way You Are is about Drake, a popular guy who has lost a bet and was dared by his best friend to court a girl in a month and ask her to be his girlfriend. After she says, "Yes", he will tell her that he doesn't love her and all that happened between them was a game. But what if the nerdy transferee, Sophia, the girl his best friend chose, is more clever than they think she is? What will happen if she knows something about their pretty little secret?
Liza and Enrique have captured the hearts of the Filipino romantics in their hit series Forevermore and have instantly become the epitome of "forever". Their characters Agnes Calay and Xander Grande have made everyone believe that indeed, there is forever. Now Liza and Enrique, will once again make us fall in love with an inimitable love story and charming characters.
During the blogcon, Liza told us that it was somehow a challenge for her to portray the role of Sophia, as she needed to do some teasing even if she was supposed to be a nerd. The 17-year old, effortlessly sweet and beautiful Liza is obviously not yet comfortable doing these kind of stuff. Add to that, that while filming this movie, she was simultaneously doing a totally different character in her teleserye. But of course, she was able to overcome these, with the guidance of her directors and co-actors.
Liza's charming face and appeal is truly refreshing and her acting skill is so convincing that you won't even think of her as a newbie. She is also the sweetest and her kindness is quite noticeable in her gestures. No wonder a lot of showbiz experts confidently declare her as the Philippines' next biggest star.
Enrique, on the other hand, who is now also known as the modern Superman, thanks to his character in Forevermore, is also very much excited about the movie. Though he was not new to portraying roles of a confidently handsome man, he was still challenged as the movie required him to be more mature and serious on some scenes, as his and Liza's characters both had to deal with family problems.
Though this is going to be their 2nd movie together (they both appeared as supporting actors in She's The One starring Bea Alonzo and Dingdong Dantes), the pressure is now very much different since they are on the front banners this time. Their blockbuster appeal will now be tested in the cinemas.
Both young, with positive attitude and effortlessly beautiful and handsome faces, there's no wondering why these two are easily loved by the Filipino fans. Both are also good actors even if they are relatively new in the showbiz industry. Though they seem to be the real life princess and prince charming when it comes to looks, they both can also pull off differently challenging roles. With versatility, talent and unquestionable appeal - LizQuen is so ready to conquer the world of showbiz and their first movie as lead stars is adds up to their offering.
They promise more 'kilig' scenes and are sure to make you fall in love in Just The Way You Are. This is also the film debut of Director Theodore Boborol. Just The Way You Are is produced by Star Cinema and will hit cinemas on June 17!
