Netflix has just announced that Liza Soberano and Shay Mitchell will both be voicing the main protagonist, Alexandra Trese, of the upcoming Filipino anime series on Netflix, TRESE.
Liza Soberano will be voicing Trese in the Filipino version of the series, while Filipino-Canadian star Shay Mitchell of YOU and Pretty Little Liars, will be voicing the English version of the series.
“It’s an honor to be the voice of an iconic character such as Alexandra Trese,” said Soberano in a statement from Netflix. “I’m a huge fan of Budjette and KaJO’s award-winning Trese comics. Maraming salamat! Excited na ako!”
“I’m so excited to be a part of a unique and amazing project like Trese, and to voice a character as brilliant as Alexandra Trese. Philippine folklore is rich and fascinating, and I am thrilled to be a part of the team bringing this story to life.” Said Shay Mitchell.
TRESE follows the eponymous detective as she solves cases that involve supernatural beings from Philippine folklore and local urban legends. It is based on the comic book series by Budjette Tan and KaJo Baldisimo.
The show is set to premiere on Netflix this year.
