LOOK: Cagayan before the floods captured in Iza Calzado series ‘Loving Emily’
While the spotlight is on Cagayan Valley because of floods that have devastated the province, the web series “Loving Emily” casts the province in a different light.
Iza Calzado, who plays the title character in the iWant TFC original series, paid tribute to Cagayan after the show premiered yesterday, Nov. 18.
She shared photos on Instagram of sights in Tuguegarao City, including Buntun Bridge, where she and her costar Jameson Blake rode through on a motorcycle.
The bridge has been a different sight recently: after Typhoon Ulysses, the Cagayan River rose past the critical level of 12 meters on Buntun Bridge.

“Just want to take this time to honor the people of Cagayan who warmly welcomed us when we shot there last year. Our love and prayers go out to all of you during this difficult time,” she said on Instagram.
Calzado’s character journeys to her home province of Cagayan after her father dies, and reflects on why she left in the first place. She is tasked to return his car to an old friend while facing a personal crisis, which is the discovery of her husband’s affair. In her solo travel, she meets a young singer (Blake), with whom she has an instant connection. The series is directed by Gerardo Calagui, who hails from Tuguegarao himself. /ra
