Andrea Brillantes and Iza Calzado

Iza Calzado drew flak for posting a photo of Andrea Brillantes in her Instagram page and showing support for the embattled young actress. Iza Calzado has since then deleted the post and instead posted a “Keep calm” quote which says: “Keep calm and show compassion.” She captioned it: “Be kind and respectful. Show love and compassion. Alam niyo na Yan. — Mamay”

Iza Calzado and Andrea Brillantes starred together in the now defunct ABS-CBN teleserye “Hawak Kamay” with Piolo Pascual and Zaijan Jaranilla.

Iza Calzado earned the ire of many fans because instead of emulating many in the mainstream media and their talents who made a news blackout on the matter, Iza Calzado chose instead to address the issue and even went to the extent of posting a photo of Andrea Brillantes. Her fans though, defended the actress saying she was merely showing moral support for the embattled young actress whom she co-starred in a soap.
