MANILA, Philippines – Days ahead of Liza Soberano’s portrayal as Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach in "Maalaala Mo Kaya" , the actress made buzz following a release of the episode’s teaser video and behind the-scene photos.
From training to photoshoots until winning the coveted crown, Liza was able to imitate Queen P in her role.
In just two hours after the teaser was posted on Facebook, the video already earned over 25,000 reactions and more than 6,000 shares.
It was reported that the gown and the crown Liza used was just a replica but Pia confirmed that she let her use the real sash for the Miss Universe 2015 pageant scene.
“But the sash is real. I lent it to her,” Pia wrote in a comment on an Instagram post.
“I have three. Silver black and red. The red I got as a bonus Miss universes that focus on HIV/AIDS awareness get to wear it but I got to keep mine. Pinahiram ko ung silver coz that's the one I got when I was crowned,” the former beauty queen said.
