At last, after 7 years of shining in the music industry a new door has opened for Asia’s Soul Supreme, KZ Tandingan, as she plays a leading role in her first movie “The Art of Ligaw” together with Epy Quizon.
According to the plot, Carisse (KZ) is a millennial girl from Davao who is about to be courted by a 40-year-old something Jake (Epy) who came from Manila.
In an interview with ABS CBN news, the X Factor Philippines grand champion has mixed emotions in the newest challenge in her career.
“Noong una ko pong nalaman, na-overwhelm ako. Kasi, singer naman talaga ako e. Sa 7 years ko dito sa industriya, singer ako. So noong sinabihan po nila na aarte ako, sobrang nalula ako. Pero I always tell myself na you’ll never grow in your comfort zone. So noong sinabi nila sa akin na I was given this opportunity, to be part of this movie, tumalon ako sa bangin knowing na nandon sila to guide me. Talagang inalalayan ako, hindi ako pinabayaan sa project.”
Now what can a veteran actor Epy Quizon has to say to KZ’s first acting opportunity?
“She reminds me of Ate Guy [Nora Aunor]. Oo, alam natin iba si Ate Guy. KZ is small, petite, Pinay na Pinay, expressive eyes, kumakanta rin, nagsimulang kumakanta, tapos noong pinaarte namin. Nagulat talaga ako,” he said.
KZ also sings for the official soundtracks in the movie such as Quicksand, Walang Hiy

The film is directed by Jourdan Sebastian, and will be shown in theaters starting November 13.
