Liza Soberano wears a replica of Pia Wurtzbach's Miss Universe crown for the June 3 episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya.



Liza Soberano steps into the shoes of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach for an episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK).

Liza, as previously reported, will depict the life story of Pia for the June 3 episode of ABS-CBN's drama anthology.

In the teaser released last May 27, Liza is seen wearing a red gown while training for beauty pageants.



The last frame also showed Liza wearing a replica of the Miss Universe crown.

The Kapamilya actress also wore a green gown resembling Pia's ensemble during the homecoming parade after she won the title.


A flashback of Pia's victory during the Binibining Pilipinas 2015 pageant was also showed in the teaser.


The MMK episode will depict Pia's journey as a beauty queen: from her two failed attempts at winning a crown in Binibining Pilipinas to her victory in the Miss Universe pageant in 2015.

Liza was first reported to portray Pia in MMK last May 23, as confirmed by her manager Ogie Diaz.

Singer-actress Zsa Zsa Padilla, who will play as Pia's mother in the episode, also posted photos with Liza on Instagram.

She also posted Pia and Liza's meeting on the set of MMK.



Liza has been training at beauty camp Aces and Queens for the episode.

Aces and Queens is also the same group that trained Pia since she joined Binibining Pilipinas.

The episode is helmed by MMK resident director Nuel Naval, who also directed the glossy fashion drama Magkaribal in 2010.

The Pia Wurtzbach episode serves as Liza's MMK comeback after three years. Her last appearance was in 2014 where she was paired with Enchong Dee.
