UST A THOUGHT: A happy heart makes the face cheer­ful, but heartache crushes the spirit. – Proverbs

• BIG­GEST TV ROLE: Her cur­rent se­ries, Ngayon at Kailan­man, can be con­sid­ered her big­gest break, at long last, as a tele­serye lead.

Ac­tress in ref­er­ence is Iza Calzado, who has shown con­sis­tency in act­ing out the role of op­pressed/venge­ful Re­becca in said tele­drama. A re­cent episode fur­ther called at­ten­tion to Iza’s gifts as an ac­tress as she fi­nally re­al­ized Ju­lia Bar­reto is her long lost daugh­ter.

Iza was al­ter­nately mov­ing as she was pa­thetic, a flood of tears rolling down her cheeks like some wa­ter­falls in Min­danao. PROJECT WED­DING: In a re- cent con­ver­sa­tion, Iza told us work­ing on the tele­serye plus a new movie for Iflix has been keep­ing her away from her other project, her own wed­ding.

Iza is set to marry her half-Bri­tish, half-Filipino fi­ance, Ben Win­tle, in a beach wed­ding at an undis­closed place.

Iza is the new­est Belo bride. Un­der Dr. Vicki Belo’s su­per­vi­sion, she does RF treat­ments such as Venus Freeze.

• BAL­ANC­ING ACT: Iza says her fu­ture hus­band com­ple­ments her. “Ben and I bal­ance each other out. We fill each other’s weak­nesses with our strengths.’’

On beauty reg­i­men: I cleanse and mois­tur­ize my face (Pond’s Girl here!). I eat lots of veg­eta­bles and fruits, drink co­pi­ous amounts of wa­ter, drink bone broth soup, rich in col­la­gen, and try to get enough sleep. I al­ways wear a smile on my face.

(Smil­ing through her tough scenes op­po­site her an­tag­o­nists has been Iza’s se­cret weapon on Ngayon at Kailan­man).

HOW THEY MET: Iza and Ben met while she was host­ing launch of Esquire mag­a­zine in 2011.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Ben is a tech en­tre­pre­neur, founder-CEO of app, Booky, which started as a food app.
