But recently, there’s a news that she will not be a part of the third Sarah-Lloydie movie anymore.
Iza confirmed it at Cinema News last Watsons 10th Anniversary celebration in SM MOA last Monday, October 22.
“I’m clarifying it once and for all. Kayo na ang naunang nagtanong, hindi na ako kasama.”
“I think hindi po nagtugma yung schedule. Kasi ang taping nina John Lloyd for A Beautiful Affair ay T-Th [Tuesday-Thursday], ako naman, M-W-F [Monday-Wednesday-Fridays] for Kahit Puso’y Masugatan.”
“So, hindi talaga magsalubong ang aming schedule.”
“Of course it’s their film, the priority is their schedule. Ako naman ay napasali lang dun.”
“Siguro I would think na lang na this is not meant to be my comeback film for Star Cinema. Maybe it’s something else,” Iza said.
“Siyempre nanghinayang naman ako. Ang pangit sabihin na walang panghihinayang.”
“Siyempre I was looking forward to working with John Lloyd and Sarah, and everybody else on the set and Direk Cathy [Garcia-Molina].”
“Pero like I’ve said, marami talagang proyekto na nandiyan na, nawawala pa, and sometimes it’s really for the best.”
SHOW IS EXTENDED. Though her role was cancelled on the said movie, Iza is still happy because of the warm welcome of the viewers and high ratings of her TV series, Kahit Puso’y Masugatan.
“Apparently it’s doing great rating-wise, but I’m more concerned with the storyline kasi.”
“So far, I have to say na talagang inaalagaan ni Direk Wenn [Deramas] ang istorya ng aming teleserye at tuwang-tuwa ako dahil maraming tao ang lumalapit sa akin.”
“Sabi nila pinagpupuyatan nila yung show, naa-appreciate nila, at sabi nila paganda raw nang paganda yung istorya.”
“Sabi ko nga, ‘Bakit, pangit ba dati?’ Niloloko ko sila, ha-ha-ha!”
“Sa mga sumusubaybay ng KPM [Kahit Puso’y Masugatan], maraming salamat mula sa aming lahat na bumubuo ng show.”
Due to the good appearance of the show, it is extended.
“Actually hanggang January siya, but it’s really until November lang, yun talaga ang original,” Iza said.
“Because of the ratings? Because of whatever, I don’t know, pero yun ang hindi pa natin alam.”
MAKING TIME FOR LOVE. How’s the love life of the actress?
“It’s still lovely, thank you,” Iza said.
Her boyfriend Ben Wintle is a non-showbiz person again. Doesn’t the hectic schedule becoming an issue to him?
“Kung issue ang oras? Hindi. Nagagawan ng paraan ang lahat ng ‘yan.”
“Tsaka he is very supportive, he encourages me. He just wants me to do what I need to do in my life. Para sabay kayong maging masaya.”
“Hindi naman puwedeng kayod lang, kailangang namamayagpag din kayo sa mga personal ninyong buhay,” Iza added.
It seems like Iza is very happy with her relationship now. Is it possible that he is the one she will be with forever?
“Maybe! Sabi nga you can never can tell,” Iza laughed.
“Basta I am very happy.”
