He shared that he got the blessing of Daniel’s mother Karla Estrada to impersonate her son and even gained tips from his co-performer, the so-called “Queen Mother” on how he can better copy Daniel’s moves.
“Daniel has a certain laugh. So I did it, and she (Karla) said I should minimize it because I looked like Budoy. So I followed her advice and it was okay with her,” shared EA.
EA also said that although he gets to enjoy a day being the Teen King, he is motivated to give his best to make the KathNiel fans happy. “I’m pressured. But what’s great is their fans wish me good luck on Twitter and Instagram. They encourage me to do my best, because I tell them I will do everything to impersonate their idol,” he said.
Meanwhile, other “Your Face” celebrity performers are also more than ready to face the jury. Also undergoing a total transformation for the upcoming episode are Jolina Magdangal as Cher, Melai Centiveros as Blakdyak, Maxene Magalona as Ariana Grande, Tutti Caringal as April Boy Regino, Nyoy Volante as Tina Turner, Jay-R as Bamboo, and Karla as Meghan Trainor.
