Following the reveal of Kapamilya actress Liza Soberano coming on board to voice the lead character of the upcoming Filipino animated series “Trese,” creators Kajo Baldisimo and Budjette Tan made stunning art of Liza as Alexandra Trese.
On Instagram, writer Budjette shared the drawing of artist Kajo that depicted the actress wearing Alexandra’s iconic coat and signature hairstyle.
Budjette then quoted Liza expressing her excitement over her involvement in the much-awaited show in the caption of his post. “It’s an honor to be the voice of an iconic character such as Alexandra Trese. I’m a huge fan of Budjette and KaJO’s award-winning Trese comics. Maraming salamat! Excited nako!,” Liza said at the time of the reveal.
Kajo also drew Filipino-Canadian star Shay Mitchell, who will be voicing Alexandra in the English dub of the series, as the titular character.
“I’m so excited to be a part of a unique and amazing project like Trese, and to voice a character as brilliant as Alexandra Trese. Philippine folklore is rich and fascinating, and I am thrilled to be a part of the team bringing this story to life,” Shay was quoted saying.
Set in Manila where the mythical creatures of Philippine folklore live in hiding amongst humans, “Trese” follows Alexandra Trese traveling all over the city and going head-to-head with a criminal underworld comprised of malevolent supernatural beings.
