"Nakakatuwa na nakakatakot."
This was how Ryza Cenon told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other reporters about the feedback she receives for her mistress role in Ika-6 Na Utos.
Giving a shy smile, the actress who plays Georgia reasoned out, "Kasi may mga death threat na rin kasi, e!
"Kahit sabihin nating huwag na lang pansinin, di naman totoo 'yan, nakakatakot pa rin kasi baka yung iba seryoso.
"Lalo na ngayon, nauuso yung kahit mga bata, binabaril. Ako pa kaya na meron silang dahilan bakit sila nagagalit!"
At one point, Ryza posted screenshots of threats she received via Instagram.
She laughed while narrating, "Shinare ko na, at least kung may mangyari man sa akin, alam niyo na!"
What is the worst threat a basher told her on social media?
"Pati yung family ko, papatayin nila! Yun na yung pinaka OA na masyado na, sobra na.
"Okay lang na ako na lang yung i-death threat niyo ng i-death threat, pero yung pati pamilya ko, idamay niyo, mali na."
Despite this setback, the GMA actress said that these threats won't stop her from doing more kontrabida roles.
"Hindi naman, depende naman. Kung nakaya ko naman i-handle ng one year, okay lang!"
In fact, she enjoyed portraying the kontrabida to Sunshine Dizon in this Kapuso afternoon drama, which recently celebrated its first anniversary on the air.
Ryza admitted, "Oo naman, nakaka-enjoy naman talaga ang pagkokontrabida. Kung papipiliin ako kung bida o kontrabida, mas pipiliin ko talaga kontrabida kasi kaya mo siyang laruin, e.
"Marami kang pwedeng laruin. Pwede kang magpaawa, pwede kang hindi magpaawa, pwedeng baliw lang so mas nakaka-enjoy, mas colorful yung character."
With regards to the success of Ika-6 Na Utos, Ryza said that it was unexpected, especially since their run was extended from the original three months to more than one year.
"Sobrang blessed namin na hindi namin inexpect na kakagatin siya ng tao, kasi ang unang plano lang naman, three months lang, susubukan lang. Hindi namin alam na kinagat na siya."
PEP.ph interviewed Ryza during a press visit to the set of Ika-6 Na Utos held on December 11 at Celebrity Sports Plaza in Quezon City.
