Iza Calzado (born 12 August 1982) born as Maria Izadora Ussher Calzado, named after the legendary dancer, Isadora Duncan. Her father is choreographer and TV director Lito Calzado and her mother was the late Irish-Spanish-Filipina, Mary Ann Ussher. Iza's brother, Dash Calzado, is a member of Legit Misfitz, a Pinoy rap group.

She started out her career in the local Philippine show business around the year of 2002 as a shampoo commercial model and later on a guest teen star show Click! Her inclusion in the drama Kung Mawawala ka made everyone notice her acting skills thus making GMA decide that she should be given lead roles. Iza won her first heroine role on the soap opera Te Amo (I Love You) with the Argentine actor Segundo Cernadas. Later on she starred in different movies.

On January 18, 2008, Iza Calzado won the Model Star Award from the Korea Asia Model Award Festival.

      Nice! I think my daughter could give her some competition, but yes, she's beautiful! Had never heard of her before. My wife and I used to own a Filipino video store--so i'll have to go back through our lists and see if we had any movies with Iza in them. Congrats on a Squidoo masterpiece!
