Kylie Verzosa is the latest beauty queen-turned-actress to take on the role of a superhero.

During the recently concluded History Con 2018, the Miss International 2016 was officially introduced as the lead star of Epik Studios' upcoming movie Osyana.

Osyana is based on the graphic novel by Charles Santino, which was illustrated by Jim Jimenez.

According to the creators, Osyana was inspired by the Filipino folklore of the Badjaos. "The fearless sea siren is beautiful, mysterious, wild, and free. The ocean is all she wants to be," they said.
