GMA Network board of director Annette Gozon-Valdes confirmed talks with Bea Alonzo to join the Kapuso network.
In an interview with Philippine Star, she said that the Kapuso network would gladly welcome the actress since she currently has no contractual obligations with other networks.
“Well, may talks kami with her. Let’s see kasi di ba we have a movie with her to be co-produced with Viva and APT, siya at si Alden Richards.
“And alam ko rin, Bea has no contractual obligations also anymore with any network. So, we would also love to welcome Bea in the Kapuso network.”
This was after the GMA Network executive also confirmed that Alonzo’s perennial screen partner, John Lloyd Cruz, will make his TV comeback via the Kapuso network.
Alonzo is currently set to star in a film, A Moment to Remember with Kapuso actor Alden Richards. The film is a Philippine adaptation of the 2001 Japanese drama Pure Soul. The film is under three major movie outfits–Viva Films, GMA Pictures, and APT Entertainment.
The rumors on Alonzo’s possible negotiations with the GMA Network first started when the actress announced that she is already a freelance artist.
The 33-year-old actress spent about two decades under the management of ABS-CBN’s Star Magic before she decided to leave the company in November 2020.
Her new talent manager now is Shirley Kuan.
Alonzo was a 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 one of ABS-CBN’s A-listers, a distinction for few Kapamilya artists after garnering box-office hits or top-rating shows.
Other Kapamilya A-listers include John Lloyd Cruz, Piolo Pascual, KathNiel, LizQuen, Toni Gonzaga, Coco Martin, Vice Ganda, and Sarah Geronimo.
She is known for her role in the drama series I Love Betty La Fea which premiered in 2008. The series was the Philippine adaptation of the TV sitcom Yo Soy Betty La Fea, which originated from Colombia.
She 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).
