Remember when Liza Soberano played Pia Wurtzbach in an episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya” about the Miss Universe 2015’s life? Well, Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray has someone in mind to play her if a movie is to be made about her.

As reported on Push, the beauty queen-turned-singer, who spoke to Metro.Style editor-in-chief Geolette Esguerra for “Metro Chats” recently, stated that she has her eyes on young singer Jayda Avanzado – the only daughter of Jessa Zaragoza and Dingdong Avanzado.


“She popped into my head because literally I had an interview with her. Jayda,” said Catriona. “She just turned 18. She’s your cover girl. And I worked with her for [“Sunday Noontime Live”],” said Catriona.

The beauty queen sang praises on Jayda for her talent in music, and stated that they share several similarities including being “an old soul” and an only child.

“So we have that in common. So yeah, I think Jayda,” she said.

The 18 year-old Jayda also shared the said interview on her social media and expressed how moved she is with a pleading face and a heart emoji.
