Kapamilya actress Bea Alonzo admitted that she visited an ABS-CBN executive first before she accepted her movie project with Kapuso star Alden Richards.
Bea and Alden are set to star in the Philippine adaptation of the 2004 Korean movie A Moment to Remember. Their film will be produced by Viva Films, GMA Pictures, and APT Entertainment.
According to an article by Bulgar Online, Bea made a quick visit to ABS-CBN CEO-President Carlo Katigbak to personally ask for permission to do the movie with Alden.
Bea mentioned that she wanted to ask for permission personally as a sign of respect to her home network who helped build her career.
“I think he’s a very, very good actor. Napanood ko ‘yung Hello, Love, Goodbye, sobrang galing nila ni Kathryn (Bernardo) doon,” Bea said.
The 33-year-old actress went to Katigbak’s house together with John Lloyd Cruz to talk about her supposed reunion movie.
Bea also said that before she agreed to her upcoming movie with Alden, she wanted to tell her ABS-CBN bosses first regarding her decision.
“Gusto kong hingin ‘yung blessing niya and naging ano naman sila, mabait. Even before we said yes to doing a project with Alden, nagkaroon kami ng courtesy to tell them first before we even agreed,” she said.
Bea Alonzo was part of Star Magic’s Batch 10 in 2001 along with her batchmates Dennis Trillo, Alfred Vargas, Nadine Samonte, TJ Trinidad, and Karel Marquez. She is also one of ABS-CBN’s A-listers which is a distinction for only a few Kapamilya artists for having a premium in box-offices or television ratings.
She was under Star Magic for almost 2 decades before she left the management and became a freelance artist. She is known for her role in the drama series I Love Betty La Fea which premiered in 2008. She has also starred in several Filipino films such as One More Chance (2007), The Mistress (2012), Four Sisters and a Wedding (2013), A Second Chance (2015), and Unbreakable (2019).
