Enzo optimistic about Ryza’s network switch
Show biz is a small place, so it’s nice to know that someone I know from another network is now here,” Enzo Pineda said of Ryza Cenon, who inked a two-year contract with ABS-CBN, after spending 14 years with GMA 7.
Both are former GMA 7 stars who got their start in the industry through the reality-based talent search, “StarStruck.” Enzo became a Kapamilya in December 2016. Ryza, on the other hand, had just finished doing the successful series “Ika-6 na Utos” last month.
“Hopefully, I get the chance to work with her soon. I believe Ryza is one of the best actresses of our generation,” said Enzo, who’s now part of the ABS-CBN fantasy series, “Bagani.” “We all know she’s a good and simple person, and I’m sure she will go far.”
In moving from one station to another, Enzo said it’s important to maintain the same level of dedication to work. That’s the one piece of advice he could give Ryza, as the latter turns a new chapter in her life. “You just have to continue doing good work and be consistent,” he told reporters at a recent press conference.
As for his own career, Enzo said he’s “very satisfied” with how things were coming together for him.
“I have never run out of work since I stepped foot here. I’m thankful I’m being given a platform to show off my skill and do what I love to do, which is acting. I’m just always trying my best … I’m so glad my performances are being recognized,” he said. “I hope the blessings continue to come.”
It seems the 27-year-old celebrity’s hard work is starting to pay off in terms of acting and visibility.
“I would like to believe that I have improved my acting a lot. It has to do with maturity—all the experiences I have had throughout the years,” pointed out Enzo, who has also observed that he has been getting more followers on social media.
“Getting work already makes me happy. So it’s surprising and heartening, because I didn’t expect to receive this kind of appreciation,” he said. —ALLAN POLICARPIO
