The man behind the action scenes of so many Kapamilya teleseryes is a restaurateur and a real fan of martial arts. Direk Lester Pimentel shared stories about LizQuen, Kristine Hermosa and more at his Wangfu Restaurant Ayala Malls Vertis North branch yesterday(one among the 200+ chains of Wangfu and Rice In A Box he's managing). We've just met the new region from Isla ng Matutulis - the rejects from the other regions of Sansinukob of the top-rating teleserye Bagani on ABS-CBN: Aiko Melendez - Matadora, Charlie Dizon - Marikit, Eric Tai - Higa, Thou Reyes - Tongtong, Eslove Briones - Pakito, Jeff, Tam - Mango, Mark Andaya - Laki, Miko Peñaloza - Sarap. Ms. Aiko was happy getting the role of Matadora right after Wildflower.
Direk Lester shared updates on Bagani including the character of Kristine Hermosa as Malaya sacrificing from the wrath caused by Sarimaw that will make Bathala angry. Direk was also starstruck at Kristine exuding a real-life goddess taping for the first time. Enrique Gil as Lakas and Liza Soberano (even if she had to die last episodes) showed the most daring stunts according to Direk Lester. When asked which particular scene he had to summon the heavens for safety, the blasting of fireworks during the dragon scenes according to Direk Lester was the most difficult "buwis-buhay" they've made. Bagani will also launch a game app and more interactive website soon so don't miss it. For more info visit https://www.facebook.com/officialstarcreatives/
