Earlier this year, Heart Evangelista went to China and stayed there for the longest time (Okay, it was only for a month or so, but we missed her!). Rumor had it that she was working on the sequel to Crazy Rich Asians as part of its cast and the internet freaked out.
However, Heart denied this, saying that she hasn't been cast in the sequel. After this, people began speculating that Heart might be part of the live action Mulan remake!
We've been waiting for details about Heart's ~mystery~ project and she finally blessed us with a small tidbit. Yay! In an interview with Cinema One, the actress said that she was abroad to shoot an international action film. Heart shared, "Medyo nagulat rin ako sa sarili ko, but again you only live once. Try new things from time to time."
The project also required the actress to be more physically fit. According to Heart, "Everyday I wake up at 4:15 or 4:30 to workout."
"Knocked out! This is what happens after a full day of shooting," was one of Heart's captions for a photo while in China:
While there, she also toured around China, checking out the country's many historical sites:
Heart's previous films include My First Romance (2003), Mano Po 6: A Mother's Love (2009), and Sosy Problems (2016).
