Sanya Lopez Talks Superpowers and Life as a Sang'gre Encantadia's Danaya is a fresh face to watch out for.

Sanya Lopez is GMA's breakout new girl. From a supporting role in an afternoon drama series, the 19-year old actress will soon be seen on prime time TV when Encantadia debuts on July 18. Talk about a fast track to fame. We talk to Sanya about playing a superpowered woman, her racy costume, and why she'd love to teleport.

Hi Sanya! Since your role is sort like playing a superhero, who's your favorite superhero?

Superhero? Cat Woman, I guess? Kasi ang sexy niya eh and I find her so astig kasi  when it comes to her action sequences. Parang ang ganda niya tingnan yet ang sexy parin niya.

So if you had a superpower, what would it be?

TELEPORTATION!

Why?

Kasi diba ang traffic ngayon!

We like that you're superpower is pretty practical. *laughs*

Oo! Para makarating agad ako sa mga appointments. Kasi diba time is really gold. So nakakahiya naman paghintayin mo yung kapwa and friends mo. I find it na parang once na nandun ka kaagad, iba kasi rin yung trato rin sayo eh. Yung respect na nagagain mo kapag ikaw yung  nauuna sa work. 

You're currently cast as Danaya, but if you could play another Sang'gre who would it be?

Here's Sanya showing off her arnis skills.

Si Amihan kasi parang queenly. Queenly siya at magaling kasi siya sa sword fighting. If ever man ako yung gumanap sana non, siguro kailangan ng matinding aral don. So talagang maganda para kay Kylie yon na nakuha niya kasi magaling siya sa martial arts. Paborito ko talaga si Amihan kasi ang ganda, mukha siyang binibini.

What's your favorite part of your costume?

Everything! Her warrior look is my favorite, though. And then, yung isa pa—which is yung gown namin—is very elegant. Tapos parang ang gorgeous mo tingnan. Once na sinuot mo na yon nafefeel mo na ikaw talaga si Danaya.

We heard your costume is the raciest. What did you feel when you found out?


Napressure ako! *laughs* Kasi once I found out na yun yung sakin, at nakita ko dun sa monitor, I said, “Talaga?? Akin ba yan?” Bawal ang kanin. The other girls pwede pa eh! Kailangan everytime na kumakain ako kamote lang

What's your favorite thing about Danaya?

Sa physical kasi is gusto ko yung sexy siya. Sexy si Danaya. And pagdating naman sa personality, since pareho kasi kami na bunso, so pareho kami ng pinaglalabanpareho kaming may gusto patunayan. So gusto ko yung pagiging feisty niya.

What excites you the most about Encantadia?

Naexcite ako dun sa ano, sa tawagin na kami bilang sa character namin. Kasi sa ngayon medyo tatawagin pa kaming “Sanya” or “Gabbi” or “Kylie.” Excited na kami na mahalin din na kami ng mga tao na gaya ng pagtanggap dun sa dating Encantadia. Na parang paglumabas ako tatawagin akong, “Ay siya si Danaya!” Parang si Ms. Marian Rivera, nakilala siya bilang Marimar hindi agad yung parang “Ms. Marian Rivera,” naeexcite ako don. At syempre dun sa magiging reaction ng tao sa Encantadia, excited ako malaman.
