Andrea Torres continues mixed martial arts training for her role as Venus in Alyas Robin Hood.
The Kapuso actress said while waiting for the second season of GMA-7's superhero series, she kept on training for martial arts, boxing, and Muay Thai.
She said that what she can apply what she learned from the training not only on the show but in real life as well.
“Gamitin na natin... sa self defense!” she said.
“Na-inspire ako kay Venus. Okay pala yun, na yung babae is strong, marami siyang alam, kahit saan mo siya dalhin, alam niya kung paano dalhin ang sarili niya.”
However, she was hoping that she won't have to practice these self-defense skills in real life.
“Sana naman hindi kailanganin,” she said.
“Hindi, kapag siyempre sa mga news ngayon, kailangan ready ka kahit mag-isa ka lang.”
HAPPY SET. Meanwhile, Andrea says her co-workers in Alyas Robin Hood remained to be a happy group.
“Wala naman pong ilangan, very professional naman po lahat. Happy set, inspired kaming lahat,” Andrea says about their return for the second season of the show.
She added, “Siyempre kasi, parang nakasama mo na sila ng isang buong season, so parang comfort zone mo na silang lahat.
“Parang mas madaling mag-experiment, mas may teamwork kaming lahat.
“Wala ng adjustment, siguro parang ang iniisip na lang namin ay kung ano pa ang puwedeng gawin.
“Kasi, ang goal nga namin is parang mag-level up.
“So, ano pang puwedeng madagdag para mas maging interested ang mga tao.
“Siyempre, may idea na sila sa role ko, role ng iba, so para lang may panggulat.”
With regard to the show's lead actor, Dingdong Dantes, Andrea said it's still easy to do scenes with him.
“Always naman po kapag kami ang magkaeksena, parang ang dali.
“Kasi, with Kuya Dong naman, kitang-kita mo sa kanya si Pepe at saka maraming akong natututunan sa kanya.
“It's always fun working with him,” said the Kapuso actress.
Completing the love triangle in this season is the newest cast member Solenn Heussaff. She will play the role of Iris Lizeralde, a high-society “it girl who will fall in love with Robin Hood."
Actors Edu Manzano, Jay Manalo, and Ruru Madrid will also join the cast of Alyas Robin Hood.
Watch for the return hooded vigilante hero Alyas Robin Hood weeknights starting August 14 on GMA Telebabad.
