Iza Calzado recalls Hollywood experience

IZA Calzado has been spending her birthday for the past four years with the children suffering from the big C confined at the Philippine Children’s Medical Center on Quezon Ave. “I was doing ‘Te Amo’ when a cousin of mine who’s a nurse in the hospital called me saying a child patient of theirs wanted to see me in person,” she says. “So pinuntahan ko naman. That’s how it started.

“Nakita ‘yung saya sa mukha noong bata nang magdala ako ng cake para sa kanya. It gave me so much personal happiness and fulfillment na nakapagpasaya ako sa iba. Even the parents were very thankful, kaya tinuluy-tuloy ko na. Sa totoo lang, maliit na bagay ito compared to the blessings the Lord continues to give me.”

The management of the hospital is also thankful to her. The deputy director, Amelita Magno, even told the kids: “Let’s always pray for Ate Iza para she’ll get more blessings and good health para maibalik din niya ito sa inyo.”

“When I’m with them,” adds Iza, “talagang naiiyak ako kasi ang babata pa nila, pinagdaraanan na nila ang ganitong klase ng sakit. Kawawa talaga and I keep on praying na they’ll recover so their lives can return to normal. Doon mo talaga mas maa-appreciate having good health.”

One of the blessings she feels so thankful for is the chance to do a Hollywood movie, “The Echo,” which is slated for a November release in the U.S. How was it working with Hollywood stars like Jesse Bradford and Amelia Warner? “Masaya ang naging experience ko roon. Noong una, nahihiya pa ako kasi Hollywood stars sila, but they’re all very friendly. Kevin Durand, the actor who took the role played by Jomari Yllana in the original ‘Sigaw,’ bale siya yung abusive husband ko sa movie, is so big, 6’5", ang laking tao talaga pero ang gaan ng katawan and he sings and dances on Broadway. Kahit sa scenes na ginugulpi ako, he was so gentle at hindi ako nasaktan.”

Iza is now also studying how to dance with Douglas Nierras’ Powerdanz to improve her movements. We’re sure she’ll show what she has learned in this area as one of the guests in Ogie Alcasid’s “20/20” anniversary concert at the Big Dome later in September. When she’s featured in “Obra,” she wants to try to do off-beat roles. “Gusto ko namang gumanap ng killer, hindi ‘yung lagi na lang inaapi. Pero siyempre, kailangang may reason kung bakit ako pumapatay ng tao.”

Then she should watch “Dexter,” one of our favorite TV series today, which is about a serial killer.
