As Isagani and Dianne on Los Bastardos, Kapamilyas at home get to spend afternoons with them from Monday to Friday. But how much do you know about Jake Cuenca and Ritz Azul behind the scenes? This episode of Kapamilya Confessions is your chance since they will be answering questions from netizens!
The most challenging role that Ritz has ever played was when she had to be someone’s wife. She felt it was difficult because she has never been married in real life. Yet, one of the lessons she has learned as an actress is how to put yourself in others’ shoes. As she portrays different people, she has the chance to see their perspectives and struggles. This has tremendously helped her in being more open minded, “Natuto akong hindi mag-judge agad agad.”
On the other hand, Jake will never forget acting alongside Joem Bascon in 2013’s “Lihis.” He feels that this was one of the biggest challenges he faced early in his career, because he was not as mature then as he is now. More recently, however, joining the theater has proven to be a new test for him. Aside from every performance being live, it is a completely different environment than the usual movie and television set. Nevertheless, his love for this craft pushes him to explore. He learned over the years that the industry is filled the temporary, from the money to the fame. So, only true passion and love for the performing arts is what keeps an artist going.
The two also talked about their movie “KontrAdiksyon” which they hope people would learn from and be entertained by. Before all of this, Jake admitted to making his girlfriend cry for a scene while Ritz promised that she has never worn underwear for more than three days. Watch this video to see them plead not guilty in the Guilty or Not Guilty Challenge, then make revelations in Kapamilya Confessions!
