John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo mark their 10th year anniversary as a love team with a Star Cinema movie entitled The Mistress, to be directed by Olivia Lamasan. During their cam test held at the ABS-CBN compound yesterday, April 25, it was evident that they haven’t lost their chemistry as seen in their highly-successful movies One More Chance (2007) and Miss You Like Crazy (2010). “Madaming bago kasi ilang years yung dumaan. I’m sure iba na yung sensibilities niya. Personally, I’m very excited dahil napakaganda nitong role na nag-landing sa mga palad niya,” said John Lloyd in an interview with TV Patrol.
Bea shared that working with John Lloyd is always a challenge because of his renowned dramatic prowess. “Naghahanda ako kasi iba na si John Lloyd, makakaeksena ko na naman [siya], magsusunog ka na naman ng kilay. Ten years na pala kami no? I'm so excited [and] at the same time challenged. With John Lloyd, you always need to be on your toes. Tapos yung plot, kung totoong buhay ito nangyari, very controversial. Tinatalakay nito ang infidelity kaya talagang pag-uusapan ito ng mga tao.”
The two are also gearing up for their upcoming teleserye, A Beautiful Affair, directed by Laurenti Dyogi. Direk Lauren was also at the helm of their first teleserye, Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay (2002). “Nasa planning stage na kami, then in a few weeks, pupunta kami ng Vienna, Austria para i-shoot ‘yung pilot week namin,” Bea added.
Bea and John Lloyd will also be a part of a star-studded movie for Star Magic’s 20th anniversary this year.
