- She is looking forward to their couple summer getaway
Bea Alonzo is undeniably the biggest star to come out from ABS-CBN’s Star Circle Batch 10 that was launched in 2001. She was a bright-eyed 13-year-old then in a group of 24 hopefuls.
Bea shines in her 18th year in the showbiz industry. What is her secret?
“I can’t say kung ano ang secret kasi hindi ko rin alam eh. Pero siguro mag-uumpisa doon sa mahalin mo muna ‘yung ginagawa mo. You have to be fulfilled. You also have to have that passion for the craft,” was her advice to young actors and actresses in show business.
The 30-year old actress revealed that, for second time, she almost thought of quitting show business.
“Talagang darating ka [doon] na mabu-burn out ka. Actually, hindi na ‘yung process of acting na ‘yung nakaka-burn out eh. It’s the system also, siyempre di ba may mga bagay – hindi naman walk in the park all the time yung trabaho natin, di ba?” came her confession.
“Kapag nangyayari sa akin ‘yon, bumabalik ako doon sa bakit ko siya ginagawa, bakit ako nandito, bakit ako inilagay sa posisyon kung nasaan ako,” dagdag ng aktres na aminadong ilang beses na rin humingi ng senyales kung dapat pa ba niyang ipagpatuloy ang pag-aartista.
Meanwhile, she is looking forward for a summer break with real-life partner, Gerald Anderson.
“Wala pa, hindi kami nakakapag-plano kasi ngayon nasa Japan siya, may ginagawa silang pelikula kasama si Julia Barretto. And then ako nga ginagawa namin itong Eerie.”
“So hindi pa namin napag-uusapan kung saan kami pupunta. Pero sana beach,” she said.
Bea is the lead star in the newest horror movie ‘Eerie’ under Star Cinema, together with Charo Santos, Jake Cuenca and Maxene Magalona, directed by Mikhail Red. The movie is now showing nationwide and other Southeast Asian countries.
