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.

      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!
