This Week on 'We Rise Together': Iza, Jodi, Sam, Joseph + new Rise artists!

It was a rollercoaster of emotions on this week's episodes of "We Rise Together"!

The week started out by welcoming the five new members of the Rise Artists Studio family, namely Karina Bautista, Aljon Mendoza, Shanaia Gomez, Zach Castañeda, and Bianca De Vera.

Together with their fellow Rise artist Charlie Dizon, she and DJ Jhai Ho interviewed the five of them about what they’re looking forward to now that they’re part of ABS-CBN Film’s talent management arm. The five young stars also opened up on how they were tapped by Rise to be part of the growing fam.

The dashing leading men of “Ang Sa Iyo ay Akin” Sam Milby and Joseph Marco joined the March 17 episode, and they talked about the greatest lessons they’ve learned from the series.

According to Sam, his character Gabriel really taught him about taking responsibility for all of his actions.

Sam explained, “Sa mga sitwasyon, ang iniisip palagi, ikaw ang may kasalanan. Itong nangyari sa’kin dahil sa'yo. It's easy to point a finger but it's so hard to accept responsibilities sa mga sitwasyon.”

“Sa journey ni Gabriel, it's seeing the bigger picture and learning, 'Ako rin naman ang may kasalanan dito. Malaki ang kasalanan ko. Lahat ng nangyari, ako ang may kasalanan.’ [It’s about] taking responsibilities sa mga actions,” he added.

Meanwhile, Joseph admitted that he hasn’t felt attachment to a character in a while since his 2014 teleserye “Pure Love.”

“Dito sa role ni Avel, na-attach talaga ako and ‘yung pinaka challenge talaga sa kanya is, halos buong buhay niya iniisip niya maghiganti. But noong nakilala niya si Marissa, nagbago lahat. It's more of like understanding each situation sa nangyayari sa'yo before you do actions,” he said.

A few hours before the much-anticipated finale of "Ang Sa Iyo ay Akin," Iza Calzado and Jodi Sta. Maria had a chit-chat during the March 19 episode as they reminisced their shooting days for the series.

In the show, the two actresses shared the secret to how they were able to do such effective portrayals.

"I think maganda na kakilalang-kakilala mo 'yung ka-eksena mo. 'Yung hindi ka magtatantya na, 'Kapag ginawa ko ba 'to, will she take this against me? Will she say na pinersonal ko?' Ang hirap kasi 'yung nakikipag-compete sa'yo," Jodi said.

"Pero with us, kahit sabihin mong highly emotional 'yung mga eksena namin, very physical pa, may tiwala kami sa isa't isa. It's all for the scene lang talaga," she added.

Iza also said how having respect for each other helped them get through their intense scenes.

"We're both firm believers na partnership siya, in the same way na 'yung mga love team. It's a partnership, eh. Bukod sa trust, 'yung respeto natin sa isa't isa mataas," she said.
