Iza Calzado plays mom to Julia Barretto's character in The Second Wife
What made Iza Calzado accept the offer of playing mother to 19-year old Julia Barretto?Thursday, July 07, 2016
Iza Calzado was reluctant at first when she was offered a role to become mother of teen actress Julia Barretto in ABS-CBN's upcoming primetime series The Second Wife.
Iza (33) admitted that she was surprised when she was offered the role parenting a 19-year old Julia.
“Wala pa nga akong anak," she said.
But what made her consider accepting the role was when fellow younger actresses Jodi Sta Maria and Angelica Panganiban played mothers to Daniel Padilla ang Kathryn Bernardo in Pangako Sa 'Yo. Then she did the calculation of such possibility.
"Honestly, if I got pregnant at 17 or something, I would have had her. She would have been my baby”, she said.
Calzado said to be considered for the role is already a huge honor since it has been her dream to work with actress Bea Alonzo.
“I’m very excited. This is a dream cast for me. This is also my first time to work with Star Creatives so talagang nung ibinalita sa akin, sabi ng manager ko noon, may ipi-pitch daw na project. Nung sinabi pa lang na si Bea 'yung kasama ko, sobrang na-excite na ako,” she said.
According to Calzado, “The Second Wife” is about an unconventional family and how they deal with their complicated lives. She'll play the first wife of Ian Veneracion’s character with Alonzo in the titular role.
