MANILA, Philippines — Actor Enrique Gil visibly adored his partner Liza Soberano's performance in "Lisa Frankenstein," the actress' first Hollywood film.

Liza was in Los Angeles for the film's world premiere while Enrique attended the Philippine premiere to show his support.

"I'm so happy, I just can't believe it. We were just there in New Orleans shooting the film and just to be here at the premiere, it doesn't feel real," Enrique said. "I've always been a supporter since Day 1. Sabi ko talaga, 'Til the day I die, I will always support her.'"

The actor shared that Liza will briefly step away from promoting the film and come back to the Philippines just before Valentine's for a work event.

He sent her a message, hoping they can meet up during her brief return to the country as Liza needs to immediately fly back to the United States for other commitments.

After the screening, Enrique shared his initial reactions to "Lisa Frankenstein," singling out how funny it was and commending Liza's performance.

"The movie is amazing. Hopie was so amazing. I mean she said it was funny but I wasn't expecting this funny. She's amazing guys, you gotta watch it," Enrique said.

Enrique left shortly after the premiere but Liza's manager James Reid — who was also present with other people from his label Careless — echoed Enrique's comments.

"It was hilarious! Hope was both funny and a really great actress," James shared. "A different type of genre for her that we've never seen Liza in, and I think she killed it."

James noted Liza had a lot of screentime for someone in a supporting role, expressing his gratitude to director Zelda Williams — herself part-Filipino — for the opportunity to cast her.
