Iza Calzado appeared on Toni Gonzaga’s digital talk show “I Feel U” and it was the “Starting Over Again” mini-reunion we've all been waiting for!
Yesterday, October 11, Toni welcomed Iza to the show saying, “She has this divine beauty, kaya naman ang naging tawag namin sa kanya ay ‘Mama Mary.’”
The two ladies worked together in the now-iconic movie “Starting Over Again” together with Piolo Pascual way back in 2014.
Iza recalled, “Naalala mo ba ‘yung first day ng shoot ko? ‘Yung mali-mali ako. Mali-mali talaga. Tarantang-taranta ako noon kasi kinakabahan ako.”
The actresses then recalled how they shot their legendary confrontation sa kitchen scene.
According to Iza, she started filming for her scenes mid-way through the production. At that point, Toni and Piolo had already done a bunch of scenes together. As such, Iza felt extremely nervous, especially because she was also working with the master director, ABS-CBN Film Productions Managing Director, Olivia Lamasan.
Iza said of their confrontation scene, “Girl dalawang araw natin shinoot ‘yun.”
Toni then added, “Parang alas sais na ng umaga nag-aaway pa kami ni Iza (laughs). Na ako ‘yung butangera, ikaw ‘yung talagang prim and proper. The classy lady.”
Iza then shared, “Ang tagal ko bago nakuha ni ‘yung gusto ni Inang dun. Kasi ‘di ba nung una, iyak ako nang iyak. ‘Yun pala gusto niya i-hold. Ang hirap din naman mag-hold ng tears ah.”
Toni also remembered how Iza supported her during times when Direk Olivia wanted to get the right emotion out of her for a scene, and would keep pushing her.
“Sobrang motherly and sobrang true friend ka doon,” said Toni. “Sabi ko, ‘Grabe ang bait ni Iza.’ Talagang pina-pacify mo ‘ko.”
