In preparation for the episode where she will be portraying herself, Lyca underwent an acting workshop under the supervision of “MMK” director Nuel Naval and veteran actress Malou de Guzman.

“In ‘MMK,’ viewers will see my life before I joined ‘The Voice Kids’,” said the 9-year-old singing champion, who was called the “Little Superstar” during the contest.

“Crying on cue was not so hard because Direk Nuel and Ms. Malou were there to guide me,” shared Lyca about how Naval and De Guzman helped her in her dramatic scenes.

Lyca, a small kid with big dreams from Tanza, Cavite, gained popularity for her heartfelt, amazing performances in “The Voice Kids” and humble background as a daughter of a fisherman. She would also sometimes help her mother scavenge for junk to sell.

Joining Lyca in her acting debut are Malou, Ronnie Lazaro, EJ Jallorina, Kokoy de Santos, Amy Nobleza, Jahren Estorque, Ian Galliguez, Marney Lapuz, Pepe Herrera, and Che Ramos. The episode is written by Benson Logronio and Arah Jell Badayos. “MMK” is led by business unit head Malou Santos and creative manager Mel Mendoza-del Rosario.
