Filipino singer Jake Zyrus’ acting skills got tested abroad as he was tapped to play a role in an upcoming Japanese action-drama movie.
KAMI learned that Jake will be seen in the film, "Yaru Onna" (She’s a Killer) as a supporting cast.
The former Youtube sensation excitedly revealed the minor details about his character in the said movie.
“I play the role of Akira, parang best friend ako nung bida na si Aiko, played by Kang Ji-Young,” he explained in an interview with ABS-CBN.
“Kamay niya ako. Isa siyang assassin tapos ako 'yung tumutulong sa kanya na maghanap ng next target niya,” he added.
Jake admitted that it was the film producers who picked him for the important role.
Aside from having a character to play, he was also tapped to sing the soundtrack of the movie.
“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,” Jake exposed.
As to his relationship with co-actors and production team, he gladly said that he easily got comfortable with them.
According to the Little Big Star champion, the cast and production crew were very respectful and supportive of him.
“We were there for two weeks and 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,” he remarked.
“Nakakatuwa din po kasi pati credits, from Charice Pempengco to Jake Zyrus, pinalitan din nila talaga and they’ve been supportive about it,” he added.
The movie will be shown in October this year. However, it is still unsure if it will be shown in the Philippines.
