Kapuso Stars Gabbi Garcia and Thea Tolentino are undergoing different kinds of training for their upcoming action series. The two actresses are now taking up gun shooting and high-intensity interval training to be 100% ready for the show.
Gabbi and Thea trained with six-time speed shooting world champion Jethro Dionisio. Dionisio is particularly impressed with how quickly Gabbi picked up the skills, tagging her as a #fastlearner.
Gabbi shared that the series would be more of action than drama and she feels really honored for portraying this kind of role.
“Sabi kasi nila ito ay eighty percent action and twenty percent drama, So, I’m really thrilled and honored na mabali ‘yung typecasted notion natin na only guys can do action and only guys can hold a gun.
“Parang it’s such a great honor for us to be representing that kind of action star.”
Thea, on the other hand, had her knife-fighting training along with her target shooting practice.
“Nakakaba pala at talagang kinakabahan ako. Kasi nakaka-stress siya kapag pinangungunahan mo ‘yung recoil.”
The actress shared that she’s very excited about this upcoming series.
“Pero excited na ko para sa bagong show. Dito talaga mate-test ‘yung skills namin sa acting kasi ‘di lang ito drama, may kasamang action din.”
This series is rumored to be titled ‘Rosang Agimat’ which was one of the projects of GMA Network was planning in 2007 that would have starred Rhian Ramos.
This series might be pitted against ABS-CBN’s ‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,’ replacing ‘Kara Mia.’ Since it is an action-drama series, it may be a good counter to ‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.’
