Accidents always happen on the set. Unfortunately, it happened to Liza Soberano whose finger got fractured while doing a fight scene in Bagani.
The ABS-CBN fantasy prime-time series will end after airing for the past five months.
At the farewell media conference of Bagani held last night, August 11, reporters noticed that her pointer finger on her left hand was wrapped with a bandage.
Liza said it was broken when they taped her fight scene with Bagani co-actor Justin Cuyugan last Wednesday, August 8.
She narrated, “Kasi when we were doing the scene, I guess, we were really feeling it and medyo nagmamadali din kami kasi umuulan and we have to get the show before it starts raining.
“We were able to practice the scene before we took it.
“But in the middle of the scene, I guess the emotions were too over.
“Accidents happen and natamaan yung kamay ko nung sword. It got fractured, but it's fine now.”
Liza was also quick to clarify that nothing serious happened to her fingers, “It's not a real sword.”
Her onscreen partner and rumored boyfriend Enrique Gil agreed that there will always be accidents on the set, especially when doing action scenes.
“Kapag action talaga, accidents really happen,” he said.
“You can't really say for sure kung safe ba yun o hindi.
“But you know, it's really good to know that they really put out there in the rain, they really gave their all. I think that's the most important part.
“But you know, accidents happen, action, e.”
Lester Pimentel, one of the directors of Bagani, applauded the ABS-CBN actors for giving their best in every scene that they do.
He said, “What's good about these guys, they do the physical thing very well, but they deliver the right emotion every time.
“Kailangan todo buhos sa emotion, kailangan to do hataw sa mga espadahan.
“That's something very, very difficult to do for a normal actors.
“But these are superb actors, so they deliver it on a day-to-day basis.”
In the end, Justin apologized to Liza, “Totoo po 'yang sinabi ni Direk, sa sobrang emosyon ko, hinataw ko yung daliri ni Liza. Ganun po ako ka-into Gaki.
“Yeah, I guess, accidents really do happen. I'm sorry, Liza.”
