MANILA, Philippines -- After her breakthrough performance in the hit series "Agua Bendita," actress Andi Eigenmann will be playing another classic Pinoy komiks character.

Actress Jaclyn Jose revealed that her daughter is set to play Galema, the daughter of the Zuma, famous for having a two-headed snake on his shoulders, in Jim Fernandez's famous Aliwan Komiks series.

At the 29th PMPC Star Awards held at AFP Theater in Quezon City on Sunday night, Jose said Eigenmann is also doing a new movie for Viva Films.

"Okay siya may movie siya sa Viva at magi-start siya ng 'Galema' by April. Ang movie niya with Viva ay iba at 'yung 'Galema' soap kay Wenn (Deramas)," Jose said.

Eigenmann was last seen on primetime TV in the recently concluded "Kapag Puso'y Sinugatan" on ABS-CBN, while her last movie was the box office hit "A Secret Affair."

Galema was most famously played by Snooky Serna in a 1985 movie opposite Max Laurel as Zuma.
