Bea Alonzo says she is not surprised why women fall in love with Vic Sotto


041011-bea_main.jpgWith the upcoming April 23 playdate of the movie Pak! Pak! My Doctor Kwak!, Bea Alonzo admitted she is excited about showing the public her first all-out comedy flick. Although she is known more for her dramatic roles, the 23-year-old actress admitted she does not feel pressured being paired with an icon in Philippine comedy, Vic Sotto. “I try not to think about the pressure. Mas iniisip ko yung excitement and yung joy and happiness na nararamdaman ko na nakatrabaho ko sila and until now, ‘pag nagkikita kita kami ng ganito, imbis na maisip ko yung gagawin niyo for the rest of the day, mas excited ako na makikita ko silang lahat,” she said during the movie’s presscon held last April 7 at the Dolphy theater inside the ABS-CBN compound.

Bea said she also does not let it bother her when people ask her about how it feels that she was not the first choice for the role. “Hindi naman pumasok sa isip ko na ikumpara yung sarili ko kahit kanino and feeling ko naman the mere fact na natuloy na kasama ako, siguro that’s what’s supposed to happen. Talagang naka-plano na yun sa Taas na mapunta sa akin ang pelikula. I don’t want to compare myself to others kasi kung makikipagkumpetensya ako, siguro sa sarili ko lang,” she shared.

Bea said she was more than overwhelmed to be working with Vic, whom she never expected to be working with. “Lagi ko rin siyang napapanuod pero isa sa pinakamagandang na-discover ko sa kanya is yung hindi pala siya nakaka-intimidate. Ang sarap sa pakiramdam na isipin na parang kahit papaano naging close pa kami. Meron na akong big star na friend. Ang sarap ng pakiramdam na ma-attach sa kanila. Hindi pala mahirap na maging kumportable sa kanila, na ma-miss sila. Na pagkatapos ng lahat ng ito, na-miss ko sila. Parang nagli-linger silang lahat sa akin. Miss ko sila. In-expect ko na na magiging masaya yung experience kasi nakikita ko sila sa mga shows nila, ganyan. Pero parang nag-exceed pa sa mga expectations ko yung saya. What I didn’t expect was magiging attached ako sa kanila. Yun yung hindi ko inexpect. I knew that I was going to have fun,” she admitted.

Now that she knows how it feels to be his leading lady, Bea admitted that Vic’s charm is hard to resist. “Parang kahit naman sinong babae, lahat ng mga qualities na hahanapin mo nasa kanya na. Na-confirm ko, yun naman pala. Kaya naman pala. Kahit sino pang babae siguro tanungin niyo.”

Bea also shared the qualities she saw in Vic that make him a true ladies’ man. “Yung pagiging gentleman niya, yung pagiging maasikaso niya sa amin sa set. Talagang ipapasa pa niya sa iyo yung pagkain. Ipinagbabalot pa niya si Pokwang ng pagkain. At saka you know that he cares. Marami siyang magagandang qualities,” she explained.

Although she said she still has to hone her craft in comedy, Bea is thankful that she got to work with so many talented comedians. “Saling pusa lang ako sa kanila dito. (laughs) I just went with the flow. Hindi character ko naman dito, hindi naman ako yung nagbibigay ng punchline. Nagre-react lang ako. It wasn’t that hard naman,” she said. Bea also admitted she enjoyed working on the comedy because she also got the chance to work with a whole different set of actors. “Nakakatuwa na naging possible sa pelikula na ito na nag-merge yung dalawang network. Eto siguro yung mga moments na hindi ko makakalimutan forever. I really had fun. Ibang klaseng experience para sa akin kasi first time kong gumawa ng ganitong klaseng comedy. And I’m very, very l
