Jake Zyrus will soon star in a Japanese action-drama film titled Yaru Onna (She’s a Killer).
His role in the said movie is important, he revealed, “I play the role of Akira, parang best friend ako nung bida na si Aiko, played by Kang Ji-Young.
“Kamay niya ako. Isa siyang assassin tapos ako ‘yung tumutulong sa kanya na maghanap ng next target niya.”
Jake did not audition for the role. He was personally handpicked and was also asked to sing the movie’s theme song.
“They handpicked me for the role. Last year, nag-start kami mag shoot. Kaya sa movie, maliit pa ang boses ko, before the transition ‘yun, and ako din po ang kumanta ng theme song.
“We were there for two weeks and a half. Sobrang gaan po nila ka-trabaho, sobrang mahinanon and nakakatuwa pa akala nila nag-transition na ako noong andoon na ako and they’re very respectful about it,
“Nakakatuwa din po kasi pati credits, from Charice Pempengco to Jake Zyrus, pinalitan din nila talaga and they’ve been supportive about it.”
