Ryza Cenon Junks Previous Sweet Image To Do A More Mature & Daring Role As Gabby Concepcion's Mistress In 'Ika-6 Na Utos'

RYZA CENON has junked her previous sweet image and now projects herself more as a sexpot. She's no longer averse to being photographed in provocative outfits and admits she has some sexy scenes in “Ika-6 na Utos” as the mistress of Gabby Concepcion.

“I was only 16 when I joined showbiz sa Starstruck 2 in 2004,” she says. “I’m now 28 years old, not getting any younger, and it’s about time mag-level up na ang career ko by doing more mature roles. I accepted the role of Georgia, the interior designer who becomes a willing mistress in ‘Ika-6 na Utos’, kasi sobrang iba at bago for me ang demands ng role ko. I have to learn how to seduce and show why my character is willing to be an other woman. And I really want to work with our director, si Ms. Laurice Guillen, who’s a well known trainor sa acting workshops, kaya alam ko I’ll learn a lot from her.”

She’s also inspired by her co-stars, Gabby Concepcion and Sunshine Dizon. “Pareho silang magaling
so I know I have to always give my best dahil ayokong basta lamunin na lang nila ako sa mga eksena namin. Nakaka-pressure but I use it as motivation para mas maging maayos ang performance ko. Inaral ko talaga kung paano ang tamang paraan ng pang-aakit ng lalaki and how to handle the stolen moments namin ni Sir Gabby when we’re together. Si Ate Shine naman, pinaghandaan ko pati ang sampalan scene namin. Alam kong puede akong masaktan but okay lang, basta sa ikagaganda ng eksena. Masarap silang katrabaho kasi very encouraging. Kapag nai-stress ako sa taping, they tell me, ‘Kaya mo yan.’ At nakakaya ko nga.”

How did she feel doing the hot love scene with Gabby? “I was emotionally ready, so kahit may kaba pa rin, okay lang. Kasi, some folks, ang tingin sa akin hanggang ngayon, teenager pa rin ako. So I want to show here na tumanda na ako, puede na ako sa mature roles. In fairness to Sir Gabby, napakabait niya, inalagaan niya ako sa eksena at kinilig din ako kasi ang guwapo talaga niya.”

“Ika-6 na Utos” starts airing tomorrow, Monday, after “Eat Bulaga”, and also stars as Mike Tan as Angelo, who helps Sunshine after Gabby deserts her; Rich Asuncion as Flor, Sunshine’s caring best friend; Daria Ramirez as Lourdes, Sunshine’s weak-willed mom; Carmen Soriano as Margarita, Gabby’s mom who maltreats Sunshine; Marco Alcaraz as Chandler, Gabby’s understanding confidante; Mel Martinez as Zeny, Carmen’s obnoxious alalay and Arianne Bautista as Selma, Ryza’s best friend who tries to knock some sense into her head.
