The villains in Voltes V: Legacy ready to wreck havoc!
Now ready to wreck havoc are the villains in the much-awaited live-action adaptation of the Japanese anime series “Voltes V: Legacy” of GMA Network.
Martin del Rosario has been chosen to play Prince Zardoz, the Prince of the Boazanians who will lead in attacking and eventually governing the whole world. Martin considers this the biggest break in his acting career.
“Yung puso ko talagang kumabog nang kumabog kasi alam ko kung gaano kalaki itong project na ito. Ang daming good roles na dumating sa akin, pero kino-consider ko itong si Prince Zardoz as my biggest break.”
On the other hand, the character Zandra, who loves Prince Zardoz is played by Liezel Lopez. Related the Kapuso actress; “Noong nag-audition po ako, hindi siya ‘yung usual na kontrabida na like strong. I focused on the love for Zardoz and I think maybe that is the reason why ako ‘yung napili.”
Meanwhile, Epy Quizon plays the scientist and cruel adviser of Prince Zardoz Zuhl. “This is unique because this is from my childhood. Nilalaro ko ‘yung Voltes V so to be part of this show is really not just an honor but bumalik ‘yung pagkabata ko,” Epy says.
Carlo Gonzales breathes life to General Draco. In preparation for his role, Carlo has to grow his beard in keeping true to his character. “Malaking tulong ‘yung quarantine dahil I don’t need to go out anymore, talagang bahay lang ako. I don’t need to groom it; I just need to grow it out,” he related.
Watch out for the other colorful characters in the upcoming and much anticipated anime series “Voltes V: Legacy” on GMA-7.
