After getting the chance to work with Coco Martin, new Kapamilya Ritz Azul is set to headline her very own soap soon.
Less than month since transferring to ABS-CBN, Ritz was introduced, along with her leading men Ejay Falcon, and Paulo Avelino for the upcoming series titled The Promise of Forever.
During the press announcement of her upcoming soap, Ritz admitted that she feels the need to prove herself to the network.
“As of now hindi pa ako nakapag-workshop pero sa [Ang] Probinsyano, noong sinalang ako, feeling ko na rin workshop kasi ang gagaling ng mga directors namin, Direk Malu [Sevilla], Direk Toto [Natividad], Direk Avel [Sunpongco],” she said.
But she assured that she would be undergoing necessary preparations for her role before the cameras start rolling for their soap.
“Ako po si Sophia dito, isang masayahing babae. Lumaki ako kasama ang mga tito at tita na matatawag. Mayroong nangyari sa buhay ko na hirap akong umibig kasi natatakot,” she described her character.
But Sophia would have a change of heart once she starts working on a cruise ship.
“Noong nakapagtrabaho na siya sa cruise, na-meet niya ang character ni Paulo Avelino. And doon na yung istorya [iikot] kung magmamahalan ba sila, o mamahalin ba siya ni Sophia and mahahanap ba niya yung love beyond forever,” she continued.
Prior to transferring to the Kapamilya network, Ritz was known for baring skin in her past home network.
“Nagbago. I think, mas kung sino ako. Simple, probinsyana, yung totoong ako, mas makikita nila yun dito sa ABS,” she explained.
But Ritz is not completely dismissing the possibility of her showing some skin.
“I think naman kasi yung pagpapakita ng skin, depende sa kailangan. Sa akin naman, kaya ko rin naming magpakita ng skin pero hindi naman siguro yung pakita na walang dahilan. At ito naman sa akin, kasi as ako talaga, hindi talaga ako sanay magpakita ng skin, yung [magsu-suot ng] mini-shorts, ganoon, “ she explained. “Abangan na lang nila kung magpapakita ako ng skin.”
Aside from Ritz, Paulo and Ejay, the new teleserye will also feature include Benjie Paras, Nico Antonio, Angel Aquino, Cherry Pie Picache, and Amy Austria in the cast.
