On her shows, she’s the one who always begs for attention. She also plots numerous evil plans against her rivals. But in real life, Kapuso star Ryza Cenon is adored by many due to her impeccable acting skills. As a matter of fact, she received an offer from her home network’s rival ABS-CBN.
This coming January 24, Ryza Cenon will be on the big screen with movie and stage actor JC Santos for the film “Mr. & Mrs. Cruz” produced by both VIVA and Idea First. In an interview with the Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP), the Kapuso star revealed that having a movie project has always been one of the reasons why she opted to be an official VIVA Artist.
Although she has starred in a number of indie films, this is the first time she’ll lead in a mainstream movie.
She said, “Sa twelve years ko po ngayon lang ako nakagawa ng pelikula. May pressure for me kasi hindi ko alam kung paano ang mga process. Ngayon naman, natutunan ko na unti-unti.”
She also compared her experience to her most recent film project, saying, “Hindi ko alam kung paano siya i-handle. Kasi, yung Manananggal [sa Unit 23-B], indie siya. Ito kasi, mainstream, lahat makakapanood. So medyo kabado po talaga.”
Apart from that, she’s admitted that she feels pressured with the thought that the director, Sigrid Andrea Bernardo was the one who directed the blockbuster film “Kita Kita.”
Ryza explained, “Ganito pala ang feeling kapag gumagawa ka ng pelikula. Kumbaga, parang sa singer, isa siyang album. Isa siyang album para sa akin.”
But she claimed that working on a TV series is much harder than with films. She said, “Kasi everyday kang puyat. Halos buong araw kang nagta-trabaho. Kasi marami rin script, sunod-sunod. Ang movie, ten days, twelve days, tapos na siya.”
Ryza Cenon didn’t deny that she wanted to finish the “Ika-6 Na Utos” where she stars as the antagonist.
She admitted that she thinks it’s the right time to end the show since most of the viewers are now probably tired watching the afternoon show over and over again. She assumed that the show will air the finale in March this year.
Despite not renewing the contract under GMA Artist Center, Ryza acknowledged that her priority will always be the Kapuso network.
Ryza had this to say when asked if she received an offer from rival network ABS-CBN, “Meron po. Pero siyempre, sinasabi ko nga po, priority ko ang GMA. Kung may ibibigay po ang GMA for me, sila po yung priority ko.”
According to the 30-year-old actress, up to that moment, she hasn’t received any information if she will be given a follow-up project when “Ika-6 Na Utos” finishes. But Ryza said she’s praying to have another project as soon as they reached the finale.
