ABS-CBN actress Iza Calzado is now gearing up for her most daring role in her 15-year acting career.
The 33-year-old actress agreed to do a topless scene for a psycho-thriller indie film to be helmed by Jerrold Tarod, the director behind the blockbuster period film Heneral Luna.
Iza talked about her daring new movie project to ABS-CBN News and select members of the media during the press conference of her latest movie My Candidate. Also starring Derek Ramsay and Shaina Magdayao, this movie helmed by Quark Henares is currently showing in cinemas nationwide.
Iza confirmed that "some parts" of her breasts will be exposed in the upcoming film.
Theater actress Adrienne Vergara will also have her share of daring scenes in the movie.
The Kapamilya actress revealed, "Makikita niyo na lang. Some parts.... Actually, it’s more sensual than sexy. Pero ano kasi siya e, marami talaga siyang nudity but not just for me, sa isang alaga rin ng manager ko [Noel Ferrer], si Adrienne Vergara."
When asked what are her preparations for the sexy scene, Iza quipped, "Kailangan ba ng preparation? 'Di na kailangan. Ready na tayo."
She added, "I think I’m a bit of a risk-taker. Work is work. As long as the role is kind of fun or challenging, I’m going to accept it. It doesn’t matter."
Members of the press also inquired if her boyfriend Ben Wintle already knows about the scene. Iza said her boyfriend was "very cool" about it.
She pointed out, "He’s very dedma even his parents, I’ve already told them."
Aside from the movie, Iza will also be part of ABS-CBN's upcoming primetime teleserye along with Bea Alonzo, Ian Veneracion, Enchong Dee, and Julia Barretto. The drama series will be handled by Star Creatives.
