Bea Alonzo shares what she thinks is the reason behind her hit tandem with John Lloyd Cruz.
A Second Chance
is breaking box-office records and Bea Alonzo is beyond overwhelmed. But it was not a smooth sailing journey for Bea for according to the actress, making the movie in a short span of time has been challenging. Despite some challenges, Bea remarked that with the help of director Cathy Garcia-Molina and the film writers, they were able to create and produce a beautiful movie for the viewing public.
"Kung alam niyo lang sa shooting na 'to para akong manganganak sa bawat eksena, ganon 'yung pressure, ganon 'yung pressure na meron at tsaka nahirapan si direk Cathy sa amin dito and guiding us sa characters kasi ano siya eh maikli lang 'yung panahon na ibinigay sa amin para gawin ang pelikula. We only had 36 shooting days and we were working almost everyday except Sundays so medyo una may lito pa kung paano magsha-shape 'yung charatcer mo and siyempre di ba hindi naman siya real time so bilang artista habang ginagawa mo 'yung character dapat kasama ka niyang naniniwala, kasama ka niyang nagagalit, kasama ka niyang nagkakaroon ng resolusyon. But since ang ikli lang ng panahon namin so mas extra hardwork sa amin 'yun na paniwalaan. Kung hindi dahil kay direk Cathy at sa writers hind naman magagawa," she stated.
Time and time again, Bea and John Lloyd have proven their effectiveness and power as a love team. What does she think is the "magic" behind their tandem?
"Maybe its our love for the craft and siguro 'yung value na hindi namin kinailangan na i-disillusion ang mga tao. We were very sincere from the first day na naging love team kami. We never had to pretend na we were together, na we're falling in love for each other. Siguro 'yon 'yung value na kung ano 'yung ibinibigay namin sa tao which is sincerity and love for our craft, 'yun din 'yung ibinabalik nila sa amin," Bea said.
On being tagged as this generation's movie King and Queen, Bea remarked that she does not want to be pressured by the title given to her tandem with John Lloyd. She said that she just wants to enjoy the success and the support that she is continually receiving from the people at the moment.
"Parang mas nakaka-pressure each time, hindi ko alam parang ang hirap naman ramdamin non, parang talo ka sa dulo. Pero gusto ko lang i-enjoy 'yung moment, gusto ko lang magpasalamat pero hindi siguro 'yung tipong ipre-pressure ko 'yung sarili ko. Every project na nabibigay sa akin ng Star Cinema, I just strive to be a better actress and to be a better person each time. Siguro itong project na ito isang malaking blessing na hindi ko malilimutan hanggang pagtanda ko," she shared.
