170 Bea Bianca aspirants went to the audition for the role at 2-5pm today, June 6 at the center road ABS-CBN. Star Creatives, the team behind Pangako Sa’Yo, announced
the audition a few days before.
The girls were first lined up by tens and screened based on the physical looks that would suit the character of Bea Bianca. Former actress Vanessa Del Bianco was the original Bea Bianca in the Pangako Sa Yo's original version in 2000. She was a flirty and zany third wheel to Angelo and Yna.
Some auditionees admitted not having any acting experience and some of them came from as far as Bicol just to try for the role.
Girls with acting experience like Thara Jordana, who did bit roles on Maalaala Mo Kaya and was also part of Team Lea on The Voice Philippines Season 2, also tried her luck. Another talent, Kyra Custodio, who is part of the upcoming Liza Soberano-Enrique Gil movie, Just the Way You Are, also tried for the role.
Only 40 girls passed the physical screening and were asked to act in front of a panel. From 40, only less than 10 made the short list.
As of writing, no one has been chosen for the role yet and some audionees may be asked to come back for additional tests.
