The 'Eerie' star is excited to release her first horror film in theaters this month.
After her movie Eerie had its international premiere in Singapore last December, Bea Alonzo revealed she is excited to see her first horror film with director Mikhail Red finally get its Philippine theatrical run later this month. She plays a guidance counselor who bears witness to experiences mysterious occurrences inside a all-girls Catholic school set in the 90s. Bea admitted she can somewhat relate to what some of the characters in the film go through.
“Parang very close nga ito sa kabataan ko kasi meron kaming pinaniniwalaan na nag-suicide din sa loob ng CR. Pero siyempre wala naman talagang nangyari pa sa akin. Nakakatakot lang talaga. I’m sure madaming makaka-relate na mga estudyante na nag-aaral sa catholic schools kasi hindi naman mawawala yun. BIlang Pilipino naniniwala tayo sa mga ganyan hindi ba? Sa mga urban legends,” she said during the film's screening.
Aside from promoting her first movie this year, Bea has also been busy preparing for her next television project which reunites her with her A Love to Last co-star Ian Veneracion as well as having a new leading man in Richard Gutierrez. Although she can’t divulge any specific details yet, the Eerie actress shared she has been excitedly preparing for her newest role.
“I’m going to do a teleserye with Richard Gutierrez and Ian Veneracion. Medyo kakaiba yung materyal na ito so we’re training right now. But baka hindi ko pa masasabi kung kailan siya maipapalabas but soon i-a-announce din namin. This April pa lang mag-uumpisa ang taping. Nag-te-training kami for the characters. Medyo physical pero hindi ko pa ma-announce kung anong klaseng training. Masuwerte nga ako na yung mag na-o-offer sa akin na mga materyal iba ibang genres,” she remarked.
