Box office actress Bea Alonzo didn’t really mask her anxiety over the upcoming release of One More Chance
’s sequel A Second Chance
"Kung naca-capture lang ng camera ang kaba ko, baka nginig na nginig ako," Bea said during the recently-concluded press conference of her endorsement contract signing of Fujifilm’s product X-A2.
She confirmed that "may pressure talaga” for her movie with John Lloyd Cruz to turn out well especially with the advent of social media.
“Anyone can freely put their comments on social media. Unlike nung 2007, wala eh,” she noted.
She added: "Pero, ako kasi, parte ng trabaho namin 'yung pressure. Kung walang pressure, hindi na siya fun, hindi na siya colorful. Meron kang ganung gusto mong adrenaline rush. Masarap siya."
In a recent interview, John Lloyd clarified that the decision to have a sequel for the hit film was not his sole decision. He even underscored that it is high time that the story of what happened to Popoy and Basha after getting back together be told.
Bea for her part didn’t deny that there was some hesitation as to whether or not the sequel would meet the success of the original film.
"Sobrang fina-fight pa siya ng minds namin lahat. Hindi namin alam kung tama o ano," she said.
However, a good barometer that best told them to give the sequel a go was the release of the One More Chance book a couple of months ago.
"Naramdaman namin kung gaano nila namiss si Popoy and Basha, noong ni-launch namin yung One More Chance the novel. So nagkaroon kami ng inspiration na, ‘Uy, gusto pa rin pala nila malaman kung ano nangyari.’ So ito yung regalo namin para sa kanila," she said.
So instead of being overpowered by pressure, Bea said she hopes that their upcoming film would “inspire” since it’s very relatable.
But what does she have to say to those who believe that a sequel shouldn’t have been made about the hit film?
"Proud ako sa pelikulang ito kasi it’s something that’s really close to my heart kasi, syempre, ‘yung mga katrabaho ko matagal ko ng katrabaho," she said. “And isa ito sa talagang nagpakilala sa team up namin ni John Lloyd. So gift ito para sa lahat ng sumuporta ng One More Chance."
