Since her much-talked-about career move not too long ago, Bea Alonzo gushes like a child full of wonder, llke everything seems new to her.
She describes to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) her first few months as a newly signed GMA-7 star as “medyo surreal.”
The former Kapamilya actress expounds, “Di ba kasi, parang ibang mundo ito? Ibang chapter ng buhay ko, parang everything’s a new beginning.
“Ngayon parang I feel like I’m in a good place, everything fell into place.
“Ngayon, parang nae-excite ako kasi parang ang daming tao kong nakikilala.”
And at 33 in a new place, the changes are refreshing, especially when she has just gotten back from her one-month vacation in the United States.
As Bea relates to the press during the launch of GMA-7’s regional TV programs, “It was so fun, parang feeling ko tuloy ang daming new discoveries about myself dito sa journey na ito.
“Masaya ako kasi at this point in my life, I am already 33, ang dami ko pang nagagawang bago.”
Bea was interviewed by the editorial team of PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) for an exclusive interview on August 17, 2021.
FIRST PROJECT AS A KAPUSO
The movie of Bea and Alden Richards—the Philippine movie adaptation of the 2001 Japanese movie Pure Soul—is in the works.
Directed by Nuel Naval, it is produced by VIVA Films, GMA Pictures, and APT Entertainment.
Bea tells PEP.ph they were supposed to start grinding in September 2021, but schedules had to be moved because of the enhanced community quarantine.
“Ganun pa rin, magshu-shoot kami ni Alden ng movie, iyong na-announce namin before, pero ngayon kasi, medyo nade-delay because of the quarantine.
“Supposedly, mag-i-start na talaga kami ng September. Ngayon, dapat naka-quarantine na kami para pumasok sa bubble.
“But right after the quarantine, I know na naka-schedule na kami for shooting so mauuna iyon.”
After the movie, Bea will return to television via an upcoming teleserye with GMA-7
FIRST KAPUSO TELESERYE
According to Bea, GMA-7 has already pitched to her a concept for her first teleserye as a Kapuso.
“I can’t tell you the details yet kasi hahayaan ko na lang sila mag-update, and I can’t tell you yet kung sinong makakasama ko.
“But it’s going to be very exciting. I’m sure lagi niyong naririnig sa akin na hindi ko pa nagagawa ito but seryoso, hindi ko pa siya nagagawa.
“Na-pitch na so may idea na ako, nag-agree na kami that I’m going to do it and it’s very very exciting.”
Will it be an adaptation of a K-Drama for which GMA-7 is known for?
Bea answers with a smile, “I don’t know, I can’t tell you. Talagang ibibigay ko yata iyong floor sa GMA para sila magsabi.
“Sorry baka mawalan agad ako ng trabaho!”
Bea signed an exclusive network contract with GMA-7 on July 1, 2021, after being a Kapamilya talent for 20 years.
She is scheduled to appear in Unang Hirit, Mars Pa More, and All-Out Sundays in the coming days.
