Ryza Cenon: “Mas nag-e-enjoy ako sa pagiging kontrabida because mas nalalaro ko po siya.”
RYZA CENON – The “Kurdapya” star recently shared the reason why she enjoyed being a “kontrabida” or an antagonist.
The actress is playing a villain role in a new TV5 comedy series “Kurdapya” wherein she plays the role of Margie – a gold-digging girlfriend of Yassi Pressman’s father in the series.
According to a report on Inquirer, the actress shared during the show’s grand media conference for the series that she enjoys being an antagonist more because she’s able to play around the role.
The actress also said that a “kontrabida” can also become a protagonist and there’s a whole range of emotions involved.
“Mas nag-e-enjoy ako sa pagiging kontrabida because mas nalalaro ko po siya. Puwede na rin namang maging bida ang kontrabida, eh,” she said. “May mga times na nagpapaawa rin naman ang mga kontrabida na ginagawa ng bida.”

The actress shared that the challenge lies in the timing by which it will be delivered and the delivery of the punchline.
She also said she feels that all roles – be it good or bad – is a challenge for her, which is the reason why she makes it a point to make her portrayal in the series different from the previous portrayals.
“Kailangang mag-level up sa bawat genre na ginagawa mo kasi hindi naman puwedeng ‘yun at ‘yun din ang ipapakita mo kung bigyan ka man ng drama or action,” she said. “Kailangan lagi mong binibigyan ng bagong flavor ‘yung character mo.”
Inquirer reported that “Kurdapya” is a comedy series that is inspired by Pablo S. Gomez’s popular classic. Actress Yassi Pressman plays the dual role of Daphne and Kuring.
