“Yung sapawan hindi ganun eh. First of all, alam mo dapat kung ang eksenang ito ay highlight nung character. Ikaw dapat ay you are a support there.” she pointed out. Iza also said that teamwork is very important in this kind of project. For her, thinking of how to excel than the other will not be beneficial.
“Hindi magiging totoo yung nararamdaman namin sa isa’t isa. Grateful kami (ni Jodi) na kami yung pinagsama kasi walan ganun,” she added.
Iza Calzado shared that she is competing with herself. She always aspires to be better. With this, she realized that asking validation from other people will not help.
“I should also know when my work and I am enough. I did workshops but I never really studied for the craft and it’s something that I have been longing to do talaga. So in terms of competition, it was never a competition with another person,” she shared.
