Iza Calzado will soon be back on primetime television with Hawak Kamay where she will be starring alongside Piolo Pascual and Nikki Gil. According to Iza, she will be portraying a character with a strong personality. She also revealed that she will be playing the role of a lawyer in the serye.
"I play Bianca Magpantay, she is a strict lawyer na parang sa umpisa medyo strict ako, hindi masyado natutuwa [sa character ni] PJ (Piolo) pero I guess eventually magwa-warm ang heart niya especially in the beginning kailangan niya patunayan [ng character ni Piolo] na okay siya. I am just after the welfare of the kids and I always want what's right for the kids, what's fair," she shared in an exclusive interview with Push.com.ph.
Iza revealed that the strong personality of her character "Bianca" stems from her tough family life. "The back story ko, my father is a lawyer and I will take care of my father because my father is not healthy anymore and my father got into an accident and ‘yung focus ko talaga all on him so ‘yon ‘yung character ko kaya medyo hindi ako pa-girl, walang pa-sexy, seryoso ako,” she relayed.
The actress will be the love interest of Piolo in the soap. Iza further relayed, “So Hawak Kamay is a story of a man who faces the responsibility of taking care of three kids. And the question is if he is fit enough or responsible enough to take care of all three and that man is Piolo Pacual and I come into the picture as a DSWD lawyer, the family lawyer of his sister who passes away. That's how things start, ganon nag-unfold ang story. Ako ang lawyer ng mga kids and he is the guardian so napunta ‘yung mga kids sa kanya and it’s my duty and responsibility to see if he is fit.”
