In the upcoming series titled The Second Wife,” Iza Calzado was given the role of a mother to actress Julia Barretto.
She then shared with ABS-CBN News reporter Gretchen Fullido that she was surprised about the role, given that she’s still single in real life.
“Wala pa nga akong anak. I thought about it. If Angelica Panganiban and Jodi Sta. Maria played the mothers of Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, how can I not play Julia’s mom? Honestly, if I got pregnant at 17 or something, I would have had her. She would have been my baby,” she said.
Iza added that it is a ‘dream cast’ for her since she has always wanted to work with Bea Alonzo.
“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.”
According to the actress, the story will revolve around their not-so-traditional family and they aim to deliver intense scenes through their dialogues.
“Sana madaan sa linya lang at sana magustuhan ng ating mga manonood.”
